Construction of a two-story retreat centre commenced in April at Grace & Light’s headquarters in Jos.
On 24 April staff members and builders held a breaking ground ceremony with Christian leadership consultant Kate Register digging the first hole. A time of prayer then launched the new building work. So far, the foundations have been dug and the floor slab laid.
This work has been funded by donations from the grant making trust Golden Stable and a private supporter. Construction of the ground floor will begin once we have further funding for this work.
“We are building the retreat centre stage by stage as we receive funding”, said international coordinator Tassie Ghata. “We hope to complete the building by the end of 2019. We will then be able to use it for the many training programmes we run in Jos as well as earning income by hiring the building out to other faith organisations for conferences.”
When it is completed the building with have 28 en-suite twin bedrooms with study areas, a large meeting hall, lounge and dining area, as well as car parking and relaxing grounds.
