The Book of Acts—Life In the Spirit

Acts 1:1-3

Just a few weeks ago at our General Conference (September 26-29, 2010) in Houston, Texas Bible College hosted a reunion of sorts for all TBC alumni. Part of the program allowed all of the past presidents of the college to address those who attended. I was particularly struck by the comments of former president James Hughes who was there in the late ‘90’s after I had graduated. He gave a brief recount of the trends that started some 40 years ago with the beginning of the church growth movement.
