On May 1, 2023, Dr. Richard Blackaby of Blackaby Ministries International visited campus for our weekly chapel service. He spoke to our students about Christian leadership, encouraging them: “Don't settle for less than what God has for you.”
Then on Tuesday, May 2, we held our first annual Pastor Breakfast, welcoming area ministry leaders to enjoy breakfast and hear from Dr. Blackaby on "The Ways of God."
We were thankful for the opportunity to introduce many pastors and ministry leaders to Evergreen and all we have to offer Christian families in our community.
