Bible School 2011-12 – “Great are the works of the Lord.”

by Luke Thomas - Bible School Principal

If you haven’t had your fika today, I encourage you to take a few minutes, kick up the feet, pour some coffee or any other beverage of choice and check out this Fika Time video that captures the faces and memories of Bible School 2011-2012.

My name is Luke Thomas, I am the principal of the Bible school here at Holsby where we’ve just said good-bye to our Bible school students

who are not only taking memories of Holsby back home with them, but we trust the aroma of a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our theme verse for this year was Psalms 111:2: “Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them.” There are many things that define God’s works, but the work that He wants us to know most is His enabling a personal relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. We are grateful that the work we delight in studying is also the work we personally know, pass on and watch develop in our own lives as staff here at Holsby, as well as in the students God gives us year after year. The few days of good-byes at the end of Bible school are never easy, but they are good because we know these students are to be “ambassadors of Christ” throughout the world and in all areas of society letting Christ share of Himself through each of them.

About Luke Thomas - Bible School Principal

One of my favorite words when thinking about the Christian journey is the word “discovery.” When departing every moment of every day in dependence on Jesus Christ, one discovers a worthwhile adventure that defines authentic Christianity. The gospel saves us and the gospel grows us, and that is what excites me about life and what takes place on a daily basis at Holsby in the lives of students, staff, and guests. The Lord has blessed me to enjoy this journey with my wonderful wife Cheryl and our and our children Emmalise, Ember and Hudson. I met Cheryl while serving as an English teacher in Mongolia, where we then spent our first year of marriage and later returned to her home in southern Kansas to work on the family farm. I grew up in Colorado at a Torchbearer school by the name of Ravencrest, which instilled in me a love for the Torchbearers ministry that has now led us to Holsby. On our irresponsible days we enjoy about anything related to sports and the outdoors. I particularly enjoy a good soccer game, being on a mountain trail, catching up on a good book at the café, or any type of casual time with friends and family. I also enjoy an occasional blow on the bagpipes when there is an eager ear to hear.
