One of the great privileges we enjoy at Alaska Bible College is hearing from a variety of godly servants, both local and global. Most recently we had the chance to hear from Dr. John E. Johnson at our Spring Conference. Dr. Johnson is Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology and Leadership at Western Seminary, and author of the recent book Under An Open Heaven. The title for his book comes from the Gospel of John were Jesus says to Nathanael, “You will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man” (John 1:51 HCSB). We learned that when Jesus spoke these mysterious words to Nathanael, He was announcing a new order: life would no longer be the same. Jesus was coming to bring life in abundance!
The Conference was hosted by three of our Valley churches over the course of three evening sessions and was available to the public. It was truly special to work alongside so many passionate volunteers and gifted leaders in our community in an effort to provide an opportunity for all of us to worship and grow together. As a College, we look forward to many more of these collaborative efforts to help move ministry forward in Alaska and beyond.
