Vision 150

In 2013, when the previous church building was closed due to structural deficiencies, the plan for a new facility was launched. Through prayer and thoughtful decisions, in 2015 the church leaders, along with our pastor, foresaw the VISION 150 capital campaign. Given the location of Mt. Level on the corner of Denfield Street and Hebron Road, we are endeavoring to establish a complex that meets the needs, not just of our congregation, but also of the surrounding community. With approximately 650 members, we believe our faithful efforts will produce dynamic results.

About our Community

Mt. Level is located in northern Durham with the following neighborhood demographics from the 2014 American Community Survey

  • 15% of families with single parents
  • 18% of families with chidren under the age of 9
  • 10% of residents are over the age of 65
  • 22.4% of residents live under the national poverty level
  • 19% of our neighbors are without health insurance
Development Plan

It is the future William C. Turner, Jr. Community Family Life Center to be constructed in four (4) strategic Project Pillars

  • Community Outreach
  • Strengthening Families
  • Education and Development
  • Health and Wellness

Our building complex will be comprised of four areas

  • Gymnasium/Multipurpose Room
  • Smart Classrooms and Learning Spaces
  • Fellowship Hall
  • Administrative offices

With this facility, we aid in addressing the pressing needs of "the least of these" in the northern Durham community.

Partner with the VISION

Partners aid in fueling every aspect of the ministry that Mt. Level is called to do in northern Durham. Because God desires that we develop loving, caring relationships in which we strengthen one another, we welcome you to be a VISION 150 partner. While any amount donated is welcomed, there are giving levels that partners will be placed.  All donations are tax deductible.

Checks and money orders can be made payable to Mt. Level Missionary Baptist Church with the memo line VISION 150.

From Our Pastor

We are committed Christians who believe our mission under God includes serving our community. Currently,we are involved in a development program called Vision 150 which will enable us to extend the mission more fully. 

The time has long since come to obey the Lord’s command:

To be responsible disciples of Jesus Christ, our options are limited. We must take “spiritual custody” over the space in which we have been planted. There is no way to justify sitting on the corner if all we do is preach, sing, praise and fellowship. By these means we are given power, energy and vigor, but with the word that gives identity is a calling to go into all the world, and the world begins at home. All we need to do is look around to see that nothing has been provided for the people in our immediate zip code but houses, mortgages, and debt.

We are lovers of all God’s people.  Our commitment is to do all within our power to resource and strengthen families, enrich the lives of the young, and support the aged.  We do not construe our mission narrowly.  Rather, we understand it to encompass the broadest dimensions of personal and corporate life: worship, work, education, recreation; social, political and economic concerns. None of us exist on an island. 

Together we seek, with the help of God, to make life better for us all
