Agape Kure Beach Ministries Workshop

Woodlands Center

Workshop – For NCAEE

March 5, 2010

Mission Statement:

Agapé V Kure Beach Ministries calls and gathers all people to experience the Spirit through unique,

small-group encounters with Christ, in Creation, and Community.

Board Policy:

                All current and future construction at either site will be sensitive to our call to stewardship of the earth.  New construction will carefully evaluate innovative “green construction” methods to meet the needs of the people these facilities will serve.  Consideration will be given to LEED standards for construction and how new construction can be seen as a teaching tool in fulfilling God’s command to care for the Creation (Genesis 2:15).
