(Rev. Thomas Schoeneck serves as pastor at Grace Baptist Church, Laramie, WY. Rev. Schoeneck is the president of KBC Ministries and since 1999 serves as adjunct professor at Moldova Bible Seminary.)
(by T. Schoeneck) It was with great joy and expectation that I headed off to Kishinev, Moldova on October 8. I had been invited to once again teach at Moldova Bible Seminary. As I was heading off there was a special excitement about this class. This class would be unique in that 8 of the students would be members of the Admiral basketball team. The Admirals are the Junior level national basketball team for Moldova. Their coordinator is Nick Morari, an MBS graduate. I first met Nick on my first teaching visit to Kishinev in 1999. As an “ex” basketball player myself who had been involved in using the sport as an outreach instrument for the Gospel, I was looking forward to meeting these players and learning more about their ministry.
The class was a blessing for me as I observed the excitement and growing comprehension by all the students of this understanding of the spiritual life - what it means to turn our focus upon Jesus and His life through us rather than a focus on ourselves and our “doing” for Jesus.
My prayer is that the seeds that were planted in this class will grow and mature as the students continue to seek more knowledge about and application of The Abiding Life.
Eight young men are undergoing hands-on training on coaching and project organization. As part of this training these young men will take seven courses provided by Moldova Bible Seminary that are designed to help in discipleship, theology knowledge, and ways of leading others we well as defending their faith.
