Table of Contents Introduction 2 Memorial Administration Missions Classes ■ 1 ' . . t i m--m THAT HE MIGHT BE God’s message in this hour is perfect submis¬ sion and dependence on Him. He is preparing a body that will move when He moves — and God is moving! Amid all the complexities of Elim life, we must continue to abide in His love and walk in the light as disciples “fit for the Master’s use”...that He might be glorified. Elim is a mixture of unique personalities, ranging from flower children to preachers’ kids! Chosen by God, from thirty-two states and provinces, and as far away as Japan and Mexico, we came to Elim for the service of disciple- ship. Preparation is the controlling purpose of our ma¬ triculation, and the love of God is the constant reality in which we live and grow. His ultimate desire is to fashion holy vessels to manifest His glory. Thus, Elim becomes a melting pot for the grace of God to purify our hearts. As a patient Refiner and Master Craftsman, the Lord re¬ moves the dross and moulds us into His image, perfecting us “unto every good work”. While undergoing such divine surgery, we rest our souls in His unchanging love. Sometimes His scalpel cuts deep, making us squirm, but we are confident that “all things work together for good”. We learn to respond to His deal¬ ings as obedient children, giving thanks to the Father in all things. 4 GLORIFIED 5 Bound for Africa, our beloved teacher, counselor, and dean of men will be leaving the Elim campus at the close of this school year to serve the Lord for a third term on the mission field. After graduating from Elim, class of 1956, “Brother Jo” pioneered the Calvary Gospel Church of Meshoppen, Pennsylvania. Then he left for the mission field with his wife Gloria, also an Elim grad of 1956, to labor in Kenya, Africa, for ten years. Working with the All Nations Gospel Church, he established it as an evan¬ gelistic center, co-founded the Nairobi Pentecostal Bible College, and ministered to the hearts of hungry Africans. Since 1969 he has given his very soul to the growth and development of the Elim student body. Beside working on a degree in African history, and teaching classes here at Elim, he keeps busy helping the student council and counseling us on all our various problems and hang-ups. Brother Johansson has been a strong pillar in the Elim fellowship and we are deeply sorry to see him leave. Yet we rejoice with him for the call of God and the burning desire of his heart is for the African people. God has just recently opened the door to Ethiopia and we are believ¬ ing with our brother that He is confirming His Word that “Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.” Psalm 68:31. JOHANSSON FAMILY: Marcia, Mark, Gloria and Paul. Dedicated To Paul Johansson 6 In Memory Of Ivan Q. Spencer 1888-1970 “The calling of God is not necessarily to be a minister or a missionary, but the call of God for you is unto God Himself, first of all. Elim is for your preparation to fulfill that call.” This statement made by Elim’s founder, Ivan Q. Spencer, to his beloved students provides the key to the dedication of his entire life. In 1923 God placed the vision for the training of young people for the last hour ministry in Ivan Q. Spencer’s heart. Since then, the late Bro. Spencer watched Elim change from glory to glory — and from Endwell, N.Y. to Red Creek to Hornell. A fresh tide of revival caused Elim again to outgrow its facilities and in 1951 the Elim family moved to its pres¬ ent campus at Lima, N.Y. — which was formerly the Genesee Wesleyan Seminary dating back to 1832 in the days of the great Finney Revivals in that area. It was most appropriate that “Dad” Spencer’s dedication to “revival” ministry and training be continued in such a setting. In 1969 and 1970 God spoke to Elim’s founder concern¬ ing the revival we are now experiencing. During the last months of his life, “Dad” Spencer again felt the burden of the Lord to expand. Marveling at the faithfulness of God who caused His servant, Ivan Q. Spencer, to view so clearly what was ahead, Elim built... Ivan Q Spencer Memorial Auditorium This multi-purpose structure houses an auditorium seat¬ ing 1,200, a nursery, audio-visual facilities and a 23- room dormitory on the ground floor. Due to an overflow student enrollment of 205 in Septem¬ ber ’71, our hearts were filled with praise to God for His timing in providing facilities that His purpose might be accomplished in the maximum number of lives. A fulfillment of a vision? Yes. But even more — the be¬ ginning of a fuller vision and expectation of God’s pres¬ ence to mould and train lives for service, until “the knowledge of the glory of the Lord shall fill all the earth.” GUIDED, WITH MERCY Administration ADMINISTRATION shepherds of our souls BOARD OF ADMINISTRATION AND DIRECTORS: (Standing) David Edwards, Hugh Seager, Lloyd Moulton, (Sitting) Elden Mudge, Andrew Spencer, Helen Craven, Carlton Spencer, Elizabeth Spencer, James Powers.

