Letter from the President As we ‘Ride the Wave’ on this past years “Voyage” my reflection is that it has been a great ride. This theme encompassed so many of our events from this past year. It permeated our chapels, community events, NSO, and other campus activities. I know that each of you will hold the year, days, minutes, hours through this past year in your memory. It is my hope that the pages of your yearbook will help to recall these special moments and the special people in the years to come. I have several memories that I will hold onto from this past year—the amazing Chapel’s led by our Spiritual Life Team with the new stage design; the inside-the-park homerun to open the inaugural baseball game on our campus field; and as Emmanuel says, the “legit” students and faculty that I have encountered in amazing conversations through the all the activities of our campus community. These are some of the things that will be drawn back to my mind as I turn the pages of this yearbook.   And as always I close my yearbook remarks with these words…Treasure your memories, but know that my prayer for all of you is that you will make a difference for Christ in the world and continue the tradition of service that SDC has taught us.   Serving Him,  

Paul Ague, Ph. D. President

San Diego Christian College was founded in 1970 as Christian Heritage College under the initial sponsorship of Scott Memorial Baptist Church (now Shadow Mountain Community Church). Desiring to “prepare Christian young people not only for relatively brief careers in this present world . . . but also for eternal service,” Drs. Tim LaHaye, Art Peters and Henry Morris sought to establish a new Christian liberal arts college, “based upon the full integrity and inerrancy of Scripture.” Drs. LaHaye, Peters and Morris believed, “the best education must be founded on the fact of God’s creation and developed within the framework of His revealed Word.”

“I achieved one of my greatest goals, graduating from SDCC with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management at the age of 45. Was I nervous going back to school at such an advanced age? You bet I was. As an adult student in the APS program you learn relevant, real-world knowledge. Students literally take knowledge gained in class and put it to use the very next day in the workplace. It does not get any more relevant than that.” - Frank

Aviation the skills necessary to attain a career in professional aviation while gaining a solid foundation in biblical knowledge... serve Christ--whether with a missionary aviation organization, through the military or commercial aviation.

This was a year of change and growth for our Aviation Department. It was our first full year with the missionary pilot loan forgiveness program which has helped increase the enrollment of missionary pilots to nearly 50%. Our largest freshman class ever swelled our department to over 40 aviation students. Our Flight Team competed at the NIFA Regional Championships at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott AZ and earned their fourth invitation in a row to the national collegiate flying championships at Kansas State University this May. Our most noticeable change is the purchase of Jean’s Flight Training by Eamonn and Deanne Powers Captain Denny Breslin which shall henceforth be known as “SDCC Aero”. This has been another Director of Aviation exciting year with great enthusiasm for the changes God has planned for our school. We are deeply committed to serving Him and the key to doing God’s will in aviation is having fun and doing it safely while expanding our borders and preparing for the future. In a comprehensive feature article about our flight program on the front page of the San Diego Union Tribune December 8, junior Jenna Sims summed up the essence of our focus: “...prayer and faith are part of every trip. That’s really the foundation for our whole program.” -Denny Breslin

Hawks Flight Team

The Flight Team is our precision competition team and although we’re one of the smallest teams in the country, we’re very proud of our results. Last May we flew 5 airplanes 2200 miles to Columbus Ohio to compete in our 3rd national collegiate flying championships. The first 4 days were rained out but we were able to finish the competition and SDCC scored 22nd in the country out of 33 competitors. Almost as exciting as the trip to Ohio State University and the competition, was the long trip back around thunderstorms, rain showers and and strong, turbulent winds. Our pilots ended up diverting to 3 different airports on the flight from Branson MO to D/FW the night of the devastating Joplin MO tornado - a tribute to the excellent training and skillful decision-making skills exhibited by our national competitors. Another highlight was the tour of the American Airlines Flight Academy where each of our pilots was given the opportunity to fly the $30 million B-737 simulator for nearly an hour before heading home for San Diego. This year our pilots won their fourth bid to the national college flying championships by scoring high at regional championships in Prescott AZ at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University last fall. We’ll be sending our precision flight team to Kansas State University for competition starting May 14. We would like to thank all our donors and acknowledge the hard work our pilots did to earn the money required to pay for practice flights and competition.

