William Culbertson 1905-1971 Born in Philadelphia and educated there at the Theological Seminary of the Reformed Episcopal Church and Temple Univer- sity, he pastored Reformed Episcopal churches in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. At age 31, his denomination elected him bishop of the New York and Philadelphia Synod. For 23 years (1948-1971), Dr. Culbertson served God as president of Moody Bible Institute. Under his leadership, the Moody Bible Insti- tute grew steadily, increasing its day school enrollment to over 1,000 students. Five major buildings were added to the Chicago campus.         Dr. Culbertson's ministry extended beyond Chicago as he spoke at Bible conferences around the world and also served as president of the Accrediting Association of Bible Colleges. In 1971, he was appointed the school's first chancellor. Above all, he lived in God's Word, and therefore always had a word from God. As they trained at Moody, thou- sands of young people for a quarter of a century looked to William Culbertson as their spiritual father because of his godly example.         His last words, "God...God...yes!" concluded a life characterized by affirmative responses to God's commands.
