Thank you for your spiritual insights and most of all for being you. We dedicate our 1981 Vine to you, Professor Joe Thank you for your inspiration Understanding Instruction Friendship Counsel Honesty Model Love Snider Theme for the '81 Vine When deciding upon a theme for this year's Vine, we on the staff chose Luke 2:52 which contains four very basic elements of college life. What we found, however, is that these four elements are not cut and dried. Each overlaps into the next with each being dependent on the other. When examining these four elements as Christians, we must realize that none can be forsaken or exalted. Each has its place in forming the unique individual God intended. He grew in wisdom and in favor in stature Wm., God and man Luke 2 52 He grew in wisdom I ..- Jr' This year of study has flown by so quickly. Like Jesus in His youth, we too want to study to know the Father's word. Our professors teach us much and are patient and helpful, but it is each one of us in his own way that must bring his mind to bear upon the work before him: that of understanding the relationship between God's word and the world before us with all its millions of people. -'ig' 5 . . . and stature J5 n G. , A 52.5 3 x 'N Q: 'Era' 5, . ,, l ,. , f. 3 .

We too are listen- ing, praying, thinking, communing, wanting to live as a people loved of God and loving Him and walk- ing in His way. The chapels and dorm-wing meet- ings and prayer before classes and a hostof other influences guide us toward this goal. . . . and man. Jesus lived with people too. There were the crowds and there were the intimate friends. Two of the great blessings of our life here at college are the times we spend together at special events, in The Hollow, in the dorms, and in the cafeteriag and the times we spend with special friends. We do help one another, and listen to one another, and have fun together. Q . A-".: - 'Q- ,cull-f , 1- .Q . , ,.,.' ,. N 1 , ,. gr mt . V Q Wm . 1, :- .. 1 . ?xi 4, Q IN MEMORY OF . . . L Gary Edward Marsh -Oct. 31, 1949 to Feb. 18, 1981 Gary was the kind of person who took God at his word and challenged others to a life of prayer and obedience. On campus Gary pleaded for a revitalizing of spiritual life among us. He himself was a man of prayer and brought others into a life lived in His presence. As a student Gary had to put in long hours. His reading rate was low and he worked slowly through the course material. Those who knew his difficulties praised God with him for the remarkable grade average of his last semester, 3.85. During his brief life after graduation in 1980, Gary pas- tored a church in Frostburg, MD. His great concern was the winning of the lost around him. Even in his death he won many. And his work is not finished yet. We still hear his "l challenge you .... " James Richard Turner -Feb. 7, 1960 to Jan. 23, 1981 Jim was the kind of person who wanted the world around him to know the same Jesus that he knew. On campus he loved the people with whom he attended classes and didn't allow his loss of hair to interfere with meeting people and making everlasting friendships. His work at Krogers was an enjoyable part of his life. His co-workers knew there was something special about him, At church, Jim was a driving force in the youth group and basketball team. Whether he held a puppet ora basketball, he always gave his all to do his best. Jim's world held a special place for his family. He wanted more than anything in this world for his brothers and sisters to know Jesus Christ in the way that he did. Jim lived faithful to his Lord. He stands tall and straight in our memo- ries. j 1 I ACADEMICS Dr. Excerpts from the Inaugural Address, "Axheads, Fish Sandwiches, and Parchments". "The axhead did fIoat" CII Kings 6:67 Today we are not concerned with lost axheads, but we are distressed by men and women who are lost and with- out hope. Sin has a grip on the human race and everywhere there are cries for release. I personally have not seen an axhead float, but I have seen an alcoholic transformed into a whole per- son. I have seen the power of God flow into the life of a hardened criminal to make him a new man. I have seen a tribe of savage, primitive Auca Indians in South America changed into a gen- tle, peace-loving tribe devoted to sav- ing rather than killing .......................... The fact is that the disciples had little to share-only five loaves and two fish! The second priority as I see it is to be compassionate people. Bangla- desh and Cambodiag Appalachia and the inner-cityg migrant workers and ju- venile delinquentsg the lonely elderly and the prostitutesg form a parade that pass as in endless procession before our eyes. How do we react to the needs of these who crowd in on us in ever-increasing numbers? "When you come, bring the cloak which I left at Troas and the books, especially the parchments" tll Tim. 4:13J The third priority is an understanding of truth-God's truth. God has spoken. There are more copies of His Word in the hands of more people today than ever before. But mankind needs in- struction, and to teach effectively we must be diligent students of the Word ourselves. 14 Harvey F-I. Bostrom Accepts the Challenge of the Presidency 'N 'w . vw,- LEFT: On October 31, 1980, Dr. Harvey Bostrom was inaugurated as the fifth president of Fort Wayne Bible College. Dr. Bostrom comes to B.C. with a long history of Christian service to his credit. TOP: Ira Gerig and Dr. Ted Nickel prepare to participate in the opening prooessional along with many other familiar and visiting dignitaries. BOTTOM: Dale Ferrier, president of the Board of Governors, officially confers the office of President upon Dr. Bostrom. Paul had received a vigorous educa- tion under the personal tutelage of Ga- maliel. The Scriptures had formed the core of his studies. All that Paul did and said underscored his belief that the Eternal God had spoken authorita- tively. His education included a thor- ough study not only of God's message but also of man's interpretation and evaluation of it. A true scholar is characterized by an insatiable curiosity. Life is open-end- ed. Truth is as vast and comprehensive as is God Himself. Scholarship is a vi- gorous discipline. lt seldom is a com- fortable way of life. God has revealed Himself directly through the Scriptures and indirectly in all of the world that surrounds us. We have His promise that the Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth. But-What is truth? This question has echoed down through the centur- ies. Its expression has taken a variety of forms, and that question is more rel- evant today than ever in the history of mankind. The composite voice of the entire human race is calling for help in finding answers. We at Fort Wayne Bible College, faculty and students alike, must know what we believe and why we believe it. Of equal importance is the ability to express our thoughts and beliefs in ways that will communicate effective- ly. In short, like Paul, we need to identi- fy, conceptualize, and articulate truth for the people of our day. . . .and we can grow in our understand- ing of truth if we, as did the Apostle Paul, make books and parchments a part of our life. 15 Students Go Steady With Studies In-class-work and homework go hand-in-hand to pro- vide the student with the variety of lecture, lab work, library research, and personal reading and review so necessary to adequate learning. This intellectual exer- cise serves as a trying ground for newly acquired mate- rial, exposing old prejudices and bringing to light fresh vantage points. In order to actually absorb knowledge, it is not pas- sive acceptance that is required, but active interest in a subject, an attitude which involves the entire student. Such acquaintance of the student with organized work in thinking produces lasting discipline and character of the highest sort. ci.ockwlsE FROM ToP LEFT: chris i'ii ' Morgan and Julie Tyre plot the secret for- ' f ' VY mula in biology lab.

