DWU welcomes Bob Goff for Mitchell Area Youth Night
Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Bob Goff is a New York Times best-selling author, human rights activist and inspirational speaker – and he will be on the Dakota Wesleyan University campus this spring.
Goff, the author of “Love Does,” will be the featured speaker for the Mitchell Area Youth Night, as well as the Conference for Leadership, Innovation and Social Change.
The Mitchell Area Youth night will be held at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 9, in the Sherman Center. The conference will begin at 8:30 a.m., Thursday, in the Sherman Center. Both events are free and open to the public; however, the youth night is targeted toward youth and student ministries grades sixth through 12th-grade and their leaders from the surrounding areas, as well as college students.
Campus pastor Brandon Vetter anticipates Goff’s presentation will not disappoint audiences.
“He is a man passionate about life and God. He is an infectious presenter who will challenge everyone present to live full lives in God no matter where they are,” said Vetter, who has heard Goff speak before.
“Youth night is an awesome time for folks to get together across various denominational lines and simply worship in song and hear a great presenter or band,” Vetter said. DWU is in a unique place to offer neutral ground as a university to bring churches together that might not have any other reason to do so otherwise. DWU has played an awesome role over the last few years bringing quality Christian speakers challenging everyone to a deeper faith.”
Goff also founded Restore International, a nonprofit human rights organization in Uganda and India which works to pursue justice for the needy, including a case in Uganda where Restore International brought to trial more than 200 cases, some involving children who were jailed without trial, according to his website.
