New Building Update

So far, $162,398.08 has been given.

After three years of raising funds for the new TTU BCM building, we are coming down to the last month of giving for this campaign. As of November 30, we have received $162,398.08  toward our goal of $200,000. We need to reach our goal by December 31. Many of you have already given and pledged for this campaign. Thank you for your generosity. I am asking for all of our BCM alumni and friends to help us meet our goal and to please consider a gift to the fund to help us make this happen.

The new building is providing much needed space for this ministry to continue to grow. We are grateful to the Tennessee Baptist Convention for helping us make this building a reality.

To make your gift go to https://tntechbcm.com/give/ or use the Donate button above.

Prayerfully consider how God has blessed you and make a gift today. There are two ways to give:

Psalm 62:2 says, “He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will never be shaken.” We need to continue to trust in our “Rock”. Don’t let what is happening in the world shake you! Continue to Trust God!
