“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” Matthew 16:19.

This is exactly what has taken place—and while those who so eagerly receive and transmit these keys are all very young, ages ranging from 12 to 17, they demonstrate a real and holy boldness. Those pictured here are students of the Peterson-Warren Academy in Inkster, Michigan. They were the primary speakers for two sets of evangelistic meetings—one at their school, and one at the City Temple Seventh-day Adventist Church in Detroit, Michigan. Each meeting ran for ten days. They were trained in this special evangelistic program by their Principal and Bible teacher, Elder Larry Key.

Elder Key is the founder of Keys to The Prophecies. For years he has preached and taught on the Prophecies of Daniel and Revelation, focusing on what the Bible refers to as Last Day Events of Earth’s History. The Keys to The Prophecies program takes the inspiration of these special books and makes them understandable to student evangelists. They in turn preach the Word to all who will listen. Currently, four persons are taking Bible studies in the aftermath of these meetings, and will be baptized soon.

And it doesn’t stop there! The students are in training under Elder Key’s instruction for an “Unlock Revelation” series next Spring. He is also preparing them to do radio evangelism. They will be going live on air in a few weeks with a student radio evangelistic program. He is training them for all of these frontiers.

This dynamic ministry embodies what Ellen G. White counseled years ago:

“The student should learn to view the word as a whole, and to see the relation of its parts. He should gain a knowledge of its grand central theme, of God’s original purpose for the world, of the rise of the great controversy, and of the work of redemption. He should understand the nature of the two principles that are contending for supremacy, and should learn to trace their working through the records of history and prophecy, to the great consummation. He should see how this controversy enters into every phase of human experience; how in every act of life he himself reveals the one or the other of the two antagonistic motives; and how, whether he will or not, he is even now deciding upon which side of the controversy he will be found.”

Ellen G. White, Education, page 190.
