This Is My Father's World
Ken Rogers speaks for camporee
Ken Rogers, vice president for student life, recently spoke for the annual Upper Columbia Conference of Seventh-day Adventist Pathfinder Camporee. The event took place at Farragut State Park, just north of Couer d’Alene, Idaho, and had 750 attendees.
“The theme of the weekend was ‘This Is My Father’s World,’ which was the topic of my presentations,” explains Rogers.
This was the second time Rogers has spoken for the UCC camporee; the first time was 20 years ago and he was happy to do it again. He felt right at home during the music services, as the praise group was from the Village Church in College Place, located a mile from the WWU campus.
“Every Sabbath a group of 10-12 kids play guitar and lead song service for church there,” says Rogers. “They brought their gifts to camporee and blessed us all with their music.”
At the end of the weekend, two Pathfinders were baptized and 115 more made decisions to begin the Bible study process leading up to baptism.
“I had a delightful time there,” says Rogers. “It was well-organized and the Pathfinders and staff were very responsive and seemed appreciative of the messages I shared. It was a wonderful spirit-filled weekend.”
