Plans for Ligonier’s New Campus Move Forward
Architectural plans for the three main structures now situated on Ligonier’s new campus have been approved by Seminole County in central Florida. This allows for project development to move forward for Ligonier Academy of Biblical and Theological Studies, Ligonier International Headquarters, and Shadowlake Studios, which will house our new media center.
While architecturally beautiful and of significant size, the buildings now standing on our 34-acre lakeside property were originally designed as private residences. To receive a certificate of occupancy, those former homes must be renovated to be in compliance with county code for commercial property. That includes providing handicapped accessibility, adding an elevator to each building, and retrofitting the space to accommodate classrooms and offices for ministry use.
With this approval, Ligonier is now seeking a general contractor to oversee the project and is taking bids for the necessary construction and renovation to follow. In planning for a number of years, Ligonier Academy has been established to more completely fulfill our mission both now and to future generations. Here We Stand: The Campaign for Ligonier Ministries is designed to fund this ambitious endeavor. This unwavering commitment to historic Christianity will, by God’s grace, be used to impact the p the culture with a new generation of reformers to stand for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
