Pinecrest Bible Training Center

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.

Fall 1992

Dear Friends

This is a personal letter to each one of you who appreciate receiving the Banner and who pray for, and financially support this ministry.

I receive several ministry letters from ministries about whom I know nothing. If I did, I am sure I would have a greater interest in their ministry.

With this in mind, I will share a few things about myself and Pinecrest. During 1943 in an Army camp, I made a commitment to the Lord to go in the ministry if I lived through the war. I graduated from Bible School in 1959 and was led by the Lord to Pinecrest, then a Bible Institute operated by the Italian branch of the Assemblies of God.

While at Pinecrest in the Fall of 1959, I received a very unusual visitation from the Lord in which I received an impartation of spiritual truth for the end times. Also, I came to understand that I would teach this at Pinecrest.

This school closed in the spring of 1962, and the property was vacant until, in1968, I received permission to open a school at Pinecrest from the present owner, Pat Robertson. Later, I was given the deed to the property and the present ministry of Pinecrest became a reality.

This Fall, we began our 25th year of operation. This issue of the Banner is the 44th. Some of you have received the Banner from the beginning. Many have received it for a shorter time as names are constantly being removed, or added.

It is my prayerful desire that the Banner be "The Voice of One Crying in the wilderness" of our day. The Banner is a "spiritual life" teaching Journal with a "present word" that is true to the Written Word, for those who are spiritually hungry and desire to go beyond their present spiritual experience.

Your interest and financial support of this ministry makes it possible to continue. Without this support, it would be impossible to do so. Thus, we are dependent upon the response of those who receive the Banner.

Thank you for your continued interest an support. I appreciate each letter that I receive.


In His Eternal Love,

Wade E Taylor