God is faithful to give us “pastors according to His heart”. His grace is daily manifested by those whom He has ordained as leaders among us. The desire of our ad¬ ministration, that the glory of God be revealed in us, stems from the heart of our Lord. And the only road to glory is mercy. Freshman orientation: we can remember the feelings of fear and trepidation when faced with ' the strict social regulations and heavy academic requirements. But soon we discover the divine principle of life: “except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone, but if it die, it beareth much fruit”. At Elim, death becomes the way of life. We learn to apply God’s mercy, die to our self-rule, and submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. When this truth is realized, streams of liberty flow through our souls, and we receive with joy and meekness the instruction, reproof,... and, yes, even the rules. The Elim faculty becomes a channel for God’s mercy.

I 18 GRO WING, IN GRA CE Student Life 19 Elim Life is Most of us came to Elim expecting to feast on a one- course diet of “soul” food! But the classroom is not every¬ thing; Elim serves a full course meal. The Word of God is our meat and the trimmings include dorm duties, work scholarships, and campus days! Sometimes it all tastes like elbow grease, but still it’s better than leeks and garlic! The united effort of the Elim family is the essential mode of operation in all school functions. Elim is not merely an academic institution, but we are a working, moving, growing expression of the body of Christ. The Elim ex¬ perience is centered in God’s Word, but not confined to it. Spirituality and practicality must go hand in hand. God calls us to spend time on our knees seeking His will, and then we find ourselves doing His will on our knees — scrubbing the floor! Maintenance crew learns the art of sidewalk laying. Ann Harbour practising the presence of God. 20 Newton Edwards lays bricks down at the new auditorium while Chuck Faro paints classroom window frames. When Mike Carlyon and Hannibal Melendez wash pots pans, watch out! Junior Class working on Campus Day. Elim Life is Study The foundation of truth is laid in the Freshman year with such courses as Bible Survey, Doctrine, and Worship and Prayer. Juniors study a deeper, more analytical curricu¬ lum including Romans, Pneumatology, and the Cross. This is a year of growth and development. We catch a vision of God’s will for our lives and begin to apply His grace in the perfecting of that purpose. In the Senior year, on the threshhold of further ministry, we dig deep into the more weighty Bible doctrines such as the Kingdom of God, Spiritual Gifts and End-Time Revelation. In this last year, we choose one of three courses in which to specialize: Ministry, Missionary, or Christian Education. Our Senior year is much more than just learning the nitty gritty of the Word. It is a year of commitment and challenge. We become open channels for God’s grace and glory to flow out to others. The Holy Spirit penetrates us with the Word of God and then re¬ veals Jesus Christ, the glory of God in us, to the outside world. Mary Francis Lydia study in remodeled library. Bro. Moulton goes over the plans for the new dormitory Mary Martin gets her head into the books. 22 is a weariness ot the tlesh Ecclesiastes 12:12 Carroll studies his doctrine assignment Elim Life is Prayer... We are the temple of God, and the glory of the sanctuary is prayer and worship. As the pressures of homework, exams, and other responsibilities begin to overwhelm us, we open the chapel doors of our hearts and God fills us with His glory. Prayer is the method, and praise is the mood of all issues of campus life. The burden of the Lord to our President is that Elim be a “house of prayer for all nations”. And the call of the Spirit this year has been intercessory prayer. In the midst of this fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit, we find that God is seeking worshippers and intercessors. America faces a crisis and God is looking for watchmen to inter¬ cede before His throne. On behalf of our nation, we have joined together in a twenty-four-hour-a-day prayer chain. As others catch the vision of the hour and pray, God will bring America to her knees once again. Faculty and students join in intercession for America. Prayer in anticipation of Student Ministry Sunday afternoon. Samuel Mwatha from Africa ...and Al Martyn from New Jersey exhort the student body. Freshman class prayers And a Little Fun.. There is a time to weep and a time to laugh , a time to pray and a time to play. We recognize the importance of a balanced life and find a release for our social needs as well as our spiritual needs. Many a lonely heart or hun¬ gry stomach will wander into the snack bar in search of a hamburger or co-ed to meet their needs. Young couples discover the romantic atmosphere of our newly finished student recreation room and join in a rousing game of ping pong, Chinese checkers, or maybe just get better acquainted. The excitement of Friday night basketball games provides a healthy workout for both players and cheering section. School outings at Letchworth State Park give us a chance to retire from our studies, relax, and enjoy God’s creation — climaxing in a time of fellowship and singing. A picnic at Niagara Falls, tobogganing at Mendon Ponds, or just an evening of fun, help to unite the class in joy and love. Social highlights of the year are the Thanksgiving Day dinner, Christmas party, and Junior-Senior banquet. M Letchworth State P a rk Diane Leon Bob Clark enjoy God’s first book.

