APNTS and Partners Dedicate New Life Mission Center

Jul 5, 2011

On June 17th, APNTS President Dr. Floyd T. Cunningham joined with Korean Partners from SangAmDong Church of the Nazarene and Onnuri Methodist Church to dedicate the New Life Mission Center (NLMC) on the Campus of Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary. Joining the Korean pastors were members from their respective churches as well as friends, faculty, students and staff of APNTS.

The dedication came just a few weeks prior to the actual completion of the building project, but provided a meaningful time for donors and partners to tour the soon-to-be-open facility into which they had put their generous support.  The special ceremony was planned to coincide with the presence of Dr. Shin Min-Gyoo and Dr. Jeong Myeong Muk at APNTS, who had been teaching for the school’s summer module courses.

The ceremony included hymns and liturgy of dedication, special music from APNTS students and a special dedication message from Dr. Jeong of Onnuri Methodist Church.  Following the symbolic presentation of the facility’s keys to the President by APNTS Architech Eric Sanchez, an official ribbon cutting was held in front on the New building.  APNTS Professor Dr. Kwon Dong Hwan then lead APNTS partners on a guided tour of the newly built facilities.

The initial purpose of the NLMC was to provide housing for Work-and-Witness teams and Missionaries coming for ministry to APNTS and the Philippine.   While this purpose will certainly be realized, this facility will also provide housing for other groups coming to APNTS for short-term courses, seminars, workshops in missions, English and the new Holistic Child Development program.  This facility will quickly grow in usefulness as the Seminary develops other facilities, including the Cobb Worship Center and the Horizon Room in the Nielson Center for Evangelism and Education (NCEE), which is adjacent to the NLMC.

The first floor of newly-built structure features hotel-like accommodations with full amenities and services.  The second level provides dormitory accommodations, which will be ideal for groups visiting the campus, while the third floor will include two apartments for visiting faculty members, a kitchen, and both indoor and outdoor dining spaces.

The new facility will provide a great resource for ministry to APNTS and its surrounding area.  The school extends its deepest gratitude to the SangAmDong and Onnuri churches for their generous support and continued partnership.
