From the President
A Sense of Place and Service
deally every college and university should have its own physical image, an amalgam of buildings and landscapes that define and celebrate a sense of place; communicate the institution’s purpose, presence, and domain; and generate an image charged with symbolism, graced by history.” (Campus Design, by Richard P. Dober) Recently, we completed the Corban University campus master plan that has as its goal to develop this sense of place and reflect our purpose. It is a 50-year plan that includes the renovation of existing buildings and building many new ones that will be required as we grow in the future. We want to develop a campus that will truly reflect our global mission and our vision to become a highly ranked educational institution in the United States. When we purchased our Salem property in 1969, it had been used as a TB hospital, and it had an odor of one. It took several years of renovation to eliminate this odor. Our goal was to give it the fragrance of a place where students are prepared for service to the Lord through our many programs. Today, in many respects, we’ve accomplished that goal. In the past several years we have constructed new buildings, an amphitheater, walkways, athletic fields, and have made several major renovations and improvements to the campus grounds. The new master plan shows us how to complete the process. We want our students and alumni to be noted as different than alumni of other institutions. They should have a distinct personality focused on serving the Lord. Just as the secular universities have alumni who are distinct, we want ours to have the same confidence. It will be a confidence they are prepared for a life of service—to emulate our mission to make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.
It is our goal that our students and alumni will be as proud of their university as we want to be proud of them. Today, we have 1,245 current students and approximately 9,000 alumni making a difference for Jesus Christ. We have more than 50 undergraduate programs, several master's programs and a doctoral program. In the years ahead we plan to add many more at every level. Although our main campus is in Salem, we also have a very important site currently in Tacoma, Wash. It is our goal to expand our offerings in the greater Seattle area and reach beyond the School of Ministry to include our School of Business, School of Education and Counseling and the School of Professional Studies. We also have a presence in Indonesia, where our international school of education is operating. We have partnered with a large Christian university to train students who will graduate to teach throughout that country. It is a great opportunity to bring the good news of the gospel to tens of thousands of children year after year throughout that large, populous nation. Acts 2:17 states “...your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams.” At Corban, we are young at heart and have a great vision for the university. Then again, we are old enough to dream the impossible. The Lord has truly blessed our endeavor over the past 76 years and we expect the same in the future. As you read this issue’s stories about our faculty, students and alumni living out the gospel around the world, you’ll see, as I do, that we are truly making a difference. Thank you for partnering with us.

Faculty news Professor of English and Humanities Dr. Colette Tennant’s poem Poe and Hepburn was published in the most recent Cloudbank, a literary journal published in Corvallis, Ore. Her poem is based on Poe’s theory that the most poetical topic in the world is the death of a beautiful woman. In spring 2011, Tennant participated in a Cloudbank poetry reading, where she read previously published poetry and sang an original composition. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
In October, Associate Professor of English Dr. Ryan Stark’s Paradise Lost as Incomplete Argument was published in the academic journal 1650-1850: Ideas, Aesthetics, and Inquiries in the Early Modern Era. In April he delivered a paper at the College Composition and Communication Conference in Atlanta, titled, God, the Devil, and Renaissance Writing Instruction. “This is very exciting to me,” Stark said. “Typically, at this level, less than 30 percent of what is turned into a publication actually makes the final cut. I’m honored that my work is being considered and that I’m being asked to present at these amazing places.” ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Is worship music somehow mediating the presence of God? Between Nov. 15 and 17, Associate Professor of Ministries Dr. Kent Kersey presented his research on the topic at the national Evangelical Theological Society meeting in San Francisco. “I showed how many evangelicals erroneously try to use art as a sacramental tool which links the worshipper to God,” he said. “I will argue that using art sacramentally denies the mediating presence of Christ in worship.” ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Dr. Gary Derickson -- On Dec. 1, Professor of Ministry Dr. Gary Derickson will have his own studies included in 1, 2, 3 John of The Evangelical Exegetical Commentary series—one volume in a 44 volume set). His work covers the Johnannine Epistles, 1-3 John, and will first be released in electronic form and then hardback at a later date. For years the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary on the Bible has been a source of valuable information for pastors, scholars, theologians. The commentary is focused on the Bible’s text grammar and syntax, as well as the meaning of words within the Bible. “My approach to the epistles is not unique, but does not follow the prevailing view in recent scholarship,” he said. “I see the epistles as primarily pastoral, with some polemic interjected as it impacts John's pastoral concerns. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
