OGS Building Dedication


Recently, the ABCUSA Office of the General Secretary (OGS) dedicated it new office site now called the Robert A. Roblee Ministry Building.


As a part of the dedication, the member of the Board of General Ministries also shared a brief time of recognition in honor of Dr. Spitzer’s upcoming retirement, presenting him with a book of letters from colleagues in ministry.


Located about a mile from the former ABCUSA Mission Center, the site will serve as a comfortable and functional site for the ongoing mission efforts of our wider ABC Family. The new ministry building for OGS was funded through a gift of the Robert Roblee family, which had its success in the shoe business.


To honor Lee’s retirement, IM Executive Director Sharon Koh gave Dr. Spitzer a new pair of shoes as he heads into his retirement, referencing Romans 10:15 – “...How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”... It was a fun moment, for sure!
