Early in the 20th Century, Mary Kendall, led her women's bible study group on a city wide revival with all denominations to help women and orphans. Today, the Adoption Program, located on the Owensboro Campus, still carries on with the original mission by helping families adopt children from around the world, as well as locally.

Plans are currently under way to build a new campus in Nicholasville, Kentucky.