On Oct. 2, Associate Professor of Intercultural Studies Paul Johnson presented his doctoral dissertation in the Emitte Center at Corban’s Salem campus. Throughout the two-hour presentation, he sought to demonstrate that the core of Jesus Christ’s mission was to create holistic disciples who are complete, mature and obedient. During his talk, he spoke about church history and individuals and groups who pursued the fulfillment of this mission and disciple-making movements. He also addressed the writing and perspectives of key contemporary writers on this topic. Throughout his presentation, Johnson took questions from professors, pastors and others. 7

The Wall “Jesus destroyed the wall of hostility; His church must never rebuild it.” Ephesians 2:14 In his book, The Wall, Bruce W. Fong, PhD, ‘73, Ministry, explores the racial divide that separates many churches throughout the nation. “When there is personal selectivity that marks the make-up of a church along racial lines, then there is an appearance that the guests have taken over the prerogative that belongs exclusively to the host,” Fong said in The Wall. “Since every Christian enjoys a new relationship that has been established with Jesus Christ; then every Christian can also enjoy new relations with one another regardless of race. That is the message of the Gospel. This should also be the testimony of the church and all its members.” TheWall is available through www.amazon.com or www.createspace.com. 8

I wanted to learn as much as I could.” He knew learning English could be a path out of poverty and Querette would often trade his lunch, typically his only meal of the day, to learn the language from another boy. By the time he was 14, Querette was noticed by local missionaries with World Hope International, who offered the ragtag teen both food and kindness.

How do we respond when God calls? Editor's note: The gospel is manifested in a number of ways. Our theme for this issue centers on the gospel as characterized by our service. Like many higher education institutions, Corban believes it has a responsibility to bring about change in the world. However, as a Christian university, it is important to clarify that the change is not the result of human effort, but of the divine work of Jesus Christ in the hearts and minds of people. Because of this, we believe the gospel plays a central role in Christian education and guides our educational philosophy. This is succinctly stated in our mission statement: to educate Christians who will make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ. The outcomes revealed in our interaction with alumni show they own the responsibility of having their career and ministry function as one. Discussions with our faculty and alumni revealed more than a dozen exciting stories about faith steps made down previously unexplored paths that quickly became inroads into fruitful ministry opportunities.

-6. N-32. I-19. Bingo! Smiles brighten the faces of the nursing home residents seated in wheelchairs around me, and we all cheer. Scanning the circle, I see friendly competition and laughter, despite severe physical limitations. I think to myself, “Only God could have put me here.” Just a few months earlier, I couldn’t have imagined such a scene. Due to my mother-in-law’s recent health crisis, however, I have become a regular visitor at various health care facilities. Since my husband and I are the only immediate family members in the area, and he works out of state, I am best suited to oversee the situation. At the time, I have no idea it will span nearly 16 weeks. In my opinion, I am absolutely wrong for this assignment. The medical realm has never been my favorite, and I avoid it whenever possible. Just walking the halls of a hospital makes me feel queasy. I repeatedly question God about what He is asking of me. My prayers for help are fervent and frequent. Yet as I pore over Scripture, desperate for encouragement, I notice a pattern. The Lord consistently assigns tasks to people who feel ill-equipped, or who even want to refuse His requests. In other words … my weak stomach is no excuse. Questions andObjections Objections Questions and In Exodus chapters 3 and 4, when God speaks to Moses from a burning bush and tells him about his assignment to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, questions begin immediately. Moses asks, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharoah, and that I should bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” (3:11) “What if they do not believe me or listen to me?” (4:1) Like me, he is full of excuses. He dreads embarrassment and failure, based upon both reality and fear. When it comes to reality, God doesn’t try to change Moses’ mind, nor does He deny the facts of the situation. Instead, the Lord states His side of the equation. “I will be with you.” (3:12) “I AM who I AM.” (3:14) Related to Moses’ concern about his speech, God asks His own questions, “ ‘Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute?… Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.’ ” (4:11-12) Author Charles Swindoll says, “Now that’s divine speech therapy!” In 4:10, Moses is quick to explain why he is not the right man for the job. He says, “O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” Freeing the
