WILMORE, KY (July 25, 2011) – Asbury Theological Seminary announced today that it will be undergoing additional construction of 50 new family housing units in the North Phase of the Ellsworth and Janet Kalas Family housing complex, also know as Kalas Village, thanks to the generous donation of $13million provided by the Bill and Carol Latimer Foundation.
In addition, the Foundation will assist Asbury Seminary in constructing a community center designed to promote relationships and community formation among the married students who attend the Seminary. The housing units will be designed to accommodate families of various sizes and built to substantially conform to the current family housing that was dedicated on May 16, 2011. Asbury Seminary will use the net income from the family housing units to fund student scholarships.
President Timothy C. Tennent said, “Asbury Theological Seminary remains deeply committed to providing quality residential theological education. The support we have received from the Latimer family has truly been a blessing from God. I would like to thank the Latimer’s for their generous donations over the past two years that will enable Asbury Seminary to continue to advance forward in its global mission.”
