August 26, 2013

Dordt College President Dr. Erik Hoekstra will lead the college in welcoming the new academic year during Convocation on Friday, August 30, at 11 a.m. in the B.J. Haan Auditorium.

Hoekstra will speak on the topic “Making Sense of It All,” outlining the importance of having biblical truth and the centrality of Jesus Christ at the heart of the educational process in every field of study.

“I will examine some troubling cultural shifts that are taking the place of faith and the institutional church in North America and how Christian education can serve to stand in the gap and reverse those trends,” said Hoekstra.

You can watch Convocation live online.

Convocation is a formal gathering of the academic community to reflect on the college’s vision and its connection to a variety of disciplines and callings.
