Crossway Baptist Church in Springfield, Missouri, donates $25,000 to Southwest Baptist University to care for the next generation. Dr. Eddie Bumpers, Senior Pastor at Crossway Baptist Church, presented the donation to President Melson during chapel on Monday, February 13.
“The world changers that are here in this room are important for the next generation and are being trained at SBU,” said Wesley Vance, Executive Pastor at Crossway Baptist Church and the Missouri Baptist Convention Vice President. “Behind SBU and its students is a church that believes in the next generation and training up Godly men and women to impact the world.”
"This example of faithful support is making transformational Christ-centered education possible,” said President Melson of Southwest Baptist University. “As a Christ-centered University, we are also an affordable, academically excellent, caring community and continue to be nationally recognized, receiving awards for our schools of business, education, and nursing, and we are expanding with new academic programs in computer science, software engineering, cybersecurity, data analytics, and agriculture to meet the market demand and prepare students for these growing fields. Crossway's investment supports our mission and students who, in turn, are impacting the world for Christ and His Kingdom."
