More than two dozen students from organizations across campus gathered for a two-day leadership seminar at Southwestern Christian University.

Resident hall assistants, resident chaplains, student government officers, varsity team captains and intramural leaders went through a number of activities and exercises designed to give them the necessary tools to succeed with their on-campus jobs for 2014-2015.

“This is something that we started last year and were very pleased with the results,” Brad Davis, SCU Vice-President for Student Life, said. “We were able to go over the necessary rules and procedures that will allow them to be effective leaders and assist them in their knowledge about rule enforcement.

The two-day workshop included a number of special guest speakers including, head baseball coach Kevin Thornton, University President Dr. Reggies Wenyika, Provost Dr. Connie Sjoberg and Professor Shelly Groves.

Topics for the workshop included development and team leading, personality profiles, leadership principles, multi-media, planning and promotion. All of the participating students will assist with enrollment registration which begins next week on campus.

Located in Bethany, Okla. Southwestern Christian University was founded in 1946 by the International Pentecostal Holiness Church. It is a Christian liberal arts university anchored in the classical Pentecostal faith traditions and serves over 800 students from more than twenty different countries.
