Background: Beginning in 2003 when GBC was established in partnership with Indigenous Ministries, students met in rented facilities. In 2007, two acres were purchased but construction of the campus did not start until 2014 when the GBC chapel was built, and then in Spring 2015 shipping containers were turned into men’s dorms and the men’s bathroom block.
The dorms were refurbished in 2019, but there were not enough funds to refurbish the bathrooms which were in badly need of upkeep.
The additional year’s wear and tear has made the repairs more expensive than sensible, and the decision was made recently to replace the containers with a permanent building for the men. For those who are wondering, the septic system, built in 2015, is more than adequate.
The facilities are used daily by 40-45 men on the campus for nine months of the year. It is also available for guests on campus each week for church services held in the chapel. There is no women’s dormitory on campus; the women live off-campus.
Cost of this project: $10,000
Funding still needed: $9,000
We are seeking financial partners for this project. This completed project will enable GBC to meet current needs and position the school for future growth. Thank you for prayerfully considering a generous gift to move this very important project forward to completion. Last month we shared that GBC was hoping to re-open in September, but was unable to secure government approval. Eager students arrive on campus soon as the school has been given tentative approval to begin the week of October 5-9. It’s urgent this building be completed as soon as possible.
