Majoring In The Minor Prophets...

Bear Valley’s Annual Lectureship was the highlight of the weekend. The focus of this year’s lectureship was the second half of the Minor Prophets in the Old Testament. The speakers taught incredible lessons that demonstrated a depth of their study with an application for the church today. Additionally, the fellowship among the hundreds of Christians who attended the lectureship furnished a small taste of what we anticipate in heaven. If you would like to listen to the lectures, please visit the following link:

The lectureship banquet is a special time that has become a traditional part of the lectureship each year. During the banquet, time is dedicated to discussing the current work in Denver and within the extension program. The opportunity to learn about the growth and development of the program is exciting for everyone present. 

The present work and future plans for the extension program continue to highlight the work at Bear Valley. Two new schools started this year and two new schools are set to begin right after the first of the year. Additionally, a number of locations are under consideration for new schools during 2016. News about the development of the extension program is getting out and contacts continue to come through the office. We look forward to the future.

The reports this week share news about the present nature of the work. We pray you are encouraged about the growth God continues to give in the work. Please remember to pray for each location and the progress of the overall development of the program.

Now on to this week’s incredible reports...
