The old conference hall at the Bundum Retreat Center (BRC) is now being removed and a new conference Hall will be erected at the same exact site. The conference hall was first built about 25 years ago by Dr. Bergman who was the founder and the former manager of the BRC.

As recalled by many elders, for the last 25 years, this conference hall has contributed so much into the development of ELC-PNG. There were review workshop, course/skills training, bible studies, conferences, meetings, and retreats from all the seven departments of ELC-PNG being held under this conference hall.

According to Rev. Binora, the conference Hall was really deteriorated by whether over time and it is really a need that the conference hall be reconstructed.

The General Secretary, Mr. Tokave recalled his youth days where he attended workshops and meetings at this Conference Hall; he said “This is a place that has contributed so much to make me now as your General Church Secretary.”

On Sunday 11th April 2010, a Worship Service was conducted by the ELC-PNG church officers at the Conference Hall to officially decommission the Hall so that reconstruction work can begin. After the service, to mark the decommissioning of the building the pulpit that stood under the Conference Hall’s roof for the last twenty-five (25) years was removed and taken outside the Hall.