Israelites will likely involve intense conversations with Pharaoh, and Moses views himself as inherently unqualified. To calm Moses’ fears about whether people will believe he is God’s representative (4:1), the Lord performs two miracles. First, He has Moses throw down a staff, and it turns into a serpent. When Moses grasps the serpent by the tail, it once again becomes a staff. Next, the Lord asks Moses to put his hand into his cloak. Scripture says, “When he took it out, it was leprous, like snow.” Then He (God) said, “‘Now put it back into your cloak.’ So Moses put his hand back into his cloak, and when he took it out, it was restored, like the rest of his flesh.” (4:6-7) Rather than reprimand Moses for his doubts, God demonstrates the mighty power that would enable and sustain him. A A Common CommonTheme Theme While the scope of Moses’ assignment is immeasurably more expansive than mine, I find comfort in our shared experiences. I believe feelings of inadequacy and fear span time and culture. They are part of what it means to be human. Author Paula Rinehart says, “We are afraid—not of evil, but of making fools of ourselves, of being less liked by others, of looking like a dolt. When we give in to this kind of fear and let it run our lives, we get stuck in a shrunken form of the life we are meant to have.” Swindoll observes, “Moses shows how deeply he fears ridicule. More than anything else, perhaps, he is deathly afraid of appearing as a silly old man.” In my case, I am scared of missing an important detail, or simply not knowing what to do. What if I prove to be incapable? What if I let someone down? I know the whole family trusts me to do the right thing. And, due to the complexity of the situation, there are many opportunities to make mistakes. My “assignment” includes staying current on my mother-in-law’s multi-faceted health care issues, coordinating financial planning, dismantling her household, and transitioning her to full-time care. Some days, the details seem endless. And, since she lives 45 minutes down the freeway from my home, I make the trip many times a week for visits and appointments. 11

"In God’s calling, He has a plan; but He never expects you to carry out that plan. He’s going to pull it off. He simply wants you to be the instrument of action...… "
There are also issues of the heart—the sadness of watching her rapid decline, and coming to terms with dramatic changes in our family dynamics. I repeatedly console and reassure her as she grieves, at age 82, the loss of her home and independence. Many nights I find myself sitting on the couch at 3 a.m., searching the Scriptures to soothe my soul. Ultimately, I have to lay aside my personal desires in favor of a different agenda, to an extent far beyond my norm. While this process is exhausting and overwhelming, I experience God’s love and faithfulness more deeply than I have in years. Author F.B. Meyer says, “So long as we are quietly at rest amid favorable and undisturbed surroundings, faith sleeps as an undeveloped sinew within us; a thread, a germ, an idea. But when we are pushed out from all these surroundings, with nothing but God to look to, then faith grows suddenly into a cable, a monarch oak a master principle of life.” It is daunting to consider some of the assignments God has given His people through the centuries. A quick glance at Hebrews 11 reveals the examples of Noah, Abraham and Sarah, Joseph, David and others. In the Gospels, Mary the mother of Jesus readily accepts the Lord’s profound yet perplexing plans. For the New Testament church, Peter and Paul are called to roles of great risk and responsibility. In recent history, Amy Carmichael, Corrie ten Boom, Joni Eareckson Tada and Billy Graham embraced callings of significant sacrifice. Today, the persecuted church shines as believers carry out divine assignments amid danger and difficulty. In each of these scenarios, the faith and action required by God is humanly impossible. He calls His people to tasks only He can accomplish, for His purpose and glory. Swindoll notes, “At very unique junctures of our lives, God says to us, ‘Now My child, I have this in mind for you…Now go. I’m sending you, and I will be with you.’ Why did Moses resist? … I believe Moses thought God intended him to be the deliverer of Israel, and that blew all his circuit breakers. But God didn’t tell him that! God told him that he would be an instrument in the deliverance, but God Himself would be the deliverer. Huge difference. In God’s calling, He has a plan; but He never expects you to carry out that plan. He’s going to pull it off. He simply wants you to be the instrument of action…All He asks is that you give yourself to Him as a tool He can pick up and use. That’s all.”
