FORT WORTH, Texas (SWBTS) – Partners of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary now have the opportunity to pave the way for the seminary’s future, while memorializing those friends of the seminary, faculty members and graduates who have impacted the Fort Worth institution.

Through Southwestern Seminary’s Pave the Way campaign, ministry partners can inscribe messages in tribute to loved ones on bricks that will be laid in the pedestrian mall being paved in front of the seminary’s new chapel.

Although the seminary will receive donations for this campaign on an ongoing basis, individuals or groups can have their engraved bricks installed for the Dec. 1 dedication of the chapel if they make a donation by Aug. 18. They can also make an additional donation for a duplicate brick to display in their homes or offices or to give as a gift.

Ministry partners may engrave a brick at the following rates: $50 for a 4-by-8-inch brick with three lines of text and $100 for an 8-by-8-inch brick with six lines of text. Each line of text contains 15 characters. Duplicate bricks may be engraved for a lower rate: $50 for a 4-by-8-inch brick and $75 for an 8-by-8-inch brick.
