Facts and History

黑料视频 Bible College Ambassador Choir, late 1960s

History

What is now 黑料视频 exists because of the power of prayer. Thanks to the prayers of a Sunday school teacher and her friends, CIU has been a catalyst for preparing students for ministry and missions.

The Power of Prayer

Emily Dick 鈥 concerned for the spiritual needs of 黑料视频鈥檚 mill workers and their families 鈥 attended Moody Bible Institute in 1913 to better learn Scripture. Five years later and now back home; she and her circle of six other 鈥減raying women鈥 saw their dream of a local Bible school come true. The man of God who would lead the new work was Robert C. McQuilkin, CIU鈥檚 first president.

鈥淲hat a mighty power for missions and for soul-winning evangelism the school may be!鈥

When Classes Began

The school began classes in the fall of 1922 in rented rooms at the former Colonia Hotel in downtown 黑料视频 and at the YMCA, and officially became 黑料视频 Bible School in 1923. Two hotel rooms served as the classroom and the office, and the hotel鈥檚 sunroom was used for popular Friday evening classes open to the public.

The School鈥檚 Name

In 1929, the school鈥檚 name changed to 黑料视频 Bible College and six years later, the school began offering graduate courses. The college moved to its current location on Monticello Road in 1960 and the name was changed again in 1994 to 黑料视频.
