In response to the ‘Decade of Evangelisation,’ (1990 – 2000) declared by St. Pope John Paul II, the NST, during CCR National Congress in 1995 at Christ the King Cathedral in Sunyani, launched its vision to build a Formation & Service Centre to train leaders & disciples for renewal & evangelisation.

Subsequently, Mr. Poku Awuah (an Architect) and Mr. Ofori Sarpong (a Structural Engineer), both members of the CCR, who freely offered their professional services, were engaged by the NST to design and see to the building project. They were also tasked to ensure that the Upper Room concept, as in the Acts of the Apostles, has a bearing on the design. 

To kick start the project, Msgr. Michael Kosak from the Caribbean Islands, who was also a guest speaker at the Congress in Sunyani, donated 1,000.00 USD as seed money, and the foundation stone was laid on 1st November, 1995.

All other initial funding was provided by contributions from the prayer groups and local friends and partners who share in the ministry of the Centre. Upon realizing the huge financial resource needed to complete the project, and the limited local resources, the building was termed to be a “Faith Project,” and was then committed to ceaseless prayer and God’s providence. Thus, we responded to Christ’s invitation to a devoted trust in the providence of our heavenly Father (cf. Mt 6:26-34), and St. Peter the Apostle’s counsel that we “Cast all [our] anxieties on him, for He cares about [us]” (1Peter 5:7; cf. Psalm 55:23).
