PINEVILLE – The lineup of speakers for the first half of Louisiana College’s 2018 spring chapel services has been outstanding to say the least, school officials say, having featured top pastors, leaders and laypersons from around the state. But, the remaining lineup is as good, and may be even better.
“We are elated to have so many top-notch leaders, pastors and laypersons who ably encourage and challenge our Louisiana College family,” said the school’s President Rick Brewer, noting the “common denominators among these speakers is a love for God, a love for the Bible, and a love for college students.”
Held at the Martin Performing Arts Center, chapel services minister to and encourage freshmen and transfer students each Tuesday and sophomores, juniors and seniors on Thursdays.
Students already have heard Jeff Ginn, pastor, Istrouma Baptist Church, Baton Rouge; Michael Wood, pastor, FBC West Monroe; Jerry Pipes, president of Jerry Pipes Productions; former Southern Baptist Convention President Fred Luter, pastor, Franklin Avenue Baptist Church, New Orleans; and, former Louisiana Baptist Convention President Steve Horn, pastor, FBC Lafayette.
D.A. Horton, pastor of the Reach Fellowship church plant in North Long Beach, California, and Chief Evangelist for the Urban Youth Workers Institute led Louisiana College’s recent campus revival.
The second half of the schedule features a number of well-known Louisiana pastors but also a bevy of gifted men of faith including: Brent Crowe, vice president, Student Leadership University, Orlando; Richard Blackaby, president, Blackaby Ministries International; Dave Edwards, self-described as an “itinerant postmodern pastor”; and, Wayne Jenkins, former Director, Evangelism – Church Growth Team, Louisiana Baptist Convention.
