L: THE SEASONS CHA Changing seasons, challenged hearts Throughout the year. though the seasons changed, the emphasis at the college re- mained the same. The challenge that was pre- sented to the students was an emphasis on revival. The theme of revival was carried during the year in each chapel service as well as prayer meetings. Concern was voiced by many that an apathetic attitude had settled on the college. This concern led to many differ- GED ent things throughout the year. Prayer meet- ings and Bible studies were held each week in the dorms, chapels centered on prayer be- came common, and a Concert of Prayer was initiated in the chapel for those who wished to pray for God to work in his people. Thus. many began to focus more on God and what his word meant to them. As the year went by and the seasons came and went, many hearts were challenged for God.

I have to help my room- mate clean our room for open dorm tonight." OPEN DORM-The two words that send shivers down the spine of every student on campus at F.W.B.C. Once a month an open dorm is held in either Schultz or Lexington dormitory. The doors are unlocked on Friday even- ings from 7:00 to 11:00. The basic idea is to give the guys and gals a chance to socialize as well as visit each others' dorm room. To make open dorms even more exciting, a spe- cial council was formed to plan innovative Halloween night. For this holiday the guys planned a costume party and a pumpkin carv- ing contest. In january during Health Week, the girls planned unique seminars for health aware- ness. Other open dorms not held on special occasions were still fun-filled with things such as French cuisine, scavenger hunts, and games. Sometimes students offer cookies or potato chips in their rooms for passers by. Open dorms give students a chance to real- ly see each other's private life. As Karen Stan- aford put it, "To me, open dorms offer an exciting inside look at students' personalitiesx K activities. In October Schultz had its open dorm on that normally don't show up in everyday cam- pus life." 'L 1 hx' COWBOY CHUCK-Fastest coffee drinker in the Mid- west, Cheers!

"I feel we have really achieved that goal." Throughout the year signs were posted all around the school announcing activities to be held, such as skating parties, movies at the Hollow, and Kangaroo Court. Student Government met weekly to dis- cuss new ideas. This group sought diligently to be the voice of the student body. Another goal was to provide students with activities for the sake of fellowship. Group activities played a very essential part in the lives of both on and off campus students. This year's officers were as follows: President: Brad Ulick Vice President: Scott Badgerow Secretary: Sally Slotterback Treasurer: Tom Olney Public Relations Secretary: Lisa Messner Also there were five members-at-large: Spiritual Life: David Williams Sports: Curt Schnur Special Events: jill Richardson Leightner: Greg Glotzbach Concessions: Eric Hosterler Staff Advisor: Tim Archer Faculty Advisor: Dr. Doug Barcalow xg if Q:-if x at args , . - ... .V ,,.....,-L..-4,ailnl-A Tina Bowers jams on her keyboards at the AirBand Contest.

Science courses involved trips to AuSable, Indiana Dunes, Columbus Zoo, etc. CE majors attended a curriculum confer- ence and the Sunday School Convention in Chicago. Camping class checked out the camp facilities near North Webster. The Intro to Art class visited the Detroit Institute. Elementary Ed majors attended a confer- ence in Grand Rapids, the Indianapolis Chil- dren's Museum, and a conference at Fox Is- land. The AV Lab students visited places in Fort Wayne, such as the Public Library and United Supply Company. Of course there were numerous field trips to local churches. CE majors visited a major- ity of them to see their CE departments in action. One of the most unusual trips was that of the PM majors to a funeral home. "I think he's breathing."

Melody Kindy ran out from the SAGA kitchen into the dining area with red stains up her arm and on her apron. Her whole body began to shake and she fell to the floor as if she were going into convulsions. A couple students ran to her and someone yelled, "Get the nurse!" Karen Beukema, one of the school nurses and the Residence Director of Lexington dorm, arrived on the scene and began to dem- onstrate first aid techniques as if Melody real- ly had been cut and was losing blood. S Health Week was in full swing at this point. Fort Wayne Bible College experienced a full week of basic first aid training. The week was planned by Karen Beukema, Sherry Piepenbrink, and Sharon Mejeur. Fromjanu- ary 16-30, students were constantly reminded of the importance of good health, and rein- forced with those elementary elements of first aid. In the main hall of Witmer a table was set up for those who were interested in having their blood pressure taken. "Having your S blood pressure measured is a very beneficial aspect of good health. It helps determine how well someone is taking care of his body and what he needs to do to get back on the right track," stated Lisa Kelley. CPR classes were held for those interested in learning what to do in case someone's heart would stop beating or their breathing ceased, Each day in the cafeteria certain foods were designated as "good" or "bad" for health. Also lectures concerning eating disor- ders, management of stress, and the impor- tance of exercise were held. Brochures floated all around campus. Some emphasized the Emergency Care Clin- ics in town that were available to assist in any emergency. Red stickers with emergency phone numbers were distributed to students and faculty. This First Aid Review will be continued next year because the learning experience was good for everyone. Information about emergency centers was made avail- able on the table in Witmer. -fx V v ga -l 1-...Ne .... , cw,.,.,.. W ri -we-vw E 'N- Ss we S533 tg "This is really hurting my arm."

