MY FAITH PROMISE BUILDING PROJECT is phase V of a Phase 5 project called the "Hilltop Project" {an extension project} that was established by the WVBSC under the leadership of the late Rev. Warren S. Lewis, executive secrectary. The "Hilltop Project" is specifically a proposal to develop a fifty acre site at hilltop, WV, as a christian education and conference center that will also accommodate small groups as they become aware of God through his self disclosure, in study, planning, worship, discussion, fellowship, work and play outdoors by the WVBSC. This baptist center will also house the central headquarters of the state convention. The planning committee was aware of the area limitations of the site, which were somewhat less than the standard requirements for a camp. This accounts partially for its decision to develop the fifty acre site as a center for christian education. the multi-purpose center is expected to accomodate small encampments and provide facilities for central headqauarters of the state convention also. The original plans of this V phase project had to be ammended over the years to accomodate the changing of the convention's dispsition. There were many ingredients that were put into action in order to maintain certain aspects of this building project.Overall we have met most of our objectives, but not all of them. While we are emcamping upon this 5th phase of this project, there are other areas in this project that needs to be taken care of. We hope you will see the total vision and embark upon this continued journey with us as we enter into this 5th phase. We need your help. We need your support, finacially and spiritually. Here are the different phases as laid out by the Planning Committee and adopted by the WVBSC.



Phase I

The addition will provide temporary offices for the location of central headquarters for the convention, conference rooms, and classrooms for Christian education. Accordion doors will be used so that all rooms will be multiple purpose units. Winterize all sleeping quarters and main buildings for year-round use. Creation of attractive entrance and entry signs. Improving existing pond and reforestation according to proposed study. Acquisition of strategic property adjacent to camp area. Housing for director-manager. This phase is completed.

This phase is complete.