' 'aa Learning Can Be Fun Greek Class Strikes Again After weeks of long nights and im- possible assignments, special pro- jects and pranks are needed to relieve the pressure and anxiety which each students faces. The first year Greek class exhibits the right idea on a spring day by taking the entire class- room on a field trip. Arlan Birkey, hav- ing introduced the class session with a few non-ethnic jokes, proceeds to pre- sent the lesson of the day in record time lit got coldi, further proving the ancient law of thermos-dunamis. Re- member: "Wisdom taught her children humor so that they might bear the un- bearable." KHezekiah 5:19J L, Learning ls Fun A group of children provided a lively "lab" experience planned by Donna Watson for a class in developmental psychology. Lori Steiner gives her report that day in the midst of all the toys and balloons on "Witmer Street." The Children's Literature class, affectionately known as "kid- die-lit," is pictured with their creative projects, one of which was reported to have had the title "Rain makes applesauce" and was presented with samples of fresh applesauce. In the last picture you can see that a traveling celebrity paid a visit to Mr. Cartmel to wish him a happy birthday. X- .91-t 19 New Majors and Minors Added 'qv 'Quan--s Two new majors were added tothe cirriculum this year tBusiness Administration and Social Workj. Also thirteen minors were named and organized. These minors are in anthropology, Biblical languages, business administra- tion, camping, Christian counseling, church music, Chris- tian drama, missions, pastoral ministries, secretarial sci- ence, Christian social work, youth ministries, and broadcasting. Most of these minors were formed out of the existing courses, but for the minors in Christian counsel- ling, broadcasting, social service, and Christian drama, new courses have been added.

