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.

Dear Reader,

Pinecrest continues to struggle with its ability to support itself. A ministry such as this cannot support itself, apart from help from others.

The Bible School and Conferences require a large physical plant and staff to support these ministries. The income from these is not able to cover the cost of operation. However, the spiritual growth and development in lives is outstanding, along with the students being prepared for Christian service.

With this in view, the Banner is sent as a ministry to those who are spiritually hungry and desire to better know our Lord. In return, we prayerfully trust that those who are ministered to by the Banner will respond in support of the ministry of Pinecrest.

Many who receive the Banner are graciously responding with financial support on a regular basis, and the load is becoming lighter, but there is a present urgent need for an increase in gifts received.

If you are being fed and nourished by the Banner, would you prayerfully consider becoming a supporter of this ministry? Lives are being changed and needs met. I truly believe that the ministry of Pinecrest is an investment in the Kingdom that is worthy of your consideration.

We do not have a final cost figure for the new septic system, but if it is within the range we expect, we have received over one half the amount that will be needed. I am prayerfully trusting that those who have not responded to the special letter will yet consider this urgent need.

We are experiencing a marvelous move of the Holy Spirit in our classes and meetings. There is a very evident working of the Lord within the lives of those who come to Pinecrest and I am told by many that their lives have been forever changed.

I am looking forward to many years of faithful service to the Body of Christ at Pinecrest, and to the Banner being an increasing blessing to each one who receives it. Your prayers, interest, and participation in this ministry are coveted.

It is my prayer that this issue of the Banner will be a blessing and encouragement to you.

May our Lord bless you,

Wade E Taylor
