This week we had our first missions meeting with Ten Talents International. They meet in a stunningly beautiful building with the finest offices, coffee bar, conference rooms, and amenities. Mike went on to tell me that the building provides a top notch quality workout room, refrigerators stocked with food, all of the utilities, high tech plasmas and office equipement, and to top it off…it’s all free for Christian non-profits. Of course I asked for the story and I was stunned at the generosity of a local businessman. Here’s the scoop for the US Digital website:
In 2006, this building was purchased and renovated to become the new home of US Digital, the maker of motion control products. For one year, an extra 17,000 square foot section of the 110,000 square foot building sat empty waiting for a useful purpose.
US Digital was inspired by a simple question in the Bible, “What is that in your hand?” (Exodus 4:2). The simple staff in Moses’ hand became the instrument that God used to part the Red Sea. What was in our hand? We had extra office space and a heart for God to use it as a blessing. That inspiration, coupled with God’s providence and hard work created a blessing that we trust reflects God’s heart for this community.
The idea was simple: Develop that space and provide the infrastructure for a variety of small Christ centered ministries that complement each other. We provide their home and allow them the freedom to operate independently to fulfill their purposes.
God prospers and blesses our business as we seek to honor Him and follow our owner’s manual, the Bible. We hope that the good ship US Digital will inspire other businesses to partner with Christ and be His providence to their communities.
This is our story. What is in your hand?
WAY TO GO, US Digital! As a church plant that sought long and hard for our current building and is now looking for additional space for a second campus, I am inspired by your heart for ministry. I often look at unused space with a sick feeling in my stomach, knowing how valuable SPACE is for the kingdom of God. Thank you for opening your hand to see the work of God extend into a community that we love deeply. You are our heroes!