BELOW: Dr. Bostrom and Dr. Taylor. N l ff l A The Chair of World Mission has been made possible by a gift from Dr. Clyde Taylor. The aim of the Chair is to ensure an unfailing commitment of the college to world mission. The college has a significant record in preparing missionaries. It has also produced pastors and other church staff people who have kept the trust of the Lord's mandate for mission. Then there has been a wider seg- ment of graduates who in their homes and their churches have maintained the vision. This all must increase. The Chair will plan to gather at the college the best possible resources. lt will seek to minister to students and churches through a lectureship, workshops, media pro- grams, preaching and consultation. It should now be possi- ble to have more visits by church people from around the world. ln selecting the first lecturer, Dr. Vergil Gerber, we ob- tained a man who shares a background close to that of Dr. Taylor. Both have served in agencies of evangelical co- operation and think in an international perspective. 21 Fiecitals Don't Just Happen Recitals are a way of life, and woven into the fabric of a music major's very existence. One of the reasons for this emphasis is that music itself depends upon the pedormance ofit So stu- dents must be performers. The impres- sive list of musical events sponsored by the Department of Music through the year presses home this fact. In January Mrs. Judy Hakes Martin, pianist, presented a much appreciated faculty recital with a wide range of se- lections from Gershwin to our own Rene Frank and closing with a hymn by ha Sankey. Often recitals don't involve just one pedormer but severaL Both Dennm Kesler and Kevin Sowers had an array of performers with them: Greg Lehr, dnnnsgPaulDavoH,bassgSteve Shen man, percussion, etc. Some recitals lean more to the clas- smalrepenone as dd Teny Cmys senior vocal recital. Others with their smechonofhymnsandspunualsongs make an hour of praise for the guests, but whatever the repertoire gratitude to God is always expressed for the tal- ents He has given. Senior Ftecitals John Gerig, Trumpet January 18, 1981 Terry Clay, Soprano February 8, 1981 Mitsuru Kato, Organ March 22, 1981 Kay McCormick, Organ April 26, 1991 Junior Ftecifals Kevin Sowers, Classical Guitar January 25, 1981 Dennis Kesler, Tenor February 5, 1981 22 For a music major the Senior Recital is an exciting combination of all your past studies, so that in a very real sense preparation begins on the first day of your first semester. lf approached with the right attitude the recital need not be a frightening time. When my children bring me a gift they have made, I see the beauty of all their love in their creation, never noticing the imperfections which have nothing whatsoever to do with the real gift- their love. If we prepare to the best of our ability, then make our recital a gift of love to God, the author of all creativity, He too will not see all the imperfections. For me personally, my Senior Recital is a time of seeing the miracle of God's faithfulness fulfilled. "For with God nothing shall be impossible." tLuke 1237, innumerable times during the past four years God has strengthened me, has moved mountains, and has shown me the way when to my eyes none was visible. My family, the F.W.B.C faculty and staff, and all my brothers and sisters in Christ have been God's tools in making the impossible possible.

With great and varied talents they instruct us in every course, en- couraging us to learn to be disciplined now and to apply ourselves to maturity. Probably every student has his own list of favorite professors in whose classes he may enroll whenever it is possible. But though we love our pro- fessors so much, how frequently do we lift them up in prayer? This may as- tound some, but they are humang our instructors need our prayers and words of encouragement to give them a sense of achievement and victory over whatever circumstances may come upon them. Let us not be slack in this most important responsibility of supporting those in authority over us whom we treasure in prayer. For this is wisdom, to actually make use of God's gift to man, prayer, using it to plead with the Spirit of God in all his benevo- lent mercy for all of us, his children. Not only must our professors pre- pare lessons and lectures, grade pa- pers and various assignments, but many of them also take time away from their personal activities and families and friends to sponsor us in our activi- ties. Truly we salute our professors in the Lord, appreciating their time given and their patience toward all of us. 24 - -'Y l 'P. k .ji V 5,,,,,:...l....-...

Just as it has been said that the hero is brave only five minutes longer than the average per- son, it may also be reasonable to say that the diligent and disciplined person ap- plies himself only minutes longer per as- signment than those who just barely pass their courses. "Be diligent in season and out of season." You know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. 316 28 - -N r,r' ,- g I, s I 'sr if TOP LEFT: Joe Rossi. BOTTOM LEFT: Ken Tucker. TOP: Kent Harding.

Storm Before the Calm Soon after Dr. Hughes calls the room to attention for prayer, the storm of antics, conversation, and newspaper reading will calm and the History and Philosophy of Sci- ence class in Witmer 10 will come into session. With a flexible outline, the class discusses topics such as meta- physics, aesthetics, logical starting point, epistemology, and ethics in science from a Christian viewpoint. Special emphasis is placed upon applying a Christian world view and vantage from which the student may consistently con- front issues in science today from the biblical perspective. yy SC -or 30 rt- , . 1 1 1 Ni y ' 'fW,K'.'K t x -,X l n A Day in the Windy City E . ,gg X X .

Hav- ing studied much about many of the exhibits in the muse- um, the great halls seemed alive with meaning and teem- ing with new and vibrant challenges to broaden world views. From exhibits of every animal imaginable to arti- facts of ancient Egypt, the students were impressed at the diversity, development, and extravagance of our would and cultures. While the art students were at the Chicago Museum of Art the entire day, at noon the archeology students visited the Rockefeller chapel and the Oriental Institute on the campus of Chicago University, and the science students then spent their afternoon in the Museum of Science and lndustry. The day was long and hard on the feet, but it was a beautiful highlight of the semester. 31 Wisdom hath built her house, she hath laid her seven pillars 22, 'msg U fx El SPCR-I-S Netters Do Well Led by Coach Fishel, the tennis team finished second in the conference.

