In October 2016, we learned that the King Hall Hotel would be closing and that we would need to relocate. Since then we have prayed about the direction the Lord is taking our fellowships and what our space needs for the present and future might be. We have looked at over 55 locations and pursued several.
We are thankful during this time, the King Hall Hotel, which is actually closed, has continued to allow us to meet in their facilities.
We are also thankful during the time, we have used this time well. 1) We have sought the Lord's direction for our church and ministry and have a good idea what our facility should have in it. 2) We have secured the services of an excellent design and build firm 3) We have had time to raise funds for the remodeling and move.
We are ready to move.
Between now and April 29, 2018, TOCCF and TICF-Tianjin will be meeting at the Century Hotel. TICF-TEDA will continue to meet at the TEDA International Hotel.

At this time, as we work with local authorities, we are seeking the Lord show us the location He has chosen for us. For various reasons, several sites we pursued did not receive governmental approval or a finalized lease contract.
We are not discouraged. We remain faithful as a church with the Jesus as the head. We are looking forward to moving to the stages of design and construction and then worshipping in our new location.
Pray 1) we discern the location the Lord wants 2) we receive necessary approvals 3) we receive fair contract terms 4) for those who are involved in the day to day details of our move 5) for resources, financial and otherwise, needed for the relocation.
Thank you for your prayer support. May God receive all of glory throughout this process.
