UCG HQ has a letter out to the ministry of the Church. They are preparing for their upcoming conference where it will be one big happy back slapping fun fest. "Everything is is glorious in the church and we are one big happy family on the verge of bringing in thousands of new members.
After suffering a horrendous exodus of members to Church of God a Worldwide Association and a dramatic drop in income UCG is proposing building new recording studios and other facilities:
Amongst other things, we will be discussing plans for the expansion of the home office to enable the building of a new recording and production studio to increase our broadcasting effectiveness. Also, attention will be given to the annual international reports submitted from every region of the world. These will be particularly interesting this year as we hear of the progress that has been made in different areas following the challenges we faced a year ago.
UCG still has no major impact in the world and is has not drawn in a measurable number of non-COG related members. UCG, like most of the other COG is made up of church hopping COG members who look for a current COG that fits their fancy as they jump from church to church trying to find a home.
UCG like it's mother church the WCG has always been adept at using numbers to their advantage. WCG always boasted about how many read the Plain Truth - over 8,000,000 at one item. But ask them how many of that eight million actually became members and you could probably count them on two hand. The PT and WCG's myriads of booklets never brought in huge numbers of "new" members.
So you have to question UCG's current vision of wasting millions of dollars more in members tithe money for another production studio. Of course there will a few who will willingly deprive themselves in order to send in money to finance this new adventure.
UCG dumped millions of dollars in tithe money for a useless piece of land in Texas that is still sitting empty to this day. There must still be some delusional men sitting at UCG HQ who think the glory days for UCG is yet to come.
