Since our first graduation ceremony in May 2006, we have been recording the addresses given by our graduation speakers. We are making these addresses available here because we believe that you will find them challenging and inspiring, and they provide a unique window into what makes Eternity Bible College special. Watch highlights from many of the graduation address in the video “The Story of Eternity as Told at Graduation” or see the full addresses below.
