A Compelling Vision
We envision a future in which ABHE members and affiliates will comprise a spiritually robust, culturally relevant and professionally respected 21st century North American biblical higher education movement whose contributions to global gospel impact are multiplying in scale, scope and significance.
A Warm Invitation
As God stirs your heart for what He is doing across the biblical higher education movement of North America, we warmly invite you to consider ABHE as part of your stewardship vision. Invest in the next generation of spiritual leaders through the initiatives and training events offered by ABHE. Without investor partners, we cannot do this. But together, we are more than able to serve a new generation of students with spiritual vibrancy and academic excellence. Every donation will be carefully invested in the forward momentum of the Association, to strengthen institutional leaders and expand their capacity for global gospel impact.
3 Pillars Campaign
ABHE’s 3-year campaign to raise $780,000 is funding the most expansive array of leadership development initiatives in the history of ABHE. Launched in the Fall of 2019, these 3 Pillars of impact include:
- Board Governance Training & Certification – In partnership with the MJ Murdock Charitable Trust – this program will provide 5 days of professional training for up to 16 institutions per year in the essential principles for excellence in board governance.
- Executive Leadership Development & Certification – This six-track program provides professional leadership development and certification for the top six chief officers of an institution including 36 workshop presentations delivered through four events over two years.
- Strategic Intelligence – The Bible Exam Project funded by Hobby Lobby will revise and expand the decades-old ABHE Bible Exam to provide a premier tool for Bible knowledge assessment and make this available for all ABHE institutions as a part of their membership benefits. The Annual Report Analytics Project will provide strategic intelligence with comparative data on admissions, retention, and financial operations giving ABHE institutions valuable insight to benchmark their own data against association
Thank you for your partnership in this strategic campaign, for your investment in the forward momentum of the biblical higher education movement. Your generous pledge to be given over the next three years is sincerely appreciated.
For those whose hearts have been moved by the value of the biblical higher education movement, we invite your consideration of including ABHE in your estate or deferred giving plans. By designating a specific amount, percentage or other means of contribution, donors may take advantage of significant tax savings, ensure the fulfillment of their stewardship vision and help ensure the future vitality of the biblical higher education movement. The new ABHE Legacy Fellowship is comprised of those who have included ABHE in their deferred giving plans and have indicated the same through a signed Declaration of Intent. Charter Membership will be open to all who remember ABHE in their deferred giving plans before the rise of the 2016 Annual Meeting. For more information and followup, contact Sherrill Babb, Legacy Fellowship Director.
