Hobby Lobby Finally Gives Away Moody's Free Campus

Campus in Northfield, Massachusetts, given to America's largest Christian foundation.

Hobby Lobby has found a new recipient for its gift of a free 217-acre college campus in Massachusetts: the largest Christian grant-making organization in America.

The National Christian Foundation (NCF) will take over ownership of the historic campus founded by D. L. Moody and continue the search for a suitable Christian institution to occupy it.

CT previously reported how Hobby Lobby awarded Grand Canyon University with the free campus, but the college backed out after deciding the campus was too expensive to operate. Hobby Lobby has been offering the free campus since a proposed C.S. Lewis College failed to raise enough funds to occupy it.

CT has reported how donations have recently surged to the NCF and other foundations as wealthy Christians favor such tools for family funds.
