Appalachian Bible College is pleased to welcome Tim and Erin Rowe to our faculty.
With an extensive background in pastoral, administrative, and Christian school ministry, the Rowes bring a great deal of experience and passion for discipleship. They describe themselves as "thoroughly West Virginians" and say this move was "the natural next step of God's leading us on a path He has chosen for us."
Mr. Rowe notes, "My heartbeat is to train others to be more like Christ and serve Him as a godly example of a servant leader."
"I love being around young people and talking to them about ministry," adds Mrs. Rowe.
This year, besides serving as Registrar, Mr. Rowe will teach History & Philosophy of Education and Adolescent Growth & Development, while Mrs. Rowe teaches several of the English classes. The Rowes have two sons and a daughter.
As missionaries with Appalachian Bible Fellowship, the Rowes seek prayer and financial supporters. Request a prayer card when you email firstname.lastname@example.org. Become a donor at abc.edu/giving.
