    Dr. Bud Bence took on the role of Martin Luther Oct. 4, giving a monologue based on Luther's life and events surrounding the Reformation. October marks the 500th anniversary of Luther nailing the 95 theses to the Castle Church door in Wittenburg, Germany, which took place on the 31st.

    Bence was the speaker for the B.H and Dorothy Phaup Holiness Emphasis series October 2-4 at Southern Wesleyan University’s Central campus. Bence is an Emeritus (retired) faculty member of Indiana Wesleyan University, where he taught church history courses for more than 25 years.

    The Phaup Holiness Emphasis series is named for B.H. and Dorothy Phaup, who for 50 years ministered together in The Wesleyan Church. During his ministry, B.H. Phaup, a 1932 SWU graduate and a trustee from 1951 until his death was a highly regarded preacher and well-known expositor of the Wesleyan holiness message. Prior to his death, Phaup had expressed a desire to establish a holiness lecture series at SWU and had set aside funds to make the series possible. That goal was realized in 2000 when their son Gary and his wife Nina endowed the B.H. and Dorothy Phaup Holiness Emphasis Series.

    Southern Wesleyan University is a Christ-centered, student-focused learning community devoted to transforming lives by challenging students to be dedicated scholars and servant-leaders who impact the world for Christ. For details about degree programs, go online to swu.edu.
