The Nightingale Campus


Phase 1: A Place of Permanence

The dream of attaining The Nightingale as a permanent location for Upper Room Ministry started in early 2020. After many prayers and conversations, the opportunity to purchase the building resurfaced in late 2022. We are overjoyed to announce that by God's timing and the generosity of our church this permanence has been made possible. Through your faithfulness to this ministry, we were able to purchase the building in cash, leaving us free from debt. Buying a building is a BIG deal! We are immensely grateful for every prayer, every dollar, and every hand that has gone into completing this phase of the process.

Phase 2: A Plan to Renovate

God has gifted us a huge blessing with The Nightingale and there is lots of good work to be done! The beginning phase of renovations will include community vision meetings, interior/exterior repairs to the building, optimizing the parking area, and wiring electrical throughout the property.

As a result of these developments, we will have safely secured a permanent location for our staff offices, small group meetings, and student/church-wide ministry events.

Phase 3: A Place to Gather

As we think forward with a community-focused mindset, the third phase of The Nightingale Initiative would consist of updates to the flooring, kitchen space, main gathering areas, and outdoor landscaping. God has placed it on our ministries' heart to serve as more than just a meeting place for Sundays. We hope to equip the community at large with spiritual counseling resources, youth development programs, and weekly services for both students & adults.

Phase 4: A Plan to Grow

Beyond establishing The Nightingale as a resource center for ministry, we see the potential for structural expansion beyond the current state of the building. Expansion would allow for more church planters, missionaries, and outreach opportunities.


We are so excited about our NEW Nightingale campus coming to Gulf Breeze.
We are currently remodeling this campus, and hope to be able to add services sometime in 2023. Click below to help us make this possible!


As our community continues to grow, we are praying that The Nightingale can be an integral resource to our area. A place that will bring students, parents, and families closer to knowing the Lord and the purpose He has for their lives. Stay tuned for upcoming events, meetings, and opportunities to serve! We are looking forward with a gracious heart to all that the Lord has in store for this project!
