Tradition of Generosity
The degree to which the MPCS community has rallied in support of the campaign has been overwhelmingly encouraging. The fact that the Murray Innovation Center was built debt-free is a testament to the MPCS community’s generosity and its uncompromising commitment to ensure that MPCS students continue to be equipped with the resources to identify and make the most of their God-given talents.

Completing the Original Campus Master Plan
After 12 years and three ambitious projects, families, foundations, and friends gave sacrificially to the mission of Mount Paran Christian School to ultimately complete a $32M capital campaign. The construction of the Murray Innovation Center completed the original Campus Master Plan from 2007.
We are forever grateful and thankful for the generosity of our parents, staff, grandparents, supporting foundations, and corporate partners. Without your joint vision on to complete the final project, new learning, arts, and athletic opportunities would not be possible for our students!
Our mission to love others and develop hearts for service is a long-standing tradition for MPCS staff and students. We are grateful for how staff and families consistently share generosity by serving our community at home and abroad.
MPCS families continue to build on their tradition of financial generosity. With record-breaking participation in the Annual Fund, as well as supporting our parent organizations and funding special projects, we are thankful for your ongoing commitment to MPCS!
MPCS has several pre-established endowments for scholarships and facilities. As a forward-thinking goal of the MPCS "Elevate" Strategic Plan, we will be focusing on raising the endowment to new heights.
With God's guidance to ensure the long-term sustainability of our current campus and master plan, we are seeking missional partners. Please inquire for information.
New Campus Master Plan Unveiled
In the fall of 2021, MPCS embarked on a comprehensive and inclusive campus master planning process. Biblical stewardship of the MPCS campus and resources was central to the approach. MPCS enlisted TVS Design, Koons Environmental Design, and UDS Development Services (all involved in the Murray Innovation Center project) to facilitate the planning process for the next 20-year campus plan.
Equipped with stakeholder feedback and a facilities assessment, the project team developed plan concepts and recommended future campus projects. God's direction and provision will be sought as the new master plan serves as a guide for future decisions and the further development of our beautiful campus.
Dining Room Renovation Coming Soon
In the summer of 2024, MPCS will embark on a capital project to remedy the aging kitchen and overcrowding in our dining room. Originally built to serve 1,100, the dining area now serves nearly 1,500 students and staff on a daily basis. The project will include new equipment, proper storage, and washing station to implement reusable serveware, thus being more environmentally friendly. Additional lines and new finishes and seating will streamline and maximize the space so that larger division levels can eat together.
Renovations will be funded in part by budget reserves and mostly by key donors and stakeholders. With a lead gift in place for this $2.5M project, we invite families and foundations to partner with us in this critical need to renovate the space to properly house and feed more students.
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
