Moving To Expand God’s Mission

Gods Next Stepping Stone

by Mike Cauley, Florida Conference President

We are amazed how God is leading us through our office relocation.

It started when Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) approached us with plans to use our back parking lot in their Interstate 4 expansion project.

The plan included a 20-foot sound wall to be built just a few feet from the west side of the building. This would not only have removed the visibility of the Conference from the Interstate but also eliminate nearly half of the building’s parking spaces. There would no longer be adequate parking for the Conference office and the Adventist Book Center.

We earnestly prayed about this challenge. However, by God’s grace, FDOT eventually offered to instead purchase the entire building. This enabled us to go forward with finding another facility and a better way to accomplish God’s mission.

After months of prayerful searching, God led us to a prime location. He worked everything out so we could purchase the existing building, including changing the developer’s original plans for the property. This new location will allow the Adventist Book Center to grow, to better serve the surrounding community, and to reach out with our health message. The building also has enough space so that we will no longer be required to rent off-site storage.

Our new home is well on its way to completion, and we look forward to all that God has in store for us. We trust God will lead us as we go forward to accomplish His will in Florida Conference.
