Be the first to Comment

At the beginning of every school year, we have our President’s Convocation; a time to reflect on the past year, as well as the year we are embarking on.

We got in to Oslo late at night, so we didn’t...

The Business Chapel that changed it all

Be the first to Comment

Each Thursday morning, Lipscomb University offers several breakout chapel opportunities for students to listen to speakers, worship and be filled with truth. One of these chapel opportunities is the Business Chapel that happens each week in Stowe Hall, Room 108 of the Swang Business Center. Week-after-week, speakers who represent a true servant-leadership spirit in the business world, a world that is typically controlled by money and politics, speak to Lipscomb students about how their faith...
