Dear Alberta Bible College “family, ”

We are contacting you because we know you care about the mission and well-being of Alberta Bible College. We thank you for your partnership with the College and its ministry. We want to take this opportunity to inform you of a recent change.

The Board of Trustees has decided to conclude with immediate effect the tenure by contract of ABC’s president, Dr. William Raccah. It was not all that long ago that we announced our calling Dr. Raccah to be President of Alberta Bible College, and his acceptance of the call. While we are concerned that this may lead to an impression of instability, circumstances have dictated our taking this step with regret. We recognize that Dr. Raccah worked very hard during his ministry with us to further ABC’s mission, and as a Board we offer our thanks for the time and energy he gave to the school.

Understandably, this raises questions about the current state and future direction of Alberta Bible College. Let us assure you that we, too, are concerned. We don’t have answers for all your questions, but we do have a plan and process for moving toward answers. Please accept our commitment to you that we are addressing the situation, keeping in mind students and staff and ABC’s constituency of churches and supporters, second only to our concern for ABC’s mission. We are seeking God’s wisdom.

Let us address, now, two pressing concerns. Firstly, the question of who will lead in the school’s day to day business, for at least the balance of the College’s academic year. By motion of the Board, in the short term the College will be led by the “Directors’ Cabinet” composed of Jean Myers, Director of Administrative Services; Sandra Osborne, Director of Student Development; and Ron Fraser, Director of Learning Services.

Secondly, lest there be any doubt and for greater certainty, classes will continue through the end of the semester, and qualified students will graduate. All classes will continue and conclude as scheduled, including any that Dr. Raccah was teaching. As usual, the academic year will conclude with our commencement weekend (April 26-28).

We ask for your help. We Trustees are just that – trustees of a College that belongs to its constituency of churches, supporters, alumni, faculty and staff, students, and, above all, Jesus, Lord of the Church. Please partner with us in prayer for Alberta Bible College. Pray for staff, pray for students, and pray for us Trustees that we might have wisdom in the coming weeks and months. Pray for Dr. William Raccah as he considers new opportunities.

If you have concerns or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact any trustee.

Sincerly
Bruce Scruggs
Chair, Board of Trustees
