Jubilee Christian Church International & Oasis Sober Living Program benefit from outreach
Parkland Communities believes in being a responsible corporate citizen. Last year was no exception, with the developer providing year-end gifts to two worthwhile organizations – Jubilee Christian Church International & Oasis Sober Living.
Corporate social responsibility is a cornerstone of Parkland Communities’ brand. Since its inception, the developer has donated more than $1 million to local mission-driven Christian organizations.
“Giving back to the communities where we do business is important to the entire team at Parkland Communities,” said Jim Jacobi, President of Parkland Communities. “I believe that charity starts at home, and the bulk of our philanthropic efforts include supporting mission-focused private schools, funding addiction rehabilitation, conserving nature and more.”
Jubilee Christian Church International received $85,000 from Parkland Communities to help support its growth plans. Led by Pastor Dr. Michael Adebiyi, the South Gwinnett church ministers to all nations and races locally and internationally. The church has a Youth Ministry called Scripture Café, which engages the youth in spiritual, physical and intellectual activities through fellowship, leadership training, and field trips to help them develop into well-rounded individuals that will impact their communities positively.
The development in the area presents perfect timing for the church to implement its growth plan. Between Parkland Communities’ development adjacent to the church and a separate new community a bit further down the road, 474 families will have opportunities to move to the area.
Jubilee Christian Church plans to positively impact the community by building a top-class daycare center, ministering to children, and scaling up its youth ministry.
“Jim’s generosity through Parkland Communities will allow us to welcome every family with a fruit basket as they move into the community. We hope they will see us as their spiritual growth partner and neighbor,” said Dr. Adebiyi. Every month, the church will host a welcome dinner for those who moved in that month.
The church youth’s church service, Scripture Café, offers a weekly café style contemporary youth service with coffee and other pastries available for the youths during and after worship. They share the word, pray for the cause of the week, and participate in a nationwide campus fellowship organization that prepares them for college, including applying to schools, understanding financing, and much more. One of the church’s goals is to build a sanctuary for the youth ministry.
“Jim’s donation is coming to hatch our egg and allow it to fly,” said Dr. Adebiyi. Our vision was inside a financial shell, and Jim has come to break the shell open to help us find expression. And this is just the first step. We plan to also partner with city and county stakeholders to make a more significant difference.”

Parkland Communities also made a year-end donation to Oasis Sober Living of $6,376 to support the non-profit recovery residence, which provides clean and sober living with a 12-step-based, structured environment. “Oasis” is a sister program to Breakthrough Recovery Outreach (BRO) which offers affordable housing options for individuals who cannot afford a traditional private residential treatment program but have Medicaid insurance. Oasis Sober Living is located in Tucker and is led by Director Paulette Jacobs.
