Over the last several months, the MJCA School Board and First Baptist Church Stewardship Team have spent much time planning and moving forward together in plans for the new MJCA Athletic Complex. The Athletic Complex will not only replace the facility that was lost in the 2020 tornado, but will be a great enhancement to our campus as a whole and be a part of the greater strategic plan for our campus. This strategic plan that is in process is a huge component of connecting our mission with the Athletic Complex as well as future projects.
We are excited to share the initial renderings of the Athletic Complex project for your viewing. This over state-of-the-art addition to our campus will greatly help our athletic efforts featuring: men's and women's locker rooms, a training room, batting cages, a pitching area, and offices. It has been determined that this over 6,000-square-foot facility will cost approximately $2 million to complete.
What is the plan of action for this project to be completed? We plan to launch a formal capital campaign in the new year to fund the Athletic Complex. We will provide a more detailed cost for the scope of this project at that time.
In the short term, until December 31, we are extending the opportunity for year-end-giving for this project to our MJCA community. All donations processed by December 31 are tax deductible for 2023. If you feel so led, please prayerfully consider giving to the Athletic Complex project. We cannot wait to see how God is going to use this facility for his glory!
