Tennessee WMU is pleased to move ahead with the construction phase of the Missionary House. The Executive Board of the Tennessee Baptist Convention approved a recommendation March 20 authorizing WMU to break ground. The ground breaking ceremony will take place Saturday, April 6 at 1 PM on the site where the house will be built on John Hager Road in Mt. Juliet. Kenny Johnson of West Hills Baptist Church has volunteered to serve as the general contractor. Other in-kind donations that have been committed include framing, plumbing, tile work, roofing, and miscellaneous labor. Please complete an in-kind commitment form to donate labor, construction materials or funds for furnishings. All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older and complete a volunteer form before working on the house.
The Missionary House Task Force wants to thank everyone for contributing cash and in-kind gifts that put us OVER THE TOP of the $300,000 goal. Funds are still needed to furnish the house and to establish the endowment fund for the future maintenance of the house. Individual and groups are encouraged to volunteer time to build the house. Any volunteer labor will save funds which can go toward furnishings and the endowment. To volunteer, please call the TN WMU office 800-558-2090 extension 2038. Watch this website for dates that volunteers will be needed with various skills.
“For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.” Hebrews 3:4
