Ministry Focus Week

by ABI Admissions (10/9/2014)

We have stepped away from our regular schedule this week. We have split the Christian Ministry students and the Music students and have taken this week to focus on developing those ministries. Rev. Norman Paslay II has been leading our Christian Ministry students into a deeper understanding of what it takes to be a minister in today's day and age. With lessons like: "What Jezebel Hates", "Strongholds", "The Battlefield of the Church" and
"The Art of Communication," our Christian Ministry students have been equipped and inspired to reach this world.

The effectiveness of the teaching in this ministry focus week has already been felt in our daily chapel services. Our students have taken what has been given to them in class and added it to their sermons and testimonies, which has resulted in many tremendous sermons. One of our Junior ladies spoke about "Pearls in your Pain". She related our life experiences to that of an oyster, which grows a pearl because of an irritant. Some of our most valuable experiences and effective ministry tools begin in our lives as painful situations. Working from that thought and a from a lesson taught by Rev. Paslay, she related to us the value of hard circumstances, noting that the gate to heaven is a pearl. Maybe that is because one day when we walk through those gates, we will know that everything we have gone through has brought us to this point. Now, we can walk past the gate knowing all the pain and everything that was symbolic of it is behind us.

Flying the Gospel to the jungle

by ABI Admissions (10/9/2014)

The picture below perfectly captures what it means to be part of the ABI alumni network. Jonathan DeVall (left) and missionary to Brazil Rev. Bennie DeMerchant (right) are flying the Gospel all over the Amazon. Jonathan graduated in 2010 and Rev. Demerchant graduated in 1957. The alumni network stretches far and wide and opens many doors.

Jon is currently trying to raise his budget to go on a long-term AIM assignment. He intends to go full-time in the country of Brazil to assist Rev. Demerchant by flying both seaplanes all over the jungle as Rev. Demerchant has done for almost 60 years.

It is incredible to see a missions field that was established and dug out by an ABI graduate be able to continue through the efforts of another ABI graduate. We look forward to more incredible reports from Manaus and the jungle surrounding it.

Pastoral Counseling Class- Rev. Chapman

by ABI Admissions (9/23/2014)

"This could be a miracle moment; any moment can be a miracle moment." This was one of the many lessons Rev. Chapman left us after his last stint as an adjunct instructor. He spent the week with our upperclassmen giving them instruction in pastoral counseling. " We are not psychiatrists , we are not professional counselors; we are ministers, so counsel by ministering and get someone help if they need it ," was his mandate for the class. In a world that is faced with more mental illness and mental stress, a minster must be able to direct a person to professional help for matters that are beyond the realm of a minister's capabilities. Once that person has found professional help a minister comes alongside them to pray with them and helps guide them spiritually.

Our students enjoy having the always smiling Rev. Chapman around the halls of ABI. His quick wit and hearty laugh are always a welcome addition. We look forward to his return in the latter part of October.
