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.

While looking to the Lord in preparation for this article, the word "Faithful" stood out. We cannot but see great mile-stones of the FAITHFULNESS of God as we consider this past Summer. Our hearts rejoice with the reality of this.

The months since the last news letter have been filled with meaningful activities. The past SUMMER VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL TERM classes were the best ever. They ministered a spiritual strengthening, both in understanding the Word, and of God's ways. The SPIRITUAL HUNGER that was evident in all who came to Pinecrest during this time was greatly responsible for the richness of His Word, and for the high level of His presence and anointing in these Chapel services and classes.

During YOUTH WEEK in August, a large group of young people entered into all the Lord did within a week's time. A song that was especially anointed gives expression to what was in the hearts of the young and older alike during this time: "Light the fire in my soul; fan the flame, make me whole; Lord you know where I've been; so, light the fire in my heart again." It continues to be sung by the student body in the Bible School this Fall.

Also in August, the yearly FORMER STUDENT REUNION was a time for renewing longtime friendships, and for sharing the goodness of the Lord in the many varied life circumstances of all who came. Peter Newman from Hawaii was the speaker for the LABOR DAY CONVENTION. His messages spoke of "Foundational Qualities for Kingdom Living" that are necessary for an experience in the present reality of the Kingdom of God. This quality word, ministered with a depth of seriousness, stirred all who attended with a deepening desire to apply this Word to their lives.

The NEW SCHOOL YEAR began as though we had been together for a long time. The student body is larger than it has been for several years. We are prayerfully trusting the Lord to personally meet each student and bring them into an on-going personal relationship with Him.

Ric Vargas, from Long Island and Jay Francis from Albany, New York are the VISITING TEACHERS for the first school term. Bob Lake is the NEW PASTOR of the Campus Church. Steve Wilbur, who had taught at Pinecrest for many years is pastoring the Church in Atlanta Georgia that Pastor Bob vacated before coming to Pinecrest.

Registration for the SECOND QUARTER of Bible School is on November 9th. Jake Luffy from Pittsburgh, Pa; Ed Szumowshi from Wilmington, Del; and Joe Nieves from Allentown, Pa are the visiting pastors who will be teaching during this term of Bible School. This adds a rich level of pastoral experience to the teaching of the Word to the student body.

If the Lord is speaking to any of you to become a STUDENT for any one or more of these terms, THERE IS ROOM and we welcome you. All you need do is contact the registrar, Maurine Garrett, who has become a tremendous blessing to the Bible School.

Also, we have accommodations for SHORT TERM VISITORS who desire to come and sit in the Chapel services and classes. We encourage you to come.

Tom and Marsha Worth who have been a part of Pinecrest for many years will be in Bulgaria by the middle of October to open a Bible School. They ask your prayer support that all the necessary doors will open, and for wisdom in the outworking of the call the Lord has placed within them.

It is our prayerful desire that the FAITHFULNESS of our Lord will become an increasing reality within your spiritual experience through the ministry of the Banner to you.

Please remember to pray for PINECREST and for the outworking of all our Lord desires here on the campus. All of Pinecrest is a living example
