Faith & Worship

Our Mission: Louisiana Christian University is a Christ-centered community committed to academic excellence where students are equipped for lives of learning, leading, and serving.

Welcome to Louisiana Christian University: Your College. Your Future.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” - Jeremiah 29:11

Louisiana Christian University is a private, Baptist coeducational college of liberal arts and sciences with selected professional programs. The campus is located in Pineville, Louisiana, and the college is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, bachelors, and masters degrees. Questions about the accreditation of Louisiana Christian University may be directed in writing to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097, by calling (404) 679-4500, or by using information available on SACSCOC’s website (www.sacscoc.org). Please visit our accreditations page for more information on separate accreditation for specific programs.

The college is located on an 81-acre campus with a total of 25 academic and residential buildings. Most of the students at Louisiana Christian University come from Central Louisiana, but many states and several foreign countries are represented in the current student body. The faculty and staff of Louisiana Christian University genuinely care for the students. Their primary concern is to enhance student learning and to encourage the student’s Christian growth. Approximately two-thirds of the faculty hold terminal degrees in their academic discipline.

The college was chartered in 1906 as a non-profit corporation with the object “to own, operate and conduct a Baptist college... to foster Christian education.” Louisiana Christian University is affiliated with the Louisiana Baptist Convention.

Shannon Kendrick is the Regional Alliance Director for ADF Church & Ministry Alliance. ADF Ministry Alliance is a legal membership program that acts as a hub for Christian Universities to gain access to experienced First Amendment lawyers who are available to answer religious liberty questions, conduct document reviews and provide advice, and even represent Universities in court if necessary and appropriate – it’s virtually all-inclusive for religious freedom issues. ADF advocates for the right to freely live out one's faith.

Gregory S. Baylor serves as senior counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom, where he is the director of the Center for Religious Schools and Senior Counsel for Government Affairs.
Since joining ADF in 2009, Baylor has focused on defending and advancing the religious freedom of faith-based educational institutions through advice, education, legislative and public advocacy, and representation in disputes. He has testified about religious liberty issues three times before congressional committees. Greg regularly comments on religious liberty and higher education issues in television, radio, and print media, including The New York Times, Christianity Today, National Public Radio, and network and cable news programs. Additionally, he serves on the board of directors for the Museum of the Bible and the International Alliance for Christian Education. Greg earned his Juris Doctor in 1990 from Duke University School of Law, where he graduated Order of the Coif, with high honors, and served on the editorial board of the Duke Law Journal. He received his bachelor’s degree in Honors English in 1987 from Dartmouth College. Following graduation from law school, he served as law clerk to the Hon. Jerry E. Smith on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He practiced labor and employment law at two large international law firms for three years before joining the staff of Christian Legal Society’s Center for Law and Religious Freedom, where he served for 15 years prior to joining ADF. He lives in Northern Virginia with his wife (a medical doctor) and two daughters.

Spring 2022 Chapel is held on Tuesdays at 11 a.m. in Guinn Auditorium.

As we deal with the effects of COVID-19 for yet another academic year, we will allow students the option to participate in ministry and chapel gatherings in-person or online. Please note the online option will require a 1,000-word essay per event and will be due within 48 hours after the conclusion of the event, program, etc. All of the semester's ministry events will be embedded into Canvas and essays will need to be uploaded there accordingly.

Additional details for students will be shared per event over the course of the next semester as an event draws near. Stand by for further details. For questions, please contact joshua.dara@lacollege.edu or justin.langford@lacollege.edu.
