For many months now, it has become known, at least among manyhere at headquarters and perhaps most
the areacoordinators, that
hoped to find some method by which
couldcommunicate evermore closely with area coordinators, senior pastors,and the pastors
local churches as well.In our area coordinator meetings here at headquarters in thenext few days,

the Big S_andy campus for threeyears)
that he will now enter the doctoral program at theUniversity of Southern California with the goal of obtaining a Ph.D.in speech comminications.Mr. Dart had requested quite sometime agothat he be given a sabbatical at sometime in the future. In orderthat he may pursue the doctorate at
as rapidly as possible,he isbeing granted a sabbatical commencina immediately.
