What happens when you reach a $31 million, five-year campaign goal in only three years? Well, you celebrate God’s incredible provision, and then seek to widen your vision in step with His!
That’s what happened at Covenant College in 2008. We watched churches, alumni, foundations, families, and friends give above and beyond in challenging economic times to support Covenant’s mission. Three years into the five-year campaign, God pushed past our original plans and continued to provide to meet additional needs.
Now, after much prayer and deliberation, we are moving forward in faith, expanding the original campaign to encompass eight years and a goal of $53 million. We are excited about the opportunity this affords us to reach forward and complete needed building and renovation projects, to continue providing much-needed scholarships and a vital, Christ-centered liberal arts education for our students, and to steward and enrich our core mission for years to come.
The BUILD campaign will now span 2005-2013. Building on the momentum of the original campaign, we continue to raise funds and introduce new friends to the College. Currently, God has provided $46.4 million toward our expanded $53 million goal. We are grateful for the generosity of so many people, and celebrate God’s incredible provision, now five years into an eight-year campaign.
Here’s a look at the BUILD campaign goals by the numbers:
||$11 million ($2.2m/year, 5 years)
||$17.6 million ($2.2m/year, 8 years)
The BUILD campaign is designed to have a great impact on our campus and community. Please pray with us for God’s continued provision, and that in all of these plans and purposes, Christ would have the preeminence.