In the News: February 2012

The SDCC Speech and Debate Team competed in one of the largest, most competitive collegiate debate tournaments in the country last weekend among some forty-plus universities: the Sunset Cliffs Classic at Point Loma Nazarene University. Below are some of SDCC’s awards and noteworthy accomplishments: Awards

Broberg/Grant Freeman both won their final rounds in the Junior Division after forsaking more traditional argumentation to run “performance” debates, in which the debaters perform, or act out, their advocacy to their audiences. Out of 30 possible points for only the most excellent speaking, Tarra earned 27.5 points, Zachary earned 28 points, and Shelby Broberg earned 29.5 points! More importantly, their creative argumentation became the talk of the competitors and judges! The topic was “America should reduce the deficit of trust between Wall Street and Main Street.”

Jacob Bechtol—Finalist / 5th Place in Novice Extemporaneous Speaking David Diaso—Finalist / 3rd Place in Novice After Dinner Speaking (Speech to Entertain) David Diaso—Finalist / 4th Place Congratulations to these students! in Novice Impromptu Speaking I applaud them for having the courage and endurance to Noteworthy Accomplishments voice their ideas at this grueling tournament of the mind, which In the final round of Impromptu ran over twelve hours on Saturday!

“If I could give anything to my

students it would be a

love of learning; it creates and sustains potential.” - Joe Sarnowski

Winning entry in poetry for the 2012 Dr. Paul Ague Writing Contest The End of Certainty by Danielle Curson The great ship looks small among the rocky crags. The sails appear beggars, the decks are lonely. The Navy-straight masts jut upward like bones Into the black well of the ocean’s passing deep. Cruel sweetness! Morbid love Acknowledgement To seduce the sodden planks! To lure them alone and un-make this ship of Completing EN 421 In your soft, deceitful hands! Michael Dukes Unless the builders build like your Maker, Their labors are in vain. Wood washed away by the strength of the smooth-speaking waters. She sleeps as if awake on wind: The chaises still lounge on deck, quiet and cold; Dining tables, nailed to the boards still remain Though the silverware has been pilfered by a watery thief. Unstolen is a lantern’s light, saved by glass. Gentle sea left the lone beam In a lantern hung inside, Marking where the darkness clouds into blue. Once a beacon in evening, now a fading flicker in the current. The lantern remains while the boards turn to grey. Then, light extinguished by the ocean’s sweet kiss; The ship waits steadfast while all other worlds list. 56

Liberal Studies

Being a Liberal Studies major is a lot more than learning how to teach. In the Liberal Studies department, we become a family, learning to support one another as we take the CSETs, observe, and navigate the waters of teaching. We’re not just thinking locally or nationally, many will go on to be missionaries

Liberal Studies

prepares future teachers!

throughout the world. This is where we start. We’re going to be a part of many student’s lives in the future, and our professors work hard to make sure we understand and are ready not for only the Christian teaching world, but public schools. The Liberal Studies professors love their students and work hard to keep us on track- their love for teaching is contagious.

I have travelled miles on Internet Have knocked on doors of thousands data entries Have reconnected hundreds of hidden links Searching for my beloved Info Yet as my midnight candles burning hot and high I was compelled to reach I was rescued at last by my Library Website My best grades and highest points Like a shining Knight dashed to my sight I was lost in the jungles of knowledge Loud and clear Trapped helplessly in millions of .coms Bright and kind It fulfilled my dream At last I found my beloved Info In my Library website.

The Karen [Kuh-ren] are one of seven tribal groups from Burma (Myanmar) which is located in southeast Asia. The minority ethnic group

makes up about 7% of the population of Burma, and lives mostly in remote jungle areas and small villages. The sixty-three-year-long civil war that is taking place in Burma is officially the longest civil war in history. Since 1949, the Karen have been a target for government soldiers who persecute all minority ethnic groups, killing men, raping women, and destroying villages, forcing tribal people to leave their homes and flee into the jungle to hide.

