Spiritual Emphasis Week (SEW) is an annual event designed to foster the spiritual revitalization of Hargrave’s Corps of Cadets. It is when the Faith pillar at Hargrave Military Academy takes front and center across the campus. Cadets, staff, and the local community are encouraged to join us and take time out of their busy schedules for deliberate spiritual development.
This year’s guest speaker will be Bill Paige. Bill is a gifted, passionate speaker whose broad appeal is anchored in a depth of life experience that includes 20 years of police and detective work in and around the New York City metropolitan area. In addition, Bill served 14 years as the associate chaplain at Children’s Village, working with emotionally disturbed boys in the city, as well as 21 years of senior leadership in Young Life. As an ordained minister, Bill brings a wealth of valuable insight into emotional and behavioral problems among young people. His communication gifts combined with his life experience and honed insight put him in very high demand in this country and worldwide as a speaker.
This year’s activities will also include several other guest and musical artists, such as Adrion Butler, whose ministry through Hip Hop will excite, engage, and empower the cadets, as well as Bryan Drake, who is a Christian illusionist and speaker for this generation! His gospel presentation is woven into every illusion he performs, lending itself to an incredible show and a powerful message.
We look forward to seeing you on campus!
