What is the Ad Building Preservation Project?
The Ad Building Preservation Project is being undertaken to preserve the iconic Administration Building on Nebraska Christian’s campus. Built in 1885, the Ad Building has served Central Nebraska by housing Christian education since 1885. The campus has been a college, a teaching school, a high school, and currently is a PreK-12 private Christian school.
What is the timeline?
The Ad Building Preservation Project was launched in February of 2019 is projected to be complete by Homecoming 2019, September 13-14, Lord willing. Work has already begun and will continue as funds are available. NC is committed to completing the project debt-free.
What about the inside of the Ad Building?
Currently the Ad Building is used primarily for administrative purposes. It houses the essential “behind the scenes” work that serves every single student and family on a daily basis. Sealing the building allows our current administration offices to continue functioning in the same space they have since the school was founded in 1959. Please pray with us that God will give our Board of Education His vision for other ways that this building can continue to glorify Him.
What about the Gym Building?
Phase 2A of the Next 50 Years Capital Campaign, which addresses the kitchen, dining hall, and restrooms of the gym building, is running concurrently with the Ad Building Preservation Project. There is another $50,000 match currently available for Phase 2A, and your gift of any amount to that project will be matched dollar for dollar! Learn more about Phase 2A here.
What about the General Budget?
We are humbled and grateful for God’s provision for our General Budget, which is on track this year. This has given NC leadership confidence and affirmation in moving forward with the Ad Building Preservation Project. It’s budget and Phase 2A’s budget must be raised separately from the annual funding for the General Budget.
