Martin Luther King Celebration 2018

A campus-wide event to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Trinity International University warmly invites our entire campus, local community, and EFCA churches to our university-wide celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 15, 2018 from 11:30 a.m.—4 p.m. in the Waybright Center of Trinity’s Deerfield Campus (2065 Half Day Rd, Bannockburn, IL 60015).

The entire program is free and open to the public. Free childcare is also available. For TIU students, chapel credit(s) will also be available.

Schedule of Events
Aside from workshops, all events will take place in Melton Hall. The day-long program will include:

  • Lunch (sponsored by the Evangelical Free Church of America) – 11:30 a.m.
  • Opening Ceremony – featuring a public reading of a Dr. King sermon by members of the Trinity community, worship, prayer, and a performance by the Trinity Gospel Choir – 12 p.m.
  • Workshops on various topics – 2 p.m.
  • Closing Ceremony – including worship, prayer, and communion – 3 p.m.

Workshop Topics
Why Should I Care About MLK Day?
Wall of Stereotypes
Connecting with a Diverse Student Body (for faculty and staff)
Salve for the Weary Soul: I’m in the Fight and I’m Tired

As a university community, our hope and prayer is that this day will leave us freshly inspired and challenged to pursue Gospel-centered reconciliation, justice and compassion in the spirit of Dr. King on our campus, in our churches, and in our nation and world.