One prayer that I have as I leave F.W.B.C. is that I would continue to grow by His grace and become as earnest and intense in my following after Him as I am in playing a tennis match. He is worthy! Kent Harding: Senior Struggles, frustrations, victory, pains of practice, defeat, fun, stretching, and growing are all positive factors in playing tennis at F.W.B.C. But what I cher- ish most is the opportunity to be a part of something significant with other believers, brothers Cand even one sister! all of whom I really love being with. For this reason, tennis for me was a very rich exper- ience. I'd like to also take this opportunity to say "Hi, mom, I love you!"

This expressive and enthusiastic squad proved to be great morale boost- ers starting with soccer in the fall and going on through to the end of men's basketball. An added plus for the year was the gift from Student Association enabling the group to travel some with the team. 37 80-81 The 'Kick-Cff' Year For Soccer The 1980 Soccer Season made history at Fort Wayne Bible College as the first Varsity soccer program the col- lege has ever sponsored. While the season may not have seemed successful from a statistical standpoint, as we concluded with a 3-7-1 record, it was extremely success- ful in establishing soccer as a varsity sport. The record is not indicative of many accomplishments that were made and the outstanding individual efforts represented on the team. We began our season with only three members of our team having participated in varsity high school soccer, plus three experienced foreign players, giving us a total of six students who had previous training in the game of soccer, that left ten men with little or no experience in the game. The most exciting aspect of the season had to be seeing the growth and improvement in these players in terms of their abilities in soccer and their commitment to representing Christ on the field. The 1980 Varsity Soccer team illustrated Chirst-like attitudes and true sportsman- ship through their competition. With one year under our belts, we're looking forward to building a program around these pioneers. I' ltllilllll N 1 4 .W S TOP: Coach Denny Williamsp ABOVE: CBack row!

Although we worked hard and went all out to win, the major purpose of the team was to glorify God. During practices we took time to memo- rize parts of Philippians and drilled on these verses as we did our running. Before each game we sang a verse from "Like a River Glorious" and prayed as a team. Often we would chant "To the Glory of God" instead of "Let's Go!" Our attitude on the field was complimented a num- ber of times and Coach Williams would encourage us to be a testi- mony especially when playing non-Christian teams. . . .

The sea- son was highlighted by both stellar team and individual performances. The 9-11 win-loss record is not indicative of the many achievements gained by the women athletes. For example, the win-loss record does not indicate that the team had eight wins and only two losses in the North Central Christian Athletic Conference. The record was good enough for second place in the conference. Nor does the record indicate that two members of the volleyball team were elected to the all-conference team for their outstanding play and sportsmanship. The two players elected to the all-conference team were Lori Hebert and Lori VanRyn. The season was long and often times frus- trating for many of those involved.

Falcons Endure A Year "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith developes perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." James 1:2-4 These verses from James summarize the season which the Men's Basketball team recently completed. The 4-17 record says a great deal about the men's season. The season was marked by many discouraging and disappoint- ing practices and games. Yet the team perservered and stood the testing. The season was long and hard but the players kept going. They resisted the urge to give up en- tirely. Eventually their determination and stic-to-itiveness paid off when they won their last two out of three games. Truly this season paid great dividends in the transforma- tion ofthe coach and the team members into more mature and complete Christians. l 44 .Q --..,,,..-N is---N., 3 Cf Growth The sound of bouncing balls . . . another practice . . . tired muscles . . . sprained ankles . . . sore knees . . . fatigue . . . drudgery . . . late hours . . . falling asleep over homework . . . short nights . . . depression . . . defeat . . . frustration . . . loneliness . . . no deisre to go on. . . shooting slumps . . . poor play . . . disappointment with oneself . . . short tempers . . . thoughts of quitting, yet knowing I can't . . . and wondering why I ever decided to play in the first place. 6 But then: A victory . . . a word of encouragement . . .a good game. . .fellowship with teammates . . . friends. . . fans . . .trips . . . singing . . .

Calvin Rychener Basketball has a special place in my life. Not because I enjoy the sport, which I do, but because through a basketball program in the Missionary church I personally was introduced to the gospel of Christ and to people who were living the Christian life. On January 4, 1976 in the evening, at my bed- side, I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. Well in the Fall of '77 the Lord led me to FWBC by way of shutting all other doors. Basketball here at FWBC has helped my personal being tre- mendously. It has helped me to gain more confi- dence in myself, it has helped me to stay in much better shape as part of the balance needed in life: it has helped me to be a more disciplined person and disciplined disciple for the Lord. It has also brought me close to some young men and cheerleaders, and especially to the trainer and to a wonderful coach who was firm enough to push me when I needed it, wise enough to not let basketball take first place in my life, authoritative enough to admit to his short comings, and gentle and sensitive enough to be concerned about my personal problems and strug- gles. Thus basketball to me is more than just a game. . . . Kelvin Diller flfcfwns . 34 i S Spirit And Their Moves -'A Y ,W .-W . A ...-vw P W. E wgmtlisxv vw., , i . ,igwm x -0- Q.

