Special Invitation from Dr. Towns
Dr. Elmer Towns, co-founder of Liberty University, is one of our 50+ speakers at the Exponential Regionals this fall.
Getting to Know Dr. Towns
Exponential asked our speakers to answer a few questions to help get to know them better. Check out some of Elmer’s answers to the questions below:
If you were not doing what you are now doing vocationally, and you could pursue any other career, what would it be?
If I could do any other career is the question without an answer. I feel the call of God upon my life and God has called me to teach and carry out the Great Commission. I am doing that by teaching classes here at Liberty University plus five other colleges were I have taught recently. If I could not teach at Liberty University and the other places, I would wait on the Lord to lead me to other colleges where I could teach. These would have to be Christian colleges, and I would be preparing the students to carry out the Great Commission. I don’t have any secret wish unfulfilled dreams . . . I am living out my dream.. (Wow! That’s awesome.)
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would live in Lynchburg, Virginia
What’s your favorite movie of all time?
Princess Bride (Classic!)
What’s your favorite hobby or thing to do in your spare time?
Other than the Bible, what’s the most impactful book you’ve ever read?
The most impactful book is probably the last book I read. I am always reading.
Have you written any books?

Hero Maker Conferences
Hero Maker is the theme for Exponential 2018. The theme focuses on the shift from being the hero to coming alongside others for them to become the heroes in our church’s unfolding story.
