In order to generate funds for new facilities, the Church agreed to sell part of its property to a non-profit housing developer. Thus the master plan began with the development of a 1.4 acre housing project for the mentally handicapped on the northern part of the Church's generous 5.3 acre site.

The Church plans to develop and enlarge its current modest accommodations to include a day care center, religious school, offices, fellowship hall, meeting rooms, commercial kitchen, and a new sanctuary. The new sanctuary will take advantage of the panoramic view of Mount Diablo. Guided by the congregation's worship of nature, the new facility will be nestled amongst thematic gardens and landscaped outdoor-rooms such as a palm court, an arbor, and a biblical garden.

This exciting master plan has been split into five phases, beginning with design and construction of the housing project, which commenced construction in April 1993. Phased development will permit ongoing use of existing Church facilities during construction. Complete implementation and construction of the Church's master plan facilities is estimated at $3,038,000.
