CBRE For Sale Sign at 4000 West 11th Avenue

At our Annual General Meeting on October 1, 2018, the PCDA has decided to sell the Menno Simons Centre (MSC) by the middle of next year in order to pay off our debt on the Bernice Gerard Ministry House (a.k.a. the G House). If you know of an organization that may be interested in purchasing the MSC, they can contact our real estate agent at CBRE about our listing of 4000 West 11th Avenue for sale.

We purchased 2026 Wesbrook Mall earlier this year to use as the new site of a “Menno House” (a.k.a. Menno Hall) student residence which we plan to start building in the University Endowment Lands (UEL) at the gateway of UBC near the corner of University Boulevard once we get the necessary permits in the next couple of years.

We would be most grateful if you would support our ministry project with your prayers and contributions.
