Memorial Park is committed to expanding our reach so we can serve our neighbors near and far. Throughout the years, we have been able to purchase five properties adjoining our MPC campus, which are now being used for various purposes. However, each of these properties has required a mortgage—each of which we have paid off prior to acquiring additional mortgages—which means we have been carrying a debt for a number of years. When the late Mac McCrum became elder emeritus in 2018, he expressed concern over carrying this perpetual debt for such a long period of time, and, as a former development professional, he had the expertise and vision to work with our leadership to plot a path towards debt freedom. Although Mac passed away before this plan could be fully implemented, his vision remains and has become the foundation for Mac’s Mission.
