"I know that I stand on the should on the shoulders of great men."
It is only natural for people to wonder how I see Sunset going forward into the future, and so I want to begin by sharing that very thing.
When I think of Sunset International Bible Institute, I think of more than a simple school on the South Plains; I think of a work of Almighty God for the aid of His church in its great purpose of seeking and saving the lost. To me, she is a thing of beauty, made so by her Lord and through the work of His great servants. I know that I stand on the shoulders of great men: people like Cline, Truitt, Ted, Truman, Charles and others who have held positions of administration in this institute and have allowed themselves to be the instruments of God for the sake of institutional greatness only for the purpose of His glory.
My vision for Sunset is one that sees it as a premier training institute that supplies our brotherhood with quality evangelists, ministry organizers and kingdom leaders. In other words, it exists “to train whole persons to proclaim the whole gospel to the whole world, wholly to please God.”
I see us maintaining our commitment to the all-sufficient and inerrant word of God in today’s world of ever-changing hermeneutics, role confusions and worship “styles.” Our brotherhood is crying out for the clear ring of Scripture’s eternal call for purity in doctrine and behavior. SIBI has ever been a voice in the middle of extremes taking a balanced, interpretive view with sound, biblical reasoning governed by faith and grace. We are first and foremost a biblical institute committed to the faithful study and proclamation of God’s good and perfect will. We have the finest faculty anywhere in the brotherhood for the continuance of our exceptional curriculum. We must stay committed to our faculty, and they to us, so that quality not only continues but improves. Additionally, the recruitment of more and more quality students with appropriate scholarship assistance needs to be pursued and realized. Quality people are at the center of our future.
