Gunn explains the church voted to amend its budget to include the $10,000 gift during its regular business meeting. Gunn said he was “burdened for the college” after attending the last Trustees meeting and presented the suggestion of financial support to church members.
“Brewton-Parker’s importance to our congregation is significant because it is an institution of good, Christian higher education, and because of the college’s historic value and geographic value. It is the only Christian higher education institution in central South Georgia,” said Gunn. “I think we treat Brewton-Parker like we do our salvation. It’s a best kept secret, and sometimes we don’t share it like we ought to.”
“In the big scope, (this gift) is not an awful lot but the Lord can use it and bless it. If He can feed the multitudes with a few loaves and fishes, He can use this gift at Brewton-Parker,” added Gunn.
CFO Natasha Mason expressed her gratitude on behalf of the college, “I can’t begin to explain the feeling of joy and happiness I had when receiving this check on behalf of Brewton-Parker College. I continue to be amazed each day at how the Lord is working to keep Brewton-Parker College strong for Christian higher education in South Georgia. The faculty, staff and students of Brewton-Parker College are very blessed to have a wonderful group of Trustees working so diligently each day for the betterment of the College.”
