zx Buckner opens Heritage and Learning Center


DALLAS – Buckner International opened its new Heritage and Learning Center Aug. 28, an interactive exhibit that celebrates the legacy of the ministry and provides opportunities for involvement today. The center reflects the organization’s


history since the events that led to its founding in 1879. Seeing the plight of children following the Civil War, R.C. Buckner started an orphans home in Dallas. Soon after, Buckner began minis- tering to senior adults as well. The center includes artifacts such as Buckner’s preaching Bible, documents,


historical items used daily on the campus, multimedia


presentations, interactive exhibits.


“Buckner has an amazing story,” said Scott Collins, Buckner vice president of communications. “The Heritage and Learn- ing Center provides a way for people to understand who Buckner is and what Buckner does. When they come here, we hope people are inspired by what has already taken place and take action themselves as part of the Buckner family.” The center leads people all the way up to the ministry’s current efforts and plans – such as Ventana by Buckner, a state-of- the-art senior living community scheduled to open in North Dallas in 2018. Additionally, center visitors have the opportunity to learn how they can plug


videos and


into Buckner ministry. Individuals can write notes for children who will receive a pair of shoes through Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls®


, the ministry’s largest


humanitarian aid effort, or write prayers and Bible passages on lumber that will be used to build a house in the Rio Grande Valley for vulnerable families. “Buckner has been blessed through the decades with a deep and rich history,” Col- lins said. “By looking back, we can clearly see God’s work through the ministry and be encouraged to know he will deliver on his promises for the ministry’s future.” The center is part of the reworking of the East Dallas Buckner campus that in- cludes a new R.C. Campbell Administra- tion Building, which provides office space for staff. –Staff report
