Our Mission and Ministry Resource Center
The Mission and Ministry Resource Center is located just off Highway 515 in Blue Ridge, Georgia. The Center provides office space for the missionary, associate missionary and for the ministry assistant, Mrs. Angie Whitener, and a workroom that also serves as an office for our counselor Dr. DeAnna Brown. One of the rooms has been converted into a dental clinic with all the necessary equipment to provide dental care. There is a library of resource materials, and two classrooms for offering training in all areas of ministry and technology. Many people visit the Mission Center each week. The center is used for two counseling ministries, free food distribution, free medical clinic, and free dental clinics. It is home to the SAM's committee (senior adult ministry), a monthly breakfast for pastors, and a host of other meetings which occur occasionally.
