City Roots Project

City Roots- Slide




Cultivating Gospel Presence for Generations

The Lord has been blessing our downtown community and ever-growing ministries these past nine years. We believe the Lord is now calling us into an even deeper and more permanent presence by purchasing our entire building and renovating it to suit our growing needs. We'd like you to learn more and prayerfully partner with us in this effort to bring restoration to our downtown Gainesville, Florida community.


Project Vision

Our City Roots vision is to see all people become rooted and established in the love of God; to be hands and feet of Christ as He draws hearts to Him and grows us for His glory.

"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of His glory he may grant you to be
strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith - that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen

-Ephesians 3:14-21 


Our long-term goal is to renovate and use our entire building in three phases.

  • Phase 1: Children's Ministry Suite
  • Phase 2: Sanctuary, Foyer, Prayer Room, Flex Room, Kitchen
  • Phase 3: Adult Ed Classrooms, Multipurpose Room, Offices & Admin

To do all three phases without additional debt, we need to raise a total of $2.5M.

Through your generosity and commitments so far, we have raised enough for Phase 1!

The next milestone is to raise funds for Phase 2: the new sanctuary, lobby, prayer room, flex room, kitchen, and more.

To reach our next milestone, we need to raise $1.2M in addition to current gifts and pledges.
