We are pleased to announce that PLBC’s associate professor of biblical studies, Kyung Baek, has successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis at Manchester University. Our college is privileged to have professors who demonstrate excellence in their fields together with warm-hearted devotion to our Lord and a commitment to serve and mentor our students. In addition to teaching and pastoring, Dr. Baek will continue to teach in the biblical studies division and serve as program chair for the diploma and degree programs in Biblical Studies. We extend our warm congratulations to Kyung, his wife Linda, and their children Madeline, Isaiah, and Micah. The formal conferral of the degree will take place at Manchester in July.
Before the sun was up, President Hixson welcomed students in the Aframe for devos, prayer, and a power walk. By 9am this morning over 120 new students packed out LC3A to receive their registration packet, candy and their very own water bottle. $2 fraps kept the blenders busy. Sam Romijn and a couple returning students led us in worship and prayer.
Clint Nelson walked students through the registration process and then dismissed everyone to meet with their Program Advisors. After registration students enjoyed a stir-fry followed by payment process and a visit to the bookstore.
