January 26, 2019 Update: Location is one of the most-asked questions we receive, and we are working to answer it as quickly and thoroughly as possible. We have been speaking with several churches, trying to discern if TRCA would fit well within their facility.
As we think through the question of where to hold the academy, here are the factors we have in mind:
- Suitable spaces for education (classrooms, gym/activity room, etc.)
- Safety & Security (exterior and interior, access and egress)
- Equipment & Storage (decorations, desks, chairs, etc.)
- Accessibility (location and driving distances within the DSM metro)
- Relationship with the host church (schedules, finances, etc.)
As we look toward our first year, it is possible that our initial location will be temporary – only the first year or two. It is also possible that we have multiple sites within the next several years. But for now, we are focused on finding a location suitable to our “launch year.”
Once we reach a final decision and agreement with a host church, we will be able to finalize our budget and tuition, and we will know which days of the week we will meet (our preference is for Mondays and Wednesdays, but this depends upon the availability of the church facility).
We are working hard and are hopeful that we will be able to hold our February 16 Launch Meeting at the host church, so that you can tour the facility. Coming out of that Launch Meeting, we intend for an advisory team to take on addition planning related to TRCA’s use of the facility.
Please pray with us, and if you know of available locations, please don’t hesitate to make suggestions and introductions!
