National Headquarters for Triumph the Church and Kingdom of God in Christ


Planning Committee Building Fund


We Have Heard That Before


Triumph Wants a National Headquarters


Triumph Needs a National Headquarters


Will we build it in the North, South, East or West?


Where are the plans we paid for in 19__?


We raised money for that several years back.  Where is that money?


Who will hold the money this time?



 We can speculate for several more years and still not have a National Headquarters, based on what was done, what wasn’t done, who did it, and why.

 Looking forward, the Planning Committee in conjunction with the General Board of Trustee (Brother Thomas W. Moore, Chairman) solicits your input,

 ideals, and yes MONEY in actively moving forward with a National Headquarters for our Church.  We clearly do not want our great grandchildren to learn

 that we were busy pointing fingers, identifying problems, and engaging in the blame game to start afresh with efforts to “build” a National Headquarters. 

 That said, every Church, Sanctuary, and Temple has an opportunity to make this dream come true.  The Planning Committee would like to take a recommendation forward to the Chief Apostle and Board of District Apostles that is inclusive, represents the whole Church, and is a solid plan for fundraising and building.


As you prepare for other initiatives to move the Church forward, please include this very important item on your agenda over the next 30 days.  We encourage

you to make a copy of this notice, pass it on to every single member of your congregation, and place it on your local websites as well.  Most importantly, send your ideals/suggestions to Dr. Ora C. Rawls ( or any member of the planning committee as soon as possible.  All submissions will be given full consideration.  We anticipate having a substantive plan ready for review at the next National Meeting.
