Construction on an addition and renovations at the Bethel Seminary San Diego campus began this week. The project is expected to be completed in fall 2012.
“There are many people who have been dreaming about and planning for this project for a long time, and I’m very glad to see construction begin,” says Bethel President Jay Barnes.
The addition and renovations include a two-story 14,500 square foot addition and 6,800 square foot renovation allowing for a 380-400 seat chapel and conference center, additional classroom spaces, offices, and an expanded student center.
Bethel Seminary San Diego is the only accredited evangelical seminary in San Diego, strategically placed to make an ever-increasing impact on the city and region.
“In addition to serving a larger student body, this new and remodeled space can be used as a center for spiritual renewal for the community,” says Bethel Seminary San Diego Dean John Lillis. “It will allow Bethel Seminary to provides resources to the broader evangelical community of San Diego in new ways by creating a venue for summits, workshops, and weddings.”
Fundraising for the San Diego project is still underway. Those interested in helping expand the ministry of Bethel Seminary San Diego should contact Mark Pearsey at firstname.lastname@example.org or 619.325.5225.