My assignment allowed me to experience God’s goodness in specific answers to prayer and many surprise gifts. He graciously guided us through a web of health care and insurance details, and opened an excellent care facility placement at just the right time, after four solid months of looking. He enabled us to sell a 1978 vintage mobile home in just four days, and disperse its considerable contents to a variety of people and charities. Daily blessings included unexpected visits from friends, pertinent Scriptures brought to mind, and just the right songs on the radio. God often showed me His tangible love, and reminded me that my weakness was the perfect place to showcase His strength (2 Cor. 12:9). As Paula Rinehart notes, “The case can be made that you don’t really get to know God except by wading into your fear and discovering Him there.” As believers, we never know when or what our next assignment will be. It could be as simple as visiting a neighbor, as intimidating as reconciling a relationship, or as extensive as starting a new career. It will likely require us to step into unfamiliar realms—mentally, physically, spiritually, or all three. But one aspect is sure, as the Lord spoke to Moses from the burning bush, “Certainly, I will be with you.” (Exodus 3:12) In that reality, we can find the courage to say yes, to whatever God asks of us.

Summer of Service
Summer of Service takes students around the world
his summer, Corban students and staff hit the road and logged tens of thousands of air miles. However, they weren’t on tropical vacations. Instead, more than a dozen volunteers chose to spend a portion of their summer serving others and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through Corban’s “Summer of Service,” S.O.S., program. The three short-term mission trips were as far away as West Asia and as close as Mexico and Colombia. Director of Student Life Jimmy D’Agosta knows it sometimes takes a little humor to get a job done. In May, he led a team of five Corban students and a pastor to Colombia. They used drama to share the love of Jesus Christ with others. Throughout the mission, the team worked with the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (ABWE) to present their message, give Wordless Book presentations and give their testimony at schools, orphanages and more. In the Muslim-dominated region of West Asia, five students worked with CrossWorld to spread the gospel. The students worked in a coffee house where they built relationships and taught English to patrons. Additionally, they helped a mother and father with several adopted children get some respite, by watching their children so they could take some time away. Because of the threat of backlash against Christians in the region, they were intentionally low-key in their witness, but were able to serve others and share the love of Jesus Christ. In Mexico City, three students and Paul Johnson, associate professor of intercultural studies and missions at Corban, worked with CAM International to help the pastor of a new church in his outreach efforts. The team assisted a group providing free medical care for people in the neighborhood, made home visits, played soccer with children, held puppet shows in local parks and helped with some minor construction projects. This was the second summer for S.O.S., and Johnson said it was a good precursor for what the future holds. “Each of these groups went and did what they said they were going to do,” Johnson said. “We didn’t have pre-packaged plans, but met the needs of the organizations we served.

New students, new year Corban’s Orientation Weekend, Aug. 26 to 30, was a flurry of activity for staff and faculty who welcomed new students to the school’s Salem campus. The University saw record enrollment (1,245) for the 2011-2012 school year. This increase was evident as new students, and their families, toured the Salem campus, moved students into dorms, received ID cards, registered cars and much more. The Office of Admissions received help from many returning students, who offered their hands and hearts in welcome and friendship, ported luggage and put parents at ease, although several parents still shed tears as they said goodbye to their now grown children. Throughout the weekend, new students experienced the infamous Corban games, ate plenty of food and desserts, learned about campus life and opportunities and attended 14
chapel in the C.E. Jeffers Sports Center. They also participated in a scavenger hunt throughout downtown Salem and the State Capitol grounds. “People were excited and had fun and said they felt very welcome,” said Director of Admissions Heidi Stowman. “We even had one mother who told us she cried happy tears because there were so many people there to help and care for her daughter as she moved into her dorm room. I can already tell we are going to have a great year at Corban.” Registration begins for May 2012 trip to Israel and Jordan In May 2012, Corban students, parents and alumni are invited to walk through the Old and New Testaments during a tour of the Holy Lands. Between May 20 and 29, 2012, Dean of Ministry Greg Trull and Theology Professor Tim Anderson will guide a trip through Israel, including stops at Masada, Herod’s lavish palace fortress, the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus Christ delivered the Sermon on the Mount, the Temple Mount and Dome of the Rock, the Garden of Gethsemane and more. There will be an optional trip extension to Jordan May 16 to 21, where the group will study the ruins of various ancient peoples, Mount Nebo, the traditional burial place of Moses, take a jeep ride through the spectacular desert Wadi Rum and visit Eilat, a city on the route of the Exodus. “Our goal for the trip is to experience the places where God has done some of His greatest works in Scripture” Trull said. “We will visit many incredible sites from the Word. Going from reading and studying Scripture to experiencing the places where Scripture happened is like going from black and white
