CBTSeminary Moving to a New Location in Owensboro, KY
OWENSBORO, Kentucky – Today Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary announced that its host church, Grace Reformed Baptist Church, has closed on an acquisition of new facilities on Frederica St. in the heart of Owensboro, KY.
Due to the tremendous blessing of God over the past 2 years, the church and seminary has outgrown their current facilities. The new building, formerly the meeting place of Ignite 360, will more than double the amount of available space for both the church and the seminary.
“These new facilities provide comfortable space for the programs of both the church and seminary for many years to come,” says Sam Waldron, pastor of GRBC and president of CBTSeminary. “We rejoice in this provision which the Lord has so graciously given to us.
We are also grateful that he is planting a ‘banner for truth’ in the heart of Owensboro on the corner of Frederica and the Bypass.”
The church is currently raising the funds needed to complete extensive renovations on the building. They hope to complete the renovations by the first quarter of 2023 and to do so without incurring debt.
In addition to enlarged worship and fellowship space for GRBC, the facilities will feature a lecture hall, increased office and meeting space for seminary administration, an enlarged library, and several additional classrooms.
“We have sought the Lord and He has provided for His people,” said Brice Bigham, director of development at CBTSeminary. “We are excited about the opportunities that this opens for our students, both in Owensboro and abroad. The provision of this facility is a critical step in advancing both the quality and expansion of our programs.”
The vision of CBTSeminary is to see the church of the Lord Jesus Christ strengthened and expanded worldwide, to the end that Christ would be known, loved, and exalted. Its mission, therefore, is help the church to prepare men to undertake the full range of pastoral responsibilities they will face in serving Christ and His kingdom, and to equip Christians for effective service in the church. They do this work by providing rigorous academic training and by facilitating extensive pastoral mentoring.
