ABC Prepares to Welcome the Class of 2011 to Cincinnati
As we embark on our twelfth class at Ambassador Bible Center, there is an air of excitement in anticipation of the 27 students arriving at the home office, the location of the Ambassador Bible Center, for the start of the 2010-2011 school year on Monday, August 23.
We are busily preparing for the new students with name tags, name labels on their mail boxes and refurbishing supplies. Faculty members are busily preparing their course outlines and getting their notes in order with additional study to bring out the best in their lectures.
This year we welcome two new instructors. Mr. Darris McNeely, a member of the Council of Elders, presenter on Beyond Today and Pastor of the Indianapolis and Fort Wayne congregations has taught some sections of classes in the past, but will now share Doctrines 1 and 2 with Mr. Randy Stiver. Mr. Stiver is also no stranger to ABC as he has presented lectures in public speaking several times. Mr. Stiver pastors the Columbus and Cambridge, Ohio, congregations. We welcome both of them to the Faculty of ABC.
Another new addition to ABC is the serving of breakfast and lunch to the students each ABC day. Ms. Ina McLemore heads up the Food Services Department under the operation of Financial Services. Mrs. Kathy de Campos has rejoined the ABC administrative staff as administrative assistant and is responsible for much of the physical preparations and upkeep of the ABC areas. We welcome her back!
Over four hundred students have been through ABC and this year will put us beyond four hundred fifty. The average age this year is 22 and several students of this year’s class already hold undergraduate degrees. Two have masters’ degrees.
We solicit your prayers for the students to have a vibrant year of learning the Scriptures and learning how to live by and build solid, godly character.
