Chaplain of U.S. Senate to Speak Oct. 23

Oct. 22, 1996

WACO, Texas - Dr. Lloyd Ogilvie, chaplain of the U.S. Senate, will speak during Baylor University's Chapel-Forum at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, in Waco Hall.

As Senate chaplain, Ogilvie opens the Senate each day in prayer and is responsible for counseling and spiritual care for senators, their families and their staffs. Ogilvie defines his role as non-political, non-partisan, non-sectarian but a faithful counselor to all.

Ogilvie was selected by Baylor as one of the 12 most effective preachers in the English-speaking world, according to a worldwide survey. Dr. Larry Lyon, professor of sociology at Baylor who helped conduct the survey to find the preachers, said Ogilvie received some of the most stellar praise of all the preachers.

"A number of people in our survey who recommended him were most enthusiastic," he said. "They said his preaching was masterful, provocative and entertaining."

Included on Baylor's list of the most effective preachers in the English-speaking world, in which seven denominations are represented, are the Rev. Billy Graham and Dr. Charles Swindoll.
