Faith and Mission Luncheon Returns
A luncheon series for Lent 2017, noon, Kreider Room, Marbeck Center
Shaped by the historic peace church tradition and nourished by a desire for excellence in all phases of its programs, Bluffton University seeks to prepare students of all backgrounds for life as well as vocation, for responsible citizenship, for service to all peoples and, ultimately, for the purposes of God’s universal kingdom.
During this luncheon series Bluffton faculty and staff share the faith traditions,
practices, experiences, and convictions they rely on to carry out Bluffton’s mission
and explore how Bluffton’s mission inspires and challenges faith. Bring your lunch
to Kreider Room on Wednesdays during Advent and Lent to reflect with colleagues and
friends on the relationship between faith and mission at Bluffton.

We are also preparing for the spring Mock Interview and Networking Night on March 21. We are eager to pair all of our students with great interviewers in a relevant field or area of study. To do this, we are always expanding our list of professionals. Some of you may be hearing from us directly, but we would love to hear from you now if you know of area colleagues who would be great mock interviewers for our students. Please email Shari or Britnie if you have a recommendation.
