LETU Invited to Attend Spiritual Formation Symposium in Canada

Tue, Jun 22 2010

LeTourneau University’s President Dr. Dale A. Lunsford and other LETU staff and faculty members have been invited by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities to attend the CCCU Symposium on Spiritual Formation, June 24-26 held at Trinity Western University in Langley, British Columbia.
The symposium is intended to identify what defines spiritual formation and how it is applied by personnel responsible for recognizing it on a CCCU-member campus.   Schools will share and evaluate what works and doesn’t work, what are the best practices in assisting students in their spiritual growth. 
“Spiritual growth is something you cannot make happen,” said Harold Carl, LETU chaplain. “However, we are able to create the right atmosphere to promote spiritual growth. The CCCU invited schools that already have lively spiritual growth. That is why LETU was chosen to participate in this conference. We stand out as an institution.”
Representing LETU at the symposium with Lunsford and Carl will be Executive Vice President for External Relations Marila Palmer, Associate Professor of Psychology Melanie Roudkovski, and Dean of Students Corey Ross. The symposium will include small peer discussion groups and larger plenary sessions.
The CCCU is an international association of intentionally Christian colleges and universities founded in 1976 with 38 members. It has grown to represent 109 colleges in North America and 75 affiliate institutions in 24 other countries. Its purpose is to advance the cause of Christ-centered higher education and to help our institutions transform lives by faithfully relating scholarship and service to biblical truth.
