Herbert is rolling over in his grave right now. Little would he have ever dreamed that a charismatic personality cult would have bought the Ambassador Auditorium where people would be barking like dogs, pogoing and rolling around on the floor in fits of ecstasy. I remember the fits of rage HWA went into when he found a crucifix on stage for an opera production. All hell broke loose. Imagine what he would think to find out a School for the Supernatural will be opened in the Hall of Administration! Oy!
Harvest Rock Church, who bought the Auditorium, has declared that they will be purchasing the Hall of Administration for their use. The Hall of Ad had been bought by a senior retirement community developer several years ago. Pre-sales of the million dollar retirement condos were swift. Then the economy tanked. The company backed out and Maranatha Schools leased the building out for film shoots and other rentals.
Harvest Rock posted this:
A kairos moment is again laid before us!
We have an opportunity to buy the administrative
building next to HRock in Pasadena for only cents on the dollar.For years, respected prophetic leaders have prophesied to us about an expansion of HRock Church and Harvest International Ministry on this campus, and the increased impact it would have for ministry here and abroad.This seemed beyond our reach until I received the recent news of an unprecedented price drop for this facility.As you may know, this site served as the former world headquarters for the Worldwide Church of God. They have been guarded in who is allowed to purchase property, and what was available for sale. God gave us favor when we miraculously obtained the remarkable auditorium where we meet for conferences and as a church.However, since we gained that facility in 2004, our tiny staff offices have remained on the other side of our city in an old building. We haven’t had the space for vital things we need, like a permanent 24/7 house of prayer, healing rooms, staff offices and of course, a home for HIM.
Our vision for the building is to establish a top-notch Christian preschool, elementary and junior high school, our international seminary, Wagner Leadership Institute, Arts and Entertainment Academy, and the new School of the Supernatural we are slated to begin in the Fall. The building is perfect for a food bank to feed the poor in our city. We also need Sunday school classrooms, ministry classrooms, meeting rooms, organizational facilities and offices for staff.
I believe this is the next step in your and my part to establish the Kingdom through the ministries of HRock and HIM. God reminded me of an unusual strategy to purchase this building: I am asking 9000 people to give $1,000 each so we can buy it outright. That would total $9 million dollars.
