Former President George W. Bush was in Milwaukee Friday night as the recipient of the Divine Servant Award in the Time of Grace at Wisconsin Lutheran College.

Bush appeared before a crowd of 600 to honor him for, “his qualities of Christian servant leadership and exhibiting Christian values through his service to the United States of America as the nation's 43rd president,” a news release from the school said.

The former president touched upon two themes: "I build my life on a foundation that will not shift. My faith frees me," and "Faith changes lives. I know, because faith has changed mine."

"What a historic moment for our young college as we celebrate the blessing and impact of Christian servant leadership at WLC and honor one of our nation's greatest leaders for living his faith in such an impactful and meaningful way," said Dr. Daniel Johnson in a statement, "Mr. Bush's message was insightful, honest, and inspiring, and we left more committed than ever to lead boldly and serve passionately all while letting our faith shine."
