Former President Roger J. Andrus first joined
the Midwest Bible and Missionary Institute in
1946, having just graduated from Dallas Theologi-
cal Seminary with his Th.M. He progressed
through such positions as Registrar. Academic
Dean. and Executive Vice-President. In 1956 he
became the president of Midwest and led the col-
lege into the merger with Kansas City Bible Col-
lege. The merger was effected in the spring of
1961 by Dr. Andrus and Dr. Al Metzger, then
interim president of KCBC. Dr. Andrus continued
to lead Calvary as President during the move in
1966 to the 39th Street Campus until ill health
forced his resignation in the spring of 1973.
Dr. Andrus was honored on December 4. 1973.
when the Doctor of Divinity degree was conferred
upon him during a special convocation in the col-
lege chapel. Special recognition was also given
him at that time by the IFCA for his many years of
faithful service in the cause of Christ.
After leaving Calvary he went on to serve with
International Missions and then pastored the Com-
munity Bible Church in Omaha. Nebraska. until
Dr. Leslie Madison accepted a unanimous call to
Calvary Bible College on July 26. 1974. This fol-
lowed a time of real heart-searching and seeking
of God's will.
ln order to prepare for the ministry. he attended
Moody Bible Institute from 1947-1950. While sub-
sequently involved in a church-planting ministry in
Colorado he received his B.A. from Rockmont Bi-
ble College. He later attended Dallas Theological
Seminary, earning his Th.M. in 1960 and his Th.D.
in 1963. While studying at Dallas he started and
pastored the Northwest Bible Church in Fort
Worth. Texas. for the twelve years prior to his
coming to C.B.C.
