Mount Olivet is in the final phase of fund raising to complete the addition to the Minneapolis Campus. With construction slated to begin in May, the project needs over one million dollars to fully cover the cost. Our Development Office is in conversation with several potential donors to help finish the project. Please contact Mari Carlson if you can be the angel who can put us over the top. We are also seeking $400,000 to furnish the music rehearsal room, offices, library, and new classrooms for Sunday School.
Yes, two campaigns are going on simultaneously, both part of the original campaign effort. We know people may be drawn to one or the other and, hopefully, many will support both campaigns. Some have asked about expectations for those who gave in the first campaign. There are no specific expectations, only hopes that those who did not give to the first campaign might be moved to join in this effort. Those who gave initially might be moved to provide additional support. All gifts will enhance the values and the grace-centered and life-giving Gospel emphasis of Mount Olivet: One Church, Two Campuses.

The Mpls Campus East Addition will provide an expanded rehearsal room designed to accommodate our larger choirs and additional rooms for the growing music department. It will also provide much needed and enhanced learning spaces for Children and Family Ministries, Confirmation and Adult Learning.
Some Highlights of The Mps Campus East Addition
The rehearsal hall on level four will have an 18-foot ceiling with nine risers and ten rows of seats, which will allow the Cathedral Senior Choirs to rehearse in service formation.
A large space for Confirmation use and Adult learning will be the large classroom totaling 2,100 SF that is directly under the rehearsal hall at level two (street level).
The exterior design will maintain the mid-century modern expression of the existing gym, offices and classroom wing of the church.
All new rooms on the east façade of the addition will have windows to maximize the opportunity for day light into these spaces.
