The third annual Charles Ryrie Lecture Series took place October 23-26, 2018. Calvary’s own professor, Dr. Tommy Ice, was the speaker for the four-day event. He is the Program Director for the Bachelor in Bible & Theology, and he serves as the Executive Director of the Pre-Trib Research Center. Dr. Ice spoke on Tuesday about the importance of Bible prophecy. In the final three sessions, he gave overviews of the pre-trib rapture, tribulation, millennium, and the eternal state. Each message was filled with good information, and students had the opportunity to ask questions at the end. The week concluded with Day of Prayer as students spent the morning praying with faculty and staff before attending the final session.

Each Tuesday during the summer, several Calvary staff members step away from their desks and pitch in to help with various maintenance projects around the campus. They clean in the dorm for the first few Tuesdays. Most weeks some people spend time mowing, weed-eating, and pulling weeds. This summer staff members have painted numerous spots and stained a gazebo as well.

Because of the library move this spring, one of the Tuesday Work Day projects was putting together some additional shelves. Other staff members worked heartily at moving furniture to the CABRE.
Last summer I told you that the building formerly known as the Seminary was being remodeled. At that time, we were planning to move the library and academic center to that space. God had other plans! Now the old seminary building has a new name to go with a new purpose. The CABRE (pronounced SAY-bur) is the Center for Advanced Biblical Research and Engagement. It houses the Pre-Trib Research Center, Center for Interdisciplinary Creation Studies, and the Burnham Center for Global Engagement.
