A NEW COLLEGE IN
HISTORIC.EL PASQ !
^ El Paso's history ^vers more than four centuries from the conquest of
\the New Worldly Spanish explorers to the American conquest of space. Here
mountains rise high above the desert floor, providing a backdrop of spec-
tacular scenery where the Pass of the North separates the southernmost tip of
the Rockies from the Sierra Madres of Mexico,
El Paso is a metropolis in the desert, famed for its smull-town hospitality
but big-city bustle. The latest population estimates indicate that nearly
331,000 persons live within the city limits, making it the largest city on
the entire U.S,-Mexico border. Just across the river is the City of Juarez,
largest Mexican city on the border with a population of 500,000. Together El
Paso and Juarez form the largest twin-city complex on any international bor
der in the world.
The conquistadores, traveling north on El Camino Real (The King's Highway) in
1536 found the location of El Paso del Norte (The Pass of the North) ideal
as a base for searching the Southwest. Today, radiating from El Paso and.
JuArez are nine U.S. and interstate highways, including U.S. Interstate 10
and the central highway to Mexico City, Mexico 45. Five bus lines, four ma
jor air lines and four railroads also serve the area.
Here at the gateway to Mexico is an ideal base for evangelizing the Great
Southwest and Latin America. EL PASO CliaiSTIAN COLLEGE will serve as an on-
the-field training ground for missionaries as well as provide true-to-the-
Bible education for evangelists and other workers for the churches in the
United States,
From HALLAS CHRISTIAN COLLEGE in the Texas heartland to PACIFIC CHRISTIAN
COLLEGE on the California coast is a distance of some 1400 miles. Approxi
mately halfway between these two points lies El Paso. The independent Christ
ian churches, seeing the need for a loyal Bible college in this strategic
area, are planning EL PASO CHRISTIAN COLLEGE to meet this need.
EL PASO CHRISTIAN COLLEGE will open as an extension of DALLAS CHRISTIAN COL
LEGE in September, 1973. Because of the unique opportunities of this bi
lingual and bi-cultural cooHmtfiXb^tr^jbs^^pected that the extension will draw
students from a wide arp^^. The goal of)-the school is to provide Bible col
lege training for all who"destre it arid specialized training for the mission
field. Graduates of other colleges will be welcome in the mission courses.

Adapted from the Catalog of
Dallas Christian College
The Educational Objective of El
Paso Christian College is to pro
vide a curriculum designed to de
velop the individual Student into
the fullness for which God created
him. Thus emphasis is placed on
the spiritual, cultural and phy
sical training of those who enter
the halls of E.P.C.C. The ulti
mate goal of E.P.C.C. is to help
the student develop into a person
who knows the will of God, is ded
icated to the task of carrying out
the commission of Christ, and who
has the skill and culture to serve
his fellowman.
em/d &^u/i/w^e
We believe "that the Bible or
Holy Scriptures alone is the di
vinely inspired Word of God, and
therein is the revelation of the
deity of Jesus Christ, the plan of
salvation for mankind, and the
faith and work of the New Testa
ment Church; furthermore, that the
testimony of such Scripture testi
fies to prophecy concerning His
advent, virgin birth, miraculous
life, blood atonement, bodily re
surrection, ascension into heaven,
and final return, and that these
are expressly and historically
true in the commonly accepted
meaning of the terms..."From the
Dallas Christian College Catalog.

Dear Christian friends^
l^e summer has gone by so fast, it just doesn't seem possible that
school has started once agaiu For us here at S A it means that
we are all back in 1 Paso once more after being scattered throughout
the U. S, and ^fexico during the summer months presenting the work that
is being done here on the border*
Most of you are aware that 1 moved down here on June 11th* 1 am very
grateful to Louise Mitchell for allowing me to stay with her in her house*
She is one of wy co-workers here at S A* * X have really enjoyed her
compcmionshipy and, of course, I^m not having to pay such a high amount
for rent as 1 would have if I were in an apartment*
For me the summer has been busy, but not too hectic* The two weeks
before I moved down here I was involved in Vacation Bible Schools in Cope-
land, Ecmsasi and in ny home church in Dodge City* In both schools I gave
the missionary lesson and also taught a class* I have also helped with
two Vacation Bible Schools here on the Border* In July I taught a class
of seven to eleven year olds in a V* B*. S in Juarez* class averaged
about forly students, and X had no helper* Xt was quite an experience
since Xhadn't really had any opportunity to speak Spanish for about two
years until that week* This particular V* B* S. was held at a filling
station* The owner of the station is a member of the church in JuSrez,
aind 80 allowed us to use his station for this purpose as there was no
other place to meet in this area*. Freeman Bump was responsible for having
five different Vacation Bibie Schools in JuArez with a total of over 600
different students* They were very successful, and X was happy to'have a
small part in them* The other Vacation Bible School that 1 helped with
was the one at Eastside Christian Church here in El Paso* For this one.
X also presented the missionary storythis time about Cookson Bills in
(HElahoma* Eastside is the church where X worship and have a very active
part in the activities there, so X was happy to be of service in this way*
Another highlight of the summer was the canqt at the Ojo de Agua in
JimAnez, Chihuahua* This was the same camp that Xparticipated in the
three summers X was with Bill and Boberta Burr in Chihuahua* Ve had a
total of thirty canq^ers and about ten faculty members* X presented a
lesson to the entire camp about Bhodesia and the mission work that is
being done there; classes were for forty-five minutes evezy day*
SEP 10 1973
Ereiyone really enjoyed it They took up an offering every day for the
work in Bhodesia*. The total was over 100 pesos which is not quite $10*00
Aaterican* We were just thrilled the way the Mexican youth took an interest
in the work being done in other parts of the world*
1 Paso Christian College is now under way; however, because we
do not have enough full-time students enrolled, we are having only night
classes this year* This has enabled some of the chxirch membe^ iViraSe"
classes that .would not have been able to do so otherwise* The total en
rollment Next year we hope to be able to teach full-*
time during the day* Tha^daaae^^or the Mexican students are being held
in Juarez at our Christian bookstore* The-jclasgfis f or the Americans^are
being held at. the Eastside Christian Church* 1 am teaching a class^in
music fundamentals to the Mexican students, and also the same class in
English to seme-of the .Americans* I have three students in each class*
Then I'm also teaching a Spanish class two nights a week* I have seven
students in this clase* 1 am using a new method of teaching Spanish, so
I have also been going to class a few days each week to learn how to teach
it* I have really enjoyed it, and everyone taking the class has commented
on how much they like it*
When I ocuae down in June, I had planned on staying here for at least
a year; however, ny plans have changed, and I will be lecnring' shortly be-
The reason for this change is that IT^Eim engaged and plan
feft tio iwAy-i-iofi the first week of January* Jjr fiancl^ is Terry Clark from
Lexington, Kentucky* We met while we~were both students at Ozark Bible
College* He also has graduated from there and has both the Bachelor of
Sacred Literature Degree and the Bachelor of Theolo^- Degree*. Currently
he is the minister for the Suburban Christian Church in Cleveland, Ohio*
I want to thank all of you for your supportboth in your prayers and
your finances* Xt is really appreciated* Xam really thankful for the
Christian friends I have such as you* X am taking this opportunity to
ask for your contipned^jBnppQrt3hrough the. end of the year as-X vill be
involved in tlie wont here until then* "T^lease pray, too, that the Lord
might lead us to people with hilingual backgrounds and music backgrounds
who would be~willing-to come and-join in-the work here* _
May God bless each and everyone of you as you serve Him throughout
your daily lives*
In Christian love.
