Fall Convocation lineup in line with Liberty’s mission

September 20, 2022

The fall schedule officially kicked off on Aug. 24 with a special worship Convocation featuring guest singer-songwriter Micah Tyler. Highlighting the semester is the 48th Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, who was scheduled to speak on Sept. 14 (the event occurred at press time), his third visit to Liberty. (He spoke at Convocation in October 2016 as then-Indiana governor and Republican vice presidential candidate, and he returned in May 2019 to deliver the keynote address at Liberty’s 46th Commencement.)

“Our mission is to Train Champions for Christ at LU. Therefore, we want every Convocation speaker to be someone who can help fulfill this mission,” said Campus Pastor Jonathan Falwell. “Our guests this fall will bring great insight, wisdom, biblical truth, and encouragement to our students in their spiritual journey. We are excited to see what God does through the men and women who will share from the Convocation stage.”

Convocation is the largest weekly gathering of Christian students in the world. The service is held every Wednesday and Friday at 10:30 a.m. EST in the Vines Center and is open to the entire student body. Most of the events are streamed live on Liberty’s main Facebook page and the Office of Spiritual Development Facebook page.
