Character is about excellence as a whole human being in every aspect of one's life. It is about being the best person one can be - being all God created us to be. Our goal is to be excellent persons:

  • People of integrity whose lives are characterized by truthfulness, honesty, and stewardship;
  • People of justice who treat all people fairly, respect diversity, and practice Christian love;
  • People of compassion who live by the Golden Rule in service of others.

The Wendt Character Initiative seeks to promote a culture of excellent moral character.

Mark your calendars for our upcoming Michael Lester Wendt Character Lectures:
