Thank you for supporting Faith. Below you will find information about two ongoing projects that you can help support, our Alumni Hall Project and our Seminary Building Project. To give directly now, click here.
The Faith Alumni Department appreciates our school's heritage, and we desire to honor our past presidents, professors, coaches, and alumni with a tangible memorial to our history. Alumni Hall will be a place where visiting alumni can call their own and share with their friends and family. It will feature Omaha, Denver, and Faith memories, as well as highlight our music, athletics, and summer team ministries.
Alumni Hall will be in the Nettleton Center and will include
• an expanded and up-to-date concessions stand
• seating and TV monitors to watch our athletic events
• digitally-wrapped columns honoring past presidents
• a three-dimensional timeline of the significant years of our school
Alumni Hall is a project that we want to do with excellence and we even hope to have it in progress by Homecoming 2017. However, we need your support through personal skills, prayers, and financial gifts to make this a reality.
A major aspect of our renovation is the concessions stand which is currently in the Nettleton foyer. We are hoping to replace some old equipment, and provide some additional food options such as soft pretzels, whole pizzas, and fresh warm cookies!
The current concession stand is small so we also plan to expand the area to provide more storage space for the workers. We are looking for licensed contractors such as plumbers and electricians to help us gather quotes as we prepare for this exciting upgrade!
Honoring Our Past – One Brick at a Time
For a $50 donation, an Alumni Hall brick can be dedicated in your name or in honor of someone you love. Sponsoring a brick is a meaningful way to leave your mark on campus or to show respect to a beloved teacher, coach, or family member, while helping make this exciting addition possible!
We hope to fill all the bricks surrounding the display case with plaques that represent various alumni, professors, mission trips, athletic teams, and supporting churches.
Each sponsored brick receives a plaque that will display the information below.
Line 1: Name of Person or Organization
Line 2: Years at Faith or Association to Faith
Line 3: Personalized Phrase
The personalized phrase can be 4-6 words long depending on the length of words. Some people have listed their life Bible verse reference, or others have put a description of how they will remember the person they're honoring.
You also can have a location preference. The brick plaques will be surrounding the current trophy case which will be redesigned to highlight music, athletics, and summer ministries. Some might prefer to be closer to one of these areas more than another.
Please consider how to get involved and help us spread the word about this exciting addition to our school.

As our president, Dr. Jim Tillotson, has traveled across America during the first year of his presidency at Faith, he has been surprised by how many churches are without a pastor. As he has spoken with presidents at sister seminaries, they also report more churches asking for pastors than they have graduates. Jesus’ words in Matthew 9:37 are certainly as true today as when He spoke them: “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.”
Faith Baptist Theological Seminary specializes in training pastors, but we have a great need in our seminary. That need is a seminary building. Our students currently meet in classrooms surrounding our dining hall, which is not an ideal situation. Having a seminary building will help us train more pastors and train them more effectively.
Those of you familiar with Faith remember the Music Building across the street from our campus. The building is structurally sound but in bad shape. We have moved the Music Department out of the building and have decided to convert that building into a seminary building.
The total cost to remodel the building and reconfigure it to meet the needs of the seminary will be $350,000. We are thrilled to announce to you that two donors have stepped forward who will match the funds we raise for this project up to $150,000! That means every dollar you give will be doubled.
It is with great excitement to announce that we have met our goal, and God has brought in the necessary $150,000 to reach this matching gift!
Thank you for your donations and investing in our seminary students as they train to take the Word to the World!
We are utilizing volunteer help for a lot of the renovation work. We invite you to help us and to bring people with you from your church. Email Cody Huber if you are able to help. Volunteer help is the only way we can complete this project on budget.
