Faith and Business Luncheons

Head Football Coach Rhett Lashlee Since its inception, Perkins School of Theology remains committed to formal and informal theological reflection with persons whose faith influences and shapes the good of both the church and the world. Perkins’ mission to prepare women and men for faithful leadership in Christian ministry extends not only to students and ministry professionals but also to laypersons and the larger community. In support of this, Perkins hosts a number of Faith and Business Luncheons per year as well as an annual Public Life Personal Faith Scholarship Luncheon for critical reflection on the intersection of public life and personal faith.

Perkins is honored to have Head Football Coach Rhett Lashlee as our guest speaker for the April 15th Faith and Business Luncheon. Coach Lashlee is in his second season as the head coach at SMU and has a 18-8 career record. Lashlee, who served as offensive coordinator for the Mustangs for two seasons (2018-19), also served as the offensive coordinator at Miami in 2020 and 2021. A one-time finalist (2013) and two-time semifinalist (2019, 2020) for the Broyles Award, Lashlee has the distinction of being the only coach ever nominated for the Broyles Award four different times at four different schools (Arkansas State, Auburn, SMU, Miami). He and his wife Lauren have been married for 16 years and have four children.
