Hulst to speak at Friends of Dordt Spring Banquet
Dr. John B. Hulst, president emeritus of Dordt College, will be the speaker
at this years spring Friends of Dordt Banquet. The banquet will be held
on Friday, April 25, in the Dordt College Recreation Center.
Hulst is titling his presentation Dordt Stories.
When friends get together they tell stories, he says. He will share some
of the high points in his years of involvement in Christian education to
demonstrate the importance and blessings of Christian education at Dordt College and at
Hulst, who served Dordt College for twenty-eight years in both student services and
the presidency, remains passionately committed to Christian education. Although he has stopped preaching
regularly in area churches, he continues to accept invitations to speak on the
topic of Christian education. Many of his recent presentations have been to Christian
school foundations. He also speaks and works on behalf of the Institute for
Christian Studies and serves as senior advisor for the International Association for the
Promotion of Christian Higher Education.
Christian schools are the best place to train people to see, understand, and
apply what they hear on Sunday about the sovereignty of God over all
of life, Hulst says.
Join Hulst and other Dordt College friends on April 25 at what is
a popular annual opportunity for friends of the college to show their commitment
to the college, to share their enthusiasm with other supporters, and to be
reminded of the value and importance of Christian higher education.
