Within the silence of his noble frame, there burns an eternal fire of
devotion to God and the preservation of His truths.
His steadfastness in the face of opposition - his encouragement
through the hours of disappointment, and, always, his quiet humility in the light of
victory - have been to us all an example of Christian fortitude and love.
Few know of the instrumental part he has played in the foundation of
our school and our ideals, fewer still have given their applause - so with greatest
respect and admiration, we gratefully dedicate the 1973 TO RCH BEARER to. . .

a message fnom the pnesioent
Mrs. Billy James Hargis
Dr. Billy James Hargis
Greetings in the name of our Risen Lord, Jesus Christ!
Words fail to express the gratitude l feel in my heart for the students attending American
Christian College who display leadership ability, for our staff of dedicated administrators and
professorsg and especially for our family of supporters across the United States. We must never
betray our God-given responsibility to preach the Gospel - the death, burial, and resurrection of
Christ - and to defend America which we believe is God's greatest nation under the Living Son!
We fail our Lord far too often but He is ever ready to forgive our human mistakes and errors
in judgment. However, we could never forgive ourselves nor expect understanding from our
Heavenly Father if we betray our Divine calling of standing in the gap for God and country during
these troublesome times. We recognize our goal as a Divine responsibility to save America and not
contribute to its destruction.
We will get out of life what we put into it. If we're willing to make the sacrifice and follow
that "inner voice of Divinity" without compromise, we will indeed accomplish much towards saving
this Christian American Republic. We must ever look to Jesus as the "Author and Finisher of our
Faith." We must make ourselves available to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit
for great things. We must think along the lines of greatness and achievement for the glory of God
and for the preservation of the American dream. Ours is a great challenge. We are more than
conquerors through Christ. We shall realize all of our stated goals if we but keep our eyes on Christ
and keep alive the obsession that God has chosen us as leaders.
Rev. David A. Noebel
"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a Workman that needeth not to be ashamed
rightly dividing the word of truth." lll Timothy 2:15l
Although many times students feel there is little scriptural admonition to study, Pau'l's
advice to Timothy is simple and instructive. We are to study to be ready always to give an answer to
every man that asks us for a reason of the hope that is within us, with meekness and fear. ll Peter
As Christian young people, I believe God would have us to be well-rounded emotionally,
socially, physically, and spiritually to meet the challenges and opportunities of the day.
The world is sick in many ways, but especially spiritually sick. Our souls have to be fed on
God's Word and ways to meet this vast, challenging, problem.
Therefore as Christian students, we should buy the time, wisdom, and knowledge the Lord
has provided in instruction, such as American Christian College, in order to be part ofthe answer
to the world's ills, instead of part of the problem.
"Don't let the excitement of being young cause you to forget about your Creator. Honor
Him in your youth before the evil years come, when you'll no longer enjoy living." lEcclesiastes

We, the students of American Christian College
greatly rejoice this year because of our beautiful
experiences with Jesus Christ. The divine call which
leads students to A.C.C. resulted in a spark of
enthusiasm and joy which brought each of us closer to
the Lord and each other.
We are grateful to our parents, friends, and
supporters for their earnest prayers, for we realize that
prayer not only changes things, but individuals. We read
in James 5:16... "The effectual fervent prayer of a
righteous man avails much."
Recognition of the presence of Jesus Christ was
emphasized above all else in every activity of American
Christian College this year. Colossians 3:17 was the
guideline in which we proceeded . . . "and whatever ye
do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God and the Father by Him."
On November 17, 1972 the past president of the
student body, Ray Shockey, encouraged us to maintain
the family spirit and continuing fellowshipping through
prayer, for and with the administration, faculty, and
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES - Paul Sher

Our Christ-centered activities this year started
with an unforgettable Love Story. We went to a Passion
Play in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, which portrayed the
atonement of our Lord and Savior, through his death,
burial, and resurrection.
The Thanksgiving Banquet was a blessing to each
of us Dr. Hargis reported on our missionary work
around the world. His final note was expressed so
beautifully as recorded in I Thessalonians 5:18. . . "ln
everything give thanks for this is the will of God in
Christ concerning you."
ln order for the college to expand next fall, we
were in need of three new buildings. In the endeavor to
get them, the student body pulled together in Spirit and
in Truth. A 24 hour prayer vigil was organized and the
students continue to pray that God answered our
prayers and we now have three new beautiful buildings.

