“We are excited to bring such a successful and seasoned entrepreneur as Steve Bell to speak on campus,” said Bill Peel, executive director of LETU’s Center for Faith and Work. “Steve has told me that the story of LETU’s founder, R.G. LeTourneau, made a huge impact on his life. Mr. LeTourneau was a man who didn’t leave his Christian faith at home on Monday mornings when he went to work, but instead saw his business as a calling to do his work with excellence and to reach people for Christ.”
