History & Purpose
Atlanta Bible College originated from the Bible Training School operated by the National Bible Institution from 1923 until 1932 and located in Oregon, IL. During the economic depression of the 1930s the school was closed. In 1939 the school reopened and the reorganized school was named Oregon Bible College in 1942. In 1991 the college relocated from Oregon, IL to Morrow, GA and was renamed Atlanta Bible College.
It is not clear when the Alumni Association was formed, but publications show that it was in existence in 1947. The current version of the Constitution of the Association was first adopted in January 1962.
According to the Constitution the Association exists:
- To maintain contacts with classmates and school and community;
- To preserve school traditions and build true school spirit;
- To improve the school plant and curriculum;
- To do everything possible to work with the General Conference and aid fellow association members and pastors in their local fields;
- To suggest and endeavor to set forth ways of personal spiritual development;
- To determine by survey of graduates the strengths and weaknesses of the curricular offering of the school, in the light of the educational and work experience of the graduates,