The second annual Mandate Conference was held at Ball State University,january 23- 25. A group of thirty, plus Gerald Steele, the Missions Program Director, attended. Speakers for the seminar included: David Bryant, Gordon Aeschliman, Steve Haw- thorne,josh McDowell, and Dr.j. Robertson McQuilkin. These speakers presented to the group of over a thousand college-age stu- dents, the challenge of missions and the im- portance of it in everyday Christian life. On the final evening a Concert of Prayer was held. For most, it was new and eye-open- ing that one could sustain an attitude of pray- er for several hours. "Mandate '87 really challenged me to a life-time commitment," stated Lisa Kelley. Many spoke in chapel later about the specific ways in which the conference helped them. The Concert of Prayer was the highlight of the Mandate Conference. Dr.j. Robertson McQuilkin begins his seminar on "The Word, The World, and You." Curt Schnur and jim Gippert read along in the word as the speaker directs. l l l fgff""",' f 1 , 'J X X X Krm Butler plays "Allegro" from SONATINA, Op.

The College Concert Band pre- sented an evening of old favorites: stuff like Gerswhin's "Porgy and Bess," some PDQ Bach, Anderson's "Bugler's Holiday" and bits from Loewe's "My Fair Lady." These had the power to get tired blood pumping again. The Band for the evening concert was composed of thirty-two students, graduates, and friends, plus three part-time music facul- ty, and two famous brothers, Wes and Bill. CBill Gerig has been with the band all year playing baritonej "It was one of our best chosen programs for the enjoyment ofthe instrumentalists- demanding enough, but not overwhelming, a balance of the light classical stuff and the X i "' ' "Q Broadway show tunes," declared Conductor Dana Collins.

Students needed more money to survive than they had needed in the past. Weekend pizza parties began to decrease. The lack of money seemed to be a real annoyance. j But wait! They had forgotten the jobs- money-paying jobs-that are available through the college. S Personnel Director, Don Hamm, makes it easy for any student interested to obtain a job. An added advantage to working for the college is that all or part of a students pay- check can be applied to his or her outstand- ing account. A variety of jobs are available to students. Deb Stout, Student Personnel Director, deals l l i A ' - S individually with all those interested in seek- ing employment. Positions open on campus range from audio-visual department to switchboard. Some students with cars seek employment off campus. Since many fast food restaurants and department stores are located fairly near to the college, finding employment is not much ofa problem. v '-- ' s x on ,Q s .- X ' ' x, - .

Every year at practically any institution, in the States, students and faculty receive awards. Some are given for good grades or participation in sports. But what about awards for those people who do things that are a little bit out of the ordinary? Are there any awards for them? ln 1979 Falcon Feather Awards were cre- ated at B.C. A committee of four students and two facultyfstaff people was formed. This committee must be alert to find student, faculty, and staff members deserving special recognition by the FWBC community. Such people are recognized for some unique act, achievement, or contribution or for exhibit- ing an especially good attitude or by exerting an unusually positive influence over the body of Christ at FWBC. ll llll A 5 f I l l s- 5 3 Q, s 341355 w - i E .

The award is made during a chapel time when the surprised person is called forward and presented a lapel pin in the shape of a gold feather and a certifi- cate which describes the person's special con- tribution to life here. "It's good to recognize the good things people do, using this structured method. Hopefully it will make us all more sensitive to going that second mile," commented Wava Bueschlen, who chaired the committee this year. The other members of the committee were Dennis Doran, David Spyker, Lori Wy- att, janelle DeMond, and Don Hamm, the second facultyfstaff person.

It was Saturday morn- ing, May 9. Two flags led the way for the processional, followed by the board members, the faculty, the staff, and the graudates. "Pomp and Cir- cumstance" greeted the procession as they entered Founders, Directed by jay Platte, the Chorale sang "The Lord Is My Shepherd." Then, the ad- dress was given by Dr. Bruce Dunn concern- ing "the most useful English word-no." Dr. Richard Dugan presented the class of 1987, and Dr. Donald Gerig accepted them for graduation. Forty-three of the 45 gradu' ates were present to accept their diplomas and congratulations from the board and Dr. Gerig. Seven graduates received an Associate of Arts degree, 30 received a Bachelor of Science, and eight received a Bachelor of Arts. Rev. William Gerig welcomed the seniors into the Alumni Association following the conferring of degrees. Then, the audience joined in singing the Alma Mater. After the recessional, the seniors were sur- rounded by family and friends, congratulat- ing them on their accomplishment.

A J u By the end of May the building was ready for the first broadcast. jerry Boyers, FWBC Board member and owner of EDIFICE Construction Mangement, Wauseon, Ohio, was the general contractor for the building. A Dream Materializes In October we looked out the third floor window of Witmer and saw that the heavy equipment had moved in. The dream of more space for WBCL was taking on a visible form. ln between the rains and frosts the founda- tion was laid, and by Christmas the walls were up and the roof on. The work went on quietly throughjanuary and February. We saw lots of trucks and cars around, but we couldn't see what was hap- pening inside. In March we saw a few things being moved into the building, and by May there was a sidewalk and a new black top on the parking lot. The rubber tires had been taken off the roof and the grounds cleaned up and smoothed out. The architectural design on the front re- l i S r l s f ,. an ,iii gf Q l Q re er t ,v,-.', minded us ofa one story Witmer Hall. When we left for the summer, some of us knew that the first broadcast from the new building was set for june 1. And we heard that the open house would be held August 30. Then we would see the four studios, all having front windows! The staff's comments on the weather would no longer be dependent on what they remembered the weather to be like when they came to work. The thriteen full-time and seven part-time staff members were glad that at last everyone would be on the same floor and easily acces- sible in the five offices, conference room, and two air studios, the news studio, and the talk studio, and-oh yes, the lounge! rfqnfvhi e ' ' jeff Carlson can't wait.

