Dr. David Gill Lectures on Christian Business Ethics

March 19, 2009

Dr. David W. Gill, an ethics educator, writer and consultant, delivered a special lecture highlighting "Christian Business Ethics" March 10.  The lecture was part of the University's ministry practice course, which is designed to prepare students for professional ministry. 

Dr. Gill’s lecture drew attention to the biblical foundation in business ethics, and emphasized the importance of striving for excellence within that ethic. He also explained the powerful role of proper ethics in the world of business. 

"Some people refuse to attend the Bible study, but they won't refuse your Christian ethics in business." said Dr. Gill.

Many students drew inspiration from his lecture, particularly his remarks about the necessity of exercising spiritual discipline in order to live out the Christian faith each day.
