BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – The Dimensions program at Gardner-Webb University is pleased to announce Matt Orth, an author and teaching elder at Broad River Community Church (BRCC), as a distinguished speaker. Orth, who is also involved in the speaking ministry of Crossroads Worldwide, will speak on Tuesday, April 8 at 9:25 a.m. in the Tucker Student Center.

This Dimensions program will place a particular emphasis on Earth Week 2014 with Orth relaying the importance of Christian stewardship. As a teaching elder at BRCC, Orth leads a faith community where the focus is developing qualities found in the early church as discussed in the New Testament book of Acts.

“Matt Orth has many titles—husband, father, minister, speaker, author.  But I am grateful to know him as friend.  Students always look forward to hearing him in Dimensions and many sit under his teaching each Sunday at Broad River Community Church,”said Dr. Tracy Jessup, vice president for Christian Life and Service and senior minister to the University.  “I specifically asked him to speak during our Earth Week Awareness, because I appreciate his authenticity in taking practical steps to be a good steward of God’s creation.”
