A graduation is always an exciting time that brings a sense of both anticipation and relief. That was especially true Sunday night as three Seminario Bautista Panamericano students received their diplomas. Most students complete their studies in three years, and graduate soon after. It took the students who graduated from the SBP study center in Indian Trail, North Carolina a little longer to finally receive that prized piece of paper.
Iglesia Bautista Vida Abundante (Abundant Life Baptist Church) is still a relatively new church. It has been formed by a merger of two separate ministries in Monroe and Pineville, SC. Both of those churches operated SBC study centers before they merged. After the merge, it took a bit before they resumed their studies, but eventually all of the modules were completed and GBS president, Bob Reed was able to be on hand to present the three worthy graduates their Certificate in Bible Doctrine.
