World Headquarters Building Updates
Seven images have been posted on the Headquarters Complex page.
Please note that the campus photos posted each Friday have been reduced and will soon be phased out, as many site projects have come to completion. Periodic postings may return when additional stages of campus development get underway.
Behind the Work 2014 – “Preparing for the Greatest Work”
This year’s truly extraordinary film “Behind the Work 2014 – ‘Preparing for the Greatest Work’” highlights all that is The Restored Church of God—its Work, purpose and future—giving viewers an inside look at the Church’s most dramatic year of growth in every regard.
The film documents the continued development of a Headquarters campus, growth of worldwide television, the expansion of the Agriculture Education and Research Institute, and many other dynamic elements of the Church’s outreach efforts. “Behind the Work” will particularly bring back fond memories of a previous era’s high standards for those with a Worldwide Church of God background—and stand in stark contrast to other films produced today.
Ambassador Youth Camp 2014 a Great Success!
More than 85 campers, staff members, and administrators from across five continents had the opportunity to attend Ambassador Youth Camp (AYC), a two-week program sponsored by The Restored Church of God.
This year, the camp’s eighth in existence, AYC was held in the woods of central Ohio at the Richland Rural Life Center, in the city of Mansfield. The site offered a more spacious dining hall, updated cabins, and the opportunity for campers to participate in new activities, such as a highly anticipated treetop zipline tour and archery lessons. Daily morning lectures stressed the importance of applying biblical standards, developing true values, and making positive choices. Campers also took part in traditional team sports such as volleyball, indoor soccer, and softball, and well as classes including line and ballroom dancing, writing, art and grammar.
Camp ended with a memorable final banquet at the Hall of Administration during which campers and staff participated in an engaging question-and-answer session about their experiences and performed a variety of farewell songs they wrote for the occasion.
For all participants, it was truly a life-changing event!
