Great opportunity for BBC

by Mark Milioni

Would you consider giving a gift to help us continue to equip people to share the message of Christ both here and around the world? What if your gift could be used to train twice as many men and women? Here is some great news — one of our loving donors has made an incredible offer to BBC! This donor has offered BBC a matching gift of $600,000!

This means that your gift to Baptist Bible College, during this special challenge, will have twice the impact! When you give, your tax-deductible donation of $25 can become $50, or a gift of $500 can become $1,000! If your church gives a gift of $1,000, $2,000, $5,000, or even more — no matter the size of the gift — this donor will match it. Many churches are planning to receive a special Christmas offering this year for BBC — that offering will be doubled by our generous donor! Perhaps the first of the year would be a good time to receive a special offering for BBC or to make us part of your 2014 budget.

The details are pretty simple. This donor will match $600,000 in donations between now and January 31, 2014. This means that your gift of any size will be worth twice as much and allow us to double our efforts to make a difference in this world for Christ.

Can I ask you, our alumni, friends, and churches, to consider giving a gift during this special time? Your gift of any size will be greatly appreciated and very carefully used. BBC is dependent on the contributions of generous churches and donors. Your gifts allow us to remain affordable for students preparing for a life of ministry. Won’t you help us as we prepare them to take the message of Christ to the world?

I cannot stress how important your gift is to Baptist Bible College at this time! Your gift of any size will be doubled and will tremendously help us continue fulfilling our purpose of preparing Christian leaders.

May 2014 be a great year for Baptist Bible College and the Baptist Bible Fellowship. Thank you for the privilege of serving your students!
