Burn the Mortgage:

Breakthrough Moment

We thank God for the 400+ donors whose generosity gave $3.2 million over the past five years to the Burn The Mortgage campaign. We are especially thankful to Vicki and Rick James who matched every gift given. We also sold $800,000 of unused property which enabled us to reach our $4 million goal. To God be the glory! Join us at 6 pm on Sunday, October 10 to Burn the Paid-off Mortgage and celebrate our 150th anniversary at the Marriott Hotel in Dayton.

Giving Challenge

Thanks to some generous donors, all new gifts to the campaign will be doubled in the final year of the campaign. Your gift of any size counts. In honor of our 150th in October, many are giving a gift with a 1, 5 and 0 in it.

Giving So Far

$3.97 Million Goal

100% to Goal 100%

The Seminary is so close to a breakthrough moment.

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 on October 11, 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.