Under the direction of Coach Kathy Kephart, the ladies fasioned a .500 season with seven wins and seven losses. The season was marked by tired muscles, long practices, and a strong feeling of unity among the participants. These women are to be acknowl- edged for their tremendous determination and sportsman- ship which they displayed throughout the season. Their performance and attitude truly shows that all things, in- cluding basketball, can be done to the glory.of God. TEAM MEMBERS: tstandingl Coach Kephart, Cathy Austin, Alberta Lubberts, Lori Wilka, Cindy Sauder, Lori Hebert, and score keeper Shirley Neff, Ckneelingb Carolyn Kauffman, Diana Weeks, Jacci Oyer, and Cindy Irwin. Playing basketball for the FWBC women's team has truly been a blessing in my life. Before deciding whether to play on the team I sought God's guid- ance. Sure, I wanted to play but I also wanted to make sure my motives were right. To do all forthe glory of God is easy for me to say, but could I really play basketball for His glory? Well, I can honestly say I tried my best to play for the glory of God. It taught me that I could do it. One verse that kept me going through the season was Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me the strength." As I reflect back on the season I recall my most enjoyable moments as being the special devotions shared by each player on the team. God taught me how I could better worship Him and communicate to Him through each of their own unique styles of wor- ship. God truly unified our team through our devo- tional times. I truly believe that these devotional times made our team." . . . Cathy Austin wait in anticipation as Cathy Austin fires.

The team participated in various tourna- ments in Illinois, Michigan, and Indiana. This year the team also hosted their own tournament which was held at the Concordia Seminary gymnasium. The participants in the tourney were Bluffton College, Notre Dame, and FWBC. The Volleyball Club is totally funded through private dona- tions with the majority of support coming from a volleyball marathon which the Club holds once a year. The Club is composed of and led by the students themselves. The Volleyball Club pays tribute to the initiative and capability of the students of Fort Wayne Bible College. This year the team members were Scott Duncan, Bob Mc- Kenna, John Gerig, John Pettit, Marcus Warner, Dave Byall, Jeff Gerig, and Steve Sherman. 'ss ing, .0 4 W be-U Q-L...

But "being a thinking Chris- tian is the best thing you can do for Christ in the 1980s." The Christian po- sition is a logically respectable posi- tion and can be defended in the arena of ideas. But there were some warn- ings: Remember Christianity "stands on many Iegs." Don't let it stand on a single formula you come up with. Set aside questions that seem too hard for you right now. Paradox is a part of Christian theology in many ways: the incarnation is the central paradox. ln the lecture on the Christian mind and science, Jim Barcus talked about the limitation of any paradigm or model used to explain reality. ABOVE: Paul Lawson presents a carefully con- sidered view, RIGHT: The reception. si... The Barcueses fielded questions from many areas of the arts and sciences. The questions about modern music were troublesome to them. Having great pleasure in the performance of the older classics on violin and piano, they found modern dissonance indefensible. In the discussions on humanism the definition was important. With the recent secularization of humanism it has taken a bad turn.

Among the chapel programs fashioned for this purpose were a film which took us into the heartland of China along the Yangste River, a description of church life in Romania by a professor who had taught there, a panel of our missionary "kids" telling of their schooling, and a sharing time with our international students from Japan, Jamaica, South Af- rica, Norway, and Haiti.

Out of that effort has come kidnap- pings, pie in the face, egg swallowing and other sundry events that have in one way or another fastened interest upon some aspect of mission.

Cho- rale was a vital part of "Messiah" and "Martyr's Mirror" and has helped us worship in special events, chapels, and concerts. The Chorale also brought smiles and some toe-tapping when they present- ed "Twentiana" a program of popular i songs from the '20s.

The Chorale said a fond farewell to graduating Allen Shaw, member for A four years and this year's president. 67 egg 5 'N "Martyrs' Mirror" Has Powerful Message "The Martyrs' Mirror," a church opera by Alice Parker portrays the persecution of the Anabaptists in Switzerland between 1520 and 1535. The author drew the plot of this story, the characters, documents, and some of the hymn texts from "The Martyrs' Mirror," a book published in Amsterdam in the 1600's. In Act I Georg, the pastor of a secret congregation of the "re-bap- tizers", realizing that some traditions of the state church were not scriptural, explains his stand to the small group. The same day man- dates are read ordering the arrest and execution of all Anabaptists. Georg, Catharina, Jan and Mayeken are led off to jail and tortured. In prison they communicate with each other through song. When they are sentenced to die by fire on the Market Day, Mayeken becomes upset with her husband, accusing him of leading her astray because she realizes she will never see her baby again. ln Act ll the martyrs are brought to the stake in the town square on Market Day. Mayeken, who is still not ready to die, is comforted by her pastor. Jan, her husband, sings a joyful song of his martyrdom. Mayeken finds new faith and peace. The martyrs ascend their scaffolds with victory and assurance. TOP: Jan and Mayeken Wouters tMike Bad- gerow and Terry Clayj.

