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
