Vennard College

1951, Chicago. During a faculty/staff meeting to pray about the future of the school, at about 10:00 PM, the meeting was interrupted by a phone call which President Jessop took. When he returned he quoted Isa. 65:24: "Before they call, I will answer, and while they are yet speaking, I will hear." Kletzing College in Iowa was closing and the campus had been offered as a gift to CEI.
