Dear Ladies of The Guild,

As I begin my second term as president of The Guild, I am grateful for the milestone events which occurred on the HCU campus during 2022-2023. This year, Houston Baptist University became Houston Christian University and has a new logo which features the Belin tower. We also celebrated the opening of The Morris Family Center for Law & Liberty on the HCU campus, a stately building constructed in a style reminiscent of the historic Independence Hall in Philadelphia. The Guild holds the honor having had the first event help in The Morris Family Center for Law & Liberty by hosting The Guild Institute of Christian Family Studies, with a program detaining and describing the vision, construction and the mission for this building on the HCU campus.

As The Guild moves into its 49th year, most importantly of all, is our goal to raise funds for the HCU Graduate Scholarship Program, which benefits our graduate educators and theology students. The Guild was privileged to award 26 Scholarships for this academic year — 3 Endowed and 23 Annual. We continue to serve as a light and a support to Dr. and Mrs. Sloan and to the Faculty and Staff of this prestigious Christian University.

A sincere thanks to all The Guild Ladies who served on my Executive Board and to those who served as Co-Chairs of our committees, making it a very worthwhile, exciting and fun year. All of our events — The Guild institute in Christian Family Studies, the Fall Coffee, the Christmas Luncheon, the Christmas Open House for Faculty and Staff, the Special Event, the Silver Tea and the Installation Coffee where lovely and well attended. Please join us for all our fabulous events coming in 2023-2024.

“Be Joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in ALL Circumstances. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16

Joy is being happy with yourself so you can share joy with others.

With Joy,
Jeanne Walker
