Welch College

President’s Report

J. Matthew Pinson P r e s i de n t

A Transformational Mission As I write these words, we have just experienced Commencement exercises on the campus of Welch College. Watching these students walk across the stage to receive their degrees, and seeing the transformation of their lives as a result of their experience at Welch College, confirms why we are here: students. We are providing an excellent spiritual learning environment where they find their place in God’s world and are equipped to fulfill their callings.

One of those graduates, Beth Cyrus, gave a senior testimony at Commencement. In her remarks, she spoke of her life being transformed by her experience at Welch college: “The theme that kept recurring was that of striving for excellence—a concept I was familiar with, but in a different context. I always strove for excellence out of a desire to be complimented—to make others proud of me. But this idea of striving for excellence as an act of worship to God, in absolutely every area of life— this was all new to me.” Beth went on to share: “The innate pulse of our college mission and environment has been a catalyst of spiritual maturity in me. . . . The genuine model of Christian community that our college exemplifies has taught me to humble myself to the service of others—to be committed, graceful, and ultimately subservient to the ministry of Christ. . . . I am tremendously humbled by all that I have learned and experienced in the past five years and pray that God would use the education I have received to equip me as an instrument of His glory.”

This transformation is not unique to Beth. It is common to our graduates, and it gives us the resolve we need to continue, even in the midst of the challenges of a difficult economy, to fulfill our mission, “to educate leaders to serve Christ, His Church, and His world through biblical thought and life.”

A Promising Future

new website, welch.edu. Our first new website in a decade, the welch.edu site is aesthetically attractive and userfriendly and will aid us in recruiting students and promoting the college.

Working Toward Relocation Perhaps the most exciting development at Welch College is the process of campus relocation. In 2008 we purchased a 66-acre campus site in the bustling Hendersonville-Gallatin area of Greater Nashville. Then the Great Recession and flat-lining of the Nashville real estate market stalled our plans for selling the West End campus.

The future is challenging, yet promising. Our alumni, churches, and supporters have enthusiastically rallied behind our new name. We believe our new name will open more new doors of opportunity for us in the future— something that will be crucial in a . . . we are moving forward time of increasing competitiveness this fall, offering our in a sluggish first-ever online bachelor’s economic environment.

campus sale, having sold Ennis Hall, the Cook Building, the Missionary-inResidence Home, and the President’s Home (that means that my family is temporarily living in off-campus housing until we complete the sale and build our new campus). The funds from the sale of these homes have been used to pay down debt and will all go toward relocation. With our new realtors in place and with the Nashville real estate market beginning to recover, more buyers are interested in the West End campus than ever. Pray with us that God will make the campus sale as fast and smooth as possible, enabling us to move forward

with the dream of campus relocation, as we continue to fulfill our mission for God’s glory and the extension of His Kingdom.

The Pension Crisis It is becoming more and more expensive to offer a Welch College education. This increased expense has been caused by the worst economy since the Great Depression and unprecedented costs for the college. Most of these expenses were triggered by new government-imposed rules on our pension plan. As a result of adverse market conditions, in 2006 the federal

government changed the regulations for organizations with traditional pension plans. These changes took effect in 2008. Welch College had one of these old-fashioned pension plans, instituted more than 50 years ago. This change in federal regulations required the college to pay more than $850,000 in unexpected pension expenses over five years in an attempt to bring the pension plan to fullyfunded status—over $850,000 in unanticipated cash expenses! In addition to these extra cash expenses, the college has had to borrow more than $2.3 million to

Welch College • PAGE 5 • 2013 Annual Report


terminate the pension. Not knowing what the market would do or what further changes governmental regulators might make, we ended the plan, distributing retirement funds to pension plan participants. This brings the total pension-related debt to more than $3 million since 2008. All this came on top of the turbulent economy we and other ministries face. More detailed information about this crisis is available in a brochure at welch.edu/ pensioncrisis. In short, the college had no source of funding for this astronomical, unexpected expense. This came at

a time when small denominational Bible colleges across the country are struggling because of decreased giving, and more and more students are staying home to attend lower-cost state schools. Now more than ever, we need your help to erase this deficit. This will allow us to hold down tuition costs and give more scholarships to students who have answered God’s call but cannot afford to attend Welch College. We will be able to help them find their place in God’s kingdom and give them tools to fulfill that calling.

