Wisconsin Lutheran College established the Divine Servant Award in 2017 as an opportunity to honor an individual who exemplifies qualities of Christian servant leadership and has exhibited Christian values throughout his or her life of service. We seek to amplify our mission of preparing Christian servant leaders who will influence and change our world. This honor is intended to be bestowed upon a high-profile individual and will serve as an awareness and fundraising event for Wisconsin Lutheran College. Past awardees have included President George W. Bush, Tony Dungy, and David Green. We are privileged to recognize Tim Tebow, two-time national champion, first-round NFL draft pick, and Heisman Trophy winner, as our featured speaker and recipient of the Divine Servant Award.
