The Texas Baptist Men Builders broke ground for its new 8,000 square-foot Builders' headquarters, which will be located next to the Dixon Mission Equipping Center at 5351 Catron Dr. in Dallas.
Justin Horton, campus director for the new McAllen campus of South Texas School of Christian Studies worked with TBM’s Retiree Builders to transform an old church property into a new seminary campus.
The Retiree Builders measured and cut sheetrock for classrooms on campus. A new fence was built to surround the perimeter of the property. The fence unifies all of the buildings on the property, satisfies city ordinances and gives the campus a cohesive look. The once beautiful landscape will be revitalized and a courtyard will be created, giving students a place for peace and solitude. A hospitality suite will serve as a temporary residence and office space for faculty and guests visiting the McAllen campus. The goal is to attract scholars who will offer students unique educational opportunities. A commercial kitchen was cleaned and repaired, including a dining hall to seat 200 people.
