All About Calvary's Study & Work Program

Last update on April 17, 2015.

As the cost of a college education continues to rise, so does the importance of achieving it. Unfortunately, this leaves many young adults with little choice but to graduate with massive debt. But Calvary Bible College wants to change that. We want to help students graduate with less debt. That's where the “Study & Work Program” comes into play. We’ve developed a new program which allows students to pay for their tuition. Here’s all the information about the brand new “Study & Work Program” which we hope will help many of our current and future students.

Are we being challenged?

Last update on March 4, 2015.

One of the Bibles I use to study is the Stewardship Study Bible, which was given to me. I am challenged as I read through the passages and then read the commentary sections. In reading Hebrews 10, especially 10:24, "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works" I was challenged. The NIV uses "spur" instead of "provoke." Although I have ridden horses, but am not adept at it, I do understand what a spur can do to a horse when implanted in their hide. They move and sometimes quickly. 

We can ask some of ...

Where Is Your Heart?

Last update on Oct. 27, 2014.

Too long of a time since my last posting.  Please forgive me for that.  I left with the verse, Luke 12:34, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”  We can flip the verse and say, “For where your heart is, there will your treasure be also.”  Where is your heart today? 

Philippians 4:6-7 states, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  Don ...

Where is Your Treasure?

Last update on Aug. 14, 2014.

I write this with a heavy heart because a good friend of my wife and I, Chris, was in a bad motorcycle accident last night.  The doctors operated in an attempt to save his life, but they were unable to do so and he died, leaving behind a wife and five children.  Chris was 40.  I travelled with Chris on 5 short-term mission trips, and we had many discussions about life, evangelism, children, giving, sports, and on and on.  I will miss that, as Chris was like another son to me and my wife. Why do I begin with that ...

Abiding in God

Last update on Aug. 14, 2014.

I ended the last time by stating in order to be a faithful steward, we need to be aligned with God.  To be aligned with God is to “Walk in the Spirit” (Gal. 5:16), which has the meaning of living in the Spirit or being controlled by the Spirit.  John 15:4 states, “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.”  “Abide” in Greek means “to be kept or remain.”  I don’t know about you, but ...

Where is Center?

Last update on Aug. 14, 2014.

The journey began with placing my faith in Jesus Christ.  Has it always been a smooth walk with my Heavenly Father?  No, and I’m confident most, if not all of you, can identify with that.  I strayed from the Lord when I was in college and continued to do so for a few years after college.  It wasn’t until I was married and we started having children that I realized I needed to be the spiritual leader in the home.  There were times when I had a strong Christian walk, but many times it was more about ME ...

I'm Merv Wagner

Last update on Oct. 23, 2014.

As I start this new chapter, as Director of Development for CBC & TS, in the life of my wife and I, we have been on a journey since the summer of 2009.  It began with conviction about the time spent in prayer and the manner of praying.  In the past several years, it was stewardship of what God has given to us.  How are we using what God has given to us?  We have a house, transportation, clothes, food, and so forth through jobs we have that God has given us the ability to execute.  We are very thankful for ...

Let Go and Let God

Last update on Oct. 23, 2014.

idonate picAmericans use more than 78 square miles for storage of excess belongings. That’s enough to fill 45,302 football stadiums to overflowing, and we spend $22 billion per year storing this stuff. We don’t own it – it owns us. How many times have we said to each other, "We need to simplify?” Often the time, cost, and hassle of ridding our lives of accumulated property makes it one of those things we never get around to doing. We have a great answer! Calvary now has a process by which you can go online and list items that you ...
