World Renew Moves Office to Byron Center

Written by Paul R. Kopenkoskey on . Posted in Local

worldrenewWorld Renew, the Christian Reformed Church in North America's international relief and development organization, is moving from its current location in the denominational offices in Grand Rapids to Byron Center. World Renew Canada will remain in the CRCNA's Burlington, Ont. building.

A building has been purchased at 8970 Byron Commerce Dr. SW and is around 10 miles from the CRCNA offices. The idea for the purchase came into discussion after a 2019 recommendation was made by CRCNA U.S. Corporation, owners of the current denominational building, to remodel the existing offices and resize the property.

The timeline of World Renew's projected move was then significantly delayed by the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020, but the delay resulted in an outcome that is now adjusted to the current pandemic reality.

"This is a new building that is right-sized for World Renew post-pandemic and can be designed to flex with our needs in the next normal, the hybrid workspace," said World Renew U.S. Director Carol Bremer-Bennett. "It brings us together under one roof again to streamline and support the future growth of World Renew. We are excited to realize new ways for our volunteers to serve remote disaster sites from this new, unified home office."
