Text from Pages 1 - 128 of the 1973 volume:

“Give me a hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen; such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven on earth.” —John Wesley 1 to count the cost, to pay the price, to be molded into the image of Christ, whether it be through trials, rebukes, praise, exhortations, defeats, victories.

Sister Marion Meloon continues to lead us forward by her God-given vision and her God-given ability to make that vision plain in writing and by personal example. He who reads her life-walk may catch the same vision and by faith, run. In addition to publishing Elim’s bi¬ monthly paper, The Bell Tower, and pre¬ paring the Elim material for World MAP Digest, Sister Meloon is presently compil¬ ing a history of Elim. Not only has she pioneered in writing, but Sister Meloon has also participated in pioneering an As¬ sembly of God church in Lancaster, New Hampshire. A graduate of North wood Bible School in Narrows, N. H., Sister Meloon taught there and also at the New England Bible Institute in Framingham, Mass. A missionary trip to Jamaica, sec¬ retary-bookkeeping for ten years, and teaching seventeen different Bible-relat¬ ed subjects — many at Elim — add to her rich experience. To you, Sister Marion Meloon, who have assisted Elim’s yearbook staff for the sixth year, we dedicate this annual. We anticipate great things for you from God in the years to come in causing His vision to be made plain to all nations. -- ADMINISTRATION And I will give you leaders after my own heart, who will guide you with wisdom and understanding.

Brother Carlton Spencer manifests his union with the risen Christ in all he says and does. He is a man in authority because he is so obviously under God’s authority. That he is a man of God-given vision is proven by the dynamic growth of our school under his direction. His vision, which is worldwide in scope, and the in¬ fluence of his ministry, will be multiplied many times over in us who have been blessed to know him. How often he has made himself our servant - his servant-heart shown when he helped with dishes in the school kitchen, or trimmed the grass on the front lawn. How often he counsels us as a father with his arm encircling. Or we see him come from behind and hug someone in the lunch line, or flash his quick cheerful smile and stop to talk when he doesn’t really have time. He has earned our deepest love and re¬ spect, and we are continually challeng¬ ed by his example.

Elim Fellowship Serves Prospective Leaders Kinshasa, Tauranga, Barranca-ber- meja, St. Louis — these and many more are names that recur in the Elim Fellowship office — our Mis¬ sions Office on campus. Accurate rec¬ ords and receipting processes, trips to counsel with and encourage pas¬ tors and pioneer workers, preparing packages for mailing overseas, semi¬ nars for missionaries and national pastors overseas are among the con¬ tinuing responsibilities of “Elim Fel¬ lowship — a Christ-centered world¬ wide revival fellowship.” Preparation for leadership is not all concluded within the confines of Bible School life. The individuals in¬ volved — and they are deeply in¬ volved — in the ministry through Elim Fellowship stand ready to as¬ sist in whatever way possible the continued “leadership development” to which God calls His ministers. 32 LEFT: Missionary Convention finds Costa Deir in African attire praising the Lord with his tambourine.

