WINDSOR, CO (September 4, 2008) – Covenant Bible College has sold its Windsor campus for $1.6 million to a couple who want to use the property for ministry and community service.

CBCCBC closed the campus in 2006 and ceased operations at its campuses in La Merced, Ecuador, and Strathmore, Alberta, in 2007.

“The CBC board is excited to see the Colorado campus go to someone with a vision for new ministry,” says Paul Lessard, acting director of CBC. “It is a wonderful facility in an unbeatable location and it is great to know the Lord will continue to use it.”

Gary and Jonell Young own a sign business in Denver and Las Vegas. According to Lessard, “Gary feels the first part of his life was ‘learning,’ the second part was ‘earning’ and now, he is in the ‘returning’ phase.”

“Gary felt a strong call to purchase the campus and that the ministry will follow,” Lessard says. The Youngs are considering a variety of possibilities that include weddings in the chapel, providing continued housing for workers still helping with cleanup following the Windsor tornado, offering space for church plants, and being the site of discipleship and worship retreats.

The Strathmore campus was sold in 2007. Negotiations are under way with the Ecuadorian National Police to purchase the La Merced facility.
