NASHVILLE — LifeWay Christian Resources dedicated its new corporate headquarters Nov. 27 with a ribbon-cutting, a prayer of thanksgiving and a pledge to remain faithful to God’s Word.
Speaking to a crowd of employees, executive leadership team members and special guests, LifeWay President and CEO Thom S. Rainer recounted the changes taking place within the organization, from new physical spaces to new digital technologies, but declared a commitment to “remain faithful to Him who has called us” and “continue to provide resources that will point people to God’s Word and to Christ.”
Joined by other LifeWay leaders, Rainer wielded giant scissors to cut an oversized red ribbon in front of the new 277,000-square-foot facility, which includes a retail store to serve downtown Nashville.
“We dedicate this building to God,” Rainer said, “for His glory and for His gospel.”
The event capped a month of activities celebrating LifeWay’s move to Capitol View from its former location about a half-mile away. LifeWay, known as the Sunday School Board at its founding in 1891, sold the previous property to developers in late 2015 and broke ground on the new facility in April 2016. (BP)
