We are a different and refreshing church helping people far from God come alive in Christ.
Dave and Amy Carroll, along with their four boys, moved to Billings from South Florida in June of 2012 to begin launching Elevation Church. The church launched on March 31, 2013, and had an average attendance of 115 in the first month. Since that time, we have taken large steps of faith to see 450 professions of faith, 205 baptisms and over 400 in attendance. It has been a crazy ride. In the process of planting the church, Dave endured a retinal bleed in his right eye and painful optic nerve trouble in both eyes. Through the entire journey God has proven Himself faithful and has been kind to see our work become fruitful.
You might look at what has happened and ask, “How can I really help?” The truth is, we are still a church plant in several ways while at the same time feeling like an established church on Sunday mornings.
We are in the process of raising a $300,000 down payment to purchase our current worship space. The space is a 26,000 square foot warehouse, which we currently lease, on one of the busiest streets in Montana. In 2014, with no real place to go, we took a step of faith to lease this building, which was almost 150% of what our church received in monthly giving. Because of this faith step, we are a church of 400+ with only one paid full-time staff and a volunteer staff of 9 people.
When you help our young church, you are providing support to a team of people who are serving their hearts out for no compensation to advance the gospel in Montana.
In addition to our building, funds given to provide full or part-time staff opportunities are very helpful.
Our one-acre property is being upgraded step by step. We fully welcome teams who have a heart for quality work and can help participate in bringing resources to projects.
Sending Church Planting Interns
We LOVE church planting interns. We will gladly host and train individual or couples who might consider church planting in Montana, our region or even the western United States in general. We prefer to work through the MTSBC or NAMB in partnering with your church for internships. Consider giving your life away for the cause of Christ in Montana!
Thank you for considering our work in Montana. When you partner with Elevation Church in Billings, you can be sure we will work and pray to utilize your missions effort to effectively advance the gospel. Montana is a great mission field in need of your partnership!