FCUNDATION Foundation: A mixed vocal ensemble that traveled three out of every four weekends presenting God's message through music in two to four different churches each weekend. The group's ministry took on many different forms, at times simply sharing with those who needed some one to talk to, at times competing actively with church youth groups in various sports events. The major goal of the group was to share Jesus Christ through any means, but mainly through music and testimony. I 73 C.S. Cares Students are involved in sharing their love for Christ in a variety of areas: club sponsors, Sunday school teachers, children's church directors, pianists, organists, pastors, small- group Bible study leaders, student ad- visors, etc. In the midst of our studies we are reminded that our studies must find an application and our heart-re- sponses an outlet.

P' I ,,- sb' U, The dormitories on the FWBC campus are the cen- ters of many activities. These dorms are "home" for students nine months out of the year. No matter what a person is looking for, it will usually be found in either Lexington, Bethany, Schultz, Meyer, House, or Noble House. If it's a quiet place to study the privacy of the dorm rooms is always available. Are you looking for a job? Talk to Doug Hayes about the "johns" on 1st floor Schultz. Are you looking for friendship and encourage- ment? If so, consider the efforts of the "Peanut Gang" and their voluntary actions to support the students of BC. Are you a mischievious person? If so, you are in luck. Mischief reigns in all of the dorms, especially to- wards the end of the semesters when tension begins to build. This year Noble House was involved in T.P., water fights, etc. So, whatever you are looking for, look first in the dorms. 91 Look What The Dorms Many people feel that a dormitory is a place for students to sleep nine months out of a year while they attend school. This is practically, but not entirely true in the case of FWBC. While the dorms are places to eat, drink, and be merry, these are by no means their only functions. Each year, Schultz, Lexington, and Bethany select individuals from each wing to constitute a dorm council. These coun- cils are composed of the S.A. from each wing plus an elected representative from each wing. The duties of the councils are varied. They serve as a forum through which students may air their ideas, concerns, and complaints. These are then ideally passed to whomever they pertain to. While this feedback system is valuable, the greatest efforts of the dorm councils go into organizing activities to promote both dorm and school unityg an example of this is the school wide scavenger hunt which took the partici- pants all over the city. The Schultz dorm council was re- sponsible for "Operation Yoda" which was an organized pillow fightlball game. Also a major undertaking in the girls' dorms was the planning of a theme which decora- tions revolved around for open dorms. Other activities were breakfasts, arm wrestling competition and awards day for the Ladies of Lexington. These are just a few of the activities which the dorm councils were responsible for this year.

The highlight of the year was the facelift per- formed on Leightner. Druing the summer all the rooms were completely repainted, new curtains were added, and all but two of the rooms were newly wallpapered. The 3rd floor of Leightner was converted into the "Upper Room", a chapel whose atmosphere is one of quiet and solitude. The snack shop was also reopened for the first time in several years. The snack shop featured the "Hollow Plate", a Sunday night special for 81.55. Student Associ- ation was also for other attractionsat Leightner. These new attractions include the Bumper Pool table, Atari, and a number of new table games. SA also made several dona- tions to the school this year. These were chairs for the Hollow, a PA system, and the "Falcon" mascot. This year's Student Association Committee did a great deal with their talents to benefit the school. 80-81 truly was a busy and profitable year. f Sit Stl..

First, we needed to de- termine a way to turn the Student Union into a posi- tive influence on this campus. Secondly, we wanted to provide a variety of programming that would be a low cost emphasis and yet quality to remain attrac- tive and purposeful to the Student Body. We be- lieved that to honor Christ, our responsibility was to add a positive influence to this campus and also lay a foundation to make future committees more effec- tive. We believe that the changes in organization, facilities, and programming have all helped to ac- complish our goals. We as a committee provided leadership, but much of the work and accomplish- ments were realized because students supported us by getting involved and offereing their time and abilities. Thank you all for making this year a suc- cess. Jon Caskey Student Association Presi- dent Bowlathon Scores Big A Bowlathon was held for the second consecutive year. This event was once again sponsored by Student Associ- ation. The Bowlathon was brought about by a great deal of planning and preparation by the entire Committee. The purpose of the Bowlathon was to raise money for special projects around Campus and to promote school unity and togetherness. Students, Faculty, and Staff members alike participated by both raising sponsors and pledging mon- ey. The pledges for the event were based on so many cents per pin or on a flat amount agreed upon beforehand. The end result was a total of almost 35000, which was raised through the efforts of everyone who was involved in the 1981 Bowlathon.

