Under beautiful clear skies on February 6, we held a very special ground breaking ceremony for the next building of the Grace Bible College campus; the library and classroom building. This is a very important next step for this campus because, first, it will provide home for the over 15,000+ books waiting in California to be shipped over to India. Second, the students need to have access to this library to help them in their studies at GBC. Third, this will take us one giant step closer to accreditation status.

It’s hard to believe that just a year ago this month, we held the dedication ceremony for the Memorial Chapel and shortly after that, the boys’ shipping container dorms, bathroom block and the dining hall building went up. We are so very, very grateful to those who have prayed for and given to these vital projects. You are ministry partners in the truest sense of the term. We aren’t making this campus for any other reason than to train young men and women in India as future leaders who will be well equipped to share the eternal hope found in Jesus Christ.

The Grace Bible College student body, faculty and staff and Indigenous Ministries’ staff gathered for prayer and dedication of the facility.  Not pictured are many others from the community, churches and our children’s home  who came to be part of this very special time.

There are 55 students on the campus using every facility daily and it’s truly heart warming to observe as Dee and I and our team are here this month for the graduation ceremony and the Winter Teaching Module. Soon, we will be able to increase the student body as more facilities are completed to meet needs of the students and faculty. Please pray with us for the $85,000 needed to complete this building.

Launch of Library/Classroom Building Capital Funding:

We have a very special and rare opportunity to (literally!) get in on the ground floor of making this building come to life through our prayers and financial gifts.

The cost to build the building is $85,000 and we are asking that you pray with us for the Lord to move hearts to bring this amount in quickly. To donate, click the blue donate button on the right, and select “GBC Building Fund.” in the drop down menu.
