It Is Written will host a grand opening of its new ministry headquarters in Collegedale, Tennessee, United States, on Friday, November 22, 2019, from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. The event will feature a dedication, a ribbon cutting, an open house, ministry tours, giveaways, and refreshments.
Speakers will include John Bradshaw, president of It Is Written, and representatives from the local community, Southern Adventist University, and the Southern Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. It Is Written representatives invited ministry supporters as well as anyone interested in learning more about It Is Written to attend.
For the first time in 63 years of ministry, It Is Written will have a building of its own. Previously headquartered in the Adventist Media Center in California, the ministry moved to Tennessee in 2014 and began leasing separate office and warehouse spaces in Chattanooga. After two years of construction, staff moved into the 41,000-square-foot building in September. The new headquarters employs more than 40 local residents and includes office, studio, and warehouse space under one roof. The space expands and improves the efficiency of studio capabilities and provides room for future growth.
“Another major advantage is the increased ministry effectiveness this move brings us,” Bradshaw said. “We can not only do more than ever for God, but we can also now be more efficient than ever.”
The grand opening will take place at 9340 Four Corners Place, Collegedale, Tennessee. The building site was originally slated for a hospital, but red tape curtailed those plans. After it was purchased and sold by several owners, the property will be a place where It Is Written offers hope and spiritual healing to people around the world, according to ministry leaders.
