Youth Rally with Ken Rudolph and the Andersons

Ken Rudolph has been serving as a pastor, youth pastor and conference speaker for over thirty years.  We had the privilege of having Mr. Rudolph and his lovely wife, Jinner, for a conference with our high school.  He spoke at a daily chapel service beginning on Wed., and it culminated with an area wide youth rally Friday night, where the youth from all 8 ABWE churches were invited to come and bring their friends as well.  It was followed by church wide service on Saturday, where the 8 churches were invited to come together for a service, which included a time of music worship and a time of prayer for each of the churches' specific needs.  Mr. Rudolph was the guest speaker for that, too.

Joining the Rudolphs were Jordan and Jessa Anderson, sharing their musical talents as they led in worship.  Jordan is a former student of our administrator, Cal Voelker, when he served at a Christian school in Iowa.  The delightful husband and wife team of Jordan and Jessa Anderson are both dedicated singer/songwriters, each having put out their own solo work.  Check out their music on iTunes or google them to see if they will be coming to a town near you!

Some of the youth helped lead in worship 

Some of the songs were familiar songs but sung in Portuguese!


Sorry, this picture is really dark, but it is Jordan and Jessa sharing in song before Mr. Rudolph spoke.

Ken, Jinner and myself - Mr. Rudolph is a gifted comedic communicator with wonderful anecdotes clearly conveying the truth of the Bible, and yes, he is fully aware that he resembles Mr. Bean.

OK, now for the "serious" picture. :-) 
They were a delight to get to know and such an encouragement to talk to!
