Prayer and Worship Event 

The student body is invited to the Activity Center at 9 p.m. on Saturday, April 26, for prayer and singing focused on the authority of God. Student body chaplain Caleb Schaaf will encourage students to regain a singular focus on Christ and will lead in prayer for the presidential search committee. Schaaf encourages students to prepare beforehand by reading Daniel 4 and meditating on Christ’s sacrifice and passion for ungrateful sinners. In the case of inclement weather, the event will move to Stratton Hall.

Soulwinning Conference 

Pastor Matt Recker of Heritage Baptist Church in New York City will speak during BJU’s annual Soulwinning Conference next week. Recker said he hopes to renew a focus on proclaiming the Gospel as students prepare to head home for the summer. “My goal is to encourage, inform and excite us all to go home in the coming months and be soul conscious and to make it a priority to preach Christ,” Recker said. The conference will run from Monday through Thursday during the chapel hour.

Scholastic Bowl

The Nu Delta Chi Vikings will face the Sigma Kappa Rho Firebirds in the Scholastic Bowl Championship on Thursday, May 1, at 7 p.m. in Lecture B. The defending champion Vikings, who advanced past the Tau Delta Chi Kangaroos to reach the final, held tryouts in December to determine the best team members for this spring’s competition. “We invented our own stats system to use during the games so we could evaluate the team’s performance and make adjustments,” said team captain Forrest Brazeal. The Firebirds defeated the Bryan Bears on April 15 to reach the final round.