Doors are opening all over the foreign field; the Iron Curtain is being penetrated; and the Bam¬ boo Curtain of China is ready to collapse. For centuries the church has failed to keep pace in its missionary obli¬ gation, yet God is moving today and preparing a Body that will manifest Christ to all the world. Elim Missionary Assemblies acts as one of God’s many keys in unlocking these doors, and then sends forth men and women to walk through them. Challenged by the re¬ cent testimony of Brother Andrew and the call to disciple- ship in our Thanksgiving Missionary Convention, many of us look with anticipation to the harvest fields. In spite of advance in communication and transportation, the world perishes without Christ and without hope. Yet God’s method remains the same — the foolishness of preaching. May God help us to preach His Word. E.M.A. STAFF: Eva Leisups, Nancy Kling, Hayden Bennett, Sarah Bright.

New York City Is A Times Square, Greenwich Village, and the East Side can be just as dangerous as the jungles of darkest Africa — and just as lonely. Bound by the corruption of sin, sex, and “smack”, the hearts of half-dead, totally wasted in¬ dividuals are crying out for love and reality. “How shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach except they be sent?” Each term, Elim commissions a group of eager young evangelists, constrained by the love of Christ and com¬ pelled by the power of the Spirit, to the City to meet the needs of eight million people. Before long, we realize God’s real purpose in Elim City Training Center; He wants to reveal His power and providence to us in a “des¬ ert place” far-removed from the comfort and security of Elim’s “ivory towers”. Mission Field In Itself City Training is much more than an evangelistic center. It is a place of closely knit fellowship and intense per¬ sonal relationships. We learn to share each other’s joys, and bear one another’s burdens. For all of us, a term at E.C.T.C. is an unforgettable experience of the providence of God, bringing us to our knees in utter dependence on Him. As we daily exhaust ourselves in ministry to others, we find the key that unlocks His storehouse of abundant grace. Most of all, though, City Training is the home of our beloved friend and “father”, Dennis Hunt, with his wife, Joan, and two children. Located in “scenic” Bedford-Stuyvestant, Brooklyn, we live in two tenement houses with a “lovely” view of Dean St. Our neighbors are a lively bunch — prostitutes, pimps, junkies and rats. But in the midst of it all, we discover that Jesus Christ is still Lord, and He is reaching out to the poor in spirit. Kid’s Cave every Sunday morning. » 1 m . “m We attend classes each morning at the Methodist church on Dean St. The afternoon is spent doing work duties and holding outdoor children’s meetings. After dinner we meet for prayer in the Blue Room and then off to Man¬ hattan. With the two-edged sword in our hand and the Four Spiritual Laws in our mouth, we dare to lead a soul to Christ. In the darkness of Greenwich Village, we pre¬ sent Christ, the light of the world and in the East Side we challenge the existentialists with the existential reality of Jesus Christ. The Staten Island Ferry gives us a time to relax and sing the praises of God to a captive audience. And in Times Square, we have an open-air pulpit to de¬ liver the gospel to a collective congregation of drunks, prostitutes, businessmen, hippies, and tourists. After an eventful evening in which almost anything can happen, we pile into our van and head back to the secur¬ ity of Dean St. — home away from home. We fall on our knees, not only in exhaustion, but in praise to our Lord Jesus for what He has done this evening, and claim His grace for the following day. es out the garbage Ken Lawson and Dave Martin dishwashing. 42 Mike Mulvaney, Cheri Talbot, Jim Orred and Paula Humphreys minister on Times Square.

