Thank you for coming to our ballgames, participating in
our parties, guiding our youth conferences, assisting the
faculty, studying to improve yourself, sharing your family
and family insights. Thank you for your spiritual insights
and most of all for being you.
We dedicate our 1981 Vine to you,
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.
and in favor
in stature Wm., God
Luke 2 52
He grew in wisdom
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.
. . . and stature
Q: 'Era' 5, . ,, l ,. , f.
Jesus had a body that grew. We regard our own
bodies as God's gift to us to be presented back to
Him as a living sacrifice fin good conditionj. Our
aerobics requirement keeps us jogging and jump-
ing, and our varsity and intramural sports pro-
grams keep us active and alert, as well as giving
us a great deal of fun and fellowship.
and in favor with God
Jesus walked with God, always listening to
Him-He was His beloved Son. 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.

IN MEMORY OF . . .
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,
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-
Excerpts from the Inaugural Address,
"Axheads, Fish Sandwiches, and
"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
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
"When you come, bring the cloak
which I left at Troas and the books,
especially the parchments" tll Tim.
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

credit. TOP: Ira Gerig and Dr. Ted Nickel prepare to participate in the opening prooessional along

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
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
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.
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
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.

Can Be Fun
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
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
New Majors and Minors Added
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.

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
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.
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

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.
Thank youl-Kay McCormick

James, Cephas, and the beloved John
One of the richest assets of the col-
lege is its outstanding faculty mem-
bers. 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.

So how does a student gain wisdom?
By diligenceg diligence not only when he
really wants to study, but also when appe-
tite, weariness, mood, and inquisitive
friends all speak to the contrary. 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.

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.

Pictured are the History and Philosophy of Science and
the Biblical Archeology classes after they had toured the
massive Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. 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
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.

As I am about to graduate from F.W.B.C. I can

has been a time when the Lord has taught me a lot
about living for His honor and glory.

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,

The losses were hard to take, but the show went on. The
encouragement to the team was constant. This expressive
and enthusiastic squad proved to be great morale boost-
ers starting with soccer in the fall and going on through to

was the gift from Student Association enabling the group
to travel some with the team.
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

Athletics at FWBC are unique
because they are kept in the
right perspective and contribute
to the overall goal of the college.
I saw this first hand by playing on
the soccer team. 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

The women's volleyball team can boast a very com-
mendable season forthe 1980-81 school year. 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-

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.

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

The women's basketball team completed the 1980-81
basketball season with their best record ever in inter-
collegiate competition. 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
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."

The FWBC Volleyball Club completed its second sea-

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-

Staley Lectures With The Barcuses:
A Time For Give And Take CSpring S EJ
Said the Barcuses, some fear that in
having a Christian mind, they must stop
thinking. 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.
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. Man
now creates without thought of God.

SMF Gets Our
The steering committee of the Student Missionary Fel-
lowship set as its primary goal to bring the student body
into an awareness ofthe importance of missions. 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. We heard some of our alumni
speak to us too, among them Denny and Debbie Doud who
told of their experience in Yugoslavia and sang for us too.

ln Meeting Budget
Through the offerings taken during the bi-monthly chap-
els our Fellowship has provided scholarship money to
make possible the exchange program with Jamaica The-
ological Seminary and given S1,000 for a radio program in
Haiti. Also students going overseas each summer are par-
tially funded through the Fellowship. Jerri Heiser in Jamai-
ca this year was sent reminders of our prayers and inter-
est. Paul Lawson from Jamaica this year gave a chapel
message on the dangers of idolatry and security.
Rodney Schuler has been responsible for two chapel
programs each month. That has meant planning, sharing
thoselplans with the committee, and then putting the plans
into effect. The evening before a chapel has to be set
apart for rehearsals. 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. Before chapel there have
been tense moments of wondering if all the personnel will
arrive and if they will fill their roles as planned. Rodney has
had a way of getting people to respond. Scripture and
music have always been chosen with care and those se-
lected to pray have responded to the theme and spirit of

worship in special events, chapels,
The Chorale also brought smiles and

"Martyrs' Mirror" Has
"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.

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.
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. The greatest exper-
ience acquired from a C.S. project is
caring and sharing with others.

What Happens ln The Dorms?
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
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. Who says a dorm is just a place to sleep?

Student Association Makes
Student Association had a very busy and profitable year
in 1980-81. 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.

set its goals for the year, two things were at the
forefront of all our thinking. 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-

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.

Parents Show Support
On October 25th parents from around the country con-
verged on the campus of Fort Wayne Bible College to
check things out for themselves. "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.

Each year all four classes at FWBC are responsible to
sponsor at least two social functions to promote class and
campus unity. 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.
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
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.

With Good Taste
During a student's years of school, one of his main
meeting places is the cafeteria. 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

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.
Freshman Class Officers: Marla Murry, Tommy Logan, Cyndy Nantz, and
Allen Rassi. Joan Mayers ton Ieftl, adviser.

This year the Sophomore class began by welcom-

them really feel at home. In November, a furry little

The Junior Class had a very active year. The class
sponsored the movie entitled "Assignment Life."
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.
The Junior Class Officers: Doug Beutler, Diane Copeland, Jim Albarran,
and Dennis Kesler. Ron Scharfe tto the leftj adviser.

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

Word From Elijah
Dr. Sterling Demond's thesis for his baccalaureate
chapel address was that the days of crisis Elijah faced are
similarto days of crisis we will face. 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!

Great is Thy Faithfulness
there is no shadow of turning with Thee
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
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
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.

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.
