Dutch newspaper reporting on ETF’s growth

A major milestone in the history of the ETF (Evangelische Theologische Faculteit, where Jack teaches): we welcome 70 new students when school starts on Sept 24, which brings the total number of ETF students to over 200! Rejoice with us in God’s gracious provision.

This is remarkable, since most Bible colleges and theological schools in the Netherlands and Belgium experience a decrease in students. ETF’s evangelical stance, and its thorough academic program, attract many young people who want to dig deep into the Scriptures to discover the foundations of their beliefs.

In addition, a growing number of students are in their 30’s and 40’s. Their service in previous jobs leads them to desire further depth in their understanding of and skills for the gospel ministry.

We are glad for the privilege of teaching so many students to prepare a next generation of Christian leaders in Europe. Please pray with us that we be faithful in our teaching, and that the students will grow in their dedication to serve Christ.