L IU IQCTUUUU x Money Aids in Change The WBCL Sharathon, an an- nual event aimed at raising mon- ey to keep the Christian radio station on the air, was heldjanu- ary 13-15. This year the operating bud- get goal was set for .15360,000 and this goal was reached the third day. As a matter of fact, WBCL brought in about 60,000 above this operating budget goal 5,056 calls were received in for- ty-eight hours. Donations were also received at a pre-Sharathon banquet and by mail-ins. One third of the budget was pledged before Sharathon had started! "Raising over 3400,000 in three days is a fairly awesome task. It is one which requires planning, teamwork, and most which was immediately directedx importantly, faith. Such was evi- toward the 3180,000 needed for new broadcasting equipment. Donations were made by lis- teners in the surrounding com- munities and were taken by phone volunteers.

Biannually ladies from all over Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan meet for a day of spiri- tual uplift. Marsha Bunker, along with her planning board, designed two, two-day seminars dur- ing the year. One is held in the spring and one in the fall. Since facilities at FWBC offered seating for only 750, there were some disappointed women who couldn't attend for lack of space. Besides the main sessions held in Founders Auditorium, there were also classes offered in Witmer. All of these classes for "ladies only" were designed to give them a relaxing and uplifting day in the Lord and relief from fam- ily demands and responsibilities. The dates that the two Day-A-Way ses- sions were held this school year, 1986-87, were March 13 and 14 and October 17 and 18. The registration fee was 313, which included lunch at the school cafeteria. Many ladies-36 each day-volunteered their time to hostess, sell items, and tape workshops. During the spring Day-A-Way, eleven ladies led workshops on everything from widowhood and singleness to handling criticism and the satisfying of unfullfilled de- sires. WBCL stated, "We believe that later when the facilities are available, hundreds more will take part in Day-A-Way. iii s ' -18. '-.s V , as tif 1- 1: M L .flex IX, 8 . ,N T 0-84. .uewir e T' ?!

ATN l 35 lv .r In Current Events Throughout 1986-87, daily news began to sound more and more like "the soaps" or special agent spy stories. It seemed unreal. The hostage crisis went on and on. Three hostages were freed after arms deals, but six more were taken. The fate of Terry Waite, Anglican negotiator, remained unknown. Reporter Nicholas Daniloff was imprisoned on spy charges in Moscow. He was freed for a price as the Summit conference in Reykjavik neared-a conference that brought no agree- ment on nuclear arms control. -Milli Q .W . ,H I ts -' 4 , U The aids epidemic wouldn't go away. From its being just something gays got, it became something anyone could get. The threat of death for hundreds of thousands caused Sur- geon General Koop to call for explicit educa- tion for prevention. Economic crises continued in the farm sec- tor. Scandals concerning insider trading on the stock market multiplied. The imbalance of trade caused uneasiness. japan was repri- manded for dumping computer chips on the market. And the huge national debt wouldn't go away either. The Reagan presidency was plagued by the continuing revelations of Iran-Contra con- nections. Those in position to know what had gone on seemed to know very little. CIA chief, Casey, was hospitalized with a brain tumor. But many were called to testify before a committee of the Senate: McFarlane, North, Secord, Poindexter, etc. The millions given by wealthy Americans for hostage deals and Contra support seemed to have taken strange routes. was lx The Marine Corps came in for its share of criticism when the U.S. embassy in Moscow was found to have been penetrated by KGB agents. Furthermore the new embassy itself may have had Russian surveillance devices embedded in its walls when it was built. University students throughout the world chanted slogans and moved in masses: Arab students continued to protest the occupation ofthe West Bank. China's university students called for more freedoms and were squelched.

Gary Hart, front runner among declared can- didates for the Democratic nomination, with- drew from the race after the humiliating dis- closure of his extra-marital interest. The right of the press to search out and report the covert actions of public figures became a source of question in this bicentennial cele- bration year ofthe Constitution. Many visited the National Archives to marvel at this docu- ment of a free people. i -MIM- W RT is The-Iewish community continued to keep the memory of the Halocaust alive as Nazi war criminals such as Claus Barbie were brought to trail. Also the refusal of the U.S. to allow Austrian Pres. Waldheim entrance because of his alleged envolvement in war crimes under- scored the memory. White South Africans wrestled with their consciences and their fears as they went to the polls. Though Pres.

Chapels were a regular part of every stu- dent's day. The speakers varied from Pastoral Ministries majors to faculty to special speak- ers. One special speaker who was brought in for a convention was Gordon Aeschliman, editor of World Christian magazine. He spoke in chapel as well as spiritual emphasis PRESS N Services on the importance of being a world Christian. He also shared some of his experiences from the mission field. Another missionary that spoke in chapel was Ed Dulka. He told of his encounters with the guerrillas in Columbia.

