PINEVILLE, La. (LBM) – Dry Creek native and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary Professor R. Keith Loftin will headline Louisiana College’s second “Christ Church Culture” lecture of the year on April 13.
Loftin, the author of several books including “Stand Firm: Apologetics and the Brilliance of the Gospel,” will share with students, faculty and members of the community a presentation on “calling and career.”
“As human beings, we are created in God’s image,” Loftin said. “We are created with purpose. We are created to work. Indeed, we are created to flourish. These truths harmonize in the Christian notion of vocation, and that notion can revolutionize how we think about education.”
The event comes months before LC launches its new Quality Enhancement Plan, which will focus on service-learning. Brewer said he wants to make sure students understand the importance of their academic education is preparation for real-world service.
“No matter what call God has placed on your life, our role is to serve others and represent His kingdom,” Brewer said. “Our QEP, which launches in the fall, is LC Serves. Live Connected. This seminar will focus on better understanding on how college education and experiences are preparation for lives of service. We are so thankful that Keith Loftin will share his thoughts on this with our students and our community.”
Loftin holds a master’s degree in humanities from the University of Dallas, a master’s degree in philosophy from Louisiana State University, and a master’s degree in theology from SWBTS. His Ph.D. in theology is from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.
The C3 event will take place in Guinn Auditorium at 6 p.m. Social distancing will be practiced, and attendees should wear a mask to attend in person.
