Current Campaign Focus
H2OKids Classroom Space
Our new building will include seven classrooms, H2OKids area bathrooms, Check-In location for parents, checkin location for H2OKids volunteers, nursing mother's room and storage for the H2OKids ministry. Classrooms for walking age to 2nd Grade will include bathrooms in each classroom and a wash station. This focus also contains our H2OKids Experience area where they will gather for worship and other activities.
We will lead the way with Irrational Generosity.
We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive.
This building is not a want, it is a need for H2O.Church. This will be a new, more effective tool to help us reach the lost broken and disconnected people in our community and Lead them to become Fully Devoted followers of Christ.
In 2006 H2O.Church was founded with a partnership…
A group of people in Ada, Oklahoma were looking to create something different in their community. They saw an inspiring movement in Life.Church and how they were reaching the Oklahoma City area and they desired to partner with them to prepare the way for something fresh and exciting in Ada. From those conversations, H2O.Church and the LifeChurch.tv Network was born.
H2O.Church began on the corner of Main and Broadway in 2006. From there the church grew quickly and even with three experience times, the building was at capacity. In 2012 H2O.Church expanded to the building next door adding much needed adult and children’s space. Since then H2O has grown to 1,100 in attendance during large weekends and has once again outgrown our location.
In 2015 H2O purchased 11 acres of land at Cradduck and 32nd Street to begin the next chapter for H2O.Church.
Over the last 11 years, the Network has grown to over 100 churches all over the world and has had a few name changes along the way. Then in 2016 the Network became the Open Network and now thousands of churches all over the world can access the same content and resources all for free. This movement started right here at H2O.Church.
Why are we building?
Plain and simple, we view this new building as a tool. A better and more efficient tool for reaching our community and leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
As a part of H2O.Church you are a part of a growing church that is seeing lives made new every single week. We currently offer 3 experiences and use our current facility to its full potential. In order to steward the blessing of the growth of H2O.Church that the Lord has blessed us with, we must step into this season of building.
By God’s grace, your faithfulness and good stewardship over the past several years, we are in a very healthy position to begin this building process without any negative impact on our ministry focus.

The total project is $4,860,725 and will take approximately 12-16 months to complete. We currently have $1,000,000 in savings for the building project and expect $280,000 to accumulate in that savings over the next 14 months. 10% of every tithe dollar is set aside for this project along with the money given to Spaces & Places.
Reaching our campaign goal will remove the burden of debt so we can put all of our energy and resources into reaching the lost, broken and disconnected and lead them to become fully devoted followers of Christ!
