The McCollough Theological Seminary education building has been reconstructed and fully renovated a few times. The latest renovation is strikingly beautiful and a splendid example of the Madison signature and style. The education building stands majestically adjacent to the House of Prayer in the "Church Hill" section of Virginia's capital city (Richmond). The campus houses a fully furnished and self-sufficient institution which has been designed to accommodate the needs of its faculty, staff and students. Included in the education wing is administrative offices, conference rooms, a student lounge, a study hall, two faculty dorms, faculty kitchenette and lounge, Dean's quarters, a student library, computer lab, a supply room, a chapel, a cafeteria with a built-in snack bar, and classrooms.
Within the walls of the original building can be found the newly renovated sanctuary, which is simply breath-taking. This building also houses the Dean's office, two student dorms, a multi-purpose room, laundry facility, additional classrooms, and a fitness center.
The interior and exterior of both buildings are fully handicap accessible. On-site parking is also available.
