|The ministry on this hill began in the late seventies. Bob Warren, a western Kentucky native, returned home from an eight-year pro basketball career to resume farming. Comforted by the wide open spaces and the familiar rolling hills, Bob sensed the Lord leading him into a teaching ministry. The door soon opened for him to begin holding Bible studies in his log cabin. It was at that time that the ministry on The Hill was born.As the Lord continued to increase the ministry, it became obvious that the need for a larger facility was to be prayerfully considered. The first building to go up was the Manna House conference center. Next came the Ark dormitory, followed by the addition of a work shop, a log home for small retreats and sabbaticals, the Lodge Dormitory, the Library Meeting Room and Dormitory, and other outdoor recreational opportunities. With these additions, the ministry was now equipped to meet the needs of a wide variety of church groups and Christian organizations desiring to gather for Bible studies, retreats, conferences, and camps.|
|Bob, along with his wife, Kim, and son, Benjamin, have seen God’s favor steadily increase the ministry. Joining them in their full-time service is Brent Armstrong, Glenna Yuill, and Mike Wyatt. They are responsible for overseeing the administrative and maintenance responsibilities associated with the daily operations of the ministry.
Together these individuals, along with many more who volunteer, invest their lives into the lives of others through discipleship. A board of directors continues to provide wonderful guidance and counsel, making sure the ministry holds true to God’s Word and properly uses all resources entrusted to its care.
Statement of Philosophy
This is why B.A.S.I.C. Training exists. All else is secondary:
We are not a church, but are concerned about the evangelism of the lost and the edification of the saved.