But the young spoke out too. Each month a senior from among the pas- toral ministries majors was selected by the Program Director. Those who gave chapel sermons during the year werezjohn Richard- son, David Williams, David Maxwell, Roy Kohler, Ron Williams, Cory Koos, and Andy Pauquette. Students spoke out in a variety of other circumstances too: interviews done by SMF, open forums conducted by Pres. Gerig, and as officers and program speakers for student organizations. But perhaps the best of all speaking out occurred when the mikes were in the aisles for a Praise chapel, and ten to twenty testimonies were given. Some young speakers came from outside the college.

Some are part-time students and may be on campus for only a single class. Consequently these students may never have an opportunity to meet each other. GCS exists to provide that opportunity. "The challenge they OCS committee faces," said president Sally Reed, "is how to come up with creative ideas to provide opportunities for fellowship while stu- dents are here on campus." Some ideas appeal to singles and some don't. An off- campus single usually will not come back to campus for an evening party. Thus get- togethers are scheduled during the day. Two events that brought the group to- gether, about half of them, were Oley Piz- za Parties in the Hollow at noon. Singles signed up in advance for the free pound pieces of pizza provided by the organiza- tion. Independent People! The other two planned events did not go as well. The "Fall Fling", a get-ac- quainted fun and games thing on a Friday evening fizzled, according to Sally, the president. Not very many singles showed up. And the March banana-split party at the Hollow didn't draw even the people who had signed up for it. Maybe the fact that it was a gray overcast day kept people from being in a party mood, mused Sally. The ice cream was served at the April event as free sundaes. It is true that the ofricers sometimes felt a little frustrated. But after all, off-campus singles are an independent group and probably always will be. It is good that the opportunity to meet exists. The ever- hopeful OCS committee was made up of Sally Reed, presidentgjim Umpleby, vice- presidentg and Lori Wyatt, secretaryftrea- surer. Randy Salway, Rex Hill, and Richard Schrock linger for a little conversation after the pizza is gone. Sally Reed lifts a pound piece of Oley's pizza onto Charles Terner's plate.

In September the opener was a volley- ball game followed by a picnic at the Hol- low. In October an "Apple Fest" party with cider, doughnuts, popcorn, and, of course, apples. Thanksgiving time brought the tradi- tional dinner with 68 persons feasting in the private dining room. And the first se- mester closed with an "After Finals Pizza Party." The 16 pizzas disappeared quickly. A relaxing evening with table games just for the adults followed. In February MSF went fancy with a Valentine's Day Banquet. A dinner was Catered in at 35.00 per couple! And a pro- fessional musician fBeckyj was hired. In March the student body witnessed the annual PHT fPush Hubby Throughj honor chapel for the wives. Gary Grimes made the floor shake with his piano solo "Walk On," and Don Kidd brought a memorable devotional on unusual and valiant Biblical women, not unlike the wives of the graduating seniors. Also in March there was a "Gym Day" purely for exercise. And in April an Ice Cream Social with Disney videos provided fun for the whole family. jim fBobJ Lenardson, president, says, "I had the pleasure of working with a good group of people. They were energetic and conscientious about their responsibil- ities." The other officers were Gary Grimes, vice-president, Lana Heinsman, secretaryg and Buckley Watson, treasurer. ii I i ,f-fx.

During the bas- ketball season, 9 cheerleaders and the Fal- con led the fans in cheers to support the team as they played. Often, the 10 cheer- ing team out-cheered the crowd with their volume and enthusiasm. Weekly practice helped the 9 cheer- leaders synchronize 'their cheers and moves. "It was a lot of work, but it was worth it. I knew what I was getting into when I became a cheerleader," said Kevin March. Some of the cheerleaders had been cheerleaders in high school, but others tried it for the first time this year. Both Kevin March and Alan Eicher agreed that they joined the cheerleading squad be- cause it was something totally different from anything they had done before. "I wanted to be a cheerleader because it was something completely different," said March. "I had wanted to be a cheerleader before but didn't have a chance," said Eicher. A few of the cheerleaders occasionally felt self-conscious. "In cheerleading, you could make a fool out of yourself and it was ok," said March. Throughout the season, the cheer- leaders grew to appreciate each other and became friends. They learned some things about interpersonal relationship skills. "I learned a bit about give and take-com- promising," said March. Sometimes, the squad consisting of Andrea Voisard, Michelle Crawford, Tina Roussos, Kim Parker, Alan Eicher, Melo- dy Blevins, Lisa Kelley, Ken Matteson, and Kevin March were able to outnumber the crowd in their school spirit and enthu- siasm for the game of basketball.

SMF Creates Awareness Creating a general increase in mission awareness was the main goal of the SMF committee this year. According to presi- dent Bruce Cluckie, the SMF organization met this goal. "It's been one of the most exciting things we've seen," said Cluckie. Several activities were sponsored by SMF during the year. A'missions movie was shown in the Hollow, two concerts of prayer were organized, Mandate, Thurs- day prayer lunches led by different people, Adopt-a-Missionary program, In Fo- cus conference, JTS exchange, and the double Christmas program were some of the SMF activities. According to Cluckie, these programs helped create an awareness on campus. "God's spirit was working in people who wanted to be used by Him," he said. "He is calling people to be more willing to serve in another culture." Cluckie admits that not all people are called to go overseas. "Some people are called to be missionaries to the people around them. There are more opportuni- ties than what we normally think. We have to learn to see the needs around us," he said. "I think SMF developed a positive in- fluence on campus and motivated people to get more involved and become more open to missions," said SMF member Mary Brinson. During the year, SMF did several things to try to raise moneyf The money that they raised went to support students for sum- mer missions. Selling homemade carmel- corn was one way that they raised money. They also collected several offerings dur- ing Chapels. A campus-wide missions awareness was developed by the efforts of SMF. it C' if. 1 l tx . e ' 4 ,ty -in fl?

