At the intersection of faith and society

Lenoir-Rhyne University

When students at Lenoir-Rhyne University, Hickory, N.C., cross the highest point of campus, they encounter one of the world’s largest statues of Martin Luther. Installed in 2010 as a gift from Charlotte philanthropist Irwin Belk, the 12-foot granite statue was designed by North Carolina sculptor Jon Hair. Lenoir-Rhyne was begun by four Lutheran pastors in 1891, and in 2012 it grew via a merger to include Lenoir-Rhyne’s School of Theology (also known as the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary) in Columbia, S.C.
