BOSTON (BP)--A Southern Baptist church in Boston celebrated its 25th anniversary March 5, but instead of receiving gifts from well-wishers, the church gave $200,000 to two Southern Baptist seminaries.
Each week the congregation of Berkland Baptist Church gathers in the auditorium of an Episcopal seminary near the campus of Harvard University for worship and prayer. The vibrant, mostly Asian-American church exists primarily to minister to students near the most liberal college campuses in the country, according to its founder and pastor, Paul Kim.

For that reason, the church has paid tuition for numerous students at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, and at most of the five campuses of Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary throughout the West.
