The University of the Southern Caribbean’s (USC) Church and Mission Centre will soon become a reality as a date for the construction project has been announced, alongside a proposed date for completion. This announcement comes one month after a portion of the world church’s Sabbath mission offering was dedicated to the construction of the USC church.
For decades, it has been a dream of the University to erect a building suitable for worship to God. Now, thanks to the support of church members and other generous donors, the building will commence on August 27, 2018.
Dr Hilary Bowman, University President, has announced that a ground breaking ceremony will be held on July 2, 2018, one day after the scheduled graduation exercises.
Pastor Terry John, Senior Pastor of the Caring University Church, and Vice-President for Spiritual Development at USC said that the church will feature specialised children’s Sabbath School classes, children’s ministries facilities, rooms for the choir, diaconate and baptistry, among other facilities.
He also indicated that the Mission centre will include a training room, computer room,community empowerment centre and a counselling office. USC is a 90 year-old institution of higher learning which continually focuses on developing a solid spiritual ethos on its campuses across the region.
