The W.O.R.D. Center -- NOW OPEN!


Amazing Facts staff moved into the ministry’s new world headquarters on August 28, kickstarting a new phase in worldwide evangelism!

The W.O.R.D. Center -- NOW OPEN! image onePhase 1. After more than a decade of prayer, planning, and construction, Phase 1 of the Amazing Facts W.O.R.D. Center—World Outreach, Revival, and Discipleship— in Granite Bay, California, is now open for ministry!
Pastor Doug Batchelor, president of Amazing Facts International and senior pastor of Granite Bay Church, says, “We are grateful to God and to our many friends for this opportunity to expand our outreach to a world in such spiritual upheaval. I believe that because of our commitment to His Word and mission in these last days, the Lord has blessed us with growth and influence.”

The W.O.R.D. Center -- NOW OPEN! image oneA Prime Location The new facilities sit on 75 acres on a hill with stunning views of nature. The land was purchased in 2008 at an extremely favorable—even providential— price. During the following years, Amazing Facts experienced phenomenal growth, creating a pressing need for larger, updated facilities. Shares Pastor Doug, “After years of maxing out our old office, with virtually every inch jammed, we now have the space to accomplish our work and grow for future evangelism.”

Center -- NOW OPEN! image twoAn Updated Office Having a new, larger, and technology-updated office building for the ministry means workers won’t be on top of each other, as they have been, leading to more efficient and effective workflows. It also means that media production won’t be squeezed into cramped spaces decorated to look larger; rather, there will be dedicated areas for both on-camera sets and behind-the-scenes production work. Work areas in the new facilities are specially designed to meet these production needs.

The Sky is the Limit!

According to Wayne Leman, creative productions director for the ministry, “We always had limitations in our productions because of the shortcomings of our previous facility. However, with this new building, the only limitations will be our imaginations. We know that with God, all things are possible, so the sky is the limit!”

In short, Wayne says, “The W.O.R.D. Center will be a place where we can create an environment that allows evangelism and media to live harmoniously! It will be a place where less goes further, and where our efforts go further than we’ve ever been able to take evangelism before.”

Pastor Doug explains, “Here, we have expanded facilities for TV and radio production, along with space for AFCOE’s outreach training. And when completed in the next several months, the Granite Bay Church building will not only support the congregation, but it will also provide facilities to produce and record a wide range of church-based programs that will minister to millions worldwide.”

Sabbath School Study Hour and other church-based worship programs will also go out to viewers around the world via AFTV, Facebook, and YouTube streams, along with our family of cable and satellite networks.

I want everyone who gave to and prayed for this project to know that we will use this place to forward God’s mission on earth.” The entire ministry team is so grateful for your support and participation in the completion of the W.O.R.D. Center. We look forward to seeing you here on a visit!
