This has helped my find people I'd lost contact with for years - very fun. I finished a BA in theatre at the University of Sioux Falls in the spring of 2000 and since have been managing Great Plains Coffee Roasting Company in Sioux Falls. It may appear that there is no connection between theatre and business management, however life at this coffee shop and maybe all coffee shops is nothing short of drama. I am leaving Sioux Falls shortly to pursue graduate studies, hopefully back in Vancouver with my beloved Hiller family. posted 02/01/03

I'm not sure when we were last in touch. We now have 4 children ages 4 - Hannah, 8 - Danielle, 11 - Andrew and 14 - Elliott. Since leaving Taylor, I studied at Northwest Bible College (Bth) and at SouthEastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest NC (MDiv). I was ordained in 1993 and serve in the Church of the Lutheran Brethren of America. I pastored in Calgary in 1992, Sexsmith, AB 1995 and in July of 1997 came to Chandler, Arizona as the founding pastor for a new church. This is where we are now. It's going slow as there was no core group when we came and I've been solo pastor so far but we thank the Lord for seven families that have come together as a core group and we are also thankful that we will be able to have youth and young adult servant teams with us for the coming year. Please pray for us.

After my years at NABC, I returned to North Vancouver to get myself together and work. I accidentally fell into aquatics and made it a career. I worked as a lifeguard and instructor for years and even spent two summers in the high arctic working in Inuit communities. I ran Canada's most Northerly beach in Kugluktuk, NWT and a pool in Cambridge Bay, NWT. I went back school and graduated from the U of A in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts in Recreation. I moved to Victoria and work as the Aquatic Coordinator for Recreation Oak Bay. God has been very good to me over the years. Love to hear form you! (posted 11/04)

The church is an integral part of the community here and the people are responding well to the church's message of Christ. These are exciting times. Tourism is the main industry here, so if you're ever out this way, please stop by to see us. Thanks to this web page I now feel a lot more connected to the NAB world again. It's been a long time. Thanks everybody for 2 great years at the college. It gave me a strong base for further church ministry. Posted 09/02

I am so excited to see this on the web. What a great way to keep up to date on information. In 1989, I moved to California to be closer to my brother and sister in-law and my nieces. In 1997, I took a 2-week trip to Ecuador with Sunrise Community Church in Sacramento and God used that trip to call me to the mission field. I am now a nurse at Hospital Vozandes del Oriente in Shell, Ecuador. I went to language school in Costa Rica and started ministry here in Shell January 2000. God has been really working in my life since I graduated from Taylor 15 years ago. I know that God has ordained every step to bring me to the point where I now am. As I look back I can see how He has put every step of the plan together. My greetings to everyone! God's richest blessings! I would love to hear from anyone I was in school with from 81-83.

I graduated with an M Div. and an M A. in Counseling from NABS in 1986. I was pastor of youth and family ministry for 6 years at South Calgary Community Church ('86-'92). There I met my wife Lynda at a CE conference (yeah, Lou Sawchenko), and went on a short term mission trip to Russia in 1992. That was life altering, and after some further training, we became full time missionaries with the C&MA. During our first term '94-98, Sarah was born in Moscow in 1995. We studied Russian for 2 years, and then started a church plant in Krasnodar. During our furlough year, Katelyn was born in 1999. Now we are back in Russia, in a city called Maikop.

Well, the B.A.R. was the first of three degrees for me, the next two being a B.A. double-majoring in Economics and Political Science, and an M.B.A. in Finance and Management Science. I also took a year of law school, but realized something very important at the end of the first year -- I liked the study of law, but hated the idea of being a lawyer! Since then, I've married a wonderful woman named Karen, started raising Shih-Tzus ("Gadget" and "Gizmo") and created several consulting firms as well as a software development company, all of which have kept me quite busy. I'm still involved in I.T. consulting and software development, but middle-age is starting to slow me down a *bit*. And yes, I'm still into photography, for those who remember me with a camera glued to my face -- only now, the wonders of modern technology mean I can enjoy the "digital darkroom." I do appreciate living in the 21st Century. With brief stints elsewhere, Edmonton's been home since my days at N.A.B.C. I'd welcome anyone who wants to contact me from the years I spent at the college. God bless you all.
