Update on Land Purchase

Filed under: Uncategorized — Thomas Odom @ 9:23 pm

To All:

For some time now, the Ocoee COG has had a desire to purchase a piece of property adjacent to its current location.

About 15 months ago, the asking price was $210K.

At that time, the church offered $187K, however, no deal was ever reached!

Well – how time changes things!

About 2 months ago, I received a call from the investment group that now owns the property.

The person on the line began to share details regarding the property with me.

I advised him that I was very aware of the property and the details.

The person I was speaking with was named Paul.

Paul said “Pastor, I want to sell you that land.”

To make a long story short, we now have a signed contract on the property!

The contract price is $86K, down by $124K from 15 months ago! Praise The Lord!!!

In addition, the owner is willing to owner finance the land at 5% interest!

During a Called Church Conference on Sunday, January 4, there was a 93% vote to move forward with the purchase.

Today, I submitted the needed paperwork to the COG State Executive Offices in order to obtain their approval.

My Regional Bishop, Chris Dutruch, has been very supportive of this plan and I appreciate his encouragement!

If all goes well, we are hoping to close on the land before the end of the month!

Please continue to pray that God’s will is done!

Pastor Thomas
