Lake Union Committee Votes to Proceed with Construction of New Headquarters

On Oct. 10, at its regularly scheduled October meeting, the Lake Union Conference Executive Committee voted to proceed with construction of a new headquarters building on recently purchased property at the west corner of M-139 and Redbud Trail in Berrien Springs, Mich.

The need for a new building was precipitated by Andrews University's exploration to lease part of the office complex and the subsequent agreement to purchase the current LUC headquarters, which includes several buildings at the corner of M-139 and College Avenue in Berrien Springs. The purchase of these buildings allows expansion of the University campus and provides a place to locate the newly acquired Griggs University & International Academy, a distance learning and homeschool curriculum provider.

"As we plan our new office, taking advantage of efficiencies of size and modern construction, we will continue to enjoy the blessings of our long-term relationship and appreciation of Southwest Michigan and the Berrien Springs area," stated Don Livesay, president of the Lake Union Conference.

Floyd Brock, assistant to the president for special projects, is the construction manager for the new headquarters. Currently, the LUC is processing bids from general contractors for the project.

The Lake Union Conference Headquarters is one of nine regional offices throughout North America for the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Its administration and staff provide support and services for the Seventh-day Adventist churches and schools in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.
