David Rambo said in Lethbridge last weekend "It is false kindness to accept people into professional ministry training if they are manifestly in- capable of doing this kind of Mr. Rambo said, speaking during a forum dis- cussion at Lethbridge Alliance Church. "Lots of folk send their young people to Bible school to solve discipline problems They think of Bible school as a reformatory Part of our ministry of love is sometimes to say no to these applicants Mr Rambo, representing the Regina-based school, has been touring western provinces during the past three weeks explaining programs He said the college likes to recruit mature Chris- tian students. "At the college we like to think we are receiving the best young he said. "We want Christians who are already active in their local church, who possess leadership potential.

"Through Univesity of Saskatchewan affiliation, our professors are able to teach five non-diluted, evangelical Bible subjects on the universi- ty campus, Mr Rambo said. Practical ministry training courses are being "developed by the college to avoid a "ghetto approach" to Bible school ''Sometimes we have taught a student in the Regina classroom how to be a mis- sionary when he hasn't been outside Canada or even out-of- Mr. Rambo said. "We now want to train mis- sionaries with an actual year on the field, in a different culture learning a different language The school will now require missionary students to serve a full year in the Philippines as part of their course, Mr. Rambo said Future clergymen will be required to work beside a pastor for a full summer, and to engage in three semesters of practical ministry during their study program Mr Rambo said churches need to send out missionaries and pastors with an orienta- tion appropriate to the area they will minister in.
