John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.-

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

Dear Friends

There are certain qualities that should mark a ministry that is truly of our Lord’s choosing and blessing.

The first is that any ministry or work must be established upon a firm foundation. This foundation must be built on solid rock—Our Lord Jesus Christ. All debris and rubble must have been removed. Such a building will be able to withstand any storm. A ministry that is built on the sand of man’s workings and abilities will fail in the test.

The next is that of the smile of God’s approval, or the approbation of God. Our chief end is to bring glory to our Lord. The door that Jesus knocks on is one of intimate fellowship and communion with Him. Our ministry must meet the approval of God’s abiding presence and blessing.

Jesus said that a life was to be known by its fruit. A work or ministry can be judged by what it produces—by the quality of the fruit in lives that abide under its branches.

I have diligently searched my heart as to how Pinecrest fits within these conditions. After much prayer and serious reflection, I feel a fresh and new confidence that we are on the right path. I have never felt the sense of our Lord’s direction, purpose, and presence as I do now. I am more than pleased at the large number of Pinecrest graduates actively serving our Lord and with the working of our Lord in our midst here.

I invite you to become an active part of this ministry. Your support is needed in prayer and in giving that lives may be brought through the process of His workings and made ready for the visitation of our Lord that is before us. It is my request and prayer that you will seek to actively do your part in support of Pinecrest. For all who are presently doing so, I extend my sincere thanks and prayers for His continued strength and blessing in your life and ministry.
