1951 Pacific Bible Institute of Fresno Yearbook ~ Volume 6 ( Sixth Year )
Pacific Bible Institute of Fresno came into being in response to a long-felt need on the part of the Mennonite Brethren Church on the Pacific Coast to have a Bible School where the young people might avail themselves of a sound Biblical training in an institution organically related to their own conference. On 18 September 1944, the Pacific Bible Institute of Fresno was formally opened with an enrollment of 27 students in Fresno, CA in a large residence at 1095 N. Van Ness. Six faculty members, four full-time and two part-time, had been engaged by the Board of Directors. The enrollment increased to 35 students during the second semester of the school year. A very good hardback yearbook with about 60-100 pages and none of the usual autographs and writings typically found in a school yearbook.