television to high-def TV. It will add a new depth to one's understanding and appreciation of the Bible and open our hearts to the Lord's people who live in the land today.” The tour of Israel is $3,950 per person, and the optional trip to Jordan is an additional $890. The trip is limited to 35 people. For more information or to register for this amazing spiritual adventure, email Trull at email@example.com. Writer-in Residence makes a difference in Moldova Between the nations of Romania and Ukraine, the tiny nation of Moldova is rich with history, but hardships for the ethic people who live there. Few know this better than Gina Ochsner, Corban University’s Writer-in-Residence, who has traveled to the region extensively for book research and to help its people—particularly the Roma peoples. In June, she spent a week in the village of Vulcaneshti, working with three women from the Netherlands to help the community’s girls and women study the Word of God. Although she also intended to conduct research for an upcoming novel, Ochsner quickly realized other things may have been more important. “It was a lesson in flexibility,” she said. “My motto throughout the entire trip was to be as flexible as a jellyfish. It was a lesson I think God was trying to teach me.” The team of women lived in the home of a village Christian family and held Bible studies, had Bible lessons for children and more. Because of the extreme weather in Moldova, Christian women find it very difficult to meet together. “The only time the roads aren’t thick with mud is between May and September,” Ochsner said. “The mud is sometime knee high, and if they make it to the church, it is too cold inside to hold a Bible study. The women there are hungry for relationships and God, and they don’t want these parachute drops of people coming in for a week or two and then leaving. They want something sustained.” Ochsner said she intends to return in the future, but while in the U.S. would like to raise funds to pay a Christian teacher to help women in the community in their walk with God and possibly bring education and English lessons.
Illuminated Praise comes to Corban When God meets internationally renown painter Anneli Anderson at her canvas, a special time of worship ensues. The Portland, Ore., native has created breathtaking works over the course of a decade, and she has compiled those works into her book, Illuminated Praise. The limited edition book is forwarded by Corban University President Reno Hoff and includes From Here to Eternity, painted by Anderson during the Homecoming Chapel on Sept. 30., and gifted to Corban University by the artist. “The symbolism of Anneli’s From Here to Eternity painting is so rich,” said Hoff in his forward. “I love the two boats, with the farthest one empty, speaking of those who are going ahead of us to heaven’s shores. I also love the contrast between the dark lower right corner, speaking of life’s mysteries and trials, over against the (at first) unseen Spirit’s presence and power at work in and through us.” The limited edition book is available only through the Corban Office of Alumni. For more information about Anderson’s Illuminated Praise, call Deleen Wills at 503-589-8182 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Corban earns 10th Champions of Character designation For the 10th year running, Corban athletes have been named Les Schwab Champions of Character. The women’s basketball team, under the leadership of coach Terry Williams, earned the title. The Champions of Character designation is awarded based on a point system. Player or coach misconduct, bad sportsmanship and other factors cause a team to lose points. It doesn’t take much to lose the designation each year, said Athletic Director Dave Johnson. “We’re a school of character before we are athletes,” he said. “We have teams of character, and some of those teams go above and beyond.” A Champions of Character banner will be hung in the C.E. Jeffers Sports Center as a symbol of our values and ethics to all who see it. “Corban is a place where character is expected,” Johnson said. “They are solid athletes who can perform on and off the court or field. Corban production brings awareness of human trafficking The tale of Cinderella is filled with magic and awe. Little girls often dream about meeting their own princes after seeing the beloved tale. In November, Corban University’s theatre department, under the leadership
of Associate Professor of Theatre Tamara McGinnis ’82, staged the classic fairy tale for an appreciative audience. While the show stayed true to the magic and fun of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, a portion of the money raised is going to a far more serious cause, the efforts to eradicate human trafficking by Shared Hope International’s organization. “There are women and children all over the world, including the United States, who are being held as slaves and don’t have a fairy godmother to rescue them,” McGinnis said. “I learned about the issue of slavery last summer… but didn’t know how I could help. The woman who spoke told us we can use our talents and gifts to reach these forgotten people.” While McGinnis didn’t have cash to spare, she knew with the help of Corban students and staff, she could make an impact and chose Cinderella as the instrument to help. “Cinderella is the story of a young woman who loses her family, is kept away as a servant and despised by everyone she has left,” McGinnis said. “She was rescued by her fairy godmother and had a fairy tale life in the end, which isn’t the case for so many women and children.” The money donated will be used to help women coming out of the sexual slavery to readjust to new lives. Without support such as job training, housing and other basic necessities, McGinnis said many return to lives with pimps and prostitution.

