Liberty University’s Office of Spiritual Development has released its Spring 2023 Convocation schedule, beginning with new Flames Football Head Coach Jamey Chadwell on Jan. 18.
The special guests this spring are part of a diverse lineup of speakers that includes Jonathan Roumie, who portrays Jesus in the popular crowd-funded series “The Chosen” (Feb. 3); Willie and Korie Robertson from the hit reality TV show “Duck Dynasty” (Feb. 24); pastors David Jeremiah (Jan. 25) and Alistair Begg (March 8); Emmy Award winning NFL commentator James Brown (Feb. 17); and Attorney General of Virginia Jason Miyares (March 1).
“Once again, our Convocation team has put together a great slate of speakers for the spring semester,” Campus Pastor Jonathan Falwell said. “I know the students, faculty, staff, and many others will be blessed by this great lineup. As always, our mission is to use the Convocation stage to proclaim the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of His Word.”
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.
