The Grace Brethren Investment Foundation (GBIF) has recently approved a new first mortgage loan of $2.5 million to the Grace Brethren Church of Clinton, Inc., 6501 Surratts Rd., Clinton, Md. (located near the nation’s capital). Its combined ministries include the Grace Brethren Church of Clinton (Irv Clark, pastor) and the Grace Brethren Christian School (George Hornickel, administrator) a K through 12th grade school). The financing will assist in the construction of a 12,348 square-foot, two-story building on their 17 acres of land.
The first floor will include an elementary library plus three classrooms and a teachers’ lounge. The second floor will include a secondary library with a media center and three classrooms. The new building will be connected to their large rectangular facility of around 125,000 square feet, which currently houses the worship center, nursery, first and second floor school rooms, and the church and school offices.
“GBIF is delighted to partner with the Clinton church and school, ministries dating back to the 1960’s in the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches, on this major new step of faith,” says Ken Seyfert, executive director of operations. “The addition will most certainly aid in giving more young people a Christian education, as well as help the ministries reach more of the varied people groups in the greater D.C. area for Christ.”
