Banjul Bible Training Centre (BBTC), which gives biblical training to Gambians and non-Gambians in The Gambia, recently held its 21st graduation ceremony at the Joint Officers Mess in Kotu.

The ceremony, witnessed by members of various Christian denominations from churches in the country, ended in the climax of giving out certificates and prizes to graduands and deserving students.

Speaking at the ceremony, the director of BBTC, Rev Dr Alieu Bayo, told the gathering that the school has a curriculum it follows, which includes teaching students how to be good neighbours and citizens, who would always pay tax to the State, as responsible and honest Christians, God-fearing in whatever they do.

He admonished the graduands to embark on further searching for true knowledge of the Word as their graduation was the beginning of the journey of life and knowledge of God.

He further urged them to be honest and god-fearing so as to be role models in society the young ones could proudly emulate in doing good deeds.

The guest speaker, Pastor Uyi Loveday Evguomwan, in his remarks on the occasion, said there was nothing like indigenization in the Ministry as “it is not in the Bible”.

He said one could not talk about healing without making mention of Jesus Christ, adding that the graduands could do more than what they have done, as they give their lives to God and live by His Word.

Graduating from bible school is just the beginning of the journey, because there is task ahead of them, as vision is not an option to choose; it is the great important task ahead, he said.
