lt was the early 1930's and the Great Depression stood ready to engulf Kansas City and all of America. Most considered it an unlikely, even foolish, time for anyone to consider new projects requiring financial support. Yet the four men meeting at the doctor's home shared a common concern. There was no Bible school to be found within 500 miles of Kansas City. Missouri. The burden had been the focal point of much prayer for many months. even years. Following considerable discussion, each of the four pro- duced a one dollar bill from his pocket and laid it on the table around which the group sat. The men shared a faith and expectation that God would multiply and bless the investment represented by those four one dollar bills. So began the Kansas City Bible Institute. The quartet consisted of three Kansas Citians -- Dr. Walter L. Wilson. Rev. David B. Bulkley. and Rev. R. Fuller Jaudon - plus Dr. D. J. Rolls of New Zealand. Dr. Wilson was named president and Dr. Rolls was installed as dean of the new school. On Tuesday morning. September 7. 1932, the doors of Kansas City Bible Institute were opened to six full-time day students. But evening studies offered a greater attraction and night school students swelled the total enrollment to 96 that first year. The KCBI campus consisted of a beauti- ful old mansion located at 426 Gladstone Boulevard. 52125 fhg 11111111111 .-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

The Grand Avenue Temple Building at Ninth Street and Grand Avenue provided office and classroom facilities. Dr. Wilson returned to the presidency of the college in 1938 when Dr. May resigned to answer God's call to a new ministry. The Keith and Perry Building at Ninth and Walnut became home for KCBC in 1939. and it remained the college's home for five years. Then came the decision for the college to go west -- one block. Campus number five was in the Ridge Building at 913 Main Street. But in 1945 the suburban community of Prairie Village, just across the state line in Kansas. offered something downtown Kansas City. Missouri. had failed to provide -- a long-awaited "permanent" campus. The former site of the Pembroke School for Boys at 75th Street and State Line Road became the sixth campus in the school's brief histo- ry. The four-plus acres with three large buildings. a sunken garden, and huge shade trees was undoubtedly a welcome sight following a decade in downtown office buildings. Bible instruction continued at the State Line location for the next twenty-one years.
