Dear Discovery Church,
What exciting days we live in! During our family dinner in July, we spoke with our church about the process God has led us and our Eldership around the potential redevelopment of the land we have been called to steward at 89/91 Monbulk Road.
We dream of a community hub, in use 7 days a week, for the blessing and benefit of our local community and the flourishing of our city. We see “Every heart found in Jesus’ story” — a story that begins and ends with the Son of God and His finished work which continues to impact lives, everywhere.
It is the purpose of this guide to help frame our conversation and discernment, so that we together might hear God’s will, align with His heart, and set our hands to work towards His vision for our region.
This redevelopment plan will have our wider community at the forefront, as we consider those needs before our own.
As our conversations progress, there very well may be times and occasions in which we call the church to specific and focused prayer and discernment (and perhaps even decision), based on what doors open before us. We will keep you updated along the way as things unfold.
But for now, we’d love you to join us as we connect our hearts and minds in unity before the King of Kings, as we long to see His will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Grace and peace,
Jody and Matt Destry
