Hulst to speak at Friends of Dordt Spring Banquet

Dr. John B. Hulst, president emeritus of Dordt College, will be the speaker at this year’s 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 all levels.

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.
