We have some updates to share with all of you! Watch the video below for the full scoop:
Our tentative plan is to open the prayer room at the end of June. Stay tuned for updates about an exact date!
Our Needs: Fundraising, Donations, and Volunteers
We’ve currently raised $38,000 of our goal of $67,000! Praise the Lord! We cannot say thank you enough for your donations and investment into this space and community. Every dollar matters!
Why are we fundraising?
Franklin Prayer House is fundraising one year of rent. This will provide us with a one year “runway” to dream of innovative ways to utilize the space and create a sustainable model going forward. Not having the pressure of raising rent every month also allows us to focus our energy and attention on building the Prayer Room itself and fulfilling the vision of housing worship and prayer in the heart of downtown Franklin. We want this first year in the space to set the stage for the future to come!
Franklin Prayer House has never been an organization that has had monthly recurring costs. No leaders receive money from Franklin Prayer House, and that will remain the same. Having a space of our own offers up so many opportunities and possibilities, and we are excited about what God is doing and what He will continue to do!
How you can partner with us:
We have many needs and are seeking the partnership of our community in these areas:
