On May 5, 2015, in front of a full auditorium at Bayview Baptist Church, four more students of Atlantic Coast Baptist College walked across the platform to receive their diplomas: Emily Sypniewski (Brick, NJ, One-year Bible Certificate), Sarah Fenkart (Brick, NJ, One-year Bible Certificate), Joshua Davis (Brooklyn, CT, Associate’s in Music and Bible), and Peter Kratofilow IV (Philadelphia, PA, Bachelor’s in Pastoral Theology and Bible).

Pastor Mike Weigel of Ocean County Baptist Church in Toms River, NJ was presented with an honorary doctorate of ministry degree, and Pastor Dominic Pennachietti (Philadelphia, PA) preached the commencement message.

All of the graduates have plans to serve the Lord with their lives: Emily plans to return to her church in New Jersey and serve there; Sarah’s plan is to return in the fall to continue her training; Joshua is returning to Connecticut to serve on church staff as a music director; and Peter has several ministry offers and opportunities that he is praying about.


We’d ask that you’d pray with and for all these graduates for God’s will in their lives. We look forward to hearing what God does through them!
