What’s next for NewSpring Greenville?

Every Sunday, NewSpring Greenville loads in and out of the TD Convention Center waiting and praying for a permanent church home. Two miles down the street, leaders at Eastlan Baptist Church pray for the children’s wing to echo with the pitter-patter of little feet. 

In 2018, God is answering both of our prayers as Eastlan joins the NewSpring family. 

Just before Christmas, Eastlan’s members voted to allow NewSpring to adopt them into our family. Members of the two congregations will become one, and NewSpring will take ownership of Eastlan’s assets and liabilities. 

While there are still many details to work out, the plan is to renovate Eastlan’s 11-acre campus and for our new family to worship together on Sundays.  

So How Did We Get Here?

We have prayed for a permanent location in Greenville for years. When presented with this unique opportunity, we knew it was from the Lord.

Our churches share a burden to reach the people of Greenville and build God’s kingdom. We even shared the same mission statement — to connect people to Jesus and each other. 

As our church leaders sought God and discussed the possibilities, we knew becoming one family was God’s plan for our people and our city.  

Moving forward, we’ll be known as NewSpring Eastlan (or the Eastlan Campus). This name best fits our new family. It honors those who have invested in this community for decades and looks forward to our future together.  

Will It Feel Like NewSpring?

NewSpring has always been one church in many locations. We have met in homes, schools, hotel ballrooms, YMCAs, and convention centers. While every building looks different, the environment and experience still feel like NewSpring. NewSpring Eastlan won’t be any different. 

As a result of your generosity and stewardship, we are renovating the Eastlan Campus with money we've saved for campus development. Your investment in the local church will help to bring new life into Eastlan’s sanctuary, chapel, and meeting spaces. 

There’s no timeline for construction yet. We enjoy a great relationship with the TDCC, and we have the ability to remain there as long as we need to. So be on the lookout for more updates as plans move forward.

What About Greer?

Greenville is one of the fastest growing cities in South Carolina and the United States. As Greenville continues to grow, we hope to outgrow the sanctuary at Eastlan. 

God is doing something incredible in Greenville. Our prayer is that as NewSpring Eastlan grows, God will make a way for us to open a campus 15 miles away in Greer.

NewSpring purchased property in Greer in 2013. While we still believe a Greer Campus is a next step for our church, we are committed to developing campuses without taking on more debt. So as the Lord provides and our church continues to give generously, we will move forward with building in Greer.
