October 2020 Update

 

NEWS

We started a new academic year on October 18, the sixty-fifth in the history of Southern Methodist College, with 18 active students and with others planning to enroll soon.

The General Conference Board of Administration has delayed a plan to remodel the Lynn Corbett Library into a building that would house the entire operation of the College including offices, library, class rooms, storage, etc., due to a Covid-related sharp spike in construction costs.

We are conducting a special promotion to allow individuals to audit our video classes until the end of December for $100 per course. Contact me for more information.

Our traditional fall fundraiser was cancelled due to COVID concerns.  We hope to have our traditional barbecue fundraiser in February.

 

BLESSINGS

We are open and busy doing the work God called us to. We are glad that the coronavirus does not affect our ability to provide training over the Internet.

We are thankful for gifts from God’s people that have enabled us to pay our salaries and operating expenses, even without the fall fundraiser. Praise the Lord! The financial model adopted by the Board last year is working. We praise the Lord for His faithfulness to us! Thank you to all who have given and continue to give,

 

CHALLENGES

Pray for giving to remain consistent and generous through the coronavirus crisis.

Recruit new students. Our goal is to exceed the twenty-six students we had the privilege of working with last academic year.  We believe that there are many more potential students who can benefit from our programs. A number of full tuition scholarships are available. Contact me if you are interested.

 

Thank you for your prayers and continuing support!
