Ebenezer Christian Reformed Church

This older suburban church decided not to move to more distant suburbs as most mainline churches had done, but to adapt its ministry and leadership to reflect the changing surrounding community. They decided to stay and keep the local testimony planted by investing and fanning the flame of its youth ministry by providing a new gymnasium, youth offices, and classrooms. The community government welcomed the expanding youth ministry and helped accommodate a significant zoning change. The adjacent new architecture complemented the original style with a refreshing front that has helped enliven the congregation. The youth ministry has thrived, and many souls have been reached for Christ.
