Thanks to a very generous donation God has answered our prayers of being able to help staff reduce the impact of rising costs of living in Bozeman, MT. Thank you for being a part of this much needed goal!

Student Recruitment
GOAL: $5,000

RAISED: $3,025

  • 60.5% 60.5%

It costs money to recruit students. MBC is very careful and strategic in its use of recruitment funds. Nevertheless, it costs money to host a student visit day, travel to meet a strategic group, print for mailings, produce a video, or get word out online. You can help us reach mission fit students who can be trained to be faithful witnesses for Jesus in this world!

Staff
Staff Continuing Education
GOAL: $20,000

RAISED: $0

  • 0% 0%

MBC has a highly qualified staff and faculty. Over 90% of our faculty have advanced degrees. But part of being a great teacher or administrator is being a great learner. We have multiple staff and faculty who are pursuing continuing education in order to carry out MBC’s mission even better. You can help support the development of MBC’s excellent people!

Student Vehicles
GOAL: 2 Donated Cars

RAISED: 1

  • 50% 50%

MBC students need vehicles to drive to their jobs, to get groceries, and so on. Most are driving older vehicles. Inevitably, a major breakdown occurs, leaving some students in a tight situation. Or, as happened recently, one of our students was hit by a drunk driver who fled the scene. If you have a used vehicle that could be donated to a student in need, this could be a huge blessing!

Staff
Staff Recruitment
GOAL: $40,000

RAISED: $0

  • 0% 0%

MBC runs with a tight staff – just 10 full time and 5 part time staff/faculty. There are about a dozen adjunct faculty who teach just one or two courses. We have an EXCELLENT team, but we could really use more players on that team. A major goal of ours is to add a funds development person who can help us add alternative income streams and forge relationships with additional financial partners. Maybe you would like to help make that happen!

GOAL: $10,000

RAISED: $0

  • 0% 0%

The last couple of years have changed the way classrooms need to be designed in order to accomodate online learning and the sharing of information. By upgrading the technology in classrooms, MBC will not only be able to accomodate these situations, but will also be able to broaden our audience and offer some new and exciting remote learning opportunities.

The Gail Horton Library at MBC is in need of several new editions of books, multiple pieces of furniture need to be replaced, and a lot of the artwork needs to be updated. Help us make the library a more robust, inviting and aesthetically pleasing environment for students to gather for study groups and times of fellowship.

Some extremely generous financial partners took us above and beyond our expectations.  They supplied additional funding to surpass the basic need and helped us purchase a 2016 Ford Shuttlebus for nearly $40,000.  This vehicle may open up an additional income stream as well as meet our transportation needs.

NEW Building Fund
GOAL: $7,000,000

RAISED: $3,000

  • 0% 0%

In May 2022, following much prayer and consideration, MBC’s Board arrived at a decision to begin taking the steps to build the final building that can fit on MBC’s property.  We believe it’s critical to meet our most pressing housing need!  We may be able to accomplish some other facility goals as well.  And though such a building won’t give MBC a complete campus, it will nevertheless be a huge asset going forward as the Lord makes the path clear.  We are beginning the process of work with our architect and will be updating this section as we can share more details.  Based on preliminary architectural work, we are looking at approximately 21,000 square feet with a rough guesstimate cost of $7 million dollars.  In keeping with our no debt policy, we’ll be seeking to raise these funds and eagerly watching to see how God will provide.  The building fund is now open, and we’ll be updating as we go!

School
Multimedia Studio
GOAL: $4,000

RAISED: $40

  • 1% 1%

As technology advances so does the need for utilizing these advances to reach more people with the Gospel. Help MBC turn one of our office spaces into a fully-functional multimedia studio. The addition of microphones, lighting, camera equipment, sound proofing, backdrops, staging items, tables, and chairs will help us acheive this goal.

Finance
Alternative Income Streams
GOAL: 4 Income Streams

RAISED: 0

  • 0% 0%

A key initiative of MBC’s Strategic Plan is to start alternative income streams.  Recognizing the changes in our culture and regulatory environment, MBC’s Board believes that for Bible college education to be sustainable and debt-free, it must be supplemented.  Alternative revenue streams, done right, can be training grounds for students, can bless the community by meeting needs, and can provide funds to advance the college’s mission.  But whether small or large, a coffee hut or an assisted living facility, income streams need start-up capital.  Maybe you have a key component – a capital donation; a building for use; the expertise to oversee startups.  If so, talk to us!

MBC was recently blessed with an extremely generous donation that was designated for this exact need of having a multi-use vehicle on campus. The new addition of the 2018 Honda Odyssey is truly an answer to our prayers and we are beyond thankful to God and the people that made this possible.

The signs on campus need a facelift and the need for more signs on nearby roads would help spread the word about MBC’s presence in the area. Want to help us out? $800 could handle a sign. $4500 could handle the whole project.

MBC’s student housing is such a blessing! Yet buildings have needs. MBC is committed to stewarding our resources well. Currently, we have lots of flooring that is showing its age and ready for replacement. We also have windows that have lost their seal and need replacing. $4000 could floor an apartment (7 needed). $300 can replace a window. $3,000 would fix them all!

Apartment Furnishings
GOAL: $18,000

RAISED: $0

  • 0% 0%

One small income stream MBC could realize is the rental of open apartment space during the summers when quite a few of our students are home or on ministry assignments. We intend to rent to people who share our values and especially bless fellow believers. But such apartments need queen beds rather than bunk beds. They need coffee pots and cookware and towels and decorations (things students bring when they move in). Maybe you would help us outfit an apartment for rental. Just a basic bed and mattress is around $1000. Or outfit the whole apartment with two beds and all the other items for $3000.
