Miracle on 14th Street

Miracle on 14th Street is the life story of Kenneth Cable and the miracles that saved Manhattan Christian College to become what it is today. The author served the college as Vice President during the Miracle of 14th Street and to this day is blessed by this longtime friendship.

Kenneth Cable was born into poverty in 1935 during the dust storms of Oklahoma. There are many lessons to be learned from his mentors while growing up in Oklahoma and Kansas. While still a student at Manhattan Christian College he became the minister of Glenn Park Christian Church in 1955 where he served until 1972. He took the church from a handful of people to over a thousand members. Kenneth married Phyliss Jean Alexander in 1956 who became his, “partner in ministry” for the next fifty plus years. Kenneth as always contributed his success in ministry to his partnership with Phyliss.

Kenneth has always been attracted to great challenges. He left Glenn Park and accepted the position of Vice President of Christian Missionary Fellowship in Indianapolis. The organization was on the brink of collapse and Kenneth rejuvenated their mission and raised the support for their continued operation. Today CMF is a thriving and well-funded missionary sending organization.

His next challenge, he accepted the position of Vice President of Friends University in Wichita, Kansas even though he was told they would probably have to close due to the lack of finances. In less than a year Kenneth raised the funds to eliminate their debt and underwrite their future. All three of these positions were used by God to prepare him for his greatest challenge, the President of Manhattan Christian College.

The reader will be blessed by reading about Kenneth’s faith and perseverance, and especially the Miracle Campaign that saved Manhattan Christian College from foreclosure. Manhattan is where Kenneth continued his very successful service until his retirement. His life will cause the reader to think about their own legacy.
