Current and future Lincoln Leaders depend on generous and faithful gifts from individuals and families who believe in - and benefit from - the mission and ministry of Lincoln Christian University.

A Lincoln Leader is someone who has spent part or all of his or her higher education experience in one of Lincoln Christian University’s (LCU) three schools. Over the years, Lincoln Leaders have made a difference in all 50 states and more than 160 countries around the world.

Today, Lincoln Leaders are making a difference in churches, global missions, counseling centers, businesses, finance, medicine, law, government, and education. Your Lincoln Leadership Gift makes it possible for future Lincoln Leaders (like the ones listed below) to continue to make a difference.

Founder, Slingshot Group

"Lincoln Christian University believed in me. They gave me a chance when I was 18 years old, which put me on a trajectory that proved to be a career and ministry beyond anything I could imagine. My experience there inspired me to have a learning and curious spirit. It was my time at Lincoln Christian University that prepared me for my life’s “journey,” including meeting my beautiful wife, Connie. Those were the most formative years of my life – musical skills, love for God’s Word, and learning about the Church."

Police Sergeant, DPA
Downey, CA

"I received a great education at Lincoln Christian University, where I had the opportunity to observe and interact with people of very strong Christian character and faith. Professors, dorm parents, coaches and staff walked the walk and talked the talk. Those individuals became the driving force that challenged me to become a leader and share my faith openly and to understand that being able to share my faith would only make me a stronger leader and someone who could challenge the world. God is not done with me yet and thanks to Lincoln Christian University, I am properly educated and equipped to lead wherever He may send me."

Preaching Minister
First Christian Church, Newburgh, IN

"One of the joys of preaching is seeing hurting people encouraged and lost people saved. My journey began at Lincoln Christian College (1986-1990) and it was there I learned the value of preaching the truth in love. Although many years have rapidly passed by since the ‘Life of Christ’ class or ‘Homiletics,’ the principles learned are still the same. The education I received at Lincoln Christian has given me the opportunity to show people the nature of God and the love of Christ. We are in our 21st year at First Christian Church in Newburgh, Indiana, and I am thankful the Lord started our journey years ago in Lincoln, Illinois."

"As a student, I remember hearing a mission statement thrown around – something about ‘preparing Christian leaders to serve in the church and in the world.’ LCU took this mission seriously. I was academically trained and challenged in the classroom setting, but my preparations didn’t end there. Professors, administrators, and upperclassmen got to know me outside of the classroom and took a proactive and intentional interest in me and other students. Many leaders were willing to go above and beyond classroom teaching to answer my questions, provide me with opportunities for growth, and encourage me along the way. Now, more than a decade later, the servant-leadership that was modeled to me at LCU is still foundational to how I lead in my own ministry in New Zealand."
