  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...




A Day at a Time: Grateful

By Scott Harrup
Sept. 12, 2010

Through the generations, our family has grown a debt of thanks to Assemblies of God colleges. My grandmother was an alumna of Central Bible Institute (now Central Bible College) in Springfield, Mo. My parents met while attending South-Eastern Bible College (now Southeastern University) in Lakeland, Fla. My wife and I met at Evangel College (now Evangel University) in Springfield, Mo. This is our daughter’s first semester at Evangel. Numerous aunts, uncles and cousins have also attended AG schools.

As the above name changes illustrate, AG higher education continues to follow a path of steady advancement through the years. Assemblies of God colleges and universities offer a spectrum of degrees that can undergird a host of ministry and career choices. The charted outline of degree options on pages 14-17 demonstrates that scope. Opportunities for distance learning, continuing education and graduate degrees expand each year.

Far more important than refining a “college” or “university” identity, however, all member institutions of the Assemblies of God higher education community rely upon and desire the guidance of God’s Spirit. This spiritual dynamic isn’t limited to chapel services, but impacts classroom sessions, dorm life and extracurricular activities as well. Years spent at an Assemblies of God college or university nurture students in their faith even as they excel academically.

The three students featured this week demonstrate that kind of godly focus. They met with our staff before joining summer missions teams traveling across Europe for ministry. They, and the thousands of other students on our campuses, are already helping to build a vibrant worldwide Assemblies of God Fellowship for the 21st century.

If you are considering a college or university for a student in your family, or for yourself, give prayerful consideration to the information offered in the following pages.

Perhaps college has no connection with your life right now. Then, file this Evangel in your Bible or prayer journal and commit to pray for our schools and students. Partner with this Fellowship in preparing another generation of Christ-following world-changers.
