HOME Campaign

Welcome Home!

We recently concluded a 3 year fundraising campaign on March 31, 2022. Together, we raised $3,690,557 to complete the renovation of 22,000 square foot two story warehouse into our church home. We officially began using the space on Sunday, March 6, 2022 and look forward to the ways God will use this space to change lives for generations to come! Our remaining balance is $78,000. While our official campaign has concluded, we welcome any gifts to help with the remaining balance. You can learn more about our exciting project by scrolling below.

Opening Doors for a New Generation

Letter from Matt

Read an update from Pastor Matt

Dear Flood Family,

Grace and peace to you! The pandemic has lasted longer and impacted our families and communities more deeply than anyone could have predicted. Despite the challenges we’ve faced, I see God’s power and provision all around. We’re humbled by the loving, selfless acts of Christ-centered hope and healing happening in our community. I’m reminded of the generosity we see modeled by the early church in Acts 2:42-47, as they were living in the midst of difficult circumstances. As we seek creative ways to gather in person, I see this same generosity alive and well in our church stretched across San Diego and beyond!

When it comes to the last 21 years and having a place to call home, we have been on quite the journey! From our humble beginnings in a gymnasium at College Avenue Baptist Church, to being a mobile church at Kearny High School for 14 ½ years, to being online-only for 11 months, to meeting under a tent and now back to College Avenue … we have experienced many changes over the years, yet our vision has remained the same. We want to be a community where people are equipped and encouraged to be a movement of Christ’s hope and healing in our world. We want to build a permanent home for generations of Jesus followers to love God, love one another and love our neighbor. Thanks to your faithfulness, we are on our way to making this vision a reality! 

Since launching our HOME campaign in March 2019, we’ve raised $3.1 million dollars, hired a team of project managers, architects, and contractors, submitted building plans to the City of San Diego, completed demolition, and have nearly completed construction on our brand new church home. God has been so faithful! I am more convinced than ever that God will use our new church home to further His hope and healing in and through Flood. This season has also reinforced how vital it is for our church to own our ministry space to meet the needs of our church family and community well. 

This journey will continue to require unparalleled God-dependence, as we surrender our desires into God’s unequaled goodness and care. To the more than 200 of you who made a pledge 28 months ago and have been faithfully fulfilling it, thank you! We wouldn’t be here without you. For those who haven’t made a gift yet, we still need to raise $1,100,000 and I ask you to join those faithful givers and give a gift to our new building. We also welcome any advancements of pledges and/or increases to existing pledges or additional one time gifts. I understand that this may be a financially uncertain time for you, which is why we ask not for equal giving, but equal sacrifice. As Jesus taught us, the gift of the widow’s mite (Luke 21:1-4) is precious in God’s sight! 

Thank you for taking the time to learn about what we’ve accomplished and what’s in store for our next chapter. Thank you for being a part of Flood Church!

Journeying together,

Having a place to call our own will help us fulfill our vision of being a home of followers of Jesus for generations to come. It also opens the door of possibility of what we could do to create a worship space that is as creative as our Creator. Below are some initial concepts for the space.
