Featured Speaker

Pastor Jonathan Min is serving at the University SDA Church in East Lansing, Michigan which is located across from Michigan State University. He works closely with the Adventist student group on campus and seeks to build a community of committed young people.

Workshop: Friendship Evangelism
There’s a common misconception that soul winning is reserved for the pastor alone–or by preaching alone. However, the majority of life changing encounters you find in scripture are the one-on-one interviews. In this workshop we’ll look at biblical principles of a kind of evangelism that anyone can do.

Pastor Mackenzie Jean

Workshop: Student Leader on Campus. This workshop will help shape the role and responsibilities for student leaders with a campus ministry. This includes best practices with the club as well as faith practices.

Pastor Daniel

Pastor Daniel serves a Collegedale Korean Church in Tennessee. He is married to Miel, and they have three children: Daniel, Abigail, and Noel. Pastor Daniel believes in the inherent patterns within the Bible and is passionate about helping others unlock its profound messages. In his free time, he enjoys photography, travel, and reading. Workshop: The Periodic Table of the Bible.

Esther Kim

has served as a campus ministry leader at Bryn Mawr College and is currently serving at Iowa State University and ANEW (A grassroots student-run campus ministry network for NAD). She loves connecting with people and serving the Lord! Workshop: How to Manage Spiritual and Emotional Struggles as a Campus Ministry Leader. As a spiritual leader, we run into the problem of carrying burdens or being overwhelmed by the spiritual/emotional struggles. It’s not easy trying to be like Jesus all the time! In this workshop, we will discuss experiences and ways to overcome such struggles.

Pastor Darrel Lindensmith

Pastor Darrel has been working at one State University for 13 years and two years ago added another school. His focus has been to connect campus ministry outreach with local church evangelism, employing and training students to participate in Apologetics resource book tables on campus where conversation and friendships can begin.
