FALL 2022 7 “We always look forward to our service project day during SWAT,” explained Dr. Jay Harley, DBU Vice President for Student Affairs. “It allows our incoming students to experience first-hand our mission to produce servant leaders—individuals who care for others by serving their communities—and what better place to start that than here in the Metroplex?” After serving their off campus community, new students were shown what it means to live a life dedicated to service at the annual foot-washing ceremony. “Having upperclassmen lower themselves to a posture of humility and service before new students is such a beautiful reminder of what our Savior did when He laid down His life,” Simone shared. To glorify Christ and make known His great name is the heart behind each event held on DBU’s campus, and SWAT 2022 was no exception. Through every prayer prayed, every new friendship formed, and every life touched throughout this event. It is clear that SWAT is more than just a “welcome week.” “I’m encouraged to know that this is only the beginning of what has the potential to be a phenomenal year for DBU,” says DBU Director of Student Life Wayne Briggs. “From the incredible team of Captains and leaders to the dynamic group of incoming students, SWAT 2022 was one for the books. I can confidently say that this was the best SWAT yet!”
