Dear Missions Committee:
Thank you for your faithful support! With your help, Manhattan Christian College is impacting the world for Christ.
Founded in 1927, MCC is a place where every student and graduate is prepared and motivated to penetrate the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ regardless of their chosen profession. Therefore, the core of the curriculum is the Bible and Christian Leadership. Students receive an education that deepens their knowledge of the Word of God, matures them in their personal relationship with Christ, and prepares them to be able to share that eternal Word with the world.
God has called every believer to “go into all the world.” Manhattan Christian College educates, equips, and enriches Christian leaders to be leaders who have the heart to change the world.
The 2016-17 academic year has begun and it promises to be an exciting one! It has been 23 years since any new building has been constructed on the MCC campus and construction on the new Activity Center is underway. Weather permitting it will be completed in 10 months, just in time for next school year.
The Activity Center will help to meet the changing needs of the student body as well as better fulfill the mission of the college. Unlimited access to a facility large enough to hold special events as well as support the athletic program will provide new opportunities for MCC to bring the entire college family together for activities, worship, and outreach.
The Activity Center is part of the Next Generation Campaign (announced in April 2015) that has three strategic priorities and I am happy to say that because of the generosity of many faithful friends and ministry partners, we are taking the necessary steps to bring these goals into reality.
It is not too late for your congregation to be a part of this unprecedented journey to build an Activity Center that will change the way MCC does student life on campus every day. Every gift given helps us meet these goals debt-free. Gifts of $1,000 or more will have name recognition in the new facility.
In the classroom, we also have three new professors who are bringing fresh perspectives and a wide variety of ministry experiences to challenge the students. Dave Cupery, Assistant Professor of Intercultural Studies; Dr. Dave Henry, Associate Professor of Bible; and Dr. Stephen Waers, Assistant Professor of Theology are all making personal connections with students and contributing to the family atmosphere on campus. MCC has a 25:1 student to faculty ratio.
Specific Ways that Your Congregation Can Partner With Us:
1. Help us recruit students by recommending those in your church and community who want to pursue Christian leadership.
2. Financially support MCC’s ministry of training the future leaders of the church so that we can keep the cost of education as low as possible.
3. Pray faithfully for more harvest workers in the Kingdom of God and for the effectiveness of our faculty and staff in preparing our student Christian leaders.
With the partnership of churches and individuals, Manhattan Christian College will continue providing a practical ministry program which takes students to the next level of maturity and service. Christian higher education is an extension of your church and we are grateful for your support.
Thank you for all you do to help us reach our goals as well as keep pace with ever increasing costs.
Serving with you,
J. Kevin Ingram
