Each year, during Spiritual Emphasis Week, faculty, staff and students join together to focus their attention on a specific theme and Scripture verse. Intentional, inspirational activities across all divisions create opportunities for our Dunham community to experience the Lord anew. The 2019 theme, "LIVE OUT LOUD” comes from Galatians 2:20 : “...the life I now live, I live by faith..."
NOTE FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL STEVE EAGLETON:
Spiritual Emphasis Week is an amazing opportunity to watch God do a mighty work that will impact the entire campus for His glory. We anticipate great things as we approach the week and ask that you join us in prayer for God to move extensively throughout our Dunham community. Our prayer is that you will embrace the opportunities to experience the Lord through this intentional, inspirational week. We look forward to what God is going to do to help our Dunham community to "Live Out Loud" for His glory.
