Peniel Theological Seminary Youth Day


"We are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God" (2 Corintians 5:20).


Peniel Theological Seminary Youth Day

The Ninth Annual Abide in Christ Pastor and Leadership Conference at Peniel Theological Seminary included a special Youth Day. Over a 100 young people came to the Pastor Conference this year to introduce them to the seminary.

One of the encouraging things at Peniel are the number of children of students and graduates who have chosen to further their education by beginning their studies at the seminary. The age of students has progressively become younger. University graduates have chosen to continue their studies at Peniel. Therefore, the  academic quality has risen over the last ten years.

Peniel Seminary has grown from ten students ten years ago to around 200 in attendance this seminster.

Dr. Rick Cain joined Wil and gave five  presentations on discipleship and spiritual growth. These were well received by the students. In additon to translating for Rick, Wil gave five presentations on the Exaltation of Jesus Christ through His resurrection, ascension, session at the right hand of the Father in heaven, and His Second Coming. We also had excellent presentations by two pastors from Bolivia and Brazil. Alberto Copa gave an outstanding presentation on the call and responsabilities of the pastor.

August 5-9, 2019 Billy Windham joined Wil to work with the Ecuadorian Medical Dental Evangelism team. This team is composed of an Ecuadorian medical doctor, dentist, evangelism professors at Peniel Theological Seminary and students. The pastor of the rural church where we ministered is a seminary student, and the work was started with four families.  It is in the community of Apalmala de Vasconez in the area of Salcedo. During the months ahead Alejandro Guacho will work with the pastor and these families to follow up on those who made decisions. He will take seminary students to visit house to house witnessing.
