Bible Instructor Field Trip

A report from our Bible Instructor courses at Washington Missionary College.

By the Ministry staff. 

Twenty of the students enrolled in the two-year and four-year Bible instructor courses at Washington Missionary College attended the evangelistic meetings at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for the week end of November 19 to 22. The meetings are under the direction of George E. Vandeman. Ben Glanzer is assisting with the music. Miss Mary Walsh and Miss Mary Penrod are the Bible instructors. Students, under the direction of Miss Maybelle Vandermark, teacher in the Bible and homiletics department at Washington Missionary College, were there to observe the Friday night and Sunday night meetings and to attend a special program dealing with the qualifications and responsibilities of the Bible instructor, which was arranged and presented on Sabbath afternoon. Sabbath morning the girls attended the Pittsburgh number I church. Saturday night several went visiting with one of the Bible instructors, others helped with a Junior Missionary Volunteer service in one of the churches. They were present at the regular workers' prayer service just prior to the Sunday night meeting. The over-all experience did much to build up morale and a feeling of professional spirit among these students. Their enthusiasm has had a contagious effect among the students on the campus since their return.