"Parent's Day" had be- gun. This year Parent's Day was primarily taken over as a Student Association function. The day began with a ser- vice held in Founders' chapel. This service featured musi- cal numbers performed by various groups and individuals, drama, by HIS Company, and welcoming remarks and an- nouncements by Jon Caskey and President Bostrom. ln addition all three dormitories were opened for inspection. The day was topped off in the evening with a concert presented by the Fort Wayne Bible College Chorale. gflQ1.fEyf4 f .. - , im.-1.

These functions serve a dual purpose: C17 they provide revenue for the classes: C27 they foster a wide variety of social activities. These, along with those events planned by Student Association, help to establish a full calendar of events for the BC campus. The classes usually try to select those types of activities which invite the interest of the entire student body. This year several movies were brought to the campus via the classes. Some of these movies were "Ben Hur", the "Muppet Movie", "The Hobbit", and "Assignment: Life". "Assignment: Life" dealt with the controversial subject of abortion and was followed by a panel discussion on the subject. Some of the other activities were "Sadie Hawkins", a box social, fireside chats, and the Junior-Senior Banquet. These class activities require a large amount of time and preparation but usually are well worth the effort. 101 Through The Horizon "Through the Horizon . . .A Sunrise and a Sunset" was the theme for this year's Ju- nior-Senior Banquet. This long anticipated spring event is a special tribute to Seniors which signifies that graduation isjust around the corner. This year the banquet was held on April 24 with entertainment beginning at 5:00 p.m. The Lantern was the setting for this gala affair. This evening consisted of a variety of music for entertainment and an address giv- en by Dr. Wesley Willis a former professor from the Bible College. After the banquet those who chose to do so went to the YMCA to finish the evening with swimming, raquet ball, and a variety of other activities. 102 1, A '-fx Spring Brings Everyone Out LEFT: Calvin Fiychener and Kevin Studebaker seem to be en- joying the first warmth of Spring tor are they waiting on some- one?l: BELOW: Mr, Cartmel's class is caught catching some rays: BOTTOM LEFT: Lori Wilka prepares to pick up a hot smash: BOTTOM RIGHT: Jeff lsnogle concentrates on one of the pure pleasures of spring. aa..- .si "wg, N Q Saga Serves Up Good Times RIGHT: Food Service direc- tor, Sandy Fihonemus makes a quality control check: BELOW: These Io- vely ladies are the cafete- ria cooks.

Many hours are spent here enjoying the food and the company. This is due in part to the great efforts Sandy and the cooks put into each meal. Great care is taken to prepare both nutri- tious and good-tasting food to satisfy all but the fus- siest palates. Food, however, is not all that Sandy and the cooks do for the student body. At least once a month a special meal is planned to break the monotony of college life. Some of the "specials" have been the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, an outdoor break- fast, a Wild-West lunch, a circus, and much, much more. Countless hours of preparation go into making each of the specials an excellent experience. Sandy and the entire kitchen crew are to be commended for their out- standing efforts in making college life as enjoyable as possible. Thank you very much for all you have done for FWBC. - I--- - r -wvvii.-1.1 TOP LEFT: In the fall an outdoor breakfast was held.

Two areas the Married Students Fellowship seek to relate to is the spiritual development of all married students and the social involvement and fellowship with one another. The spiritual development is accomplished through period- ic chapels. The social activities have expanded this year including more married couples. A highlight of the year was the outing to the "Fundome" on April 3. Other activities in- cluded a masquerade party in the Fall, a Christmas party at the Bostrom's, and a gym night in January. 108 Relaxing at the Fundome TOP LEFT: The sign and sign-up sheet proclaiming the coming eventg Inset: the leaders of Married Student's Fellowship are Denny Williams, Steven Ware, Chris Fulton, and Butch Kahawaip BOTTOM LEFT: Mr. and Mrs. Steve Ware enjoy an evening at the Fundomeg TOP RIGHT: Dennis and Monica Collins: ABOVE: Bill Fleesg LEFT: The Burgesses enjoy the evening out. 109 Class E tenders SEA Alpha Kappa TOP: Student Education Association officers are Dr. Nickel Cadviserlg Julie Waggoner, treasurerg Lori McAfee, secretary: Holly Wilson, vice- president: Dave Sell, president.

I Q- -'Q J fl " FRESHMEN The 1980-81 school year was a year of new begin- nings for the incoming Freshmen. They left behind them the familiarity of high school and ventured into the life ofa collegian. They tested the water in areas of new studies, new priorities, and new friends. The Freshman Class sponsored a number of ac- tivities forthe year. These activities included a win- ter show retreat and an old-fashioned box social. The capable leadership worked together to mold the class into a unified body. All in all, it was truly a good beginning for the Freshman Class of 1981.

