Lake; A.A. Allen; Smith Wigglesworth; Dr. Roy M. Gray; Martha Wing Robinson; Madame Jeanne Guyonne and more.

Students learn to discern between scriptural truth and traditional errors that crept into Christianity. Students are inspired to stand up for their faith under trying conditions and persecution. By honouring “God’s Generals” of the past, students will grow in respect for each other and their fellow witnesses of the present.
