I’m excited to tell you about a digital project our team has been working on over the past few months.
As you know, our normal Camp Arcadia experience is limited this summer due to COVID-19. Since we could not all be together at Camp Arcadia this summer, I’m eager to tell you that we are bringing the Dean’s Program to you through this online opportunity!
Starting July 18th, we will be offering three weeks of Dean’s Program sessions online with some of the finest professors and teachers around the nation. These presentations were created just for you. We will be rolling out more Dean’s Program sessions this fall.
Here is how it will work. Sign up for the Dean’s program and then you will get access to three, 25 minute or so video presentations from the Dean. These will be sent to you on Saturday, Monday and Wednesday of each week. On Wednesday evening at 8 PM ET you will be able to join in on a live Q & A with the Dean via Zoom.
The first three sessions are now open and available for enrollment. You can sign up by visiting the links below:
(July 18 – 22) “Meant for More” with Dean John Nunes
The United States of America seems stuck in a painful state of hyperpartisanship in which opponents demonize each other and impose demands that are non-nuanced and non-negotiable. These talks will look at some habits to help Christians forge a pathway forward as a force for the common good.
(July 25 – 29) “Storyteller King- Fresh Perspectives on the Parables of Jesus” with Dean Gabe Kasper
We love to tell stories and we love to consume stories in movies, books, or around a campfire with our friends. And stories have incredible power. They shape us, transform our thinking, and give us insight into the world. It’s no wonder, then, that nearly one third of Jesus’s teachings come in the form of stories – called parables!
(August 1 – 5) “Lessons from A Failed Missionary” with Dean Ryan Tinetti
If you have ever struggled to be a good witness to Christ—in whatever vocation you find yourself—Pastor Tinetti will share lessons and stories from his (often unsuccessful) ventures to encourage and reassure you that, as it says in the Small Catechism, “the kingdom of God indeed comes, even without our prayers.”
