Doyle Surratt - Senior Pastor
Impact is a word I want people to use in evaluating my life. Seriously, I don’t want them to talk about how funny, nice or pleasant I was, but that my life made an impact. I define impact in two ways. The first is to crash into something with the force of collision. I would like to think that the work of my life collided with our culture’s tendency toward selfishness and self-centeredness. I hope that the way I lived my life taught others that there are alternatives to the self destructive paths around us. Another definition of impact has to do with influence or having a strong effect on others. I hope that my life will have had a positive influence by pointing people to Jesus. There are really only two choices for living: live for yourself or live for impact.
If you are reading this, there is a good chance that you have already made that choice to live for impact, and perhaps you’re ready to make an even Greater Impact. On these pages, we hope to help you find ways to do that.
Greater Impact is all about joining with others who have the same desire to do something for God. By joining our hands, hearts and resources, we can have a greater impact for God’s kingdom – much more than we could alone. Please spend time in prayer and ask God how you can be involved.
Thank you for being a part of our church! God is doing great things at SeaCoast Grace Church and we hope you will join us on this journey.
In His Service,
Greater Impact is just that, our church’s next step to making a greater impact in our church, community, and world through expanding our current facilities so more people can come and hear about Jesus Christ. Expanding our current facilities has been made possible by the love and generosity of individuals and families in our church. We thank God for their sacrifice and hope others will catch the vision of our church so that we can reach our financial goals.
In order to expand our current facilities, we need a total of $9.5 million dollars, $7 million of which will be for the construction of a new auditorium, $1.4 million for site work (grading, landscaping, and the new parking lot), $700,000 consultant costs (architects, engineers, etc.), and $400,00 for various governmental and utility company fees.
