Dr. Dino Pedrone: Some of the things I have found in this subject is this; I pastored one church for 25 years, I went there as a young man of 24 years old. And I remember there was a woman there who became one of my dearest of friends. At the time she was in her 50's and she saw me and saw how young I was and asked how can we learn anything from anybody so young?

President Dino Pedrone of Davis College As one of the oldest Bible colleges in America, Upstate New York's Davis College in Binghamton has trained and empowered countless men and women to wholehearted and devoted service focused on spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and touching the lives of people all over the world with His light and love.
"Through the ministry of Davis College, it's been exciting to see God at work in sometimes impossible situations, shifting outcomes for the better and doing more than we could ever have imagined," said Dino Pedrone, ninth president of the over-100-year-old college. "The hand of God continues to bless this ministry, and I couldn't be more excited about the future of the college and the remarkable days ahead as we continue to bring God all the glory in everything that we do."
Davis College, the only fully-accredited Bible College in New York, is accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education, regionally accredited by the Middle States Commission of Higher Education, and by the Regents of the University of the State of New York. It offers three options for pursuing higher education opportunities which include attending classes onsite, becoming a student at one of the 18 offsite locations, or registering online for one of the over 60 courses in Bible and Theology, Liberal Arts, and Professional Studies.
The college's most recent underlying theme, "Pursue God," has emphasized the priority of Scripture and a biblical worldview as students are encouraged to get to know who God is as described in Psalm 19 and to know Him so as to live a fully committed Christian life, Pedrone said. Davis College
"It's impossible to live a Christian life in ourselves but instead we must allow God to live through us as we become broken, yielded vessels and then His power becomes alive in us like dynamite and we can live victorious lives," Pedrone said. "We're all on a journey and we want our students in this academic environment to recognize Christ is all and is in all. We begin our classes in prayer and professors dialogue with our students in ways that allow valuable lessons to be taught about life and living for Christ.
Pedrone has seen many changes in higher education since he graduated in 1967 from Davis College, which was then named Practical Bible Training School. A native of Binghamton, he previously was the pastor of two churches for a combined service of over 40 years. He also served as president of the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools before returning to Davis College in 2008 as President.
"We've had significant growth in our enrollment for the past six semesters as we look for and develop many different opportunities to train students who are called to be pastors, worship leaders, and educators. We even help homeschooled high school students take classes that can be applied to their college education," said Pedrone. "One example of a unique opportunity that the Lord has allowed us to be involved in for a few years is the training of pastors in a French-speaking Baptist Church in New York City and teaching our curriculum in French, Spanish, and Creole so that these pastors can earn Associate and Bachelor Degrees," Pedrone said.
The college has also been on the forefront of helping students with the financial challenges of higher education. It recently launched the Financial Liberty Exercised (FLEX) program which will be offered to all incoming freshman in the fall of 2014 so they can freely choose a career and not worry about their ability to pay back school loans. The program offers assistance to students and parents in paying back loans based on a graduate's income if they do not meet specified income thresholds.
Pedrone said that because he believes one of the greatest challenges facing higher education institutions is student loan debt, the college is proactive in finding ways to help students with the cost of their education. Approximately 92 percent of Davis College students receive scholarships and 98 percent receive financial aid.
"As our society changes dramatically and no longer favors the Judeo Christian values, we are in a battle for the truth and solid Biblical education is so important. There is a great need for building relationships in our communities to bring the knowledge and truth through the Gospel to our world," Pedrone said. "We have a wonderful opportunity to help our students to spread the light in this darkness and come up with solutions as they share the grace of God and see how we can abound more than we could imagine in what we have in Christ."
Pedrone said that God has opened many doors for the college to grow and advance the Gospel. At this time, the college has raised a quarter of its Capital Campaign goal of $2 million which will go toward completing the renovation of nearby property on over four acres and will include a 500-seat chapel, several classrooms, and offices. In addition, the school recently announced that it has become a full member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) Division II for its intercollegiate athletic programs.
"We are so thankful for the partnerships with so many organizations and ministries like The Good News, Christian newspaper in Western, Central and Upstate NY. I would encourage your readership to come out and hear me speak as I travel throughout the area and learn more about Davis College and the many opportunities God is giving us to serve Him," Pedrone said.
