Dr. Bob Jones Jr.
Dr. Bob Jones Jr.’s zeal for Christ, evangelistic fervor and love for missions made him a natural choice as the building’s dedicatee. He gave so much to the ministry at BJU, as well as to mission fields all over the world.
“Dad and I often talked about our desire to see the seminary have its own identifiable presence on campus,” says Dr. Bob Jones III. “When the time of Dad’s departure to Heaven was near, graduates began expressing their desire to have a suitable memorial for him. There was no question in my mind that it had to be a seminary building.”
“I was able to tell him of it a few days before he died. He smiled and received the news with gratitude and thanksgiving for the goodness of God that would make it possible.”
