Adult Education Report Annual Meeting 2008

Prepared by Clark Wilson

The Purpose Driven Life series continued for much of the year. Fr. Andrew has been leading a weekday evening Bible study, and Lee Kopulos has been leading a Sunday morning Bible study. The semi-formal coffee hour discussion group continues around the bookstore table. Deacon Danial distributed a Lenten reading list.

A transfusion of new blood is revivifying the Orthodox School of the Seventy. Else Tennesen gathered information to bring the credits list and whiteboard up to date. Else Tennesen, Mark and Jill Olson, Fr. Andrew, and I met earlier this month (January 2008) to define the School’s curriculum and future plans. We intend that each certificate will have a person responsible for it – a “dean,” we’re calling the role for now -- and we will be inviting people to take on this ministry.

Adult education emerged as a top priority from the parish vision session of the long-term planning initiative.

As is always the case, many events and activities throughout St. Luke’s contribute directly to adult education – the Evangelist, the trip to the annual Evangelism conference, the speaker on the Orthodox mission in India, the movie club, the bookstore, and so on.

The library continues to grow, thanks to books donated by many parishioners.

Goals for 2008:

• Continue the successful in-person activities.
• Define the list of School certificates and the requirements for each; recruit the “deans”; finish making credits administration smooth and routine.
• Assist in the parish-wide activities following up after last year’s parish vision meeting.

St. Luke Purpose Driven Life Report-Ken Stevens

In 2007, the St. Luke Purpose Driven Life group continued to meet an into its 4th year. It started in February, 2005. This 40-week video curriculum is based on the best-selling book, The Purpose Driven Life, by Reverend Rick Warren. The Purpose Driven Life Small Group Series is designed to help Christians build greater spiritual health and balance in our lives.

During 2007, we completed Volume six of a six-volume curriculum. The intent was to lead our group into a biblical understanding of how God uses our spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality and experiences to prepare us for ministry. Fr. Andrew Harrison led the discussion groups, and we met weekly on Friday evenings in-home.
