Part of the requirement for the graduates-to-be is to give a little testimony about how they came to the Lord and what the bible school has meant to them during the past three years. Below, we have each graduate giving a 5-7 minute testimonial.
As with anything that has to do with the Lord, worship is involved. The next two pictures are of Matt Eggleston and his worship team.

The last picture is the Commencement Address given by Dr. Morgan Powell
of New Hope Glad Tidings Church. Pastor Powell's was about continuing in the Word and works of the Lord. Dr. Powell encouraged each student to "not give up" and to "never let the word can't become a part of your vocabulary."
All-in-all I had a great time. I got to meet some new people and reacquaint myself with some old friends. I hope that you enjoyed this as much as I have. Thank you and God bless.
Good morning everyone. Sorry for being absent lately. Here is a rundown of some of the things going on in my life at this time. As you well know graduation season is among us and i wanted to share with you some pictures of the ceremony i was a part of two weeks ago.
We are in Parksburg, Pa. Home to Maranatha Full Gospel Bible Institute. Christ's Chapel is where we
will be having our ceremony.
In the blue robes we have Deb and Mitch Miller who are in their second year of course studies. The gentleman in the white robe is Skye Rogers, a soon to be 3 year graduate.
Next we have Jeffrey and Tonia Washington, husband & wife. One of the many pleasures of this schooling is the encouragement we get from seeing so many couples taking courses together and establishing that godly foundation within the home.
Colby and I are taking post graduate courses.
Together we took The Great Commission, but
Colby decided to take another course
Paracletes, the Study of the Holy Spirit. Intense!!
I continue to take courses and i love meeting other students of the Word from our neighbors to the south. Parksburg is about 2 1/2 hours from us here in Hazleton. Soo we have to travel a good way to be a part of what the Lord is doing.
Well, that is just part one. Part two will detail more of what went on and the theme involved.
