The Restored Church of God News and Updates, 22 Mar 2013 [cached]
A completed new book, Mounting Worldwide Crisis in Agriculture, by Dale L. Schurter, trumpets a truly dire warning of the severe damage that man has inflicted on Earth's soil-the ultimate source of all food.
This absolutely fascinating and thoroughly researched and documented volume introduces and carefully explains the devastating cumulative worldwide effects of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, including insecticides, herbicides and fungicides. It exposes the truth behind Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), monoculture farming and other manmade techniques used, as well as revealing the sobering implications now confronting all nations. But the book also brings to light the wonderful good news of how our planet's ecosystem can and will be renewed by God-not men.
Mr. Schurter, the world's foremost authority on biblical agriculture, has traveled to dozens of nations teaching sustainable husbandry based on God's laws. As an ordained minister of The Restored Church of God, he directs the Agriculture Education and Research Institute (AERI), a program of the Church's educational arm, Ambassador Center.

"In the spring of 1966 Mr. Schurter headed up the [educational, research, production and extension] program…and continued as Ag Department head until 1975…The four areas of effort during the first seven years were research, with a view to recapturing true values in agriculture, student education, extension services (including some soil testing and fertilizer sales) and production."
Outstanding results: Above, Mr. Schurter is pictured in a buckwheat field during a visit to Guyana, South America, where he worked with government leaders and local officials to increase the level of food production in the nation.

Mr. Schurter and colleagues also organized outreach programs and informational workshops designed to educate the public about biblical agriculture techniques and help those who wanted to implement the practices in their gardens or on their farms.
For his work serving the Big Sandy community, Mr. Schurter was awarded the Upshur County Building Award.
While visiting world leaders, Mr. Armstrong would often invite them to Big Sandy to tour the farm and ranch, and Mr. Schurter would be their escort.
From 1978 to 1982, Mr. Schurter visited 23 countries around the world (many several times) to teach biblical agriculture. To date, he has taught these principles in 40 nations.
Through the Ambassador Foundation of the Worldwide Church of God, a project very special to Mr. Armstrong, Mr. Schurter and others conducted work in Thailand.
Mr. Schurter designed and helped implement a successful soil equilibrium and crop rotation program for the region.
Another example of Mr. Schurter's overseas work involved establishing community development efforts in Guyana, South America. At the time, he was working with then-Prime Minister Hamilton Green, national government officials, educational instructors, and local chieftains to augment the level of sustainable food production in the country. These efforts, the broadest project he has undertaken, yielded a 300 percent citrus increase and an average 45 percent increase in other crops with extensive involvement of the local population, in addition to other nationwide benefits.
These are a few examples of similar work accomplished in many other countries as well.
After Mr. Armstrong died in 1986, Mr. Schurter established the Agricultural Consulting Institute, Inc.
For contributions in agricultural education and field instruction, and advice in soil fertility and animal husbandry, Mr. Schurter was made an honorary citizen of the city of Bilka, Ukraine. He was also inducted as a charter member of the "Wall of Fame" of Acres U.S.A.

A booklet called World Crisis in Agriculture was originally co-authored by Mr. Schurter in 1969 to use as a tool for teaching people worldwide about God's principles of agriculture.
The concept for the book you hold in your hand was inspired by the results of the work accomplished through the agriculture program, recorded in Mr. Schurter's master's thesis at Ambassador College.

News of Those Once Affiliated with the Global Church of God, 7 April 2006 [cached]
Before telling the story of my previous affiliation with the United Church of God (UCG), I first want to urge you, brethren: do not allow slander and false accusations against Mr. David Pack, Mr. Dale Schurter or RCG to keep you from returning to the "faith which was once delivered" (Jude 1:3)!...
01/11/12 p.m. As many of you probably have heard, last Sabbath, Dale Schurter announced he left UCG to join RCG. He has made a few posts on a website that seems currently dedicated to this matter supporting RCG.
Other than rehashing some RCG statistics, one of the things Dale Schurter wrote in his public resignation letter was:
As far as Dale Schurter goes, he and I met at the Feast of Tabernacles years ago in the WCG days. After hearing him speak a couple of times, I had concerns that he did not quite get the big picture. In my opinion, his decision to support a group like RCG confirms my feelings long ago.
On 1/9/12 Dale Schurter posted:
I'm so thankful to be working in The Church of God, with the Government of God in place, the Church that has the vision of striving to awaken brethren out of their slumber, while also powerfully preaching the Gospel of the coming Kingdom of God to a spiritually and physically sick and dying world.
If Dale Schurter really felt that government was such an issue, why would he have stayed in a group like UCG for more than a decade and a half? (For more on governance, please see the article Polycarp, Herbert W. Armstrong, and Roderick C. Meredith on Church Government.) Also, since public proclaimation of the gospel had initially been RCG's third priority, and apparently has not been Dale Schurter's for a long time, this is somewhat odd for him to now claim is so important to him.
In a post today, Dale Schurter wrote:
We will see if Dale Schurter will realize the truth about RCG and David Pack in this age or not.
