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 Friends,

The Banner is the ministry of Pinecrest that touches the lives of more people on a regular basis than any other ministry we are engaged in. I know that my father, Wade Taylor, takes a very special interest in every article that is included, and is careful to make sure that each issue provides an opportunity for our readers to be drawn to a closer personal relationship with our Lord. Dad is especially pleased when people write or talk with him about how they were blessed or helped by a particular article. It is often one of the first things he talks about when we are together.

Because we sincerely believe in the value of the message of intimacy with Christ, we desire each person on our mailing list to continue receiving these important devotionals. However, good stewardship requires us to remove those from the mailing list that we have not heard from in several years. This is the only way to be sure that we are mailing The Banner to people who are benefiting from its message.

There is no charge for The Banner, but we do have a suggested contribution of $10 per year to help us with the cost of printing and mailing. Some people give more than the minimum because they would like to help others receive the message as well. However, we have never removed anyone from the mailing list because they have not contributed. All we require is a note from you at least once per year saying that you are reading The Banner, and would like to continue receiving it. This will keep you on our active mailing list.

Of course, we are especially grateful to those who contribute to the cost of printing and mailing. Without your help, this publication would not be possible. There is no funding for the Banner, except from the contributions we receive.

If you have not written to us in the past year, would you please write today and express your interest in receiving The Banner? An envelope is enclosed for your convenience. We pray for our Lord’s blessing on your life as you continue to grow in fellowship with Him!


Yours in His service,

Ronald L. Taylor,
