Kaleo | February 20, 2010

Kaleo 2010When Kids Hurt
With Chap Clark and Steve Sherwood

Chap and Steve will help us know how to respond to kids who have been abandoned by the church’s program-driven culture and provide practical solutions for dealing with prolonged adolescence – a phenomenon that impacts youth and youth leaders.

Kaleo (“called”) is for people who minister to youth – pastors, parents, teachers, mentors and friends – who are called to be challenged to think and live differently for the sake of Christ and the youth they love and lead.

Changes to Alumni Course Audit Benefit

Starting in summer 2009, the tuition-free course-auditing benefit for alumni has undergone a few changes. The program continues to provide graduated George Fox alumni the opportunity to investigate courses of interest and to continue their lifelong learning at their alma mater. However, the program’s administrative fee has increased to $50 per credit, the first fee increase in 11 years. As part of this change, there is no longer a limit to the number of classes that can be audited in a given year. Questions? Write to or call 503-554-2131.