Elim students travel hundreds of miles to churches and coffee houses all over New York and Pennsylvania bear¬ ing the Word of God, a song, or testimony. At the Mon¬ roe County Home, the Lord makes us a blessing to the aged and the lame, and we are blessed by their response. Whether it be to the toddlers’ class in Sunday school, or to the intellectuals at the University of Rochester, we preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

The same length of time that the twelve spent with the Master and that the converted Saul was re¬ strained in Arabia and Damascus! While learning and maturing processes continue all through life, God draws aside those whom He chooses for a period of initial development. We have had the joyous priv¬ ilege to share this time with you at Elim. While thinking of you and your coming new ven¬ tures in God, I was reminded of Paul’s words in I Corinthians 16:9 “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.” The door to your three years at Elim is about to close behind you. You cannot go back to relive them. What you have obtained in God or failed to appro¬ priate rests between you and God. But now before you there are open doors of opportunity. There is the open door into the Holiest. The Veil is rent. Access is yours. The Lord invites: “Draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith ...” Since we are commissioned to His harvest, we would be most unwise to attempt His work without receiving His approval and direction, for it is your desire “that He might be glorified.” Paul writing to the church in Corinth refers also to the open door for ministry — opportunities for ef¬ fectual work in Ephesus and on into Macedonia: open doors that made future planning unwise. What was true in Paul’s day is much more so today. “There’s never been a day like this day,” with the spiritual vacuum in the world together with the awakening which is so evident. Doors in every direc¬ tion are swinging open. The renewing of the Holy Spirit is breaking forth on the right hand and on the left. But there are never open doors without opposition. There is an opportunity in every difficulty and a dif¬ ficulty in every opportunity. We all face them. How they are faced explains why some fail (or settle for less) and others succeed. Some hear the call, respond with an “Amen!” They face the open door and then discover the many adversaries. Hesitation comes and delay, and the door is not en¬ tered. You have heard the Master’s call and have felt the urge; you dare not succumb to adversaries, obstacles and difficulties. With Bishop Heber we raise the question and face the open doors: “Can we, whose souls are lighted with wisdom from on high, Can we to men benighted the lamp of life deny? Salvation! Oh salvation! The joyful sound pro¬ claim, Til each remotest nation has learned Messiah’s name. Conflicts there will always be. The Christian service life involves conflict. There is The Gospel that chal¬ lenges to conflict. Soldiers arise! Put your armor on! “The Lord reigneth!” Let us join Him — through the open door before us — “That He might be glorified”!

" LOOKING UNTO JESUS " With the seed of truth planted in our hearts, we came to Elim and immersed ourselves in the rich¬ es of God’s Word. Study, prayer and the appli¬ cation of His Word, created a desire in our hearts to learn more of the depths of wisdom and knowl¬ edge in God. We go forth, aware that the seed with which we entered school has taken root and grown un¬ der the careful and concerned cultivation of the anointed teaching we have been so privileged to receive. We continue “looking unto Jesus,” will¬ ing to obey His voice. Then, as His disciples, we go forth with confidence in His spoken word. 59 SENIORS DONALD BANACH West Islip, N. Y.

Evans ASSISTANT PASTOR: Joseph E. Nettleton PASTORS: Rev. John Gimenez Rev. Anne N. Gimenez 640 Kempsville Road Virginia Beach, Virginia 23462 (703) 497-0911 Rev. John Gimenez, converted in 1963, immediately became in¬ volved in the ministry, attending Elim Bible Institute at Lima, New York. Anne Gimenez, a native of Corpus Christi, Texas, where she began her ministry some 20 years ago, has ministered extensively throughout the United States. While traveling through the Tidewater area, John and Anne were asked to hold services in a vacant church at 3101 Lens Avenue in Norfolk. From the first, God, mightily-blessed, filled the church. Thus was the Rock Church formed in October, 1968. During 1970, ground was broken in the Kempsville area of Vir¬ ginia Beach for the new church which was entered in May of 1971, debt-free. Rock Church doesn ' t have an active membership. It is run on the basis of fellowship. The church offers an inter-denominational plan of worship for those who seek to know God and come to worship Him fn spirit and truth. We are where we are today through faith. We invite you to join us in worship. Upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 24-Hour Towing Service — Phone Honeoye Falls 624-3078 CORBY’S COLLISION AUTO PAINTING • BODY WORK • WRECKS REPAIRED Route 15-A, Between Honeoye Falls and Lima Honeoye Falls, N.