Prizes such as Lis- terine, baby food, and roses were awarded to make them really feel at home. In November, a furry little creature visited campus at the invitation of the Soph- omore class. "The Hobbit" filled a dull, dreary night with fantasy and adventure. During the spring semes- ter the class held a winter retreat at Epworth Forest and brought Charlton Heston to campus in the role of "Ben Hur." The year was topped off with the Sadie Hawkins, an afternoon filled with food, music, and fun.

This movie was an in-depth study on the subject of abortion. Class unity was striven for through student participation in the class meetings. This was done through devotionals, testimonies, and music. The class chose "Through the Horizon-a sunset and a sunrise" for the theme for the Junior-Senior Banquet.

Graduates of 1981 The Senior Class of FWBC is composed of ordinary people-ordinary people ready to be used by God. Ordi- nary and ready are two key words which express their qualifications for the Lord's service. Most of the Seniors arrived four years ago in 1977. Four years have flown by to bring them to the year of their graduation. Time and again their ordinariness has been displayed. They have 'attended chapels, taken exams, completed projects, played pranks and developed friend- ships. More important, however,is that they've grown both spiritually and intellectually. They are now ready to "run the course." A high-spirited tension prevails as they seek God's will in the days following commencement. This is the Senior Class of 1981 -ordinary people who are ready for God's service. yy QQ, Gene Bailey B.A. Pastoral Ministries Juanita Baker B.S.

For, "Elijah was a man of like feelings and emotions as we are." tJames 5: 16- 1 7D Dr. Demond explained the five crisis periods in Elijah's life: Q11 depressive solitude, C23 unhappy circumstances, Q33 demanding trials, 143 determinable change tsuch as the mid-life crisisb, and C53 deliberate departure tsuch as an unsolicited retirementl. Text: I Kings 17-19. Don't get ex- cited when "the clock strikes one." Hang in there! . 6' I 1, " fl it . 5 , "I it x "4 , The Benediction Great is Thy Faithfulness there is no shadow of turning with Thee dear Father. Thank You for reminding us of Your faithfulness through Your prophet Elijah. And thank You, too, for reminding us that pain and pleasure are both a part of life a part of Your eternal plan which You mean for our ultimate good. And now, thank you for our Seniors forthe months and years we have had . . . to enjoy each other . . . to learn from each other . . . to nourish each other . . . to meet You in each other Creator-God for indeed we are created in Your image. What beautiful reminders our Seniors have been to us of Your living presence. Please, dear Father continue living Your love through them. May they sense Your direction step by step . . . May they trust in You with their whole heart and not lean on their own understanding . . . May they love You more than any human dear one . . . May they thus love many earthly dear ones to You . . . May they be at peace in every circumstance knowing You have said, "I will never no never no never leave you nor forsake you." Here and now, we commit our Seniors . . . and all of us . .. to You for this day and for all of our days until that glorious future day when we will ultimately and finally enjoy You and each other. , forever and ever. We have delighted in the beauty of this baccalaureate hour. We close our prayer for this time in the name of Jesus Christ and He is our Lord! Amen and Amen. Alumni Banquet Program Features Chorale Helium balloons festooned the Fellowship Hall of First Church where the young alumni gathered. Steve Morley emceed the banquet catered by HalI's. The program in the chapel featured the Chorale with a great sacred concert. And oh, yes, a popular package of toe-tapping tunes from the '20s. Jeanette and Beth help draw attention to the historic pulpit unveiled during the program. The founder-pastors ofthe college used this pulpit in the early days of the college.

'1 J. 2 ...I 'E 5 When reflecting upon my tenure as Editor of The Vine, a variety of feelings creep into my mind. First of al exists the feeling of relief. l'm glad the book is finally finished. A second feeling which comes to mind is one of frustration. The yearbook has been a Jekyl and Hyde experience for me. Half of me detests the organizing, delegating, and details which are involved with the publication while the other half recognizes all of these areas are weaknesses in my life. A third feeling that grips me is one of tremendous gratitude. God has touched my life by allowing me to work with a number of people over the past year. This first such person has been Miss Conrad. Without her help, prodding, sense of humor, encouragement, and friendship, I would have most assuredly gone crazy. I would also like to thank Tim Niccum for his faithful picture taking, Mr. Linton for his work in the darkroom, and Rhonda Nay for her constant support, and to everyone else who shared their time and efforts. Finally, I thank God for not allowing me to discover all that was involved in putting together a yearbook. If I had known then what I know now l probably would never have agreed to the editorship, and I would have missed a valuable and satisfying experience. EDITOR ........................................
