The Community of the Cross is our place that has been set apart by the Father for encountering all He calls there with the love, power, grace and saving work of Jesus Christ.
It is our place where we equip and send people to advance the Kingdom of God around the world.
On August 27, 2018, a devastating fire destroyed the back half of the Log House, rendering it unusable in serving the mission of the Community of Cross – a place of encounter with Jesus Christ.

What your gift will do
Your gift will allow for:
- expansion and dry enclosure of a new meeting room to replace the back porch,
- the enlargement of the kitchen,
- the upgrade of bathrooms (with level floors and all new subflooring)
- two additional bedrooms and one bathroom for our guests.
- Removal of chimney from the back porch, giving us more room for eating/teaching, and one of the staircases will be removed in the center room.
Your gift will allow for a completely new roof on the entire structure, so guests will no longer have to chase drip pans from the kitchen during a summer downpour.
Your gift will help create a context for people to encounter Jesus in a beautifully restored and expanded Log House.
Life changing encounters with Jesus will happen again with your help at the Community of the Cross.
Designate your giving to the “Log House Restoration and Fire Recovery” no matter which way you choose to donate.
Matching Gift Goal Achieved before the August 10 deadline
As of Wednesday, July 24th we have received $79,435 for the Log House in response to the $50,000 matching gift challenge given to PRMI.
This means $129,435 has been donated through July 24th to complete the building project. We have met the budget!
We know there are still checks in the mail and gifts on their way to us. Thank you. These will be over and above the matching gift campaign, but will continue to fund the log house project like furnishings and other projects needed (like fixing the front steps!).
Funds received in excess of the matching gift will be used for additional Log House projects or furnishings.
