Starting in our own backyard
Serving the community
As a church body, Greenhouse Church has not only been called to missions globally, but also locally. Jesus and his followers declared the good news of the kingdom by both words and deeds. Because of this, we are committed to creating an alternative culture that declares this kingdom in both words and deed – especially to the marginalized, vulnerable, and oppressed in our city.
We embrace the call to give of ourselves and go where others are not going, and reach out and love the isolated, unreached, and those deemed untouchable by society. We currently help coordinate and facilitate multiple outreach opportunities that are focused on serving and impacting our community. Join us by getting involved!
What we do
The Greenhouse Mentoring and Tutoring Program utilizes prevention and intervention techniques to support youth in Gainesville through key school partnerships and programs that help students achieve regardless of their zip code. It also increases resources available to support sustainable community development and empowerment initiatives.
Foster Care & Adoption
Foster and Adoption Ministry (FAM) empowers and equips families and individuals to care for vulnerable children through foster care, family preservation, and when necessary to provide permanent homes through adoption. FAM also provides wrap-around compassionate care ministry to the church’s foster and adoptive families throughout their journey of walking alongside vulnerable children.
We partner with Created Gainesville to reach and restore women who have been trafficked or sexually exploited. Through outreach and rehabilitative care programs, women are given opportunities to better understand their value, beauty, and destiny in Jesus.
Kids Count combats educational inequality for kindergarten through third grade students from low-performing elementary schools through social skills development, math and literacy tutoring, and other programs designed to empower the youth of our community.
Senior Adults Outreach
We minister weekly to homebound senior adults through Sunday Worship Services at Windsor Assisted Living, and through Faithful Friends – a discipleship and companionship outreach at Parklands Care Center. We also partner with Meals on Wheels to practically care for senior adults vulnerable to food insecurity and isolation.
Neighborhood partnerships seek to empower, unify and strengthen communities through weekly kids church, youth development, leadership initiatives and community development programs in under-resourced neighborhoods. Greenhouse currently partners with three neighborhood communities in Northwest, East and Southwest Gainesville.
Greenhouse partners with multiple ministries led by church and community leaders that proclaim the gospel and form life-changing relationships within adult and juvenile detention centers. We help provide prayer, counseling and mentoring opportunities and help inmates obtain basic needs, housing, and jobs in their transition from jail or prison.

We are a movement of generosity. We aim to give 50% of all that we spend to missions, justice initiatives, church planting, and the poor. Join us in this generosity adventure.
