Our Legacy

OUR LEGACY

This page is in honor of 117 years of people who offered their lives in service to people coming to know the Lord in Northern Madison County Indiana, without whom The Church At Broadway Park would not have been discerned and pursued.  All who come to know the Lord at Broadway Park henceforth stand in communion with those who were before.

Early 1900's

The Beginning

In 1901, a couple named Paul and Louise Haas moved to Alexandria, Indiana to get a job. There was no Church of God congregation there, so Louise began teaching her children in their home.  It wasn’t long before she felt a burden to do the same for the other children in their neighborhood. Thus began the 117-year life-cycle of the Alexandria Church of God.

The Last Century

Through the ups and downs that come with being the Church, the congregation faithfully pursued its mission.  The numerous staff who helped to lead the church through this nearly six-score history obediently guided the congregation through the Great Depression, the Great Wars, the great cultural changes in the 1960s and 1970s, the great technological boom of the 1980s and 1990s, and the Great Recession of the early 2000s.  But in the 2010s, the congregation sought to make a great change.

Ministry Consultation

Recognizing that the Lord is still at work in the community of Alexandria but that the congregation was in decline, the congregation enlisted the advice of Jeff Matas (of Indiana Ministries of the Church of God) and Paul Strozier (Senior Pastor of Madison Park Church of God).  After months of conversation and consideration, the Leadership Team of the congregation recommended that the organization formally conclude its mission and offer all of its resources–financial, property, and (most importantly) themselves–to reconsider a new mission that could align with what the Lord was up to in her neighborhood.

A New Mission

On October 28, 2018 the congregation voted unanimously to adopt this plan which included the valiant decisions to disband its staff, close its doors, and go “underground” for four months to pray, train, re-tool, and prepare to become a new congregation with a new name and a new vision.
