New Media Center

NOTICE: This is the ELEVENTH in a series of special announcements. They collectively unveil the massive, ongoing expansion that God’s Church, Work and Headquarters are experiencing. There is a reason for this expansion! The reader should contrast these announcements to the increasing bad news and bad events in UCG, LCG, PCG, COGwa and ALL splinters and slivers of the Worldwide Church of God. You must see what they are NOT announcing, and why they never will—and what GOD is bringing upon them. The place to start reading is either the fifth announcement—“God’s People Back Together—SOON!”—or the first one to catch up on all you have missed. If you begin with the fifth announcement, then read those before and after it. They are all important. An enormous and detailed prophecy is now being carried out by God. He is preparing events to soon bring His people back together—all of them. It is not my task to convince you the prophecy is true. God will do that! My job is to systematically lay out the specifics of what will happen and WHY—good and bad, pleasant and unpleasant. YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS A SINGLE ANNOUNCEMENT! If you do, CATCH UP. Also, you will miss the full impact if you skip sections of these announcements.
Restored Church of God Pastor General David C. Pack writes,

"Be sure to read all of this week’s announcement. Something important appears at the end.

"The World to Come™ broadcast will soon be among the most watched religious programs in the world. Eventually it will be number one! To keep pace with its continuing rapid expansion, we are pleased to introduce the construction of a third building to be added to our Headquarters Campus—a Media Center. (It joins the almost completed Hall of Administration and the recently announced Mail Processing Center.) With The World to Come now reaching millions across the world, this tremendous media growth is causing us to outgrow our current television studio. More space, equipment and manpower is required. (For those who missed past announcements detailing our dramatic television expansion, be sure to read them.)

"This over 4,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility will house three studios of different size, as well as our growing Media Production Services Department (MPS). These vitally important studios will contain various beautiful set designs, coupled with the very latest technology. More workspace will also be available for our media team to assemble the professional graphics, news footage, powerful statistics, music and other elements that make up The World to Come program. Besides regular broadcasts, MPS also produces extensive annual 'Behind the Work' films, along with the Church’s many other video and audio productions.

"The Media Center will include a much expanded main recording studio—double the size of our current one. It will also have a cutting edge video editing suite, a photography studio, conference space, video machine room and expanded workspace for the graphic designers and video editors, both current and future. The building will be treated with state-of-the-art soundproofing, which creates the best possible recording conditions.

"In an image-driven 'video' world, a separate media building becomes a necessity. The constantly evolving television and Internet landscape of today’s media environment mean we must be ready to adjust accordingly, and sometimes quickly. The future will make clear in what ways television and video production will be further used within the final Work of God, but the Media Center puts us in a position to suddenly shift as the industry does.

"Preliminary planning, architectural work and engineering work have already taken place. So has some site preparation. We hope to begin construction within the next couple months. The building will reflect the blended quality and craftsmanship of the original Worldwide Church of God Pasadena campus. Preliminary renderings of the Media Center are shown below from three angles:

"On a related note, the Hall of Administration completion is 'on track' for our May 10 move, just two weeks away. We expect to have 95 employees and all offices fully up and running by opening time on May 14 (with one day off because it’s the Sabbath). It is times like this when we are especially thankful to have the wonderful, harmonious Government of God in place within His one Church. It is the greatest reason by far that this giant endeavor can be done so smoothly, efficiently and rapidly, with God’s Work scarcely missing a beat. (Those interested may also view the regular brief slideshow update containing recent photos of the Hall of Administration.)

"I thought it would also be inspiring for the reader to view a series of renderings of the entire 'business' portion of the Headquarters Campus as it will eventually look. (Realize that almost none of the extraordinarily beautiful trees, bushes, flowers, water features and landscaping are yet shown.) A number of perspectives give the sense of how much the central part of the overall campus has been designed to resemble the Ambassador Campus in Pasadena. It is our hope that three of the five buildings will be in place and complete soon after the Feast of Tabernacles this year:

"Next Friday I will start bringing the scriptural details of the prophecy revealing that all of God’s people will soon be back together. In time this will include exactly HOW and WHEN this will occur. The first elements of this 'explaining' process will take three or four Friday announcements.

"Consider this. Enough time has passed that an irony is developing regarding this prophecy. Having read the announcements, a great many people, apparently throughout the splinters, are growing in excitement about the “idea” of soon being back together in one organization. This much is good, and wonderful to hear. Strangely, some or maybe many of these people are at the same time known to resent me because I have said that their organization will disappear. Think just at the most basic level. Assume for a moment that what I am announcing is true—and it IS TRUE! So obviously, for God’s people to be together, ALL organizations but ONE must 'go away,' meaning everyone must leave them to enter that ONE organization—the ONE Church that Christ built. Continue thinking at the most basic level. EVERY splinter leader would support this, but of course only if HE led that one organization.

"The question is not what I or any other leader thinks about who will lead God’s Church, but rather what GOD thinks—whom HE has decided is its leader. Think further. No leader, including ME, would ever have any 'voice' in this. There is one great clue, however, that can be offered for brethren who believe we will one day be together and who are thinking even a little below the surface about HOW this would be. This includes the obvious steps that must precede the coming together. First, God has to REVEAL that this coming together will happen—and that HE is going to bring it about. And He must use SOMEONE to announce it. Whom do you think GOD would use to make clear His plan? The answer is obvious: whoever is His CHOSEN LEADER. THIS becomes really the only major point necessary at this time to comprehend the way God would reveal His SUPREME PURPOSE for His Church. Think still further. Would He reveal His plans through a particular man in one organization, and then turn and put all of His people under another man in another organization? OF COURSE NOT. That would make God the author of confusion. Think a final time. Why do no other leaders understand ANY of the awesome and incredibly detailed prophecy that I am about to present—the what, when, where and how this reunification will occur?

"Lastly, expect the top leaders of at least the bigger organizations (including YOURS) to resent and attack, mock and deride, what they were not shown—and to be angry that I am declaring that they (the top men) will soon be OUT OF BUSINESS and REMOVED FROM POWER—EVERY ONE OF THEM! Repentant ministers and many faithful splinter employees will carry on, serving solely in God’s Church. (A growing number are already contacting us.) All declarations of “support” for and “loyalty” to the top leaders coming from ministers and members in the wake of these announcements will be meaningless, of absolutely no value. This is because they cannot stop what GOD is doing, and will do! By now, you should at least want to know what will be explained. The announcements of coming weeks and months will shock you beyond imagination!

"Make no mistake. The last three paragraphs are TRUE! Read them again, this time more carefully.

"Check this page EVERY Friday. Do not miss even ONE ANNOUNCEMENT! They are about to grow serious, before growing much more serious…"
