Today Marks 109 years since PBTS was laid on our founders heart

It was a 109 years ago. Thursday, April 5, 1900 was the place and Hazelton, Pennsylvania was the place. A 28 year old John Adelbert Davis had been conducting campaigns in the city when God laid on his heart a Bible School similar to that of Moody's Bible Institute that he had attended in 1893. Shortly later he went up to another campaign in Elmira, NY where he was given the one dollar from Mrs. Crossan that confirmed the vision was from the LORD. That summer the first classes of PBTS were begun over a store on the corner of Main Street and Arch in Johnson City (then Lestershire), NY.
