This is already shaping up as a really phenomenal college ministry exploration trip, and I’m still not halfway into it! I should have a little more time in the coming days to post about what I’m learning, but at least I can keep you updated on what I’ve been experiencing – with some links to learn more about those things.
Yesterday’s main event was a visit to Fuller Seminary to sit down with Dr. Kara Powell, Executive Director of the Fuller Youth Institute (and Fuller faculty member).
I encourage you to check out that page, and I’ll try to write more about FYI tomorrow.
But that’s not all! While I was at Fuller, I also got to attend All-Seminary Chapel (their first of the Quarter) and tracked down the syllabus for the one college ministry course they have in their catalog. (Click here to see one of those syllabi.) Sadly, it doesn’t look like that course has been taught in a few years. (The seminary does have a course or two for only InterVarsity staff, out at their Colorado campus.)
That was part of my never-ending quest to find seminaries that teach college ministry. Click here to see my post of the ones I’ve found so far.
And in the extra adventures category…
The other big event yesterday was getting to see the Tonight Show taping, out-of-the-blue. In fact, if I hadn’t been in Pasadena (visiting Fuller) already, I wouldn’t have been able to make it to Burbank in time. Those kinds of cool provisions remind me of the many blessings that happened during the big trip! It was very cool to see Jay Leno in the last couple of months of his Tonight Show reign – plus Michael Caine, Dennis Rodman, and the Spinal Tap guys.
Oh, and I babysat last night for a half-year-old.
Like I said, this is shaping up to be quite a trip…
