On October 30, 2014, The Restored Church of God received the 2014 Medina County Business Award for Non-profit Community Investment from the Medina County Economic Development Corporation. The corporation oversees economic growth in Medina County in which the Church’s headquarters is located.
“This award honors a Medina County non-profit organization which made a capital investment of more than $250,000 during calendar year 2013 that has enhanced Medina County’s quality of life by expanding, building or renovating a structure in the county,” the corporation’s website stated.
The award was given at a ceremony held at the Blair Center in Westfield Center, Ohio. Those accepting the award included members of the Church’s public communications team: Mr. Gregory Kaidannek, Mr. Edward Winkfield, and Dr. James Pastor.
Many were surprised by the investment that the Church has made to its home city of Wadsworth, which is in Medina County, and the economic benefits it has provided to the surrounding area. Its well-manicured campus, stately buildings, agriculture program, and sustained growth model throughout the years have substantially contributed to the development of the region.
The Church is honored to give back to Medina County, which for the past 20 years has been the county with the most rapid growth in Northern Ohio. Both it and the city of Wadsworth have been a great help in realizing the plans for The Restored Church of God’s World Headquarters Campus.
With its Headquarters in Wadsworth, Ohio, The Restored Church of God announces the unknown, but ultimate message of hope to all nations. The Church, which has congregations in over 60 countries spanning six continents, freely distributes many millions of books, booklets and articles across the globe annually—many of which are available in 11 languages—and has the world’s most extensive biblically based websites: rcg.org, realtruth.org and worldtocome.org.
