I emailed my good friend Ben Mandrell, Senior Pastor of Englewood Baptist Church, the other day to find out what some of us in Nashville might be able to do to help out at Union.  Ben didn’t have much information for me but he did let me know how the Lord’s providence allowed Englewood to tend to a major need of students on campus. A few years ago the church had purchased a local hotel next door. Several ideas were mentioned concerning the use of the property. To my knowledge, it has been used for several ministries within the church while still functioning as a hotel. However, it seems that divine providence has revealed the greatest use of this facility thus far. Englewood has offered the hotel space to Union as a means of housing over 300 students who no longer have a dorm room. The Lord certainly provides.
