On Thursday, October 9th over 200 women gathered in a white tent on the Metzger Lawn for the annual Ladies’ Tea, hosted by the wives of the Board of Trustees. The event theme was “Servants who Reach the World for Christ” and featured global décor and cuisine. Dozens of brightly colored Japanese paper lanterns draped the ceiling and the guests dined on sophisticated square tables with green and pink centerpieces.

The event showcased dynamic Biola faculty members, including keynote speakers Erik & Donna Thoennes, who shared how a Biola education transforms students to impact the world. Emceed by Danny Aanderud, professor of modern languages, the event benefited the Biola Fund and featured a challenge to the attendees from Paula Corey to expand their support for Biola.

At the end of the Ladies' Tea, a video was played, highlighting students reaching the world for Christ.