Love Constrains God’s Ambassadors As Bud Sickler — missionary to Kenya, Africa — portrayed the glo¬ rious vision of reaching the whole world with the gospel, God’s love began to constrain students and visitors alike at the Missionary Convention to encompass all nations in prayer and in service. Emphasis rested on evangelizing and discipling the world in this generation. If people can travel as quickly as they do, communicate efficiently through complex forms of wires and mass media available to all, and expand their private enterprises with the wealth of this nation, it is also possible to reach ev¬ ery person in the world for Jesus Christ. Missionaries today are entering into other men’s labors and are harvesting what others have sown. George Lindsay, Bill Wilson, Costa Deir, and others including fac¬ ulty shared their experiences in laboring with God on the mission field. With stretched-out hands the entire audience prayed for God’s ambassa¬ dors located in many countries. Costa Deir spoke of God’s need for three types of men: Those who will exercise authority over spiritual forces; Those who will intercede; Those who will boldly preach the Word. Bill Wilson concluded the convention with the word from Isaiah 41:10: “Fear not,... I will strengthen thee, I will help thee.” God’s right hand enables His servants to go make disciples, teaching all nations. Lining the tabernacle walls were colorful and graphic displays of each of the six student prayer groups. Maps of construction paper “stretched across miles” from the lighted factual chart on Africa to the slides and pictures of the Pacific Islands, to the curios and costumed mannequins of Latin America. 1 | Jesus Christ is the “Pioneer of our salvation” (Heb. 2:10, Moffatt), made perfect through sufferings, even tasting death for every man. No one but the very Son of God could have pioneered in this area of our sal¬ vation, for He alone could satisfy the Father’s heart. But the day of pioneers is still with us, and the young missionary recruit looks to the Pioneer of all pio¬ neers for his example. The question arises: Is my con¬ cept of pioneering, God’s concept? Can I, too, delight to do God’s will no matter where it takes me, no matter what the cost, with the one thought of a mission com¬ pleted and accepted in His sight? Eva Butler, sister of President Carlton Spencer, is such a pioneer. It all began in 1960 when God started dealing with her about going to the nomadic Masai tribesmen of west¬ ern Kenya. The Masai are noted for their diet of milk and blood, and for warring over cattle, which are their livelihood. The young men live by themselves near the rivers and eat the cattle they steal. After five years of patient waiting, God’s time ar¬ rived to see the beginning of fulfillment of her vision for the Masai. Having spied out the land with other missionaries on a safari into Masai country, Eva Butler settled into a 13x15 foot wood frame, metal roof house at Mashuuru. In the past seven years on the field, many churches have been established in the villages stretch¬ ing for hundreds of miles across western Kenya. The Lord opened a way into the hearts of the youth of the Masai tribe, the “Morani”. In seeking rapport with these fierce warriors, Eva declares: “God is my strength and my fear is gone. I am truly safe among them with His protection.’ i nr The Day of Pioneers is Still With Us! Eva Butler is the “mother” of many of these young men from the Masai tribe. Their salvation is a sovereign act of God and He, knowing all things, has chosen young men who have grand potential for leadership, once they give themselves to the Lord. One such youth is Gaddiel Nkarrabali, (pictured at far left with Moses and Dan¬ iel) who has taken the dangerous step of leaving the tribal customs to attend Bible School, in preparation for ministry among the Masai. Now thirty years of age, Gaddiel is full of the Spir¬ it, with an exceptional anointing and call of God on his life. Upon graduating in November 1971, Gaddiel said, “I must preach the Gospel.” Three years before, Gaddiel had made his first commitment to serve God. He and five other warriors were eating a goat’s leg roasted and boiled over the fire in the forest when Eva and three Christian young men came by and joined them. After prayer Eva inquired, “Who of you would like to go to Bible School?” Up went his hand and Gaddiel said, “I will.” Gaddiel grew in the Lord at Bible School and on term breaks became a real testimony at home, where he was chief of his village of 30 to 50 warriors. Upon finishing school, Gaddiel sought the Lord for his next step. The Lord burdened him for the school boys in the government primary school in Mashuuru where he now pastors. Gaddiel is a man of few words, yet is a real wor¬ shipper with a depth in his heart that is not common. Here is an African youth who, though once in bondage to Masai customs antagonistic to righteousness, is now trained in the Word and in the Spirit, equipped to serve Christ for end-time harvest. Is the Need for Pioneers Finished? “The Peace Corps are willing to live meagerly, with the bare necessities of life, while generally new missionary recruits are not ready to face this kind of life. Perhaps the fault lies with us older missionaries. The emphasis in recent years is “To the cities, To the cities” — primarily to reach the better qualified na¬ tional who in turn can take the Gospel back to his people. Which is true. Yet with this emphasis it would seem that the pioneering spirit has waxed dim. Some say, “The bush is nice to visit, but to live in, ‘NO’! The city for me!” However, most all of the experienced, practical missionaries who now reveal such fine qualities of leadership in their work in the cities, spent their first years of crucial training in out-of-the-way spots. There are still the out-backs. There are still the distant peoples where the full Gospel, the power of God, and salvation for the whole man have not gone. Qualifications for such a life are: (1) A willingness to be what God wants me to be, where He wants me to be, and when. (2) A readiness to make myself happy and content in every circum¬ stance and good work. (3) A spiritual-practical outlook, i.e., to have an increasing relationship with Christ, yet be ready for the everyday menial tasks, such as cooking, sewing, cleaning, administering first aid, digging, building, repairing automobiles, being father, mother, teacher, advisor — al¬ ways in the Spirit of Christ, always serving — with preaching the last of all! At Often back-country life is 20-40 years behind what most youth of today know. For the pioneer missionary there may be no telephone, no electricity, running water, nor transportation, etc., etc., etc. Still, life is what we make it, wherever God calls us to live and minister. “Godliness with contentment is great gain.” And there can be a thrill in the most menial task working with Him. WHO IS READY for this opportunity for a life of great adventure, to work under the banner of our Great Captain ? Let us look out at the vast harvest that remains to be reaped in the unreached, un¬ explored areas and answer this challenge, “THE DAY OF PIONEERS IS STILL WITH US.” Students Called to Pray Within the full schedule of student activities, Elim allocates special time for missions every Thursday. Each student chooses to involve himself in one of six different prayer groups for the entire year. The purpose of mis¬ sionary prayer groups is several fold: to keep alive the Great Commission in the hearts of the students, to de¬ velop student leadership and individual participation in missions, to encourage students to discover God’s spe¬ cific purpose for their lives, and to support in prayer His laborers located all over the world. Below and on the following pages are listed the former Elim students and teachers who have given themselves to missionary service; pictured with the lists are those student groups who have given themselves to prayer for those areas. -AFRICA- KENYA: Bud and Fay Sickler; Alma Lind; Eva Butler; Irvin Schwandt; John and Jennie Maxwell; Bill and Juanita Foy; Frank and Pam Davis; Kath¬ erine Gray; Olive McLeod; Harold and Ernestine Malone; Erastus Otieno; Clara Rhines; Elizabeth Ridenour; Dawn Roherty; LeRoy and Shirley Davis; James and Evelyn Johnson; Carolyn Jones; Jerry and Ann Lout; George and June Lindsay; Philip and Starlene Harman.

