Genesis Restoration from Hurricane Ian

Campaign Created by: Karmen Loney

The funds from this campaign will be received by Genesis Christian Church of the Nazarene.

Goal: USD $100,000
Raised: USD $ 7,940

Hurricane Ian ravaged much of Southwest Florida, including our community of Port Charlotte. People are in such need! Many are without homes, or in homes that need massive amounts of restoration. We have been out helping people and passing out crisis care kits and we want to do so much more. We would love to be able to accept donations to keep passing on to others, but the reality is we need help ourselves. "The Gathering Place", where we would be able to set up a help station, has roof damage and we are still without power. Our church and school have compromised ceilings, a tree went through the kindergarten classroom, the middle school classroom lost it's roof. Our preschool-8th grade education is paused until we can get everything fixed and safe. This has impacted the families of our ~120 kids who are also dealing with damage themselves. 

Through it all we are so thankful for the Lord's protection of our congregation, and school staff and students! We are counting our blessings and are so grateful for what we DO have. 

If you'd like to learn more about who we are and what we stand for, please visit: or

We are also on Facebook: Genesis Christian Church of the Nazarene and Genesis Christian School. 

Could you help us bare this financial burden?

Any support would be very much appreciated.

We are so thankful for the progress to our classrooms!

- The middle school room has a 1 year patch on the roof & the inside has been taken down to the studs (almost everywhere) & rebuilt. The paint is drying & carpet is going on tomorrow!!

- The kindergarten roof has been patched & the walls have been re-drywalled & painted. New carpet went down & the desks & chairs are being moved back in! 

- School is on track to start again Monday the 24th!! 

-Please continue to pray for us as we accept a roofing quote for the church & then can work on re-building the foyer & other areas. 

-We appreciate the love & support & prayers. God is good & he is making a way!

We have found out our current insurance won't cover the extent of the damage. Your support is extremely helpful as we move forward. Thank you.
