A big “thank you” from the Institut Biblique de Nogent!

IBN fundraiser Rachel Vaughan shares the latest news

This year, the Institut Biblique de Nogent is celebrating its centenary: 100 years of training evangelical pastors, evangelists, and missionaries. A recent count showed that over 2,000 students have studied at the Institute since it opened on 17t October 1921.

As you may know, we’ve been raising funds for an important development project, which will contribute to training the next generations of pastors and Christian leaders. Thanks to your support and prayers, the fourth building on our site is nearing completion. This new accommodation block will almost double our capacity, with 18 rooms, 6 flats (2- and 3-bedroom), and a new dining room. The current dining room will be turned into a new classroom.

We praise God for His faithfulness in every aspect of the project, particularly given the Covid pandemic and all its ramifications. We’ve received over €1,515,000 in gifts and grants, plus a bank loan for €1,000,000. However, following the building work, we need to repair and resurface the courtyard. Planning regulations in the area mean that special materials must be used, which brings the total cost of the project (including furnishings) to around €2,650,000. Please pray with us for God to provide the remaining €137,000 needed before the end of April 2022 to cover the full cost of the construction.

It seems only fitting that this new building, an important investment for the future ministry of the Institute, was inaugurated this centenary year. The ceremony t place on Saturday 2n April 2022We would like to thank France Mission and all of you for your support and prayers for this project.
