For this year’s President’s Dinner, Calvary is revisiting history at the historic Loretto campus in downtown Kansas City. Calvary operated at Loretto from 1967-1980, and Bill Stebbins, Calvary’s Chief Development Officer, said in the stressful environment 2020 has created, “what better thing to do than to go back and bask in our roots?” Stebbins explained that the event gives Calvary’s president an opportunity to tell attendees “what we’ve done in the past year, as well as where we’re going.”
Jeff Campa, Calvary’s Interim President, said, “Hosting the 2020 President’s Dinner at the Loretto allows for two wonderful things. First, it’s an incredibly beautiful venue for any banquet. Second, since this facility was the home of Calvary for many years it’s the perfect backdrop to reflect on the work God has done, and continues to do, in and through the University.”
A highlight of this year’s event will be the focus on how God is using alumni who attended Calvary at Loretto. Campa said, “The testimony of alumni whose ministries were molded at this location serves as a reminder of God’s faithfulness, and challenges current and future generations to diligence.”

“It was a wonderful time for me. I learned so much about God, about the Bible, about life, and about relationships. I grew up a lot! Calvary helped set me on a path of living for the Lord for the rest of my life.”

“I developed a lot of good Christian friendships. I was on the gospel team called Melody Messenger that had a lot to do with my Calvary experience. …Plus the sound teaching of the Word. Dispensational theology was important to me.”
