CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – The Eula Mae and John Baugh Foundation has given $150,000 over a three-year period to Campbellsville University to support the university’s Church Outreach Program.
At a recent meeting, directors of the Eula Mae and John Baugh Foundation voted to make a $150,000 commitment over a three-year period to Campbellsville University in Campbellsville Kentucky.
Jacqueline (Baugh) Moore, vice president of the Baugh Foundation, said “Campbellsville University is committed to academic freedom within a faith environment that is Baptist in tradition. The mission and work of Campbellsville impacts not only Kentucky but also Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and beyond.
“We pray that the influence of CU’s Church Outreach Program will be felt across a wide range of communities and churches and enrich lives and generations with the gospel. We are honored to partner with our dear friends, Dr. Leslie Hollon, Dr. Bruce Heilman and Tim Heilman in support of Campbellsville University.”
“The $150,000 gift from the Baugh Foundation to Church Outreach at Campbellsville University will provide opportunities for students to develop their gifts and clarify their calling in local churches,” Dr. G. Ted Taylor, director of Church Outreach, said.
“Students involved in church outreach are Kingdom builders advancing the Kingdom of God through the church,” Taylor said.
“The core values of Church Outreach are ‘Christ centered, church connected and changed lives’ which connect strongly with the Baugh Foundation. Because of this generous gift from the Baugh Foundation, Church Outreach at Campbellsville University is anticipating exponential growth,” Taylor said.
Devan Bishop, a Campbellsville University graduate student from Campbellsville, and member of the Church Outreach team, said, “The donations made by the Baugh Foundation enable me personally to spread the gospel through the efforts of effective leaders.”
Bishop said the money will help support his living expenses as a commuter and student at Campbellsville University.
He said the money also will enable the teams to use campus vehicles to be transported from place to place while receiving ministry experience in the churches visited.
“Church Outreach is a great program that is enabling young ministers to participate in God’s Kingdom work within His churches,” Bishop said.
