CAMPUS PROGRAM DIRECTOR AS CHAPLAIN

CAMPUS PROGRAM DIRECTOR AS CHAPLAIN

It has been a few months now, since the time I was pulled over by the officer, and each time I sit in a police car I am thankful for the opportunity to serve. Having done a few ride alongs I am learning a new culture, my eyes are being open to new needs in my community. My prayers are being answered by a God who cares for and extends grace to me as a Pastor and to those in uniform who work to keep us safe.

ALANNA KNAPP APPOINTED TO NAD EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

ALANNA KNAPP APPOINTED TO NAD EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

At the North American Division’s Year End Meetings which take place in the fall of each year, delegates made a unanimous decision to include students attending public universities as part of the division’s highest decision making body.  During a short, but very powerful report given by the Adventist Christian Fellowship President Lucien Nana-Yobo, a PhD student in geology from the University of Houston, Nana-Yobo made an appeal to the body to include public university students in this committee.  One of the delegates from the floor responded to this appeal and made a motion to add 10 new delegates representing public college campuses to the Year End Meetings.  The motion passed. This action follows a similar action which took place previously when students on Adventist college campuses were added to the NAD Executive Committee. Alanna Knapp has extensive experience in public campus ministry.  In 2002, she served CAMPUS as an intern, serving as a missionary at the University of Michigan.  Following her internship she served CAMPUS as an Administrative Assistant and Student Network Coordinator.  She founded and served as the president of a student organization at Michigan Technological University and led the student group during its strongest years of ministry and fellowship.  Now, she is completing her graduate studies at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.  With a vast experience in campus ministry, Alanna is an excellent representative of the more than 75% of Adventist young people who do not study on Adventist college campuses. This vote by the North American Division is an enormous stepping stone in the work of public campus ministry for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America.
Planning for the future

Planning for the future

Surrounded by the beauty of Camp Au Sable, CAMPUS staff met, at the close of June, to pray and plan for the coming academic year. It was a time of spiritual renewal and convivial camaraderie – we sensed the presence of the Lord!

In a couple of weeks, we will kick off the year with our leadership training program: We’re excited about what the Lord will do for, and in us, this year, as we prepare secular universities for the imminent return of Christ. We humbly expect great things because we serve a great God!

ANDY HEADS MI COMMUNICATIONS

ANDY HEADS MI COMMUNICATIONS

The Michigan Conference Executive Committee has appointed Pastor Andy Im to serve as the new Director of Communications for Michigan.  Although Andy remains an integral part of CAMPUS, he now fills the vacancy left by Justin Kim who accepted a call as the Assistant Director for Sabbath School and Personal Ministries at the General Conference.  Andy’s passion for photography and keen understanding of social media trends will take his department to the next level.  We look forward to God’s blessings in the upcoming years!

SEXUAL BY DESIGN

From February 12-14, CAMPUS will be holding its Winter Retreat under the theme: SEXUAL BY DESIGN.  Sexuality is a topic that is often neglected in Christian (and especially) Adventist circles.  Among other things, the retreat will address our need to speak about sexuality and the Bible, provide professional counseling for people who have sexually related struggles, and address biblical sexuality.

Plan to be there and invite your friends!
