My dear EAS Family!

I want to begin by thanking you so much for your patience, words of encouragement, and faithful prayers! I am beyond grateful for each and every one of you!

With that, we are excited to announce we have found and are pursuing what we hope to be our next EAS facility!!  Located on the southwest corner of Baseline and Cooper, at the Gilbert Commons Shopping Center and just behind Golden Coral, this 15,000 sq ft facility will allow us space not only for all of our classrooms, but also a Black Box Theatre.  We are currently negotiating the lease details and designing our build out!  We could not be more excited.   

Realizing this process is going to take us a bit more time, Vineyard Gilbert and Proclaim churches have BOTH generously offered their facilities for our use this Fall as the details surrounding our new space are solidified.  I couldn't be more humbled by their belief in our vision and desire to support us in this way!

This means we are going to need to postpone the launch of our classes by two weeks, which makes our first class open on August 20th. Please watch for our updated schedule, based on space availability at Vineyard (Warner/Cooper) & Proclaim (Guadalupe/Dobson) Churches, in the next two days.  We ask for your prayers as we diligently attempt to make minimal schedule changes for those of you that have already registered, 

With that, I just want to say once again how excited we are about our future and equally grateful for your patience and support as we continue this faith-filled journey of following God!  Please continue to keep us lifted up in prayer, as we negotiate details with the owners, work with our architect and general contractor, and pursue varying skilled technicians to assist with the implementation of design for what we hope to be our new facility.

Can't wait to see you all in two weeks!!!

In His Service,
