On Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019, by the grace of God, OA USA & Canada completed the closing and received the title for its new headquarters in St. Louis.
The building is like a ‘magnificent citadel’ which has the spiritual heritage that can become the fortress of mission and stronghold of USA & Canada mission. The building has the exquisite chapel with the grand pipe organ, classrooms, dining room, commercial kitchen, and dozens of rooms for office and dormitory with the immense size of 88,000 square foot.
The center will function as the head, and from there leaders will be gather to serve ministries and be trained towards mission expansion across United States, and furthermore, expansion of world mission. The building has the shape of letter “P” when looking from the sky. “P” has the indication and symbol of Peter and Paul. Just as Apostle Peter and Apostle Paul, who followed the life of Jesus Christ and opened the history of mission, God will also bring about a revival through the new headquarters.
The location can situate easily hundreds of staff and interns who will be instrumental in the expansion of the national mission. US is the leader of education in a multitude of vocations and fields, and a melting pot of all ethnicities from around the world. The preaching of the gospel to a new generation of believers from here has the potential invigorate mission to stretch into many different sectors across the world.
May God to be glory for this acquisition and start of a new revival through the new OA USA & Canada headquarters.
May your eyes be open toward this temple night and day, this place of which you said, ‘My Name shall be there,’ so that you will hear the prayer your servant prays toward this place. – 1 King 8:29
