Welcome Message

Good evening, everyone! The rhythms and cycles of the University calendar bring us renewal and new opportunities. We now look forward with a strong sense of assurance that “He who began a good work in us” will continue to guide and direct our work during the coming 2011–2012 year.

Let us remember and rejoice that our work is God’s work. We touch eternity every day as we work together to provide an “Education with a Christian Purpose” to a new generation.

Please take a moment during the dinner to review the program, which chronicles many of the fine accomplishments of your colleagues and friends. Others will be recognized for reaching significant milestones of service to Olivet. We also welcome a fine group of new members to the faculty and staff.

We hope you have a wonderful evening, followed by a rich and rewarding new academic year. God bless you!

From Jill and John Bowling