Corban Grad Takes Mission
Home Front to the
n Dallas, Ore. poverty isn’t sitting on the surface for all to see. Beneath what can be viewed by driving through the rural community are people suffering from the effects of lost jobs, illnesses, homelessness and hopelessness. This community is also the place where Beth Jones, ADP ‘11, is living her mission to serve the needy. At the behest of her pastor, Corban’s Dean of Ministry Greg Trull, Jones formed the non-profit Bambinos in May 2008. With help from two board members and many volunteers, she is distributing clothing, diapers, toys, furnishings, food and God’s love to people in her community. The vision for Bambinos started in 2005 when she and her husband needed to use the Oregon Health Plan for the birth of a child. Jones was also required to accept food stamps to enroll in the health plan. “As I was sitting in the Department of Human Services, I felt God telling me to open my eyes and look around me,” she said. “He told me not to waste this low time in my life.” As she met others waiting for DHS services, and in the low-income area she lived in, she also received lessons in poverty. “I really discovered how broken and inefficient the system was,” Jones
said. “I wanted to know where other believers were. I was frustrated because I couldn’t find anyone who could help.” After a lot of brainstorming, prayer and assurances from Trull that she was ready to begin the ministry, despite her lingering doubts, Jones began. She approached people holding yard sales or on Craigslist and asked if she could have any clothes or children’s items the owners couldn’t sell. Once she received the items, she used Craigslist to contact those who needed the items. “The need was as great as I feared it was,” Jones said. “There are a lot of broken, hurting people in this city.” In 2008, Bambinos helped 20 families. She saw 30 families in both 2009 and 2010. During the first nine months of 2011, Bambinos volunteers served 112 families, with more waiting. “When I heard about Bambinos and met Beth, it was like Christmas for us,” said Michaela Peters, a single mother with three children. “The kids got new coats and new shoes at a time when they desperately needed them.” Peters was also drawn into a relationship with Jesus Christ through a newfound friendship with Jones. “Bambinos showed me that this community is rock solid,” Peters said. “Even when we feel like we have hit rock bottom, God’s people are helping His people.” Living in poverty and accepting social services was humbling for Jones, but in December 2010 she also learned what it was like to be a single mother. Her husband, Ray Jones, an officer in the Oregon Army National Guard, was deployed to Afghanistan, leaving her to care for their two children.
As she works to manage her home and her mission, Jones said she appreciates the spiritual, physical and mental support she receives from other members of the Valley Baptist Church of Perrydale, from Bambinos volunteers, and from the community of people she serves. She also discovered that Christians in Dallas are ready to lend a hand when called upon. “What I’ve learned is that it isn’t that people don’t want to help,” she said. “It’s that people don’t know how to help. Social services through government are not always the answer. We need Christian organizations like Bambinos to be in the middle and ready to help. Although she knows there is still a lot to learn as her mission with Bambinos grows to meet demand, she said she recognizes the impact her Corban University degree has had toward making her passion a reality. “I really felt getting my degree in Psychology and Family Studies from Corban would lend credibility to my mission,” Jones said. “I also knew it would give me some really valuable tools to use as I was building relationships. It’s done all of that and more.”

very once in a while you may stop to consider the impact your life has on the people around you. Many people may look at their family and friends and know they have had a positive influence. Still they yearn to do something more—something deeper for Christ—something positive that has eternal value. Sometimes our cash resources are limited. We would like to give more money to our favorite charitable causes, but there simply aren’t enough resources available. What if you could make a lasting and permanent gift? One that was larger than you ever dreamed possible? And what if you could do it in a way that honored and protected your inheritance for loved ones at the same time? If you would like to create this kind of legacy, the Corban Legacy Society has been established just for you! This allows Corban to thank a very special group of people—those who have remembered to include the University in their future giving and estate plans.
For more information about Corban’s planned giving options, please call Darrel White at 1-800-845-3005 or email dwhite@corban. edu. You may also request a booklet on planned giving or visit our website at giving.corban.edu. Darrel White Director of Development
