LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ) — Former Vice President Mike Pence spoke at Liberty University’s fall convocation on Wednesday morning.
According to the University’s Office of Spiritual Development, this was Pence’s third visit to Liberty University. He spoke at the Convocation in October 2016 when he was governor of Indiana and a Republican running mate. He returned in May 2019 to deliver the commencement address for Liberty University’s 46th launch.
“I’m excited to see this fall convocation schedule. Our student body, one of the largest on record, will be able to sample a wide range of Christian leaders who model what it is to be a Champion for Christ in their field,” Liberty Acting Chairman Jerry Prevo said in a press release. “My prayer is that our students will take Christ with them into their profession, wherever they are sent. Our Convo guests are just a few of the many examples of what it’s like to serve Christ in all avenues of life.
Other guest speakers for Liberty include Virginia Lieutenant Governor Winsome Sears, Christian media personality Priscilla Shirer, former NFL running back Shaun Alexander and Paralympic champion swimmer Jessica Long, among others.
“Our mission is to Forming Champions for Christ to LU. Therefore, we want every Convocation speaker to be someone who can help fulfill that mission,” campus pastor Jonathan Falwell said in a press release. “Our guests this fall will bring great insight, wisdom, biblical truth and encouragement to our students on their spiritual journey. We are thrilled to see what God is doing through the men and women who will share from the stage of Summons.”
