Owen’s in Hong Kong #3–Bethel Baptist Seminary

2015-02-04 17.46.52The main reason I was in Hong Kong was not for vacation – although I enjoyed the days at each end of the trip. I was there as the chairman of the visiting team from TRACS to evaluate the self-study of Bethel Bible Seminary. I had been part of the team that evaluated Bethel for accreditation candidacy in 2013 so I was happy to be part of the team that would evaluate them for fully accredited status. It was a real privilege to be able to help a school that has been making a tremendous impact for Christ since 1925. 10420163_10153198448908949_3629681900450839656_nThe school administration, especially the president, Dr. Fai Luk, and the Dean of Research and Development, Annisa Wong, hosted us very graciously and I enjoyed getting to know them and the school a little better. I think I learn as much on these visits as I help the schools we visit. I hope I will be able to visit again in the future. On the left I am standing at the front gate of the school.
