Leadership Conference for New Initiative

by Amy Radwanski, Public Relations Writer

High school juniors and seniors are invited to join current Cedarville University students at the CU Lead Conference on January 24-45, beginning at 7 p.m. Friday evening.

Students will explore a biblical worldview of leadership and develop the knowledge and skills to implement positive change through effective stewardship, influence and service.

Along with conference sessions, attendees will participate in a student leadership panel and breakouts led by Cedarville University faculty and staff. Featured speakers are Lt. Gen. Loren Reno, dean of the school of business administration, and Rob Turner, Ph.D., director of the Master of Ministry program and pastor of Apex Community Church.

Three tracks will be offered to fit the needs and ages of the participants: CU LEADership 101 for high school junior and seniors, CU LEADership 201 for current Cedarville students wanting to get involved in leadership on campus and CU LEADership 301 for students who are currently serving leadership roles on campus.

“This event provides the opportunity for both high school students and college students to hear from people at Cedarville University who have great testimonies of leadership,” said Sarah Allen, associate director of guest services. “Preparing students to serve in areas of leadership and influence the culture is critical for their success as individuals, as well as for the perseverance of the Gospel.”

Registration is $50 and includes all meals, overnight housing, a T-shirt and all sessions and activities. To register and find out more information about the conference visit www.cedarville.edu/culead or email events @cedarville.edu.
