In Utah this summer, an ABC senior is interning with church planters, serving through children's ministries, evangelism, and tech support. Pray for opportunities to make contacts and build relationships with unbelievers. #ABCsummermissions
Worth another listen: the Chorale sings a familiar hymn in a new a cappella arrangement.
Meet 2013 graduate Kossi Eklou (second from left). After earning a B.A. in Bible/Theology and Pastoral Ministry from ABC, Kossi went on to seminary and met his wife. Returning to West Africa, he founded an organization that trains servant-leaders to reach their communities with the gospel. About 200 have gone through this training since its inception in 2017. Over 400 children have heard the gospel through VBS programs, and two churches are being planted. To God be the glory!
Kossi and his family are pictured with Dr. Jonathan and Sarah Rinker during a recent visit; Dr. Rinker was Kossi's pastor during his years at ABC.
Outdoor adventures, including rappelling, are going on all summer long through our Alpine Ministries. Each one provides an opportunity for spiritual impact.

Katie and Eric both began serving in the Admissions office within weeks of receiving their B.A. diplomas in May. They both did ministry internships last summer (Guam and Minneapolis), and they are both getting married in October to classmates they met at ABC.
During their time as students, both grew in their love for Scripture. Hosea is one of Katie's favorite books of the Bible because "it's a picture of God's redeeming and unfailing love." Eric likes John chapter 15 because "it's a good reminder that apart from God, we are nothing."
