A Christian college in Arizona is turning down an offer for a free campus in Massachusetts.
The Christian owners of the historic 217-acre campus offered to give it to Grand Canyon University. The unoccupied campus was once the home of a school founded by 19th century evangelist D.L. Moody.
The family that owns the retail chain, Hobby Lobby, bought the property a few years ago and restored it. Their goal was to find a Christian college willing to use the campus for God's glory.
But Grand Canyon said it can no longer afford to accept the gift, citing an estimated $30 million in unanticipated infrastructure upgrades.
