Church of Christ in Slaton Reopening

Brothers and sisters, this is one of our alumni, Curtis Baker, writing to us about the church in Slaton.  There have been two congregations there for some years, but the Division Street congregation grew old and few and gave the building to the other group.  This is the grand opening.  Perhaps you would like to join them on April 11 at 3 p.m. for their moving in.  I’m planning to go.  Let’s encourage them if we can.

Partnering in Interactive Videoconferencing

It is amazing to see our Executive Director, Truitt Adair (standing), and a classroom of students from the Quito School of Biblical Studies in Quito, Ecuador studying at the feet of Armando Alaniz from the Texas Gulf Coast Bible Institute in Houston, Texas!  Brother Alaniz, who taught at Sunset when I was a student in the late '80's teaches Spanish speaking students in the USA, Central America and South America from the classroom in Houston by interactive videoconferencing.  Armando can see the students and the students can see him and even ask questions in real time.  What an incredible way to spread the good news of the gospel of Jesus around the world!

Texas Gulf Coast Bible Institute - Year End Letter


December 5, 2008

Greetings from the Texas Gulf Coast Bible Institute!  Another year full of God’s blessing has passed rapidly.  We wanted to share some exciting highlights from the year.

Africa Mission Report 2 - Mark Samsill and College Hill in Malawi

Mark Samsill and I traveled to Malawi five years ago to visit native preachers supported by the College Hill congregation in North Richland Hills, Texas. Mark (pictured here preaching in Malawi with Brother Malik Ghambi interpreting for him) was one of the mission deacons at College Hill at the time, and is now one of the Shepherds there. We were so excited to see the work of the preachers in the Lakeshore area of Northern Malawi and in the city of Mzimba. They were faithfully preaching the Word of God in multiple congregations, planting new congregations, and were so evangelistic.  We encouraged them and were blessed to teach them. The only problem we saw was that these preachers were spread out among multiple congregations and doing all that was possible for them to do, and there was no one trained to assist them and no one being trained to take their place.

Class of 87 Howdy All

It is still an awesome prividlege to be part of a dream, that will never end.  In 1985, I rolled up to the office of the Sunset School of Preaching and spoke with Cline Paden.  He asked me one question, "why do you want to go to my school?"  At that time in my life, I wanted to know all I could about this man named Jesus.  I was not in a hurry to go anywhere, nor was I planning to anytime soon.

God's building at Legacy

Olivia and I were able to celebrate a huge milestone with the congregation here in Forth Worth. God has blessed the Legacy church of Christ with abundant growth and fruitfulness. Over the past 50 years this congregation has been growing and growing! This growth has forced them to add onto buildings, move locations, and build bigger facilities. Legacy was even forced to go to two services because it could not accommodate the whole congregation. This last Sunday morning was a change-- at the completion of its new auditorium, the whole congregation was able to meet together in its entirety.
