Opportunity Knocks: Senator Tim Scott Discusses New Book, Life Story and Faith

by   |     |   president@bju.edu   |  

We named this podcast Highest Potential because we wanted to share stories of how Bob Jones University helps students reach their highest potential for God’s glory.

In this episode, we’ll be talking with someone who has dedicated much of his life to helping his constituents reach their highest potential. Having served in the United States Senate since 2013, Senator Tim Scott has focused his energy on unleashing the positive impact that happens when hard work meets opportunity.

His positive influence and strong Christian testimony led BJU to award Senator Scott with an honorary Doctor of Laws degree in 2018.

Senator Scott recently released a book entitled, Opportunity Knocks: How Hard Work, Community, and Business Can Improve Lives and End Poverty. In my conversation with him today, we discuss his new book, his life story and his faith.

Don’t forget that you can listen to this episode and all future episodes on Apple PodcastsSpotify or wherever you get your podcasts. If you enjoy this episode, I’d really appreciate if you left us a positive review — it will help others find our podcast.


Steve Pettit traveled for many years with the Steve Pettit Evangelistic Team before becoming president of Bob Jones University. His ultimate goal for BJU is to prepare students to serve and love others, no matter their vocation.
