Students, Faculty Praying Nonstop For Bible College’s Survival
A decline in enrollment and a lack of donations at Pillsbury Baptist Bible College has students and faculty praying nonstop for the school’s future.
For the Minnesota school to continue operating as it is now, officials say they need an enrollment of at least 200 students. Currently, 170 students attend Pillsbury Baptist.
They’re taking turns for 30 minutes a day in an around-the-clock prayer campaign.
Pillsbury, an accredited college founded in 1957, prepares students for ministry or missionary work in Baptist churches.
School officials are recruiting students from Baptist churches throughout the country. The school is also working to raise 600-thousand dollars by next fall.
