The Assemblies of God’s proposed multi-million-dollar projects in Fiji are currently on hold.

This was confirmed by the Central Division presbyter Reverend Jale Tora yesterday.

According to a 2015 report in the Fiji Sun, the church had proposed two major investments in the hope that they will benefit church members.

The then general secretary Reverend Viliame Vakasausau said that one of the investments would be the construction of a 10-story luxury apartment and hotel with an investment of $20 million.

This was earmarked for Robertson Road in Suva where the Church’s head office is located. The other proposed project was the development of an AOG City in Koronovia, Nausori.

Yesterday at the divisional conference in Suva, Reverend Tora said, they needed to get themselves together before they could take care of the project.

Meanwhile, similar divisional conferences are also being held in Lautoka and Labasa.

In Lautoka, Divisional  Superintendent West  Pastor  Filikesa Koroivueta said the weeklong conference would be spent developing strategies for the church’s way forward.

“For the western division we have almost 149 churches spread all over the western division but the overall AOG church has been in existence for 92 years and we are planning on a big centennial celebration in the year 2026,” he said.

In Labasa, AOG Northern Division’s representative Akuila Qalomaiwasa said modern technology and social media had equipped the church in spreading the word, but at the same time it posed challenges.

“This year’s theme is Return, Renew and Revive. What it means is that we are going back and revisiting the original passion and commitment we should be having towards God and the Church,” he said.

“This way we can see where we have lacked and move on from there.

“This will also help us combat the new challenges that have been brought about by evolving technology and social media.”