Eddie Reynolds supervises the security team which he organized Security on Patrol The moon shines in the dark sky, cast- ing shadows across the campus. A crackle breaks the silence and someone says, "Lexington secure, over." In the shadows stands a man wearing a badge, carrying a walkie-talkie and a large flashlight. He is a security guard making his rounds on cam- pus. The security team was organized at the beginning of second semester by Eddie Reynolds. The team consisted of Tim Artz, Kevin Estep, Chuck Follrner, Ken Matteson, Kevin Plank, Alan Reffey, and Greg Shultz. The group worked in pairs for four hour shifts during the night. One guard would walk the grounds or drive the security van, checking doors and park- ing lots while the other would stay in Witmer to log in entries and control the walkie-ralkie. - According to Reynolds, the security .. 'sq U-, . team has helped eliminate vandalism and safety threats. "Security has measurably cut down the number of people using our campus as a place to park. Since it was organized, there have been no serious van- dalism or threats and attacks," he said. "I am very proud of them." Working security was demanding phys- ically. "Security has been a challenge physically because I'd only get three hours of sleep," said Ken Matteson. The first night that security was on pa- trol, some students decided to test thern. "We nailed them," said Matteson. Reyn- olds had prepared the team by having an initial training meeting. After that, he checked up on their progress with period- ic meetings. When a crackle aiid a voice are heard in the shadows, the security team is on pa- trol. .. ,Xt u if 1- . is-f V "5-. Xi ii ,v I I ell' ,H I xi? 6 l 'ff' L.

The drama troop, His Company, performed this play as well as a five scene play entitled "In Spire Of." This play was based on the book of james and exemplified different characteristics. "Its focus was on how God can minister through us in spite of what we do-like gossip," said actress jacala McGrew. The group traveled around Indiana, Ohio, and part of Michigan three out of four weekends throughout the yeanjoyce Klay directed the troop under the supervi- sion of faculty director Sonja Strahm. One of the things that McGrew en- joyed about traveling with His Company was the different kinds of churches they were able to observe. Dave McDeavitt en- joyed seeing God at work within the group. "It has been exciting to see God confirm certain gifts in people with direc- tions for their future. I've gotten a clearer " o Wa direction for my future overseas." In between performances and during traveling, the members had time to get to know each other better, have some fun, and do some homework. "It was always' challenging to try to get homework done," said McDeavitt. McGrew laughed when she remembered one lady that she stayed with overnight decided to read ja- cala and Lori a bedtime story. During their travels, Klay was in charge of the group. 'joyce has done a good job. She maintains her poise very well and is very clear with directions. The group has enjoyed getting to know her little by lit- tle," said McDeavitt. Although the travels of His Company throughout the year were "No Way Easy," the group learned more about themselves and each other.5"It was a real learning experience," said McGrew.

The Chorale, led by jay Platte, met twice a week to practice for one hour. Before a performance, they practiced for one and a half hours. The members re- ceived one year of Christian Service credit for performing in the group, but couldn't get any more credit after that amount. Chorale traveled most Sundays and some Saturdays throughout the year. For singer Lydia Steele, the time was well spent. "I learned a lot about music and reading music-a lot, lot more," she said. The members pointed to different as- pects of the year as a highlight, but most of them agreed that the home concert was important. "The home concert was a lot of fun because we did it for people that we knew and we did a really good job," said oncerts with Chorale Steele. Throughout the year, the members of Chorale got to know more about each other. "I got to know the Chorale mem- bers really well and I felt like we were a big family. Everyone was really supportive of each other's problems and I enjoyed the time when we prayed together. We also learned a lot about each other from the testimonies we gave in concerts," said An- gie Pursley. At times during the year, many of the members would be sick but would still have to perform. It was during these times that some saw God's help. "It was amaz- ing to see what He did for us and our voices to make it through the weekend and the performances," said Pursley, While getting to know each other bet- ter from testimonies and travels, the Cho- rale was able to minister to many people.

Ten "angelic" members ofthe Choral Union are featured during a Youth Conference performance. Fun in the Sun Beach balls were flying along with ftis- bees and footballs. A bright sun hung in the background. The stage was full of people dressed in Hawaiian shorts and T- shirts. They were the Choral Union and they were performing. - This scene took place at Youth Confer- ence where the Choral Union entertained the audience with a musical. This musical was one of the two performances that the Choral Union participated in. "The musi- cal was a blast and we had a lot of fun producing it," said member Angie Purs- ley. "Watching Cindy Kennedy, Lisa Stal- ley, and Mary Ann Burkey get the bird dance together was hysterical," she added. The Choral Union had four weeks to put the musical together and memorize the songs. "It was an impossible feat but we made it," said Pursley. In addition to the musical, Choral Union also performed in The Messiah at Christmastime. "I learned to appreciate Baroque music Cfrom MESSIAI-IJ," said Michelle Wagler. "THE MESSIAH was the first time I had really performed classi- cal music with orchestrationj' said Scot Wilson. The Choral Union was directed by jay Platte. "He's really good. He expects and demands the very best. He stretches you and he makes people use everything they've been given," said Wilson. At times, the Choral Union members were tired and were ready to stop. "A lot of us were dead on our feet while perform- ing," said Pursley. But according to her, there were benefits. "It gave us a picture of what real performing is like," she said. They did have some fun in the sun. l I' The Choral Union has some fun during the musical "Choose" Dan "Elvis" Zehr attracts some fans with his singing.

