Lee University is in the midst of their fall convocation, a series of six chapel services in four days for a time of spiritual reflection and renewal. A tradition for the life of the Church of God school, convocation began on Sunday evening, October 3 with a message from Lee University president Dr. Paul Conn.
Dr. Mark Walker, lead pastor of Mt. Paran North Church of God in Atlanta, spoke on Monday evening. Walker holds a doctoral degree from Regent University and has served at Mt. Paran since 1992. He also serves as a member of the Church of God International Executive Council and is a member of the Lee University Board of Directors.
Tonight’s service (October 5) will feature Chris Goins, lead pastor of “a2 church” in Birmingham, Ala. Tom Madden will wrap up the services, bringing the message on Wednesday night. He is the International Director for Youth and Discipleship for the Church of God. Madden is an alumnus of Lee and a veteran youth minister. He is also one of the founders of the popular “Winterfest” annual youth festival held across the U.S. and around the world.
Students at Lee attend regularly-scheduled chapel services on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. During convocation week, all-music morning chapels will be led by campus ensembles. The Lee Singers led worship on Tuesday morning, with the Evangelistic Singers scheduled for Thursday.
The convocation is directed by campus pastor Dr. Jimmy Harper and Lee vice president Dr. Walt Mauldin.
