$50,000 Matching Gift for EOY Campaign

Have you ever given a financial gift and asked God to multiply it?  On numerous occasions, people have asked the Lord to take what little they could give and use it to meet the need.  God has a way of taking what we can give and multiplying it to meet the need.

A friend of the college has made a special offer during this year’s end of the year giving campaign.  Beginning on Giving Tuesday, December 3, and going through the end of December, this individual has pledged to match every dollar given to ABC for the EOY campaign up to $50,000.  What does this mean?  If you give a gift of $25, it will be doubled by the matching gift!

Would you pray about helping ABC reach the goal of $125,000 by the end of December?  Starting on Giving Tuesday you can double your gift to train God’s servants for God’s service.

Just visit giving.ambassadors.edu and click on the EOY tab to make a difference in the lives of our students! Click here to learn more specifics about the 2019 EOY Campaign.

All gifts to the 2019 EOY are tax-deductible.

2019 End of Year Campaign

The holiday season is upon us! Thanksgiving and Christmas are times when families come to visit and love is expressed.  It is also the time when Bible college students are finishing their fall semester and preparing for the spring.

At the close of each calendar year, we depend on friends and local churches to help us financially so we can keep our tuition rates affordable for our students.  This year is no exception.  Watch the video to learn more about the 2019 EOY offering and pray about giving a gift to ABC.

2019 Missions Conference at ABC

World evangelization is of the greatest importance at ABC.  On October 28 through November 1, ABC will be hosting its annual missions conference.  This year’s featured theme is “I Love To Tell The Story,” and the speaker for the week is veteran missionary Ron White.  Brother White has spent the majority of his ministry in the country of Japan and now travels across the country and around the globe in spreading the Gospel.

The 9:50 am chapels will be streamed live at ambassadors.edu, YouTube, and on the college Facebook page.  Each service will have a missionary testimony, ministry presentations, great music, and preaching on missions.  You will not want to miss these services.

Missionaries will be challenging the students on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights at 6:30 pm during the Mission Prayer Band sessions.  The week will conclude with a banquet on Friday night featuring Brazilian food and a question and answer time with the missionaries in attendance.

Here are a few reasons why you should watch at least one service . . .

  1. Every Christian needs to spread the Gospel, and hence is a missionary.
  2. God may want you to go as a missionary to a foreign field.
  3. Every Christian should be involved in the missionary endeavor (giving, going, praying, etc.)
  4. You need to stop listening to “bad news” and be encouraged by the “good news” of the Gospel.

Not Ashamed – 2019-20 Theme

When the students returned to campus in August, they quickly learned of the new theme for the 2019-20 school year.  The theme “Not Ashamed” is taken from Romans 1:16 and was the subject of the concluding message of the opening revival.

Why Have An Opening Revival?

It used to be commonplace in Christian colleges to begin the school year with an opening revival.  Sad to say, this practice has diminished over the years.  Some schools have shortened their opening meetings while others have eliminated the practice altogether.  Why does a Bible college like Ambassador have opening revivals?  Here are three reasons to consider:

There is no better way to start a college year than drawing near to God.  When students come to ABC as a freshman, they experience a number of emotions. Some experience homesickness.  Others experience anxiety because of their unfamiliarity with a college environment.  The cure for these emotions and the many others is drawing closer to God.  God promised to draw near to us when we draw near to Him (James 4:8).

Revival is needed in our churches and our country.  Too often, Christian colleges have become scorners of revival instead of advocates for it.  Our next generation of preachers and Christian workers must have a hunger for righteousness and a sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. 

The preaching of the Word of God can change lives.  God has promised to bless His Word, and on numerous occasions in the Bible, He worked powerfully through the preaching of the Word.  The Bible is a light for our path (Psalm 119:105) and a sword that pierces our soul (Hebrews 4:12).  The preaching of the prophets brought many under conviction, and the preaching of the Apostles led many to Christ.  In a day that has minimized preaching, we need Bible preaching more than ever.

The fall opening revival wil be held August 26-30. Evangelist Rich Tozour will be preaching each morning at 10 am and Dr. Alton Beal will be preaching in the evenings (except Wednesday night) at 7 pm.  All services can be watched at ambassadors.edu or on the college’s YouTube channel.  Your prayers for this special week are much appreciated.
