Zion Assembly Church Of God To Celebrate Groundbreaking For Expansion

Monday, May 14, 2018

Zion Assembly Church of God will be celebrating a groundbreaking on Saturday at 11 a.m. for the expansion of its international offices and ministries center. The expansion will include facilities for the beginnings of an envisioned Bible college. The international ministries center is at 5512 Waterlevel Highway, (64 Ocoee East), Cleveland.

Presiding Bishop Wade H. Phillips noted recently in a public address, “We are excited for the future of Zion Assembly.

  We are on a prophetic schedule that cannot be turned aside: for it has been ordained by the Lord!  Zion Assembly is promised victory on top of victory if we remain faithful to our call and commit ourselves to stay the course”.

This building project represents over 10 years of planning. The facility will allow for much needed office space. The vision for the Bible college was explained by Bishop Phillips in his annual address in 2011, “Nothing short of developing a Bible college and seminary will enable us to offer the kind of thorough ongoing education needed to set our ministers apart and to equip them for the great end-times task of the church --- to ground and settle them in the spiritual and biblical mysteries of the Gospel and the Bible church, and to fully equip them for national and international leadership in the sophisticated and complex world of the twenty-first century.”

The new 10,000 square-foot facility will consist of a fellowship hall, academic library, media studio, classrooms, offices, and much-needed additional storage space. 

“This new facility will be instrumental in Zion Assembly meeting its goals to introduce sinners to Christ and Christians to the church of the Bible.  Our media ministries will be able to expand and have a greater impact online.  Our educational department will be able to launch both online and in-class programs in connection with the Bible college.  We envision training students in both full-time and part-time capacities,” said Anton Burnette, Education and Media Ministries director.

Speakers will include Bishop Wade H. Phillips, Bishop Anton Burnette and city and bank representatives.

Roy Exum: It’s So Sad For Me

I cannot remember a time in my life when I have been as saddened by such a travesty that has now erupted in the confirmation process that would place Brett Kavanaugh on our Supreme Court.
