The Taylor/Dalton Years

Donald W. Taylor was Pastor for the Student Congregation and University Chaplain for Pacific Lutheran University (PLU) from 1969 to 1971. During his time at PLU, the Religious Life committee was formed to address the religious needs of the students (1971). Though the Student Congregation continued to be the dominant worship community at PLU, other religious groups gained popularity and attendance. Efforts were made to give students the opportunity to worship with off-campus congregations. Student Congregation services were moved to the Chris Knudsen Hall in the University Center. Morris Dalton was his Associate Pastor from 1969-1970.
