February 8-9, 2008

Homecoming offers the perfect opportunity to reconnect with old friends and your alma mater. Our theme, “In Step With George Fox,” reminds us of the personal journey that each alumnus took as a student, and serves as a call to all alumni to reengage with this place they once called home. Reunions will be held for the classes of 1938, 1948, 1968, 1978, 1983, 1988, and 1998. Affinity reunions are planned for alumni of Pacific College and for those who took a ballroom, western line dance, or rhythms class from Steve Grant.

Wes Davis, pastor of New Life Church in Kitsap, Wash., will share how we can equip youth to do more than spiritually survive. He also will talk about ways God redeems our hurts to bring healing to others, including the young people we lead. Kaleo is for people who minister to youth – pastors, parents, teachers, and friends.
