Southern Kentucky Partnership Dinner

On Tuesday evening, friends of Heritage Christian University gathered in Franklin, KY for the annual Southern Kentucky Partnership Dinner. It was a happy evening as HCU board member, Dale Jenkins, shared some of the lighter moments from his years in ministry and then spoke about the importance of preaching. President Dennis Jones updated guests on the progress of the university with special emphasis on the fact that HCU has now been training preachers, teachers, and missionaries for 40 years. He then introduced the guests to HCU students Josh Looney, Will Martin, Heather Murphy, and Derrick Sumerel. What a blessing it was as friends of the university gave generously toward the ongoing training of effective communicators of the gospel at Heritage Christian University.

HCU is grateful to Johnny Tucker and the Bethany congregation for both coordinating the event and preparing the delicious meal. Special thanks are also extended to the Franklin congregation for opening its facility to host the event and to the Bethany youth group for sharing some heartfelt singing.

A partnership dinner was also held at Tusculum in Nashville, TN on April 19. Upcoming partnership dinners are scheduled at the Mt. Juliet congregation in Mt. Juliet, TN on May 3, and at Hartsville Pike in Gallatin, TN on May 5.
