Class of 1974
David Stone ('74) and his wife Nancy currently serve as area missionaries for The Foursquare Church in the Caribbean. Life Pacific College is committed to provide opportunities for students to make the globe their classroom and learn beyond the confines of the campus. Here, David shares how his time at LIFE prepared him for the mission field. “My time at Life Bible College was very positive. It was a really good experience for me that laid a solid foundation for my life and kept me on track. The theological and practical training I received at LIFE was very helpful in preparing me for ministry, and I was able to apply the biblical lessons I learned in the classroom to my practical, daily life.
During my time at LIFE, I went on a missions trip led by Dick Scott to Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Colombia, and Panama. Going on that trip was instrumental in confirming my call to missions. Now, serving as the area missionary for the Caribbean, I am involved in leadership training and development, church planting, and networking with churches across the United States, the Caribbean, and in neighboring countries.
I highly encourage all LIFE alumni to support the college with prayer and finances when you have the opportunity. Also, please ask the Lord to raise up new missionaries and release sufficient funds for ministry. Lastly, consider getting involved in local missions trips and supporting missions through your local church.”
