The Calvin & Muriel Hanson Raw Edge of Faith Award

The founding president of Trinity Western University and his wife committed their lives to seeing students live out the motto, “Don’t doubt in the dark what God has shown you in the light.” This award, based off the book On The Raw Edge of Faith by Calvin Hanson, is given to an alum who has demonstrated that they have grasped and sustained this vision through their willingness to commit their gifts to serve our Lord, His world, and their calling, even in times of darkness. Read more about the Hansons and the Raw Edge of Faith Award. The award winner will receive a copy of Cal Hanson’s book.
