LABTS first opened its doors in 1927, with 24 students and no permanent campus. During the first few years, the faculty and administration willingly forwent salaries and sold their land to keep the seminary open. The first president, Dr. William A. Matthews, tells the story of his own attempt to sell a piece land in 1928. The tract of 35 acres flooded easily, and Matthews despaired of ever selling it—until a goat farm decided that it was exactly suited for their purposes and offered him an excellent price. “Never again shall we say that any land is good for nothing,” he wrote at the time, “because it may be good for raising goats!” The Lord was faithful to provide.

The Health Center is staffed by a registered nurse, and is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (excluding holidays). Here, students may obtain advice and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses, as well as over-the-counter medications for temporary symptom relief. The Health Center is not equipped to handle serious conditions or medical emergencies.
