Nauru church members, with the help of the Adventist world Church, are building the first Seventh-day Adventist church building on the island.
With a membership of 32, Nauru church is under the care of the Trans-Pacific Union Mission (TPUM).
TPUM ministerial secretary, Dr Ronald Stone, is overseeing the project, which will also include the construction of a pastor’s house.

After almost 10 years, church members are excited about the construction. Former members and neighbours have indicated their interest in committing to the church.
Dr Stone has also met with several key people in Nauru’s government about plans to start a primary school. There is enough space to build classrooms on the current church land.
Church members have also been actively involved in visiting asylum seekers at the processing centre on Nauru.
