Grace College is pleased to welcome Dr. Barry Corey, president of Biola University, to campus on Wednesday, September 13. Corey will speak in chapel, beginning at 10:30 a.m., in the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center, 601 Wooster Rd., Winona Lake. The public is welcome to attend this free event.
Corey is the author of “Love Kindness,” the summer read for Grace College’s 2017 freshman class. Prior to arriving on campus each fall, freshmen collectively read an assigned book. The book assignment is part of Freshman Foundations, a course designed to help students discover their God-given strengths and navigate through college-related issues. “Love Kindness” addresses the power of kindness and the revolutionary way Christians are called to live.
“Love Kindness” was also read by the Grace College faculty during the summer of 2016. “Many of us have been blessed by Dr. Corey’s book,” said Grace College Provost Dr. John Lillis. “We hope the students, staff, and community take advantage of this unique opportunity to hear directly from Dr. Corey about the importance of Christ-like kindness.”
Under Corey’s leadership, Biola University has seen the highest enrollment in school history. Corey has initiated construction of new facilities and the largest comprehensive fundraising campaign at Biola to date. Corey is also vice chair of the board of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), a member of the Convoy of Hope board of directors and a board member for the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C.
