William Penn University to host Jim Le Shana as part of the Beane Lecture Series
William Penn University is honored to host Dr. Jim Le Shana as this year’s guest speaker for the 4th Annual Ercil and Maxine Beane Lecture on Tuesday, April 2, 2013. Dr. La Shana’s presentation titled “The Forgotten Quaker Distinctive” will be held at 11:15 am in the Chief Mahaska Room, located in the Dana Atkins Memorial Union on the university campus. La Shana will also give a presentation titled “Building Bridges” at 7:00 pm Tuesday evening in the atrium of the Musco Technology Center. Both events are free to attend and open to the public.
Le Shana is currently the Vice President of Academic Services and Director of the MA in Transformational Leadership at Barclay College in Haviland, Kansas. He has served as a pastor for 30 years. By God’s grace, Le Shana has helped to launch a variety of new churches; developed, led, and multiplied many effective outreach ministries and groups; and trained many pastors and church leaders in the United States and various mission fields.
Ercil and Maxine Beane established an endowment in 2008 to develop programs that engage students, faculty, and the community in discussions about Quaker principles and philosophies. Through that endowment a guest speaker is brought to William Penn University each year to share Quaker teachings and values with members of the school and surrounding community.
Please plan to join us as we welcome Dr. Jim Le Shana on Tuesday, April 2, 2013. For questions, contact Assistant Professor of Religion, Mike Moyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
