International Church of Monrovia (ICM) – Building Project

Seeing the rising growth in membership and congregation of the church, the leadership of ICM, in consultation with the leadership of ECOL (Evangelical Church of Liberia), requested from SIM Liberia a strip of land (just behind the old edifice) that would enable her to build a more spacious edifice. This request was later granted after careful scrutiny of the request by the SIM Liberia board of directors via her executive director William H. E. Elphick.

The leadership then established a committee to spearhead the construction of a new edifice that should host a congregation of about 250 persons with offices, music library, and etc. The six men committee which was chaired by Elder John Kpowee, commenced work on May 18, 2014.