LaFoIlette, Charlie Hart, Shirley Davis, Tom Powers, Wes Dunbar, Dave Dock, Dave Nebergall, Karen Nelson, Terry
Linsteadt, Dave Angel, Paul Sherman, Elden Smith.
We had a rewarding year, the outreach to others
was a never ending task. Visiting nursing homes, local
churches, and an endless number of things increased our
love for the priceless gift of Jesus Christ and a deeper
communion with one another.
Spring being the time for DBBUTY and the lovelier
things in life, the student body continued their trend of
singing and witnessing for our Precious Redeemer. We
participated in a Salvation Army function where we
presented the joy and love of Christ to a countless
number of families.
On behalf of the student body officers and the
entire student body of American Christian College, I
want to thank our President, Dr. Hargis, Vice-President,
Reverend Noebelg Dean, Dr. Grow, and all of the
members of the staff and faculty for their love and
devotion which will help us become better servants for
our master. We pray that we will be able to forever abide
by the principles you have taught us.
God has blessed us with a beautiful year.
Love in Christ,

"A L!:AMERIC AN" i IDS
The "All-American Kids," American Christian College's concert choir, has had another busy and
This year, the twenty-four students chosen for the cast of the "All-American Kids" were awarded full
scholarships, including room, board and tuition.
Our first two weeks in September were very, very busy. We had to tape four weeks of television
programs, there was a new tour program to learn, and we had a new cast. About half of the cast was in the
All-American Kids for the second year and three for the third year. Our first tour started September 15,
and lasted a week. We began in Louisiana, traveled into Texas, then returned for performances in
Oklahoma. Our crowds were small but we gained many new friends. Dick lVlacKeen was our chaperone for
As soon as we returned we started learning many new songs for our television program and our weekly
singing on Sunday at the Church of the Christian Crusade.
Local performances for civic and church groups provided us with a new outreach this year. We sang
special patriotic and Christmas programs for women's clubs, Kiwanis, Lions, and American Legion Posts.
We even had the opportunity to sing at the Appreciation Dinner for retiring Congressman Page Belcher.
These local efforts provided a way for us to let the people of Tulsa and surrounding communities know
about our new college.
After a short Christmas vacation with family and friends, the All-American Kids returned to Tulsa to
begin a month-long, Coast-to-Coast tour. We started in St. Louis, Missouri, worked our way to Florida
through snow, ice, bus trouble, mud and more bus trouble. From Florida we headed west, stopping in
Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, Arizona, and California. Our only stop on the way back to Tulsa was in New
Nlexico. There were many, many new learning experiences on this tour, and so many people were so nice to
us in so many ways. They took us into their homes, planned special banquets, and befriended us in
countless other ways.
lt left us all tired but . . . most of all . . .thankful for God's many blessings and care on our long tour.
lVlr. and Nlrs. Billy Opie were our chaperones for this tour.
Once again we were back to work as individual students . . . plus television taping sessions, singing at
many local civic and church meetings, learning new music, singing in Church on Sunday . . .and studying
for tests somewhere in between.
A remote television crew came to our campus for three days in February and we filmed a "special"
television show, as well as our regular weekly programs, thru April. F
A new effort to acquaint people in our five-state area with American Christian College started in March.
Every Thursday and Friday evening we put on our two-hour musical in towns within a 200 mile radius of
Tulsa. The crowds were not as big as they had been in Indianapolis or Phoenix or some of our stops in
California but we were pleased with the interest shown in the college and the many new friends to whom
we were able to present "our" message.
Our job as "the" part of American Christian College most observed by outsiders is not an easy one. But
in these days when our country is in such turmoil, we can only remain enthusiastic about our message:
"Christ is the hope of the World" and "America is God's greatest nation." It was discouraging at times, but
these experiences will stay with us through all of life, and we will never know until we see Christ face to
face how many lives were touched or led to Him through our efforts.
Yours in Christ

American Christian CoIlege's 1972-73 season embodied the school's first intercollegiate basketball endeavor.
These games were played with the expressed desire not only to increase the scope of the college's program but
to provide a more effective medium through which the gospel of salvation, available through Christ, could be
propagated. Among the more fulfilling aspects of the season was the opportunity afforded to each of the
players to serve as exemplary Christian youth.
The season's highlight was a second semester surge in which A.C.C. was victorious in three out of four
games. The team was surprisingly successful despite a lack of experienced players. The basis for an increasingly
rewarding effort has been well established.
