ROBBIE BIAS My years at SPCS fostered many great memories. What a blessing it was to attend a Christian school in the turbulent times of the 1970s. I am the music minister and assistant to the pastor at Northside Pentecostal Church in Fairfield, IL. It has truly been a long time coming but God has placed me at the right place at the right time. It could have been a lot sooner had I been more obedient to His word. I was much too interested in having a good time when I was young. To all current students, please make the most of your Christian walk while you are young. These are the best years of your life, give them to Jesus Christ. You will never regret it.
