Kuyper Holds Spring Celebration Gala
May 3, 2012
Kuyper College’s Spring Celebration Gala on April 16 highlighted and affirmed the college’s mission. Over 500 friends of the College gathered at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. The Gala’s theme was Grace Unleashed—John 17:18: “As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.”
During the evening, President Nick Kroeze presented the H. J. Kuiper Service award to Carlos Hidalgo.
The award is reflective of the College’s mission statement, and a life dedicated to the service of our Lord Jesus Christ and others.
Dr. Timothy Brown, President and Henry Bast Professor of Preaching at Western Theological Seminary, spoke on the Gala’s theme—urging the gathered to go throughout the world with both the message and deeds of the gospel.
The evening ended with special music was provided by the Kuyper College ensemble.
The proceeds of the Gala will benefit the College’s Annual Fund, part of which is used to support students by keeping tuition at an affordable rate.
