Our newest building is 115 N. Wayne Ave. We closed on it's purchase in July of this year. Prior to the closing we had the roof inspected by two different individuals with the reports indicating that we had about 5 years left on the current roof. Throughout the summer to today we have been in the building during all kinds of weather. No leaks. Until Monday, 10/19/2020 after a significant rain storm. We've discovered leaks around the walls inside of the building. The roof must be replaced due to the numbers of leaks and that they cannot be patched.
The cost for the roof replacement is $18,000.00. Click the button below to help "Replace the Roof" by donating online. No amount is too small!
You can also mail a check to Metanoia Center, Business Office, 316 Home Ave., Lockland, OH, 45215
Above is a short slideshow of some of the roof leakage throughout the building.
Metanoia is a Greek word whose definition is "afterthought", from meta meaning "after" or "beyond" and nous meaning "mind or thought". In Classical Greek metanoia meant changing one's mind about someone or something. Biblically, metanoia is used to refer to the change of mind/heart which is brought about in repentance. Another word used in conjunction with the definition of metanoia is transformation. Thus metanoia is the changing, transformation, of ones mind, or heart, that results in a change, or transformation, of lifestyle. You might say that a transformation of lifestyle is evidence of a transformed mind and heart. It is our conviction that true, lasting metanoia occurs through Biblical re-birth that results in the restoration of relationship with God, the Creator, that then leads to restoration of relationship with others, creation and self: a wholistic change that results in the transformation of people and place.
