This event will be held at 9:25 a.m. in Stewart Hall of Tucker Student Center on GWU’s main campus and is free and open to the public.

Ronnie Doss has organized leadership trainings internationally over the past several years. More recently, he has been working to train members of the Leading and Influencing Others at NASA (LION) development program. His inspiring message is driven by his deep understanding of the way people behave, and he shares methods to help each person to become empowered and confident.

“Although Ronnie and I share the same hometown of Mount Airy, N.C., I did not know of his speaking ministry until Alex Bennett, Student Government Association President, met with me to discuss speaker recommendations for the Gardner-Webb University Dimensions program. In Alex’s words, ‘Ronnie is my all-time favorite speaker,’” said Dr. Tracy Jessup, vice president of Christian Life and Services and Senior Minister to the University. “Listening to the ideas and suggestions of students is an important part of being a student-centered university. I’m thankful that our students have the opportunity to hear from someone who has had such an influence on our SGA president.”
