The heart of Jacksonville College is worshiping the God we study and serve. The chapel at the center of the campus symbolizes how Jesus is at the center of everything done on campus. Sadly, the chapel building cannot be used at this time. Age has caught up to it.
As a temporary solution we are holding chapel services on the bleachers in the gym. As new life is breathed into and a renewed vision is cast for the college, the goal is to move into a new era by restoring the heart and soul of the campus.
To restore the Buckner Chapel to operation would require replacing the air conditioner units, installing a new roof and refurbishing the lighting system. A goal of $500,000 to Restore the Heart of Jacksonville College has been set. This will allow the chapel to be restored and renew the campus for its intended purpose.
Offerings may be mailed to Jacksonville College, 105 B. J. Albritton Drive Jacksonville 75766.
