Fort Wayne Bible College has had
four presidents. Rev. l.E. Ramseyer
was the first president. "Daddy Ram-
seyer," as he was affectionately
called, was known for his great love
of the Bible. He had much to do with
the beginning of the Missionary
Church Association. Daddy Ramseyer
was president from 1912 until 1944.
Dr. Safara A. Witmer, the second
president, graduated from Fort
Wayne Training School. He spent
some time on horseback in Western
Canada, ministering in a rural area.
Witmer, known for his gift of teach-
ing which he exercised at the Bible
College, also had other interests.
Because of his interest in flying, a
course was initiated at the college,
but a near-fatal accident caused the
course to be dropped. Witmer served
as president from 1945 to 1957.
The third president, Dr. jared
Gerig, served the college from 1958
to 1971. Dr. Gerig also served as the
president of the Missionary Church
Association, president of the
National Association of Evangelicals,
and vice-president of the Accrediting
Association of Bible Colleges. When
some difficulty was experienced in
getting permission to build on the
south campus of the college, it was
Dr. Gerig who succeeded in battling
the legal opposition.
Dr, Timothy Warner has served as
president since 1971. Known to his
students as "Dr. Tim," he is a Taylor
University graduate and received his
doctorate from Indiana University.
Dr. Tim has been the vice-president
and the president-elect of the Amer-
ica Association of Bible Colleges. Dr.
Tim, a familiar face around campus,
remains an active participant in stu-
dent activities. Often Dr. Tim has fas-
cinated the students with accounts of
his life as a missionary in Africa.”
