Life of Service

A Life of Service

November 11th | 11:30 A.M. - 1:00 P.M.
Location: DBU Main Campus or Virtual

A life of service is the highest level of achievement for which one can strive. Led by decorated heroes who have served well both in military capacity and thereafter, this Free Lunch is for those in business, ministry, and of course for those who have served our country through the United States military. Our country is in need of unity. We believe that those who are dedicated to a life of service are part of the solution. A life of service doesn’t start or end with military involvement. Instead, we are each called to think of others before ourselves and contribute to a cause greater than ourselves. Join us as we honor our veterans and hear an inspiring message from Dr. Levi Price, Lieutenant Trevor Carpenter and Pastor Devinion Valentine.
