"Summer conferencing is a wonderful opportunity to offer Christian hospitality and share our facilities and outstanding staff with so many guests," said Dr. Keith Newman, executive vice president and CEO of residential education. "We're blessed by the presence of those who come here, and we work hard to be a blessing in return."
