Seminary Building Renovation Project
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.
We are writing to ask you to give to this important project. We cannot think of another investment that will continually produce more pastors for churches than this one will.
No gift is too small. Whatever you give will be matched. If you give $10, your gift becomes $20. If you give $100, your gift becomes $200.
We want to raise $150,000 by January 31. Any contribution is tax-deductible. If you send your gift by December 31, you can have the tax benefit for this year.
God has blessed us with seminary students who want to make a difference. Thank you for your investment in their training to help them take the Word to the World.
If you would like to make a donation to our Seminary Building Renovation Project, you may so by calling our Advancement Department at 1.800.409.3305 or you may give online here.
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.
