Affirming Asbury’s commitment to Christ-centered community life, a donor — who requested not to be named — approached Asbury with a proposal to fund a University guest house to primarily service out-of-town visitors. To be called Windsor Manor — a name with special significance for the donor — the house is to be yet another avenue for Christian community, hospitality and fellowship at Asbury University.

Asbury University celebrated the completion of Windsor Manor during a dedication and consecration ceremony on Oct. 26.

“Biblical hospitality is one of the truest ways to tangibly demonstrate our love for others,” said Asbury President Sandra C. Gray. The property is on the east side of Jewell Road, .25 miles from the Luce Physical Activities Center.

The guesthouse includes a great room, library, sun parlor, kitchen and dining rooms, breakfast nook, business lounge and second–floor observatory. The building also features many architectural details of spiritual significance and it is decorated with generous gifts of historical antiques and art that will inspire conversations about missions, ministry service and travel.

Windsor manor extends hospitality through four Global Guest Suites honoring Asburians who have exemplified the University’s mission of world-wide ministry and impact.

  • The Africa Suite honors the ministry of Dr. George ‘42 and Willouise Butts ‘42 Luce, who worked with World Gospel Mission in Burundi, Africa (1948-1953).
  • The Asia Suite honors Drs. J.B. ‘55 and Bette Shipps ‘53 Crouse, whose rich ministry included the presidency of One Mission Society (J.B.) and teaching and leadership at Yonsei University College of Nursing in Seoul (Bette).
  • The India Suite honors E. Stanley Jones, class of 1907, who served as a missionary to India and was internationally recognized as a champion of reconciliation through Christ.
  • The South America Suite honors the ministry of Harold and Margaret Round ‘42 Brabon, who served with One Mission Society in Ecuador and Colombia for more than 50 years.
