Dr. David M. Griffis and Dr. M. Thomas Propes, Church of God World Missions leadership team, are pleased to announce that a beautiful new property has been acquired by Church of God World Missions for the future new home of the Asian Seminary for Christian Ministries (ASCM). “ The property, which is five times larger than ASCM’s previous setting, is ideal for the school’s long-term prospects to train and serve students from Asia Pacific and beyond,” states Dr. Griffis.
“As Asia Pacific’s flagship higher education institution, we wanted ASCM to have space to grow with new improved facilities. This new property will afford these opportunities to ASCM,” added Field Director Andrew Binda.
Located thirty miles south of Manila in Silang, Cavite, a quickly developing suburb, the 4,589 sq. meters site is situated with 273 feet of road frontage near Aguinaldo highway and the soon to be built CALAX expressway interchange. At almost one thousand feet above sea level, the breezy climate of Silang will also provide a welcome clean and cool environment for students and staff alike.
“We consider this land as His gift for ministry in Asia Pacific. The process to find and purchase this property has truly been guided by the Lord,“ says Austral Asia Superintendent, Dr. Marc Morris, who is concurrently serves as Chairman and Interim President. “The ASCM family is excited how this property will position the school to have excellent facilities for the next generation. In partnership with our international colleagues in higher education, we look forward to ASCM being an institution that is meeting the training needs in Asia Pacific and the international church.”
Scheduled to transfer to the new campus in 2020, the processes of reviewing and selecting the architectural perspective and contractor for the initial phase of development are nearing completion.
