TUFW: 1992-2009.

It was announced yesterday that our school, Taylor University Fort Wayne, will be closing at the end of this year (May 2009).  Here is the press release about the reasons why.

My heart is broken for this campus – for both students and staff.  But in the midst of ‘hopelessness’ there is still ‘HOPE’ … which is the hope of GOD.  I know that GOD is not done with this campus yet; so we shouldn’t count HIM out.  The word the kept coming today in our prayer group was this: we have yet to see the fullness of GOD’S glory; we will encounter HIM like never before this year, so be ready.

Chris Tomlin’s song, “GOD of this City” keeps coming to mind.  My prayer for this campus is that they realize that no matter what happens, the glory of GOD will continue leading us forth.  Man can close down the buildings, but man cannot close down the glory of our GOD.  “Greater things are yet come … There is no one like our GOD”.

Please keep the staff and students of this college community in your prayers.  Many students have to transfer to different schools … many staff have to find new jobs / relocate … many questions are being asked with few answers.  May GOD’S hand rest over all, lead all, and comfort all.  Thanks.

“GOD of This City (campus)”, by Chris Tomlin:

You’re the God of this city (campus)
You’re the King of these people
You’re the Lord of this nation
You Are

Bridge:
For there is no one like our God
There is no one like our God

Chorus 1:
Greater things have yet to come
Great things are still to be done
In this city (campus)
Greater things are still to come
And greater things are still to be done here

Verse 2:
You’re the Lord of Creation
The Creator of all things
You’re the King above all Kings
You Are

You’re the strength in our weakness
You’re the love to the broken
You’re the joy in the sadness
You Are

Chorus 2:
Greater things have yet to come
Great things are still to be done
In this city (campus)
Where glory shines from hearts alive
With praise for you and love for you
In this city (campus)

Greater things have yet to come
Great things are still to be done
In this city (campus)
Greater things are still to come
And greater things are still to be done here

  1. Yeah, we have been praying for you all – TUFW alumni (Summit, FWBC) here in Japan, too, are feeling the weight of this with you. . .