Elim Gospel Church is most commonly thought of as a “student church”; a ministry whose purpose is a place of worship for the Elim campus family. It is just such a concept that we are now seeking to correct. Within a seven-mile radius of Lima there is a population of well over 15,000. This discovery along with the revelation of the fact that even Spirit-filled people within the area think of the church as simply for the campus family has resulted in a new thrust into the community. A mailing piece explaining the purpose of Elim Gospel Church has been sent to every home within the seven-mile radius (nearly 6,500) as well as an excellent tract entitled “We Are Your Neighbors.” Also every effort has been made to create an atmosphere invit¬ ing for the whole family. Both nurseries, toddlers and infants, have been properly organized and staffed. Children’s church during the sermon is now a regular part of morning worship. Wednesday mid¬ week service which was non-existent previously, is now functioning as a “Family Night” service. Graded teaching sessions are provided for virtually every age group in the family from children to adults. A Sunday morning choir adds great blessing to that service, while a teen choir has caused the evening service to take on new life. Many of the campus youth now prefer to stay at Elim Gospel rather than going off campus for church. This is new! The dent made in the community is only slight. However, Elim Gospel Church is looking forward to a great harvest in their Jerusa¬ lem. ■P r Empty Hearts Find Jesus In New York City Jesus Christ demands that His leaders depend on nothing but Himself. Elim City Train¬ ing Center in Brooklyn causes the Bible school student to come to grips with such a com¬ mand. Students visit churches, hold street meetings, witness on college campuses, and minister love to children who have never known compassion. Masses of people with empty faces and emptier hearts crowd the sub¬ ways and jam the streets. It is the privilege of E.C.T.C. — whether at Wall Street, Times Square, or Brooklyn College — to be a lamp with the oil and flame of the Holy Spirit. To minister life in New York City, the student must depend on God only, not upon his own strength, knowledge, or ability. In the end, he decides that he will defend and proclaim noth¬ ing but that reality which is Jesus Christ. ' V Sold by SEARS, ROEBUCK AND CO. Chicejo III, 60607 ond SIMPSONS-SEARS LIMITED, Tore !

