Celebrating 30 Years of Ministry at Heritage College & Seminary
Since London Baptist Bible College & London Baptist Seminary and Central Baptist Seminary merged in 1993, Heritage College & Seminary faithfully serves the church by equipping men and women for life and ministry. On Saturday, October 21, that priceless heritage was celebrated by staff, faculty, and past graduates during a 30th Anniversary Banquet.
Current and former staff and faculty, close friends of Heritage, and graduates had the opportunity to reconnect and reflect on the impact of the school on their lives through a program that celebrated the history of the schools throughout the evening.
The crowd enjoyed watching Drs. David G. Barker, Barry Howson, and Doug Thomson reflect on their time serving at Heritage and the impact it made on their lives and the lives of their students over a series of videos. Participants also enjoyed a time of worship led by this year’s One80 worship team—a musical group comprised of current Heritage students.
One of the many highlights of the evening was the opportunity to hear about the history of the school’s formation and the heart behind the ministry of Heritage from its two past Presidents. Rev. Marvin Brubacher shared a history of how Heritage College & Seminary came into being, which he described as a story that repeatedly pointed to God’s faithfulness to the ministry through all its ups and downs.
Chairman of Heritage’s Board of Directors Rev. Doug Blair also took to the stage to celebrate and honour the ten years of ministry of Chancellor Dr. Rick Reed. Dr. Reed then concluded the evening preaching from the Book of Ezra about Heritage’s continued commitment to training and equipping future leaders to serve the church as pastors, missionaries, and healthy members of the local church.
As we continue to celebrate how God has worked in the lives and hearts of many students over the past 30 years, we ask that you join us as we continue to pray for Heritage. Please pray that God will continue to send more students to the college and seminary to be equipped for life and ministry for years to come.
