This time of spiritual reflection and renewal will begin Sunday, with worship and a message from Lee’s president, Dr. Paul Conn.
Mark Williams, featured speaker on Monday evening, is a Lee alum (1986) who currently serves as an assistant general overseer of the Church of God, where he guides and manages the activities of over 7 million church members in 145 nations around the world.
Williams was awarded an honorary doctor of divinity degree from Lee in 2010. Williams, who is the current official liaison between Lee and the sponsoring denomination, has long been a consistent advocate for higher education in the church.
On Tuesday evening, Lee welcomes Josh Rice, pastor of Community and Leadership Development at Mount Paran North Church of God in Marietta, Ga.
Rice has served as a youth pastor, senior pastor, and church administrator. After graduating from Lee in 1999, he went on to receive a master of divinity degree from Columbia Theological Seminary and a doctorate in New Testament Studies from the Lutheran School of Theology.
Chris Goins, lead pastor of a church in Birmingham, Ala., will speak on Wednesday night.
Over the past several years, Goins has been invited to speak frequently in chapels and convocations. Goins’ illustrated sermons and contemporary style are popular with Lee students. Before launching “a2 church” in 2008 with his wife, Janet, Goins pastored at Maranatha Church in Florida and Metro Church in Birmingham.
Tuesday morning’s all music chapel will feature Ladies of Lee leading worship in the Conn Center while the Symphonic Band provides worship in the Dixon Center.
On Thursday, Lee Singers will conclude by leading worship in the Conn Center, while the Voices of Lee perform in the Dixon Center.
Weeknight services start at 7:30 with morning services at 10:40 a.m. Convocation will be directed by campus pastor Jimmy Harper.
Lee encourages all students and guests to come out and participate in the services.
