Hail, Fort Wayne Bible College! Our Alma Mater true,
Our heritage is knowledge of Christ and life anew.
Our mission is salvation, Through God's redeeming Word,
To ev'ry tribe and nation His truth must be unfurled.
Hail, Fort Wayne Bible College! Where hearts are set aflame,
With zeal for loyal service, In Christ the Saviour's name.
Where youth receive the vision of more abundant life,
Of holy dedication for liberating strife.
God bless our Bible College! Her halls enshrine with light:
Her teachers bless with courageg Her cause endue with might
God keep her sons and daughters in faithfulness and love,
One day to serve the Master Eternally above.

Learning To Live Vlhth 0thers
Remember when you decided that
you were going to come to college?
You started thinking about all the
things you were going to bring to deco-
rate your room. Well, what happened
when you got here and moved into your
room? Did you begin to realize that
maybe not all your plans were going to
work out? Maybe you couldn't deco-
rate or change the furniture around be-
cause it might inconvenience your roo-
Or maybe you had to stop doing
something that you never thought was
wrong or really had any convictions
about. But another person in the dorm
thought it to be very offensive because
of her different background. The key to
making the best out of dorm life was to
make adjustments and to respect oth-
er people's opinions and convictions.
You've learned that as a family in the
Lord you may not always agree with
another person but you should respect
that person and her point of view.

Yes, it's another one of those times in
the semester when one frantically
cleans her room, or should it be said
that the mess is temporarily some-
place else. ln case you haven't
guessed, it's time to get ready for
Open Dorm. Ah, yes, Open Dorm is
when members of the opposite sex get
to come and see rooms, halls, and
lounges that are usually "off Iimits."

Working Together As A Unit
Although we may not always realize
it, wings are an essential part of one's
dorm experience. Wings have several
functions. One of the main ones is to
serve as available support groups for
sharing and encouragement.
Also through wing life together one
can learn to love others who have dif-
ferent personalities and tempera-
Wing meetings sometimes serve as
fun times to blow off steam after the
pressures of homework. And then
there are the special times together in
prayer and praise. Also social occa-
sions off campus with brother wings at
Bandidos, ChiChi's, Power's or the
bowling alley bring back good memo-

Here I sit year after year in the

professors have books reserved on
their shelves for students who need to
do research. Theology books are pop-

all day with many readers. Encyclope-

more than I do! I may not have a great

Dr.Fred Van Dyke returned to deliver
the Baccalaureate address at the re-
quest of the senior class. Van Dyke
taught the science classes from '83 to
December of '87. He will be remem-
bered for his dedication to ecology
and God's Word and his brilliance in
integrating the two. Students will also
remember the field trips to Ausable
and many other places to study the
environment and to marvel at what God
is doing in the natural world.
Van Dyke's words to the seniors were
based on I Cor. 15:58. "Build your min-
istry on a hard-headed love," he said,
"and you will see God change lives.
Loyality to God's work without love for
people makes ministry very hard
Van Dyke and his family now live in Red
Lodge, Montana, where he works as a
wildlife biologist for the State.

People sit and listen more than they participate in
music these days. The children and amateurs are
being ignored for the more profitable professional
world of music videos and highly polished touring
groups. This trend seems to run contrary to Biblical
principles. Here we seek to celebrate the variety of
musics possible. Whether music education, perfor-
mance, or church music is the interest of the music
major, there is course work specifically designed to
equip him with the knowledge, skills, and values to
work with people and music. From the beginning em-
phasis is placed on both musicianship and ministry.

Our goal is to prepare people to teach the word of God,
so as to provide a foundation for a person's fulfilling of
the Great Commission of our Lord, which involves mak-
ing disciples of all nationalities by teaching them to
continue keeping everything which the Lord command-
ed us. This thorough knowledge of the Bible is absolute-
ly essential to a person's spiritual growth and health.
- Wes Gerig
Our focus is the integration of theology and psychology. We also are
designing the program to prepare students for graduate studies.
We feel we have breadth for the different types of pas-
toral positions. We also have a heavy emphasis on the
integrating of the theoretical and the practical with lots
of role-playing in class and an eight-hour internship.

