Another BJU Entity is Up For Sale–This Time it’s Shepherd’s Care

Continuing a pattern that’s been ongoing for several years, BJU is looking to shed another of its “ministries”: this time, its Shepherd’s Care nursing home facility. According to a local Greenville source in the nursing home field, BJU is actively seeking a buyer for Shepherd’s Care in the Greenville area.

Interestingly, Greenville County lists a Bob Wood as the Care Of for Shepherd’s Care. BJU purchased the property in 2004 for $2,000,000, and it shows a current value of slightly less than that. BJU paid its 2013 taxes of $41,720.42 on the property less than two weeks ago.  It’s unknown what kind of sale price BJU would seek now.

Over the past year and a half, BJU has shed Soundforth, sold WMUU, outsourced its dining facilities, slashed its list of offered majors, and cut back on faculty/staff.

We’ll continue to update this blog if we hear of more BJU entities being sold.
