In 1972, Hyles-Anderson College was started in northwest Indiana by the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, pastored then by the college’s founder, Dr. Jack Hyles. Dr. Hyles believed that God wanted him to start a Bible college to train men and women for the ministry, particularly at that time, to save America. For nearly 40 years, Hyles-Anderson College has been training some of the finest pastors and missionaries of our time.
Members of First Baptist Church of Hammond sacrificed greatly to make Hyles-Anderson College a reality. More than one lady in the church put her wedding ring into the offering to help purchase the campus that would be used not only to save America but also to train Christian educators and to send missionaries around the world. Only eternity will fully tell the story and make known the eternal rewards to those who sacrificed for the founding of this institution which has trained thousands of young men and women for Gospel ministry.
40 years later, we’re starting another Hyles-Anderson College. This time, the college will be started in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, Philippines. With the same vision in mind, Randy DeMoville, pastor of International Baptist Church at Dumaguete, along with his team of missionary families (Team Indo-Philippine), is ready to train pastors, missionaries, and full-time ministry workers through Hyles-Anderson College of the Philippines. The team in place are graduates of Hyles-Anderson College, Pastor DeMoville also having taught on the faculty of Hyles-Anderson College in Crown Point, Indiana.
That we might have the greatest impact possible, we are asking like-minded individuals and churches who want to have a greater part in the Great Commission to make a sacrifice that will reap eternal dividends. Would you consider making a donation to the founding of Hyles-Anderson College of the Philippines? Your donation will allow us to purchase furniture, equipment, materials, and other necessary items to get the college off to a strong start. Monies received will also help in the establishing of student housing, ministry transportation, and ministry work.
We invite you to explore more about how Hyles-Anderson College of the Philippines will operate and how we plan to train Filipino students, not only in the classroom but also in the field with hands-on opportunities to start, conduct, and build Bible studies into new churches which will multiply disciples and start other churches. Time is of the essence as we want to be able to announce to interested students that there will be a place for them in the first class to begin this year.
In addition to your one-time founding donation, would you also consider becoming a student sponsor? We anticipate that some students will be able to live at home and not need housing assistance; however, other students will be limited without some financial help. Character training is an important and vital part of making a Hylander; any financial assistance received will be met with requirements for the student to learn to work, both for pay and volunteer, and will increase their ministry involvement.
