What do Texas, Utah, Ohio, Korea, and West Virginia have in common? They are states (and a country) in which young ladies who graduated from Fairhaven Christian Academy and went on to graduate from Fairhaven Baptist College this past May are going to teach in Christian schools. Praise the Lord! Please pray for Megan Brater (Utah), Sarah Olson (Ohio), Rachel McNabb (Texas), Jennifer Gentry (Korea), and Sara Dupre (West Virginia) as they begin teaching in Christian schools this August.
This year's Preaching Conference was a very special time of Biblical preaching and sincere fellowship among many pastors, missionaries, and laymen. Traditional, powerful music complimented the convicting messages brought by Herb Hutchinson, Ron Royalty, Ernest Gambrell, Courtney Lewis, and Randy Starr. It was wonderful to see many alumni here. We are already making plans for next year, which will be the 40th anniversary of Fairhaven Baptist College. Please make plans to join us April 23-27, 2017. Dr. Royalty gave a short challenge at our Alumni Breakfast.

Pastor Williams also spoke at our annual Stewardship Banquet. Pastor Williams at the Stewardship Banquet [...]

The Lord blessed with another wonderful graduation service. This year Philip Bishop, pastor of Lighthouse Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia, was our commencement speaker.
