Seminary Building Renovation Update
The siding is off the old Music Building’s exterior, and the new ceilings has been installed. The recent renovations for the new seminary building are progressing well, and the workers are pleased with the goals they accomplished in the first work day. Although there are challenges to renovating a building, like taking off the walls and reinsulating the facility, the team of workers is confident that the renovations can be done by the start of the 2017 school year.
The project that officially began in September had many trials earlier this summer. Curt Fincham, Faith’s maintenance director, said that the progression for the plans themselves took a lot longer to be approved than he had wanted, but he is thankful for the goals that have been accomplished for the new seminary building. Even though the plans may have been slower than expected, it is satisfying to see the progression in a short time.
For the next renovation day, the work crew has set goals to accomplish. A smaller goal is taking care of carpeting the inside, and a bigger, more time-consuming goal is taking out all the windows and framing the new windows. The window framing will not be an easy task, but the team of workers will rise to the challenge and do the best they can to get this goal accomplished.
We look forward to what the team of workers is doing on the new seminary building, and we eagerly await to see the finished product.

Work Teams Needed for Renovation Project
We are undertaking a major renovation project during the 2016-2017 school year, and we need the help of work teams from churches.
Last fall we moved our Music Department from its building across the street from our main campus into the Nettleton Center to give our music staff better facilities. We will now renovate the former music building to be our seminary building. This renovation will give our seminary a greater identity and visibility.
We plan to do most of the renovation work ourselves, but we are counting on individuals and missions teams from churches to help us. Listed below are some areas where you can help:
BUILDING: Deck and stairs
FRAMING: Walls and windows
HANGING: Drywall, interior doors, light fixtures
HELPING: Electrical, HVAC, plumbing
INSTALLLING: Aluminum soffit, fascia, vinyl siding, bathroom fixtures, cabinets and countertops, PTAC units, windows
LAYING: Brick, carpet tile, ceramic tile
PAINTING/STAINING: Ceilings, doors, walls (all interior)
POURING: Concrete sidewalks, steps, driveway, parking lot
REMOVING: Bushes and shrubbery, carpet and floor coverings, concrete, drywall, furniture, interior doors and trim, interior walls and stairways, shelving, windows
TRIMMING: Baseboard, doors, stair rails, windows (all interior)
As you can see, we have need of skilled workers and people who can assist skilled workers.
