Pushing New frontier for AOG Fiji

 

The Assemblies of God Fiji has embarked on a new venture in partnership with EST Fiji (Engineering Synthesis Technology).

Early next year the church will begin work on a $30m luxury apartment and head office complex in Anand Street, Suva – the same location of the current AOG head quarters.

The 13-14 storey building is expected to meet the growing demand for quality accommodation and conference venues in the heart of Suva.

 

Phase 1

AOG General Secretary, Reverend Viliame Vakasausau said the ground breaking ceremony yesterday marked the end of phase 1 of the project.

This included the $300,000 contribution by church members.

Reverend Vakasausau said this contribution prepared them for the next phase of seeking financial assistance.

“Since we erected a billboard for our Koronivia project in 2013, we’ve had a number of interests from institutions like the Fiji National Provident Fund and a Chinese company.

“As we work towards our second level that will give a direction as to which institution we will engage,” he said.

Construction proper will begin in the third phase of the project.

 

Loan Repayment

In regards to financing the loan, Reverend Vakasausau said: “The involvement of church members was only as we move into the first level.

“Our goal is that the apartment will take care of itself.”

Plans are in place to complete the project in two years with the apartments for rent at $3,000 a month.

 

Old and New

Deputy General Superintendent, Reverend Mosese Cakau said the desire and the dream to build this facility was both old and new.

“It is old in the fact in its vision, its concept and its intent to build this structure in this place is not new. I have a picture that was given to me by Reverend Peni Naituku .

“It’s new in its intent, design and its features – and in the dream God had to bring to pass in this leadership under the current Superintendent, Reverend Pita Cili – God had to put in place the right characters and the right people,” he said.

The $30m project is only a stepping stone to much bigger projects envisioned for AOG Fiji at Koronivia and Bible College in Wainadoi.