At the outset of any project the founda-
tion is the beginning. At the start of the
journey toward a degree, general stud-
ies classes are a must.
Most classes featured guest speakers
and interesting visitors occasionally.
Also field trips added excitement and
fuller understanding of the subjects.
"What's important to me about the
classes at Fort Wayne Bible College is
the special attention that the profes-
sors give to their students. They really
take an interest in the student's stud-
ies and encourage him along," stated
The foundation sets the shape and du-
rability of the outcome.

student who is very much involved in a
C.S. project. Mike has been youth pas-
tor at Northside Missionary Church for
two years. He says that the biggest
pressures that youth face today aren't
the pressures to drink, smoke, or do
drugs: the biggest pressures come
from broken homes or from homes
where Mom and Dad don't get along.
These types of homes cause a lot of
instability in the life of a teenager be-
cause he or she never knows what to
expect at home: thus he may resort to
things such as drinking, drugs, or even
suicide to get rid of that feeling of inse-
Mike's goal for his young people is that
they become stable mature Christians
so that they won't always be on a spiri-
tual roller coaster ride. Mike says of
his C.S. project: "I've realized the
awesome responsibility of leading
These are just a couple of brief reports
on C.S. projects. There are many sto-
ries that go untold which would empha-
size the fact that though C.S. projects
are a requirement for three out of the
student's four years, they are also
great opportunities to serve and learn.

group, made its debut this year under
the direction of Dr. Jay Platte. The 35
versatile musicians not only sang to-
gether as one, but took instrumental
and solo parts as well.
ln addition to the trips in the Fort
Wayne area, there were four weekend
trips: Peoria, Indianapolis, Detroit, and
Mansfield, Ohio. The Detroit one was
especially busy with seven perfor-
mances and constant travel through
The group enjoyed its year of ser-
vice very much. The praise testimonies

After many years of staying in
close contact with BC, Mick Mills
became head coach of the Flacons
in the fall of '87 assisted by Alumni
Director Bill Gerig, "Bill was a great
person to help out in on-campus
matters," says Mick.
Mills attended BC between 1965
and 1970. He played basketball for
I the Flacons all but two of his col-
lege years. Some of Mills' accom-
plishments include being a member
of the All-City Tournament Team
during his sophomore year and be-
ing the city's leading scorer for
most of his senior year, averaging
21 points per game.
After finishing his Master's work
at Indiana University in 1972, Mills
began his teaching career at Linley
Elementary. After five years there,
he taught at Maplewood Elementary
for one year. Currently he teaches
fourth grade at Indian Village
He started his part-time coaching
career in 1978 by helping Coach
Steve Morley with the basketball
program. In 1982 Mills was co-
coach with Kent Fischel during Mor-
ley's sabbatical leave.
Mills says that he enjoys coach-
ing at the Bible College. "Time went
so fast, I looked forward to every
minute of the season. l hope to grow
as a coach and learn some more
technical aspects of the game."
Mills is married and has four chil-
dren - Mike, Eric, Andrew and Les-
lie. In his spare time Mills enjoys
hunting and fishing.
Bill Gerig, men's basketball assistant coach,
works diligently at his Alumni Director's desk.
What makes a successful squad?
"Encouragement-and prayer helps a
lot too when we don't feel like cheer-
ing," said Michelle Crawford. Kim
Parker was the captain of the six-girl
squad this year. "Kim's a good captain
because she's organized and she gets
us motivated to cheer," said Crawford.
The squad showed a lot of spirit and
enthusiasm, entertaining the fans with
cheers like "Uga, Uga, Uga, Uga,
Uga." Lori Wilson said she enjoyed
cheering, but the fans needed to get
more involved. The squad consisted
of Anita Artz, Heather Campbell, Mi-
chelle Crawford, Kim Parker, Misty
Wallen, and Lori Wilson plus that ev-
er-faithful Falcon mascot, Kathy Nem-
eth, who sweated in a furry Falcon
costume for the spirit of the Falcons.

