Building Usage Policy

Quest Church has been richly blessed with a beautiful facility. The hopes and prayers of our church is that God will allow us to utilize this facility to reach our community and those that are not currently attending a church of their own and help all to become “fully devoted followers of Christ.” The building itself is just a tool to help us accomplish our mission. The people of Quest are the true work of the ministry. 

However, our facility makes much of our ministry possible and therefore the building must be handled with great skill, care, diligence, wisdom, and prayer. Included in this statement are general guidelines that reflect our values as a church. We ask, that as you use the facility, you treat it with great care and respect as you would your home, as this is our church home and it is used to do great work for the Kingdom of God. 

Our main sanctuary is our largest space available, and is frequently used for classes, conference, meetings, seminars, speaking engagements, support groups parties/celebration, small intimate weddings, small receptions, special events, bridal/baby showers, worship nights, talk shows, book releases, album releases, and so much more… 

 

The Church is equipped with a complete sound system, audio-visual equipment, some stage lighting is in place and microphones (including stands) are also available for rent. Groups that require risers or a stage must bring their own. The maximum seating capacity is 100 persons.

 

An appointment is required to view our facilities. Please read on below for more information about use of Quest facility. We look forward to working with you on your rental space needs.