Commitment was the key to the band this year, according to director Dana Collins. "One of the great- est characteristics of obedience to Christ is commitment," said Collins. The band was composed of 26 mem- bers who met together to do something that they enjoyed. "Band is a lot of fun because it's performing, and performing is a lot of fun," said meinber Kevin March. The concert band had two major per- formances during the year. They had a home concert at Christmas when they played favorite Christmas carols. Also, they played at the annual Pops 'n Pizza concert. There they had a little more fun with their music and played some pieces from PDQ Bach. They also played the theme from "My Fair Lady" and Mus- sorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain." "You can goof offa lot in band. Dr. Wes Have Them Committed is a real trip. Dr. Wes in band is not the same as Dr. Wes in classroom," said March. To prepare for these concerts, the band had to have regular practices. "How we serve the body of Christ will be character- ized through a wise, honest, and faithful practice of these talents," said Collins. "My experiences with the band this year have strengthened these convictions more than any other year," he added. The band was made up of a combina- tion of students, faculty, and alumni under Collin's direction. They were given a vari- ety of styles of music to perform through- out the year. This combination of band members and variety of music required commit- ment during the year to prepare for the performances. K , 1 s' Y' I I .

These six people were organized by the Christian Service depart- ment under the supervision of joy Getig to minister to local churches throughout the year. The group, His Design, was organized at the beginning of the year and started touring in September. In May, the group quit for summer vacation. Beth Cotter helped organize the group and choose the songs. She was responsible for directing the group during the year. She contacted Eddie Rivera and asked him to be the sound man for the group. "Beth asked me to be the sound man be- cause I had previous experience. So I prayed about it and decided to join," said Rivera. The group sang contemporary Chris- tian songs such as "All Hail King jesus." According to singer Kathy Kulp, God Singing His Design blessed their efforts in many churches. "We had many people saved at our con- certs," she said. His Design also had some problems in their travels. One day after loading the van, Beth started to close the door and it fell off the hinges in her hand. Another time, they got lost on their way to some people's house. "We got stuck in a corn- field," said Kathy laughingly. Rivera told of a time when he couldn't get any of the sound equipment to work so he skipped supper to try to fix it. A few minutes before performing, he got part of it to work. "Afterwards, they all bought me a McDonald's because I had to skip sup- per," he said. The CS performing group, His Design, had a combination of both rewarding and unpleasant times on tour. "But it was a lot of fun," said Rivera.

These are some of my favorites. I never missed one basketball game the whole season and I got in on a lot of the other games throughout the year." "Well, then you should enjoy some of the stories and pictures found in this section of the yearbook." "I'm sure I will. I especially enjoyed the awards ceremonies that each sport had at the end of the season." Basketball player, Brenda Cochran, strains in an effort to tip the ball to Loretta Miller during the starting jump ofa home game. Men's Basketball coach, Steve Morley, gives specific offense instructions to the team during a time-out. "Did you know that there are a couple of pages in here for the athletic awards? You should check them out." "Yeah, I think I will. I wonder if they got some good shots of Coach Morley since this was his last year with us." "I think that they did get some. Right here is one shot of him and the guys during a game." "The Volleyball team was looking pretty sharp too." "Turn to page 84 if you want to see them." While the referee keeps track of the seconds, Loretta Miller prepares to gain a point from a foul shot. Basketball player, Mel Zumbrun, jumps into the air to set up a shot during a game against Grace College. Volley to Score Nine girls huddled together before the game. They shouted "Imua!" before breaking out ofthe huddle. Imua is the Hawaiian word for "forward," according to player LouAnn Adams, "This Cimuaj characterized the posi- tive spirit of anticipation and moving on," said head coach Deb Rupp. Six of the nine players were first year play- ers, "We did have a young team and a number of inexperienced players," said Rupp. Ac- cording to Rupp, a highlight ofthe season for the girls was winning second place at the Regional Tournament. For player Caryn Hol- linger, a highlight of the season for her was the fact that she remained uninjured. "The team was plagued with injuries, Me- lanie fMorganD and I were the only ones who didnt have some kind of injury during the season," said Hollinger. Rupp also added that a week before their first game there was "a badly sprained ankle ofa starter, a broken foot, and a dislocated shoulder. I began to wonder what the rest of the season would hold." Apart from the injuries during the season, many friendships were made among the teammates. "The thing that really stands out the most from this year's .. . season would have to be the friendships that I gained. I think its really special when you can meet other teams and develop lasting friendships," said Sarita Rubrake. As the volleyball team broke their huddle with "imua!" the girls gained experience as well as friendships. . Q s. ' ? ,..

