Ever since Nelson Christian School Society (NCSS) was founded 2003, there has been a vision of serving families and providing life-impacting Christian education to the West Kootenays and across the province of B.C. More than 25 years later, we are just as passionate and deliberate in implementing this vision, and we are embarking on a journey to purchase and renovate a permanent site at 570 Johnstone Road in Nelson, B.C. This new property will allow the operations of four NCSS ‘entities’ : Nelson Christian Community School (NCCS), CHEK ABC Offices; Nelson Preschool Program and Living Books.
Fundraising Goals for the Purchase and Renovation of a New Facility
The goal for the purchase and immediate renovations of the new property is estimated to be $1,325,000. (Additional funds beyond would allow us to tackle “wish list” items.) On February 28, 2023 an offer to purchase the property was accepted. The purchase price was well below the commercial appraisal of $1,620,000. By the end of April 2023, NCSS had raised enough funds in pledges and donations, plus had secured a mortgage to allow us to remove conditions and move towards owning the building. NCSS will take possession of 570 Johnstone Road on May 29, 2023 and will open for a new school year in September 2023.
How can you help?
Our Capital Campaign will require a strong and ongoing level of support from parents, grandparents, alumni, staff and friends. The key to our success will be sacrificial giving. Together, with everyone giving according to equal sacrifice (not equal amounts) we can build a stronger community to fulfill God’s purpose for Christian education through NCSS.