Please be assured that Welch College is ever mindful of being a good steward of the funds you give to this ministry. We have diligently cut expenses and are recognized for our conservative and responsible financial practices both by our peers and accrediting agencies.

A Challenging Economy Despite the financial challenges of a turbulent economy, intensified by the pension crisis, the college began turning the corner financially this past year. Thanks to stabilized enrollment income from tuition, room and board, increased general fund gifts, and a

financial recovery. (For more detailed financial information, please see the complete Financial Report at welch.edu/2013FinancialReport.

Challenging Times This is significant after having to borrow $215,000 and $965,000 to operate in the two previous fiscal years, respectively. Still, we will show a deficit on the books, owing in large part to the pension difficulties and the fact that the above-mentioned estate gift was booked in the 2011-12 fiscal year. We are thankful that we have “stopped the bleeding” in cash flows. We commend our faculty and staff for their role in the judicious spending cuts that have helped make this possible. Other signs that we have turned a corner are that the college: • Stabilized income from tuition, room, and board, increasing fulltime equivalent enrollment by 3%. • Exceeded our annual (general) fund gift goal, raising more than ever in the history of the college! • Sold properties, paid down debt, and placed funds in cash reserves designated for future relocation. • Reduced our debt/liabilities by more than $1 million. Thank you for standing with Welch College through these lean years of economic stress. Pray for us as we continue to turn the corner toward full

Our out-of-state and non-ministry student enrollment has declined during the economic downturn, whereas our Tennessee and ministry enrollment have remained stable. This picture fits exactly with what experts such as Moody’s Investors Service, Noel-Levitz, and Stevens Strategy have said the past four years, and continue to say, with regard to the enrollment challenges

...many more students are opting for lower-cost, at-home community colleges rather than going off to school. that the current economy poses to small, private, less-competitive, tuition-dependent, low-endowment institutions. Even before the economic downturn, our primary competition was community and local state colleges (about 85% of Free Will Baptist college students attend them). This was demonstrated by the survey NoelLevitz conducted five years ago of

students who had inquired about Welch College but did not enroll. Since that time, many more students are opting for lower-cost, at-home community colleges rather than going off to school. The research shows that this is primarily financially driven. Over the past four years, the Moody’s Investors Service Higher Education Outlook has explained why schools like ours are challenged in this economy and students are staying home for lower-cost options: Household net worth has decreased sharply, and families are worried about job loss and other economic factors, thus mitigating the workability of “luxuries” like private college education. While some larger private Christian universities are maintaining enrollments, most enrollment growth is a result of the addition of adult, online, and graduate programs. This makes our offering of the online B.S. in General Christian Ministry starting this fall, our relationship with Capital Education, and our attempt to move toward graduate programs in ministry and education of strategic importance. It is sobering to read Moody’s “Characteristics Associated with a Negative Outlook.” It sounds just like us: • Moderately selective to non-selective institutions with a more regional student draw

Consider these facts about what we are facing at this time: •O  nly 12 percent of college students in the states we draw from leave their state to attend college. • N  ot more than 5 percent of college students attend Christian colleges. •O  nly 7 percent of the American population is in college. • I f Free Will Baptists are average in their higher education attendance, statistics show that we should have 630 students attending Christian colleges. • The total headcount of all Free Will Baptist colleges last fall was 695.

Building for the Future Despite the above challenges, Welch College is on the move forward in building its quality as a truly Christian community of faith and learning. •W  e continue to build a stellar faculty and staff who receive accolades from all over the evangelical community and are leaders in both the Christian and secular accreditation and professional agencies of which we are members.

This makes our attempt to move toward graduate programs in ministry and education of strategic importance.

• Higher education enrollment as a whole is in decline, and community colleges and online education are on the rise and competing more than ever for Free Will Baptist students. • David Kinnaman (the Barna Group) and other experts are lecturing to groups of Christian higher education professionals about the way the “young people leaving the church”

• W  e have a vibrant, spirituallycommitted student body that is alive for the Great Commission and its demands on their lives, whether they are called to a full-time church vocation or to be salt and light in the secular world. • O  ver the past few years, we have markedly increased our rates of freshmen retention, graduation, average ACT score, students in the top 25% of graduating class, etc., such that we are now comparable to larger universities with greater financial resources that have more competitive admissions policies. • Even though we cannot compete with such universities on the basis of their consumer appeal, marketing, facilities, etc., we stack up very competitively when it comes to our actual education and product.