A few fans stood on the sidelines with their umbrellas to watch the soccer team play a home game. The rain didn't stop them that afternoon as they played. According to coach Graham West, the soccer team this year was a young team. "A lot ofthe players had a lot of potential," he said. Most of the players agreed that though they didn't have a winning season in statistics, they learned many skills on and off the field. "We learned a lot as a team as far as work- ing together and having patience," said player Greg Schultz. "I learned how to work with other peoples differences and how to adapt to them." Schultz was one of the new players on the team. Ryan Threlkeld was another new .ve 'U fx -, ,--4-5 f'7N goalie. He said he learned how to "keep a good attitude when other teams weren't try- ing to keep a Christ-like attitude on the field." According to Athletic Director Steve Mor- eley the team improved throughout the sea- son. "They had several holes to fill so I thought they had a good season." West said, "They had a better touch of the ball than when they first came." The players had varying opinions for the highlight of the season. For Threlkeld, the first game was the most important. "I came out late in the season and didn't know what to expect from myself." Even though it rained occasionally during the season, the team of young players learned to work together. . .

Coach Steve Morley based his pre-game devotions on the perseverance theme, "We learned we don't need to retaliate but perse- vere for the Lord is faithful and will reward us for it," said player Rob Witzig. According to Coach Morley, the team was rewarded for their perseverance. "God worked in all of our lives, and we are better equipped to serve Him because of what we went throught this year. That is what FWBC basketball is all about," he said. During the season, Coach Morley an- nounced his resignation.

"We were depressed as a team to think of his not being here anymore, but that's where perseverance came in," said Witzig. Morley has been the coach at BC for 20 years. "I want to thank the Lord for the 20 years of ministry He has allowed me to have," said Morley. The team ended up with a record of6 wins and 16 losses. "Although we did not win as many games as we had hoped to, the season was far from being a failure. Friendships were made, lessons learned, and characters were refined," said Morley. "The closeness of the group was unique," said Witzig, "and we got to know Coach on a deeper level," UU Wifi?

A Learning Experience A learning experience outside of the Class- room. This summarizes the season for the women's basketball team, according to head coach Deb Rupp. "Yes, we did learn basket- ball but much, much more," she said. At awards chapel, each team member had the opportunity to share one thing that she learned from the basketball season. "I learned the value of friendship," said first year player April Bowling. "I learned perseverence in the midst of discouragementf' said Cindy Yeag- ley. "I learned dedication-it takes a lot to get out there and keep going," said Sarita Ru- brake. "I learned about encouragement and building one another up," said Karen Stana- ford. "I learned about attitudes and that a merry heart does make a cheerful counten- ance," stated Loretta Miller. "I learned not to give up too easily," saidjanelle McGinley. "I learned that throughout the hard times we built up a unity between us and Coach," said Brenda Cockran. "I started to learn to be tough even when I feel like dying," said Den- ise Schlatter. Coach Deb Rupp said, "Thanks to each of the young ladies for their efforts and for what they have helped me learn this year." The basketball team learned to keep going even though things weren't always going their way. "You had to encourage the team even when things were rough," said Yeagley. The team was a young team. Five of the players were first-year players. Each person on the team learned something valuable from having stuck it out to the end. 4- f.-.

Courses are designed to compliment churches, missions, Christian schools, hospitals, counseling centers, radio and television studios, and many other areas of occupation. Professor Ray Quan' provided the CMM student with a framework of Biblical con- cepts which will help the students form a foundation for future ministry. "The purpose of the program is to provide students with Business skills and concepts in order for them to work effectively in churches or church- related organizations or other businesses, said Quan. Some students like Buckley Watson havt been interested in a business career for manj years. "Since I've always been interested ii business, I've gravitated towards it as a ca reer," said Buckley. He believes that CMIN fits into every Christian's life because "Chris tians have a responsibility to be good ste wards and should be accountable for thei finances." By offering a variety of courses that "en compass a wide range," according to Quan the concepts and skills required in the variou fields of business can be obtained througl the Christian Ministries Management pro gram. 6 L-7 2 "Vg 15-, MPX '.,3ZN ' ' .Ti sg. lf' Q W , , I ,, 4 .. 5.

"Intrapersonal Psych helps you deal with yourself and your own problems so you can help others," said counseling major Kim De- trempe. "A neat part about the program is how you get to learn about others and your- self at the same time," said counseling profes- sor Carl Sovine. The counseling program, according to So- vine, is set up to provide the majors with a solid foundation of courses. "The degree pre- pares you to get a position after graduation or it prepares you to go on to grad school," he said. "Whatever I decide to do, I have a good background from here," said Detrempe. According to Detrempe, the professors were a strong point in the program. "The professors know what they are talking about and they communicate that well. They make you think through the work so you come out learning a lot. It's really worth it," she said. Sovine included the variety of courses offered as a strength in the program. "We provide a good basis of psychology and theology for working with individuals which is the unique- ness in the program. Other schools just give you psychology," he said. The counseling program was made up of a combination of classes that focused on self help, psychology, and theology. -sf 4 5 i Z ...nom -ailin 5 1 7 J Christian Counseling major Gail Nolte takes some time after chapel to study for her next class.