Outstation assignments range from once-a-term musical groups requested for special Sun¬ day night services by pastors of various churches, to coffee-house ministries Friday and Saturday nights, which require strong consistent leadership. In scheduling ministry assignments, the out¬ station committee — composed of a few students from each class, with Brother Johansson as advisor — con¬ siders not only those areas of ministry with which the student is already acquainted, but also those in which he needs more experience. Calls for diversity of ministry from Bible school students come from Churches and Sunday Schools, County Homes and Convalescent Homes, Coffee-Houses and Universi¬ ties, Public Schools and other civic organizations. Outstations do not simply fill the demand for Christian workers. Rather, the aim is long range — within a period of three years to expose the student to a variety of ministries, so that he is able to func¬ tion effectively in many of them. Working in a team of six or more students develops and strengthens leadership, promotes cooperation, and allows the in¬ dividual to find the area of service for which he is most suited. In these last days God needs minute men who will be equipped to operate at a moment’s notice, in any situation, under any circumstances, and for as long as it takes to accomplish His divine purpose. To Make Ourselves an Example Unto You To Follow Us. II Thess. 3:9. ACTIVITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS Choir Reaches Out in Ministry More than drums and guitars make Elim’s choir warm and exciting. Under Brother Stuart Dahl’s direc¬ tion, the members are encouraged to come together in the unity of God’s love. Walking by the dining room be¬ tween 9:15 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. on a Sunday morning, one sees the choir in worship, in prayer for one another, and in prayer for the morning service. An hour is set aside on Monday and Saturday nights to practice songs for the Sunday service and for special occasions, such as Mis¬ sionary Convention or the Christmas Cantata. Open to all who attend Elim Gospel Church, the choir helps to bring students and non-students together as a family. In addition to ministering in song, the choir is a vital instrument in leading the congregation in wor¬ ship and into an awareness of the presence of God. Be¬ yond the doors of the Elim Gospel Church this group reaches, even to the Catholic Church in Lima for a Sun¬ day morning mass and to the other town assemblies all participating in the Christmas Community Musicale held in the Ivan Spencer Tabernacle. A twelve member ensemble, known as the traveling choir, extends the outreach of Elim’s ministry during Easter vacation as they go to New York City, the north¬ eastern states, and Canada.

' SW ' Oasis Staffers Coordinate Minds and Energies Some with little knowledge in making yearbooks, others with a great deal of past experience, and all with a rich experience in God — a group of twenty students joined together to produce the Oasis. They came together with the same vision: to portray a glimpse of God’s proc¬ ess of making leaders. It is this vision that kept them to¬ gether through the pressures of deadlines, publisher’s requirements, and the absolute necessity of clear com¬ munication. As the photographers cased the campus for exciting shots, the copy staff searched out information for their assignments. Each layout member carefully arranged his pages. Cooperating, giving, taking, brainstorming, laugh¬ ing, sighing — all kept producing with enthusiasm and determination as the editors encouraged them daily. Together the staff produced a record highlighting God’s preparation of leaders for His kingdom. The value of such a project was effected in shaping the staff into a working unit of the student body. Each worker knew what it was to be under authority and at the same time to exercise authority. As the group poured onto paper all of what God is molding into the lives here at Elim, they received a portion of that fashioning themselves. The vi¬ sion of the book is realized in provoking others to aspire to that leadership desired by God. TOP: Lou Fowler, Lay-out editor; Kathleen Lawrence, Copy editor.

' ll 1 sv ■ r Bw Student Council Acts As Liaison Just one of the many vital segments of the Elim body, the Student Council desires to under¬ stand in a greater way what God purposes for Elim, and to lead out in that direction. Dependent on the stimulus, correction, and support of the whole of Elim’s student and administrative bodies, the Student Council endeavors to work together with each of them in realizing one another’s func¬ tions and needs; moving corporately and in love into God’s program. This year the Student Council planned activ¬ ities and improved facilities for student recreation and fellowship, settled students’ class status, and promoted greater fellowship with other Christian colleges. Three class representatives traveled to Nyack College to attend the American Association of Evangelical Students Workshop. With God’s help and the school’s backing, the Student Council can act as a catalyst for a grow¬ ing unity and interdependence between the stu¬ dents and the administration.

