Living Springs Church & CPMS

About This Project

Living Springs Church is a small neighborhood church of less than 50 congregants with a total land size of approximately 2.5 acres (useable acreage 1.75). InSite EFS assisted in the church in forming a mutually beneficial partnership with College Preparatory Middle School, a nonprofit charter school with approximately 500 students.



  • In 2014, 40-year-old Living Springs Church identified that with its dwindling congregation, the organization needed a new strategy for its property usage. However, the church, although relatively small, was still active and required a weekly place to meet on Sundays and one weekday night.
  • In 2014, College Preparatory Middle School was a growing charter school organization located at a temporary campus not far from Living Springs Church. The school had outgrown its facility and needed to purchase a permanent property for its campus.



InSite EFS structured a partnership between the two organizations that allowed Living Springs Church to sell its property to College Preparatory Middle School, while also giving Living Springs a long-term permanent home at the property. Once sold, the property was redeveloped into a beautiful school campus with space for the church to meet.



The proceeds of the sale allowed Living Springs Church to remain financially sustainable for many years to come, while still being able to have services at the newly redeveloped property for the long term. College Preparatory Middle School will be able to serve its 500-plus students and provide them a safe, productive, and inclusive permanent environment.
