Welcome Message

We gather this evening on the eve of a new academic year at Olivet Nazarene University... our Centennial Year! During the next few months, we will turn our gaze from looking back at our wonderful history and heritage to looking forward with faith and optimism. Our second century will soon begin.

The theme of our dinner is The Future is Now. May the Lord help each of us make the most of this important moment in the life of the University. Our work this year will provide a capstone for the past and a cornerstone for the future.

As part of the activities this evening, we will welcome new colleagues and offer our congratulations and best wishes to others who have reached milestones of service to Olivet. Please take time to note some of the many accomplishments listed in the dinner program.

We hope you have a wonderful evening!
