It’s used for the treatment of cancer patients, people with blood disorders, premature babies and transplant recipients.”

Students of ministry come together to make history at Preacher Camp PDF Print E-mail

    Imagine having a presentation every day for a week, having to prepare for it after most of the world is in bed and be prepared to present your thoughts early the next morning. Or having to write a paper or a story or a speech every night and be prepared to present it the next morning.
    Then imagine when you are presenting your work there is a small video camera in the back of the room recording every gesture, pause and word of your presentation.
    And when you and all of your peers have concluded with your presentation an ‘expert’ who has sat quietly in the back of the room has taken pages of notes from the morning of presentations and then shares his comments with the group.
    This is exactly what took place last week at Country Lake Christian Retreat in Henryville. A group of young preachers came together at this beautiful spiritual setting for a history making preacher camp. The students were put in small groups where they were able to learn from each other and collaborate with seasoned preachers.

Clark County Sheriff to host conference on teen violence PDF Print E-mail

    Clark County Sheriff, Danny Rodden, is sponsoring a conference on teen violence.  
    Sheriff Rodden has invited author and speaker Phil Chalmers to Clark County for this presentation, “Inside the Mind of a Teen Killer”.  
    Phil Chalmers has been studying youth culture and juvenile homicide for over 20 years, and is a former police chaplain. He has written many books and produced two documentaries on youth culture.  What separates Chalmers from other speakers and writers is he actually speaks to the killers themselves, as well as their victims and relatives.  He also spends considerable time with law enforcement and investigators to find out what really happened, how we could have avoided this tragedy, study what the police did right, and learn what the police could have done different.
    Chalmers wants to teach us “Why Today’s Teens Kill”, “What Motivates Them”, and “What Warning Signs”, you should be looking for.
    For more information concerning Phil Chalmers and his programs, go to www.philchalmers.com.