UP ractical Program Working in church administration, teach- ing in the church, working for a curriculum company, directing youth clubs, and organiz- ing camps are just a few career possibilities that the Christian Education major prepared its students to do. According to department head Dr. Ster- ling Demond, versatility in training is impor- tant. "Versatility is not only important, it's our product-what we prepare our students for," said Demond. Christian Ed. major Ke- vin Plank said, "ir tcm cdnia open an innas of doors in a church." Many courses offered in the program deal with working with children. Dennis Doran said that he enjoys working with children. "Most people are saved when they are little which is an encouraging fact when you are working with kids." In addition to the classes that deal with children are the classes such as C.E. of Youth that deal with teens. "In C.E. of Youth you learn how to establish a youth ministry and how to find out where the needs are," said Plank. A requirement for all C.E, majors is Audio Visual Lab. Dr. Doug Barcalow taught the students how to mount pictures and run ma- chines. "AV was my favotite because it en- couraged people who aren't artistic to still be neat," said Doran. By offering training in working with chil- dren, youth, and adults, C.E. prepares its stu- dents for various careers. vi it 7 "rf .ie " PQYRTNT' ' ' N qui U J oo f WN .Q Q'-Q., Mlm Bw' 0, Music HW- ' . .rl ,t N .., - , . r - . ,A, sr,,r..v. . ..

The kids listen carefully as the teacher introduces their new student teacher who smiles, clutching a notebook. It is the first day of school and a student has become a teacher. The student teaching aspect of the elemen- tary education program was supervised by professor Ted Nickel. He said, "Some stu- dent teachers often surprise me. Some stu- dents who I don't think will do well often excel in teaching." The elementary education major is a flexi- ble degree, according to student Ed Irmeger. "I feel what they prepare you for will help you in whatever you do because you teach in some way the rest of your life." Irmeger says that what he has learned in the program has already helped him work with children during the summer months. One aspect of teaching that is stressed in the elementary education program is lesson plans, according to major jessica jenkins. "I have learned that lesson plans are going to be very important and how much preparation goes into teaching," she said. "The teachers fin the programj work hard on application and they give us many opportunities to go out and be in a school for practicum," said Irmeger. Thus, the student teacher can be prepared to face the class that first day. Elementary Ed. major Lori Wyatt practices her tree climbing talents, a favorite pastime for many kids.

Most of the students in the missions major agreed that the program gave them a balance as well as an expanded world view.

Some of these sounds might have included trumpet, drums, voice, organ, or guitar. Most of the people practicing in those rooms were music majors. Much of the majors' time was spent in practice to prepare for a special in chapel, a public appearance, or for class the next day. Most agreed that the practice time was bene- ficial. "Having private voice lessons with Marlene Everson has helped me a lot," said Alan Eicher. "I've improved so much with my range and quality." Many music majors could also be seen singing softly to themselves while directing is 'Q f.. be uc, V I F ,af .JZ -' an imaginary crowd with their batons. They were applying some of the techniques they learned in Conducting class. One of the strong points in the Music program, according to Eicher, was the facul- ty. "They're dedicated to helping us succeed and they have helped me a lot in my own music skills," he said. In addition to specialized music classes, the majors were also taught music theory and music history. A class called "Music Litera- ture of the Church" studied music of the church and its history. While walking down the halls of Founders, a person could hear the sounds of different music majors practicing their skills.

Pastor jim Leichliter studies to receive his degree in Pastoral Ministries. Pastoral Ministries major Ron Williams shares a message from the Word during the chapel series of student speak- ers. UH Pastors Prepare Preaching isn't all that there is in shepherd- ing a church. The Pastoral Ministries majors discovered throughout the year the different things involved in the pastorate. They were taught interpersonal relationship skills. Some classes focused on the students per- sonal life and areas of strengths and weak- nesses. "I learned to see some of the things I need to work on before becoming a pastor," said Chuck Pollmer. It was a common sight to see several PM. majors gathered around the coffee machine discussing theological issues after Chapels and between classes. As a break from lectures, Pastor David Biberstein sometimes had the class partici- pate in roleplays to help the students see dif- ferent situations. "They Croleplaysj helped me see what to do and what not to do in certain situations," said Follmer. Throughout the year, several Pastoral Min- istries seniors were given the opportunity to preach in chapel. One chapel was set aside for the majors to expand on the various names of God. Each student chose one name to talk about. Also, they were given opportunities to practice preaching in class. A combination of lectures, roleplays, inter- personal instruction, and discussions contrib- uted to the Pastoral Ministries majors' educa- tion throughout the year. Another contribution to the program was the oppor- tunities they had to preach. 'C 0 XNK l U Individuals "When are we going to Hnd the individual portraits in this book?" "We've come to that section right here-the People section." "So here's where we go to find out what kind of individuals made up B.C. this year." "Yes, and we can find pictures of our friends, too."

Coach, your ministry has been twofold. First, you have shown us the importance of keeping spiritually fit. You have led the teams in prayer and devotions, patterning a Christ- like lifestyle for others. You have emphasized Christ in everything you do. You have told your teams as well as others to do everything to the glory of God. Second, you have shown the importance of staying physically fit. You have patterned your life and your philosophy after I Cor. 6:19 and have shown others the importance of keeping your body a temple for the Holy Spirit. For this ministry and for your friendship, Coach, we thank you. To you and Kay: Num- bers 6:24-26. AM., ,ix 1 -., yi 91 Q 4 E . ,, C' iw. A 1 , r, w 935 1 "W "" ' ' ' ?s K 2 xii.
