All are invited to attend Convocation services on Wednesday, August 20, 2014, in the Ferneau Center (gymnasium) of Pelfrey Hall at Central Christian College of the Bible in Moberly at 7:00 p.m. The ceremony may also be watched live online at www.cccb.edu/live.
This year’s speaker is Dr. David Fincher, President of CCCB. David was named President in April and has been on the staff at Central since 1996 when he joined the faculty. He taught for 5 years and developed and taught 12 different courses. In addition, he served as the College’s Information Technology Director. He was named the Academic Dean/Vice President of Academics in 2001 and served in that capacity for 12 years.
His convocation message will challenge the students, staff, and faculty of the College to follow God’s calling by reflecting on the experience of the prophet Jonah. “We must be aware of the calls God requires us to answer, how we can resist God’s call, and how God graciously reminds us of His call,” commented Dr. Fincher.
Dr. Fincher is a graduate of Central Christian College of the Bible and was a member of the Class of 1993. He earned a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology with a double minor in Bible and Music. He completed a Master of Arts in New Testament from Lincoln Christian Seminary in 1996. He later pursued a Doctor of Philosophy in Communication from University of Missouri-Columbia and graduated in 2003.
David and his wife Sandy have three children, Adam (age 18), Anna (age 15) and Alex (age 13).
