Archivist's notes, 2007: Development Event. Dr. Snider opens, announcing that "there will be a video in a few minutes that will tell you about Trinity Western." He comments on the interest in Pacific Rim countries - like Korea - regarding establishing some kind of affiliation with Trinity. He shares his own vision for Trinity, which includes academic excellence, the "student development approach" (that students learn as much outside the classroom setting as inside, so the whole environment is key), and accomplishing both of these from a biblical perspective. "We are here tonight to thank you for standing with us." Snider states that the motto for the current year, "truth unto godliness," is taken from Titus 1. He introduces the video. The recording is interrupted.

TWU Fall Banquet: Chuck Colson - October 30

Audio 24a consists of the following recording:
Title: Chuck Colson – “God Demands Our Obedience”
Chuck Colson, a Christian leader, cultural commentator, and author who served as Special Counsel for President Richard Nixon from 1969 to 1973, speaks at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver during Trinity's Fall Banquet. He opens with a joke about being tape-recorded - referring to Watergate. He also tells several humorous anecdotes. He poses the question, “What can a fellow believe in now?” Colson discusses the breakdown of government and loss of trust in society. He discusses how modern society lives as if God is dead. Colson examines what it means to be a Christian in a religious sense and not merely a situational or cultural sense. The Church must stand on truth, on Scripture. Colson also examines the Trinity Western Statement of Purpose and the importance of the mission to create leaders who think as Christians constantly. He discusses how God has not used his triumphs, but the great defeat of his life - going to prison - to impact others. Colson argues that it is not what we do, but what God chooses to do through us, and our obedience to Him. He then examines what it means to love God. Finally, Colson calls out to the people not to simply sit smugly and be saved, but to go out and live as members of the Church of Christ in the middle of the decaying Kingdom of the world. President Snider thanks Colson for coming and makes a few closing remarks.
