Southwest Baptist University plans to boost its pastoral training with a $1.1 million donation.
The Bolivar university announced the receipt of an endowed estate from the Blair family, according to a news release. Part of it will go toward establishing The Blair Endowed Center for Training and Pastoral Health.
“The university looks forward with great enthusiasm and anticipation to the impact this center will have both locally and globally as SBU continues to send Bearcats out to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, be on mission with a purpose and change the world for Christ,” said Rick Melson, president of SBU and professor of leadership, in the release.
Programming at the center will focus on burnout prevention, emotional intelligence, maturity development, conflict management training, business processes and people management, according to the release.