players said that "at the Bible College
success is measured by growth." As
the team shared one thing that they
each were thankful for during the sea-
son, it was evident that each member
had learned many lessons as the sea-
son went on.
The Lady Falcons showed a lot of
hustle and determination as they often
matched up against teams that were
generally bigger than the BC squad.
The Falcons were led in scoring and
rebounding by team MVP Loretta Mill-
er. Miller was also awarded the team's
defensive player of the year award.
Other awards went to Debby Lierman

Bethany Women's dorm, located be-

ill, was a quiet dorm. "The things I real-
ly liked about Bethany most were the
tons of privacy and ample bathroom
space," stated Myra Usher. The
rooms had no attached furniture so the
women were free to put lofts up. One
disadvantage cited by the sixteen resi-
dents was that the hall had no lounge
for male visitors.

Jack of All Trades
Besides a 15 to 17 hour class load to
carry, married students really had to
keep the pace up. It was their respon-
sibility to work either on or off campus,
uphold school requirements such as a
Christian service project, get involved
with their class, and be a parent and!
or spouse all at the same time.
How did theyjuggle all the stress? "lt's
tough." stated junior Craig Martin. "lt
challenges you to rely on the Lord's
strength. lt's easy to get frustrated, so
you have to view it for what it is. 'ln all
your ways acknowledge Him and He
will direct your paths.' Be disciplined.
Schedule your time wisely. Trust in the
Lord. My wife really helps me to keep
things in the right perspective."

Getting It All Together
Being newly married and a student too
has its pluses and minuses.
"I think it's a lot easier being married
because there aren't the bothers of liv-
ing in the dorm. I think it would be hard-
er though if we had kids. My grades
have gone up since I've been married,"
commented Senior Barb Powers.
Some married students have houses
and apartments on or near campus
while others drive in from a distance.
"It's hard to go to school and be mar-
ried at the same time," said Dawn
Cluckieg "I have to be employed more
hours to bring home the money. But, I
love being married. I am willing to
change my schedule to fit my mar-
riage. But I wouIdn't change being mar-

A DORM FULL OF GUYS
WHO BECAME FRIENDS,

Stepping into Schultz Hall for the first
time often brings with it a feeling of
anxiety. "Will I have enough space for
all my stuff? Will there be any privacy
to be alone at times?" But he also won-
ders if he will find friends among the
varied residents. After all, there are
the neat-and-tidy people, the throw-
everything-on-the-floor group, the I-
residents, the l-only-pound-out-WXKE-
and-Stryper groupies, and the don't-
people. But as the year moves on even
the widest opposites become closer
tsometimes even friendsl as the old
walls of Schultz Hall seem to have a
way of bringing the unlikeliest people

Every student has a lew free moments now and then

MORE THAN A GROUP OF
GUYS THROWN TOGETHER,
SCHULTZ HALL BECAME
A PLACE KNOWN AS
A N-NORM DORM
"I wish someone would answer that
stupid phone." "Hey, Ric, you've got a
phone call on an outside line." "Hey,
Kevin Pizza is here." These are
some of the phrases that can be heard
in the halls of Schultz most every night.
This is a typical situation in what col-
lege students call dorm life.