The Karen people have little opportunity to go to school, receive medical care, or escape poverty. Recently, there has been a few organizations developed to help them with these needs, but the majority of Karen have yet to be reached by humanitarian agencies. Adrienne Graham wrote an auto-ethnographic study which examined cross-cultural interactions between Karen and American individuals in Thailand and through narrative proposed a nonverbal dialogic communication theory.

Below are just a few highlights of her paper: •

Over the course of two years, I have been able to spend three and a half months with the Karen, developing unique relationships with Karen villagers with whom I was unable to verbally communicate.

Further, no matter how much I describe events, feelings and situations, no amount of storytelling is going to do my experience in the village justice.

Nevertheless, I tell our story, the story of the Karen and I, because I want it to change the way people • view others who are not like them, I want it to change the way people live.


The small, twenty-four family village is only around half a mile wide, just large enough to perch atop the • foothill of the taller mountain that grew up like a tumor on the south side. Grandpas sit on their porches and smoke their pipes peacefully among themselves, and grandmas sit in groups and chew Bettlenut, a type of nut that makes their mouth turn red and their teeth fall out. Mothers openly nurse their tiny children, weave

Fathers smoke and talk quietly with each other, seeming very macho as they, too, head off for a long day’s work. Teenagers gather together and talk gaily, giggling at each other’s jokes; friends take walks while holding hands, people in general are in good spirits. It didn’t help that I slept in a large room that had no front wall, just the open porch attached to it, where Karen people who walked by could look inside and see me sleeping. I couldn’t remember how many times in the past week I just stopped what I was doing and all of a sudden became struck by how amazing it was to be with fun-loving Karen people out in the middle of the gorgeous jungles of Thailand. In one week, they had become so much more to me than friends: they had become my whole life.

VISION XIX, Right to Left (the way Hebrew is read!): Ed Dickinson (SDCC Alumnus and Missionary with San Diego Hebrew Mission), Valerie White, Amanda Graham (Student Director), Nick Mitchell, Heather Lawton, Trisha Guinn, Luke Kanagy, Caleb Davies, Priscilla Norman, Mike Alvarez, Emilie McDonald, Lindsey Davies, Lizzy Byrd, Larry Wilson (Faculty Adviser). The background? Jesus’ hometown of Nazareth.

When the possibility arose for this year’s VISION Team to minister in Israel, our San Diego contact, Missionary Ed Dickinson, said, “You shouldn’t just pray about going to Israel; you need to ask God’s permission to visit ‘The Land.’” Our three-week journey May 11-June 4 took us to multiple regions in the central and northern parts of the country, allowing us to walk not only in the footsteps of our Savior Jesus Christ, but also in paths trod by Abraham, Joshua, David, Elijah, Peter, Paul, and so many more figures of both Old and New Testaments. Our primary focus in Israel, as divinely appointed, and planned by our knowledgeable hosts, was on street ministry—planting seeds of the Gospel through both performances of songs and dramas and distribution of Mike preached his first sermon on a rooftop in Tiberias, alternating between English and Spanish before an audience that included people from several South American countries. In addition, Bill Rogers interpreted the message into Hebrew. In addition to sharing her talents in singing, acting, and playing violin, Emilie boldly set the pace in stepping forward to share the Gospel through conversation when possible, supplemented by literature in a variety of languages.

Amanda has served faithfully as VISION’s Student Director for the past three years. ABOVE: She pauses just before stepping into the empty Garden Tomb.

After our program in this predominantly African immigrant neighborhood of Tel Aviv, Priscilla shared her smile and testimony with audience members.

The Tayelet (Promenade) along the Sea of Galilee in Tiberias proved to be an excellent location for VISION’s street presentations. The team performed 20-minute drama and music packages between fountain and light shows put on by the city several times nightly over the water, attracting many to stay and watch them. After each set, the team would pass out Gospel materials and engage people in conversation.

Intramurals Director of Intramurals Jon Arena Sports are a great way to meet new people, stay in shape, and have fun. Many students played sports in high school but aren’t on college teams, and others never had the opportunity in high school.
