First Sabbath Offering for Plymouth Leadership College
The pen of Inspiration repeats the phrase, “educate, educate, educate,” numerous times. To open new fields in the Lord’s vineyard, for canvassers, for medical missionaries, for all youth. “Train the youth, mold the character, educate, educate, educate, for the future, immortal life.”—Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, p. 590.
Plymouth Leadership College (PLC) seeks to fulfill this very mission. With a foundation on the missionary schools that were started by faithful brethren in the North American region, including schools in Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Colorado and California, the Western U.S. Union saw the value of establishing a place where education would be focus. A campus had been purchased in rural northern California in the 1950’s for this purpose, and had been used sometimes, but now the WUSU wanted to formalize this and ensure that it would provide this education regularly. The property, known to many Reformers around the world as Moriah Heights, now houses the campus of PLC together with a number of other church institutions, including an elementary school and agricultural program. It is an ideal location in the countryside for a school that will prepare our youth to enter the mission field and proclaim the final message of warning to this world.
With a blend of on-campus and online instruction, PLC is able to provide access to high quality Christian post-secondary education to students not only in California, but throughout the world. Students from across North America as well as the Pacific Islands, Africa, and South America have attended classes on campus. The pandemic has taught us the value of having programs available online to meet the needs of those who have been prevented from coming to classes in person. And now, just as this offering is being collected, another class of students from across the United States and around the world is beginning the next Accelerated Evangelism Program.
Your support of this project is vital. Every penny collected will go directly into the production of more materials that you will be able to access. This offering is an investment in yourself, your local church, and your community.
