Ascend Recovery

Freedom Church

$10,000

We are planning to plant a Church in South Meridian (or wherever God opens the door). Freedom Church has a vision to see people set free in Christ Jesus, together. The launch team is forming and interest meetings will begin in the fall of 2024.

Discipleship Wing

$10,000

Ascend needs to expand. On Sunday mornings we are out of Children’s Ministry space and general parking. During the middle of the week, we are also out of classroom space for groups to meet.  Therefore, we are continuing our work to develop our property by starting the next phase, a discipleship wing.

In 2025, Lord willing, we would like to expand our parking with a drive way on Floating Feather and add a wing of classroom for Ascend Kids and other meeting room spaces.

Master Plan Phase 2

On Mother’s Day 2006, we had our first service in the newly built building at the corner of Park Lane and Floating Feather (current building). The church struggled in the years following because of the 2008 economic collapse that destroyed the housing market globally, but very specifically in west Eagle.

FUTURE EXPANSION

Our mission to help people experience Jesus will continue to expand until our property is fully developed.  After the next phase above, there will be time and work to complete our master plan for 3838 W Floating Feather Rd, Eagle, ID 83616.

Meet Our Missionaries

Monthly Partners

Each month, we support 17 missionaries and partners locally and around the world with 10% of tithes/offerings.
