Like autumn leaves, good things are “falling” into place for Tennessee Bible College.


Good food, good fellowship and a good cause. 


Plus, a good man will be recognized for his work of more than four decadesTBC’s professor of religious education, Glenn B. Ramsey. 


He is the guest of honor at the annual Friends of Tennessee Bible College Benefit Dinner to be held Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. at the Leslie Town Centre.


Tickets are $75 each, and proceeds go toward TBC scholarships, mission works and school operations.


During his many years at TBC, Ramsey has witnessed the good that comes from fundraising activities such as the benefit dinner.

Good students, good graduates and good Christian workers.

And he’s happy to be a part of it.