VWlUtHWt Married Students Fellowship Once a month more than forty married couples, in which the hus¬ band or wife or both are students, meet for fellowship. Student lead¬ ers, this year Ricke and Debbie Harris, make arrangements for the meetings and also for the spring and fall picnics. Brother Vernice Smith assists the married students, who comprise about twenty per cent of the student body, as Dean of Married Students. Talents Used In New Ways Cr A new kind of reality flowed into the Old Testament Scriptures in Brother Tom Dickinson’s Old Testament His¬ tory class. Under the leadership of Steve Flewelling, twelve juniors performed “The Conquest of Canaan” near the pond in back of the tabernacle. Dressed in old Elim drapes, the students portrayed the reactions the Israelites may have had in the time of Joshua. Directed by George Fowler, the seniors led the Elim family into the “spirit of Christmas” with a play showing two sides of the Christmas season. Contrasted to the hilarity of the nine-foot snowman was a contemporary scene of the birth of Jesus and a serious home situation of a “hippie.” Such expressions of joy and sadness caused the viewers to find the real significance of Christmas in Jesus Christ. 57 Juniors and Seniors Table at His Banqueting Behold My Glory posit ioned above a life-size Ark of the Covenant held the attention of those at¬ tending the Junior-Senior Banquet. This Ark of the Covenant complemented the senior class verse: “And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given them; that they may be one as we are one.” — John 17:22. It rested at one end of the banquet hall in the Brighton Presbyterian Church where the banquet was held. Special music initiated the program with Sister Brockway at the piano. A junior quartet sang “The Choice is Mine”; and a senior quartet, “By This Shall All Men Know” — the class song. Several stu¬ dents performed Euripedes’ drama Everyman as ar¬ ranged by Marietta Cesternino and Loraine Hann. Once again directing the attention of the students to behold the glory of God, Rev. Malcolm Smith key¬ noted the evening with his message “Come to Jesus.” Seniors Remember Skip-Weekend 72... ... backing down an exit ramp, only to have their five-car caravan stopped by the police. ...crawling up and down iced-over steps and walkways in Watkins Glen. ... seeing who could go the farthest on the all-weather toboggan slide at Pine Brook. ... “drowning” one another in the row boats. ... bowling, swimming, playing base¬ ball. ... fellowshipping in the evening meet¬ ings, especially Brother Trudell’s message on the ten virgins and oil: “giving place to the ministry of the Holy Spirit, so being ready with oil at His coming”. Oiuft. :■ •5- V % Former Students Welcome Seniors One hundred sixty former students enjoyed the “Scandinavian Holiday” decor of the annual Elim Former Students’ Association Spring Banquet held at the Honeoye Falls Central School. It was a time of refreshing, reuniting, and reviewing the past year’s events, sharing God’s blessings, dealings, and glimps¬ es of the future. Forrest Dodge, missionary to Colombia, South America, brought a message of “Living the Life”, followed with prayer for the seniors by Mom Spen¬ cer. In the annual business meeting, the E.F.S.A?ers decided to continue their project of improvement and repairs on College Hall. This project includes expanding the library and repairing classrooms for use. “The Choralaires,” under direction of Evelyn Connor, provided music for the occasion. Unforgetta¬ ble was Ernest TruOblood’s solo part in “To God Be the Glory.” Signifying unity, the candlelight ceremony be¬ gan with one lit candle. Then each senior lit his candle from it. The ceremony was also a reminder that “we are the light of the world.” Having wel¬ comed the graduating class into fellowship with open arms, the banquet ended in a note of praise. ) Twenty two Become One... That the World May Know $ Joy and anxiety filled the main auditorium as the third graduation ceremony held in the I. Q. Spencer Tabernacle began. Twenty two seniors marched in to “Crown Him With Many Crowns.” “By This Shall All Men Know” was sung by the senior class. Including the seniors who were po¬ sitioned in the middle of the group to form a cross, the traditional student body choir sang “The King Is Coming”. Valedictorian Dianne Srigley spoke on “Know¬ ing the Word of Life”, and salutatorian Phil Smith addressed the audience with “Praise to Christ as Lord.” Rev. Dennis Hunt, director of Elim City Training Center, used the life example of Lazarus to bring out the senior class theme, “One,...

Christ’s bonds, Sincerely, President Carlton Spencer Nairobi, Kenya January 20, 1973 Dear Members of Elim’s Class of ’73: Sincerest greetings in the name of our Lord! These two weeks that I’ve been away from Elim have been fruitful ones, filled with evidences of the Spirit’s guidance—and the prayer support of all of you at home. Today is a full day: this morning conferring with leaders of the church of our Lord here in Kenya, and this afternoon and evening sharing in the dedication of a lovely new Bible School facility which will ac¬ commodate 75 young men! It is a day of rejoicing for the many who have helped to make this possible. Among them are Paul and Gloria Johansson, Elim grads and now on Elim staff, who first had the vision for it. We wish it were possible for them to be here for the occasion! I’ve been meditating on Paul’s exhortation to Timothy, “Take heed unto thyself and unto the doctrine; continue in them; for in doing this thfu shalt both save thyself and them thattfiear thee.” I Tim. 4:16. ‘aul says, in effect, that the acceptable workertmust first give intention to his own relation§hips, to his God and the out¬ growing relltipnship with his fellowmen. This can be all-too- fasfy |orgotteh in the press of fffcreasing ministerial activities.
