■ SHARE THE HOPE TOGETHER WEBINAR, JULY 8 — Need help planning for September 11 evangelism? Are you wondering what your handbill should say? Need to find a printer? Do you have questions that need answers?
Contact: www.sharethehope2009.com during the last week of June for links to the webinar which will be July 8 at 2 pm, ET. Even more importantly, tune into the Share the Hope Together classes hosted by Gary Gibbs. He and his experienced guest evangelists will walk you through the planning process.
While at the site, check out the 28 seminars on various facets of evangelism, available in video as recorded at the Adventist Ministries Convention.
■ WALLA WALLA UNIVERSITY IS INTRODUCING HOMEBASE, a new residential life and discipleship program for students who wish to be part of WWU’s socially vibrant and spiritually rich campus community while pursuing selected areas of study at Walla Walla Community College.
“Homebase is a creative collaboration option that will allow many students to realize their educational and social goals,” says Ken Rogers, WWU vice president for student life. "Our goal is to provide a spiritually and socially stimulating on-campus environment at rates competitive with what the average community college student may pay for rent and living expenses on their own.”
