Unexpected Blessing Funds Guest House at Asbury
May 12, 2016
WILMORE, Ky. — A generous gift from a donor will create a new space for hospitality and fellowship at Asbury University.
Affirming Asbury’s commitment to Christ-centered community life, the donor — who requested not to be named — approached Asbury with a proposal to fund a University guest house to primarily service out-of-town visitors. To be called Windsor Manor — a name with special significance for the donor — the guest house will be another avenue for Christian community at Asbury.
“Biblical hospitality is one of the truest ways to tangibly demonstrate our love for others,” said Asbury President Sandra C. Gray. “This is the spirit and wish of the donor making this marvelous gift — that Windsor Manor would be a place where Asbury’s guests feel special, well cared for and renewed in their relationship with the Lord.”
Special features of Windsor Manor will include a kitchen and dining room, a beautiful back yard with room for fellowship and a reception area large enough to accommodate 60-80 people. While parameters for use are still being shaped, the guest will also be available on a limited basis for special student functions. Construction is expected to begin next week on property that is on the east side of Jewell Road, approximately .25 miles from the University’s Luce Physical Activities Center.
