Kevin DeYoung

Covenant College will celebrate its 56th commencement on Saturday, May 7, 2011, and pastor Kevin DeYoung will deliver this year's commencement address.


A prolific author and blogger, DeYoung has been senior pastor of University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan, since 2004. He is the author of five books, including Why We're Not Emergent and Just Do Something: How to Make a Decision Without Dreams, Visions, Fleeces, Open Doors, Random Bible Verses, Casting Lots, Liver Shivers, Writing in the Sky.


"Last year, we asked the 2011 class who they wanted as a graduation speaker," says Timothy Vanvliet '11, who served as junior class president. "We had a plethora of suggested authors, presidents, poets, and celebrities. But in general our class wanted someone who was impacting the world for Christ in a positive way and could teach us how to do the same thing. Kevin DeYoung has the wisdom and the message to tell us how to get out there and give an impact in today's culture."


Commencement begins at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 7, 2011. Click here for more information.
