Harold B. Graves Jr.
Dear Faculty and Staff:
I bring you greetings from Colorado Springs and Nazarene Bible College in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
As we approach the start of a new academic year I am reminded of the graduating class of 2011. We had 120 students earn a certificate, the Associate of Arts in Ministry, or the Bachelor of Arts in Ministry degree.
In addition, shown below are a few pictures from the 2011 Commencement Service.
It was a privilege to welcome back Dr. Jerry Lambert as our commencement speaker. Dr. Lambert served as President of NBC from 1984-1994. It was such a joy to have Dr. Jerry and Verla Lambert with us for commencement weekend.
President Harold Graves and Academic Dean Gary Streit lead the processional.
Dr. John Nells places the servant towel on his son Jonathan Nells. Dr. Nells is the District Superintendent for the Southwest Native American District and a NBC Board Member. Jonathan is currently serving as chaplain of NBC.
Dr. Graves congratulates graduate Marlene Jones who also works as a NBC Financial Aid Counselor.
Dr. Alan Lyke, Dean of Online Education, congratulates his daughter Ariana Barber.
Mother and daughter graduates Carolyn Akers and Somer Rodriguez were online students from Mississippi.
Dr. Graves congratulates graduate Raymond Long who was also the recipient of The Evangelism Award, provided by the Chic Shaver Center for Evangelism.
We are so proud of the Class of 2011 and bless them as they go out to serve our world. Thank you for your support of Nazarene Bible College.
Please pray for our new students and our returning students as they begin a new year.
Grace and Peace,
