150 Years of History
Burn the Mortgage
In November 2016, United began a campaign to become debt free. A mortgage balance of $3.97 million was costing the seminary $400,000 per year in principal and interest payments. We wanted to invest that money in scholarships for students instead, so we embarked on an ambitious goal to pay off the mortgage and become debt free by United’s 150th anniversary in October 2021.
Every dollar contributes to a breakthrough moment, not just for the seminary, but for future leaders to come. As United becomes debt free, more dollars are available for scholarships, which means students graduate with less debt and more freedom to follow the Lord’s call.
