September 24, 2012
Dr. Tony Campolo has boldly challenged millions of people all over the world to respond to God’s boundless love by combining personal discipleship, evangelism, and social justice. He will bring his ministry and dynamic spirit to Dordt College on October 1, as a First Mondays Speaker Series presenter.
While visiting Dordt, Campolo will give two lectures. The first presentation, “Speaking My Mind: The Radical Evangelical Prophet,” will be held at 11 a.m., and the second, “Tackling Tough Issues Many Christians are Afraid to Face,” will be held at 7:30 p.m. Both presentations will be in the B.J. Haan Auditorium.
An author, sociologist, pastor, social activist, and follower of Jesus Christ, Campolo has worked extensively to share the Gospel. He is professor emeritus of sociology at Eastern University in Philadelphia and is a former faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the founder and president of the Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education. Author of more than 35 books, including Stories that Feed your Heart, Campolo blogs at the website Red Letter Christians. He and his wife reside near Philadelphia.
The First Mondays Speaker Series’ mission is to bring biblically based thinkers, writers, and opinion-leaders to Dordt College. Through enriching academic experiences, the series equips students, alumni, and the broader community to work effectively toward Christ-centered renewal in contemporary life.
This event, which is free and open to the public, is located on the Dordt College campus (498 Fourth Ave. NE in Sioux Center, Iowa).
