Hear from some Lincoln Leaders on how their LCU education shaped them:
“I had no initial plans of being in ministry, but God had other plans for my life! While I was studying Bible and Business at LCU, He was forming in me a heart for His Kingdom in every opportunity. In classes, I was equipped with the right tools for understanding the Bible; on camp teams, I grew a heart for middle and high school students searching for their identity; on mission trips, my eyes were opened to the Father’s global heart. More than anything, the community of encouraging friends and faculty at LCU showed me how we become more like Jesus when we move beyond comfort and into a world desperate for hope.”
– Mandy Liptak, LCC ‘04, NextGen Girls Ministry Associate Ministry Assistant, Southeast Christian Church (Jeffersonville, Ind.)
“I am deeply indebted to LCU. The school elevated my leadership, deepened my walk with Jesus, broadened my understanding of preaching and the Word, and shaped my heart for lost and hurting people.”
– David Clark, LCC ‘74, Senior Pastor, Central Christian Church (Beloit, Wis.)
“LCU helped to shape the person I am today, preparing me to lead in business, church, and my family with integrity [that is] rooted in scripture. The professors and coaches at LCU exemplified Christ and encouraged me to do the same.”
– Nate Edson, LCC ‘97, Sales Manager, Country Bob’s (Centralia, Ill.)
“One of my favorite verses about leadership is from Psalm 78:72, ‘And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.’ As an administrator in a school, one of the standards I am evaluated on is: ‘acting with integrity, fairness, and in an ethical manner.’ Lincoln Christian University provided the guidance, education, and experiences so I could be a skilled leader who serves with integrity.”
– Jennifer Reedy Singleton, LCC ‘01, Assistant Principal, Buder Elementary School (St. Ann, Mo.)
