Wed, Sep 3 2008

LeTourneau University will host keynote speaker Dr. Larry Crabb at an international conference of about 800 Christian higher education leaders June 1-4, 2009, at the university’s main campus in Longview. Student affairs professionals from colleges all over the world will convene at the annual conference for the Association for Christians in Student Development. 
Crabb is a leading Christian psychologist, counselor, author and Bible teacher whose best-selling books include Inside Out, Finding God, Connecting and Men & Women: Enjoying the Difference.
In the early 1980s as a faculty member of Grace Theological Seminary, Crabb founded the Institute of Biblical Counseling. He founded the New Way Ministries and is a distinguished scholar-in-residence at Colorado Christian University.
The ACSD conference has been held at other top-notch CCCU schools, including Wheaton, Taylor, Biola, George Fox, Westmont, Gordon, and John Brown in years past. This year will be the first time LETU has hosted.
“We are excited about hosting a higher education conference that brings leaders and professionals from around the world to our campus,” said Doug Wilcoxson, vice president for Student Affairs. “The Belcher Center provides a marquee facility that complements our excellent housing facilities. Our hosting this conference exposes people to the beauty, the opportunities and the hospitality of East Texas.”
