Through the Forward campaign, we are seeking to faithfully follow God as he drives us forward— for our church family, for our city, and for our Doxa dream— through the purchase of a building in the heart of Madison.

The story of Doxa began in 2016, when Rob and Lisa Warren first felt the call to plant a church in the city of Madison, Wisconsin. At that time, all they had was a dream and a prayer that God would provide. The Warrens joined the Salt Network and God began forming a launch team of staff, community members, and recent college graduates, all excited to see a church planted in Madison. He also provided the resources necessary to make it happen, including regular meeting locations at the Sheraton Hotel and Gordon Event Center on campus. In this first year we've seen lives changed, people saved, and new leaders raised up, all for Jesus' glory. Through it all, God has been our sole provider, and we've sought only to stay in the passenger seat as He drives us forward.

We believe God is moving us forward once again.

In June of 2019, our leadership was approached with the opportunity to purchase a building and make ourselves a permanent home here in Madison. We've always known we'd some day need to purchase a building, and while earlier than expected, this building costs half of what we ever expected to pay, is twice as large as we'd ever expected to find, and is three times closer to the city than we ever expected to land. It seemed clear to us that God was providing once again. All that said, we're excited to officially make this building in the heart of Madison our new, permanent home.

Forward for our family

This building will provide a permanent home for our current church family, as well as the ability to grow. It will also provide a safe space for our kids, housing dedicated children facilities and allowing us to expand our reach to Madison's middle and high school youth.

FORWARD FOR OUR CITY

Half the building will retain the trampolines, rockwall, and meeting spaces from the previous owners, poising us to act as a community center for the city of Madison. We've already begun forming partnerships with schools, non-profits, and other local ministries in order to bless our community through this facility.

Forward For Our Dream

Our dream has always been to become a mother-church, not a megachurch, seeing churches planted throughout the state, nation, and world. With this facility, we will be able to equip leaders and send out future church planting teams. We can truly become a hub for gospel movement in the state of Wisconsin and beyond.
