Kirk Franklin-LU

Though the race of life is difficult, nine-time Grammy Award winner Kirk Franklin encouraged Liberty University students at Friday’s Convocation to shed the weights of pride and bitterness and continue forward for the glory of God.

“I believe that there are kings and queens up in here that realize that God has called you for a greater race and that the goal cannot be for you but for the Body (of Christ),” he said.

Franklin, a Gospel music artist, was invited as the main Convocation speaker Friday, which was his first visit to Liberty’s campus.

Convocation crowd was one of the largest to date, as close to 2,000 visitors for College For A Weekend (CFAW) joined more than 10,000 students in the Vines Center.
