Providing Christian formation courses for Methodist pastors, youth and education for children
Describe the need affecting community
How will this Advance project help to address the need?
Thiu rancho is the only retreat center owned and operated for the IEMB and has been serving this need since 1992.
Describe the primary goal of the project
When the Grayners left, Thiu Rancho Center continued to function very effectively under the direction of a National Pastor of the IEMB, however, funds for repair and maintenance began to dramatically decrease. An there is a need for extensive repairs and maintenance to bring the center back to where it was in 2012.
Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project
We hope that by improving center facilities we will improve the spiritual experience for the pastors, lay leaders, and the people that will have their retreats at the center. This will come to have people involved and help lead spiritual reformation of the IEMB.
