Geneva College to host educational leader Donovan Graham

Currently, Dr. Graham ministers to teachers in other countries through World Harvest Mission.

“We are hoping students will realize that what they are going to be doing is kingdom building, as they will be salt and light to their students,” said Yvonne Trotter, education professor at Geneva. “The event is also meant to encourage and inspire those currently in the field to do all for His glory.”

The first hour of this event will include a keynote address by Graham. The second hour will have two breakout options: Graham on “How Do I Serve God in the Public School?” and Finn Laursen, Executive Director of Christian Educations Association International, on “Making a Case for Christian School.” 

Dr. Graham will also be speaking at a faculty luncheon at Geneva on October 16 and conducting an in-service with teachers from Beaver County Christian School and the American Spirit Christian Academy on October 18.

Geneva College invites students to accept the challenge of an academically excellent, Christ-centered education. Offering nearly 40 undergraduate majors, Adult Degree Programs with fully online and campus-based options, and seven graduate degrees, Geneva has programs that place students at the forefront of higher learning. Adhering to the inerrancy of Scripture, a Geneva education is grounded in God’s word as well as in a core curriculum designed to prepare students vocationally to think, write and communicate well in today’s world.