Living in the guys' dorm at FWBC is not
the norm for life in a men's dorm. Life at
Schultz Hall does mean all the regular
dorm happenings such as late-nighters
and extended phone calls to girl-
friends, but it also has an added dimen-
sion. Life at Schultz brings a close-
ness. Not everyone is everyone's best
friend, but there exists an openness
and friendliness not regularly seen at a
guy's dorm. That element of honest
care between a bunch of very different
guys is what makes Schultz the "un-

HOW DOES A RESIDENT
ASSISTANT PLAN ALL THOSE
WEEKLY MEETINGS? WELL,
SOMETIMES HE'S JUST . . .
Wednesday night 10:10 p.m. The
call goes out from the Resident Assis-
tant down the hallway. "Hey - what
do you guys feel like doing tonight'?"
Like at Wendy's there are two choices
- choice A, the fun wing meeting, or
choice B, the spiritual setting. Choice
A offers activities like putt-putt golfing,
going to Bandido's, playing Pictionary
or ordering pizza. Some wings head to
the YMCA to go swimming or spend
time doing something as Brother-Sis-
ter wings. Choice B gives the student
the opportunity to take the Bible to his
R.A.'s room for a time of sharing, sing-
ing and prayer.
You're probably thinking that organiz-
ing a wing meeting is a piece of cake:
. ij. ,
WRONG. Just ask the people who
have this task. Bryan Heindel said, "I
set up my wing meetings to meet the
needs of my guys that week." Another
R.A., Brad Ulick, stated, "The guys in
the wing come up with a lot of interest-
ing things to do. Some are great, some
not so great. l think they come up with
some of this stuff just so they can find
opportunity to embarrass their R.A. in
So as you see, wing meetings aren't
simple five minute creations of the R.A.
These men are expected to create ac-
tivities to keep students interested! In
the future when Wednesday night rolls
around and it's 10:15, remember all of
the work that goes into a wing meeting.

"I anticipate that the building will be
finished by mid-April of 1989 and dedi-
cated at commencement of 1989."
said David Lalka, Vice President for
According to the project proposal, the
Activities Center, a mjajor multi-pur-
pose facility, has 31,000 square feet
providing space for a gymnasium with
seating for 1800, dressing, shower and
restroom facilities, classroom areas,
and offices for faculty and staff.
This building can also be used for large
convocations, civic activities and oth-
er events of area-wide interest, draw-
ing the public to the College, improving
community relations, and generating
support for the school's academic and
The building may also provide excel-
lent facilities for seminars, confer-
ences, and other events, all of which
enhance the quality of education avail-
Lalka explained how ground breaking
with the building funded took place be-
fore the students departed for the sum-
mer: "A number of corporations and
foundations have made this dream a
reality. Major assistance was received
through a S500,000 matching grant
from the Lilly Endowment under the
"Dream of Distinction Competition."
The "Dream of Distinction" was an-
nounced in December of 1986 and pro-
posals were submitted by June 30,
1987. The announcement of the
S500,000 matching grant was re-
ceived September 21. A celebration
was held mid-morning on South Cam-
Chapel, May 5, is held on the west side of South
Campus. The students represent the outside
walls of the new building.

ln 1895 Benjamin P. Lugibihl began Bethany Bible Institute in his home in Bluffton, Indiana. Rev. J.E.
Ramseyer, a young evangelist, became the first principal of the school. After six years the school closed,
but due to the great desire of many for a Bible education, the school was reopened in 1904 under the
auspices of the then young Missionary Church Association. Soon there was the dream of still greater
things. A committee of six formed of J.E. Ramseyer, D.Y. Schultz, William Egle, B.P. Lugibihil, and the Roth
brothers, David and Henry, became the founding fathers. They prayerfully searched out a site on Richard-
ville Road fnow Budisill Blvd.J. The four acres where North Campus now stands cost S1800.
"lt was a large venture of faith to buy land and launch a new school with an infant church to support and
back them. In spite of obstacles and discouragements they gave themselves to the work sacrificially and
poured their lives into the struggling venture of faith. They were rewarded and the school prospered and
F grew and was blessed by God. Fort Wayne Bible College stands today as a monument to their God-given t
-' f,"'V vision, undaunted faith and courageous sacrifice. They are all now among "The cloud of witnesses" who hw
, gif ' have run the race and finished the course." t"A Vine of God's Own Planting" by Jared F. Gerig, pp. 24-25.3
