DBU REPORT 6 to participate in the cherished Candlelighting service. Each student sat alongside their peers, candles in hand, worshiping together and praying for one another as the DBU Family. “The Candlelighting Ceremony was really cool to be a part of,” shares DBU freshman Zachary Brenek. “I loved seeing the community-oriented aspect of DBU mesh with worshiping the Lord together.” PRAYER By emphasizing the power of prayer from the beginning of each student’s career on University Hill, DBU strives to encourage Patriots to be individuals of fervent prayer both on and off campus. During the Faculty Meet and Greet, over 75 faculty members dispersed among the new students, sat with them to eat breakfast and pray individually for their semesters. At the end of the week, new Patriots gathered in Pilgrim Chapel SERVICE “The service day and foot-washing are sweet opportunities for students to see a glimpse of the heart of Jesus and the heart of DBU’s mission to develop servant leaders,” said Simone Robinson, a SWAT student leader. Friday morning, students scattered throughout DFW to serve at 19 community service partners, including Beautiful Feet homeless ministry, Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid, Dallas Life center for the homeless, Mission Arlington, and more.
