Dan, so good to hear from you today.
Howard S. has been on the staff at Asbury Seminary for many, many years. They, of course, welcome believers from all backgrounds. Which is how it should be.
Concerning the founder if the school: He was the editor of the “Pentecostal Herald” for 20 years. Reminds me of you... :)
In 1923, Henry Clay Morrison began Asbury Theological Seminary with a class of three students and fashioned a seal for the Seminary which audaciously reads “The Whole Bible for the Whole World.” Nearly 100 years later, those three students number in the tens of thousands with a second full campus in Orlando, Florida. Asbury Seminary graduates flourish in every state, on every continent, in every time zone, reaching the world through evangelism, missions, church planting, preaching, teaching, and counseling. Today, the sun never sets on Asbury Seminary graduates. Asbury Theological Seminary was founded more than 80 years ago “to prepare and send forth a well-trained, sanctified, Spirit-filled, evangelistic ministry” in order to spread scriptural holiness around the world. Asbury Seminary continues to hold to this mission, providing holistic ministerial preparation as an interdenominational institution. From Wikipedia.
Asbury, by the way, up to a few years ago was a sponsor of the oldest Christian Music Festival. Ichthus Festival in Wilmore KY. Years ago, I loaded 4 of my kids up in the VW van and told them we were going on a road trip. At the Festival, there were more than 20,000 in attendance. I heard or saw none of these youth smoking or drinking or misbehaving in any way. I was very touched....
The Body of Christ - what a beautiful thing it is. I am so glad to be a part of it.
