This chapter focuses on the many difficulties and changes experienced by the seminary's following its move to Louisville, Kentucky, in 1877. By 1895, none of the seminary's founders remained, marking the end of the institution's first age. The founding faculty steered the seminary through the severest trials. Time after time, when the death of the seminary was at hand, they refused to abandon it, and God blessed their stubborn faithfulness with sufficient support to continue the enterprise, at least until the next crisis. By the early 1890s, their labors and sacrifices succeeded in establishing the seminary on a permanent foundation, with a secure endowment and a marvelous campus.
