Inspiring Virtuous Leadership in 2015: Center Sponsors Twelfth Institute

Fifteen talented students, representing seven institutions, gathered at Olivet Nazarene University for two weeks in May for the Center’s twelfth Law, Justice, and Culture Institute.  The institutions represented included three new schools – Eastern Nazarene College, South Dakota State University, and the United States Military Academy – as well as Judson University, Olivet Nazarene University, Trinity Christian College, and Wheaton College.  In order to make a way for the nation’s best and brightest students, the Center stepped out in faith, extending over $17,000 in scholarship money, the most in the Institute’s history, thanks to the generosity of the Center’s faithful supporters.

The 2015 Institute graduates earned three academic credits at their home institutions.  They were challenged by the Center’s Executive Director and Founder, Professor Charlie Emmerich, and guest lecturers to integrate the biblical understanding of justice into their career callings.  In addition to Professor Emmerich, the students also heard from Dr. Susan Emmerich on creation care and stewardship; Marty Ozinga III of the successful Ozinga Brothers, Inc., on running a company according to biblical principles; law professor Morse Tan on defending the sanctity of human life; Center Director Zach Bohannon on affirming a Judeo-Christian worldview in law; Richard and Dorothy Jones on biblical principles of personal and governmental fiscal responsibility; and Dr. Fred Beuttler, former Historian for the U.S. House, on exercising Christian faith on Capitol Hill.

2015 Law, Justice, and Culture Institute students were joined by a few Olivet business students to hear Marty Ozinga, III, of Ozinga Brothers, speak to the class on Christian worldview in business and the importance of free market principles.
