Spring Convocation

Dear University Community,


We want to welcome you back to another incredible community opportunity to serve one another and our students. As we find ourselves gathering for another year of service to our Lord, let us be encouraged to pray for one another, build up one another, and join with one another in making a difference in the lives of our students. We are writing to invite you to attend our University Convocation on Wednesday, January 23, at 10:00 a.m. in the Special Events Center.


We are asking all faculty, staff and students to be present as we commission our work together in the sight of God for the purpose of spiritual formation. Please close all offices, reschedule meetings, team practices, and other events for this one hour. It is our desire to start the year in a special service of prayer and worship to honor the Lord in our work. (Faculty will not process and will not need regalia.)


Our cabinet is excited to serve you this year and to see what the Lord will do through us all, as we honor him with our time, our talents, and worship. Thank you for your commitment to corporate spiritual formation this year. May the Lord’s favor rest on the work of our hands, as we honor Him this year, in this place.
