Several dozen local residents have been participating in the Grantsville Bible Institute during the past year. The Institute is completing its first year at the Victory Baptist Church near Grantsville. The goal of the Institute has been to teach men and women techniques and truths in delivering the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Dr. John Powell, a native of Calhoun and President of the Bible Institute, has been teaching Homiletics I, the art of teaching and preaching the gospel. Dr. Powell's colorful delivery of his own messages and teaching of how to deliver a sermon has built confidence in his students. Dr. Powell comes to Calhoun from Wadsworth, Ohio two or three times a month to teach.

Dr. Myron Guiler, founder of Marietta Bible College, has been teaching the Gospel of John and Dr. Jim Newton, Pastor of the Rymer Road Baptist Church in Wadsworth, Ohio, has been teaching the Pentateuch - the first five books of the Bible. Their teaching has made the Bible come alive.

The instructors of the local course have agreed to return for a fall semester. For further information call Pastor Mike Worf at 354-7780. The Grantsville Bible Institute are accredited courses by the Marietta Bible Institute. (Information submitted by Shari Johnson)
