Located in Yuba City, California, just north of Sacramento, Adventure Church is an Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA) church plant.
The 10-year-old congregation first met in a school, where they had to set-up and take down equipment each week. Then the church moved into a warehouse where they leased space.
This was a better situation than renting space in a school, but the church was “praying that God would open the door for us to get into something permanent,” said Greg Mansur, lead pastor of Adventure Church.
God was already working on a unique solution to their permanent space challenge.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the local bowling alley closed, which presented an opportunity for Adventure Church to finally find its permanent home.
“Because of the incredible help we received from CIF,” Mansur said, “we were able to quickly and expeditiously walk through the process of purchasing a 45,000 square foot building on five acres of property with 300 parking spaces.”
And the church is “thrilled” to be in its first permanent space.
“We were so grateful to have a partner in CIF …. They were the experts,” Mansur concluded. “They were patient with us, they were understanding, they were super clear in their communication …. We could not recommend highly enough the great people at CIF.”
