UC represented at Catalyst One Day in Lexington

 


Williamsburg, Ky. - On Thursday, March 21, twenty-three students from University of the Cumberlands (UC) joined Baptist Campus Minister (BCM) Dean Whitaker, Missions and Ministry professors Dr. Keith Goforth and Dr. Bob Dunston, two campus ministry interns, and two local ministers to attend the Catalyst One Day Conference in Lexington, Kentucky. The group left early in the morning to attend the all-day event and returned in the evening.

Andy Stanley, Pastor of North Point Community Church, and Craig Groeschel, Pastor of LifeChurch.tv, each presented two sessions on leadership. Worship music was led by the North Point Community Church Praise Band. University of the Cumberlands paid the registration fee for each of the participants and provided transportation.

“Catalyst One Day provided an excellent opportunity for our students to worship and prepare to be more effective servants and leaders in God’s work,” said Dr. Bob Dunston. “The opportunity to hear from two creative, committed Christian leaders was outstanding. We all returned inspired and energized!”

In October UC will again take students to the annual Catalyst Conference in Georgia. This conference is a two-day event featuring presentations from nationally and internationally known Christian leaders as well worship led by excellent musicians and poets. Attending Catalyst helps UC professors and students to be better equipped to minister in Christ’s name.

Located in Williamsburg, Ky., University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; seven graduate degrees, including a doctorate and six master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
