Harold Mathena announced in chapel on October 16, 2014, that he is bestowing to Southwestern Seminary a gift of $12 million for the construction of a new building for The College at Southwestern and the Roy Fish School of Evangelism and Missions. Other gifts are already in hand for this project. This lead gift will cover roughly half the cost of construction.
The new building will be located on the immediate west side of Pecan Manor. In addition to housing the college and the school of evangelism and missions, Patterson says the building will contain up-to-date classroom facilities and a memorial to Lottie Moon, a Southern Baptist missionary who spent nearly 40 years teaching and evangelizing in China. The memorial will contain some of Moon’s belongings as well as her Chinese home. Ground was officially broken for the construction of Mathena Hall on October 21, 2015, and construction began in 2016.
