The Kansas-Nebraska Baptist Builders’ project in Burlington, Kan., has been rescheduled, and the main work will start on Monday, May 16.

Plans called for a small team to begin laying out the project starting on Tuesday, May 10.

Touchton is an electrical contractor from Pittsburg, Kan., and is a member of Trinity Baptist Church there.

Burlington will be the fourth project for Kansas-Nebraska Baptist Builders. The group launched in 2010 and wired the new additions at Sublette Southern Baptist Church, Sublette, Kan., and Southern Baptist Church of Syracuse, Kan.

After working on the projects in Western Kansas, Baptist Builders worked on the new chapel at Midwestern Seminary, Kansas City, Mo., for two weeks in October 2010.

At the seminary, Baptist Builders worked on hooking up the HVAC systems and tackled other highly skilled tasks, such as wiring three-phase electrical panels.

The group received high praise for the work at the seminary. Leighton Clemons of Missouri Baptist Builders was in charge of electrical installation at the seminary.

During the recent national Baptist Builders Roundtable, Clemons told Touchton that Kansas-Nebraska Baptist Builders “was the neatest and most professional with the electrical installation than any group that came to do electrical work” at the seminary.

“This compliment goes to all of you,” Touchton said in an e-mail to Baptist Builders volunteers. “It is the result of your hard work, your good planning, your great bends of conduit, following the electrical plan and doing a great job!”
