“A Life of Service”
Speakers: Gil and Rhoda Friesen – 2014 Tabor College Alumni Merit Award Recipients Gil and Rhoda Friesen have volunteered with Mennonite Disaster Service since 2006, beginning in the Gulf Coast following hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustavo and Ike. They continued their service in Colorado following the massive floods of 2013. They will share their experiences of the many blessings and challenges of volunteer service.
“The Civil War: A Conversation with my Ancestor”
Speaker: Max Terman
Max Terman, Professor Emeritus at Tabor College, has spent many hours researching the Civil War and the role his ancestors played in these events. Max has taken his research and written two historical fiction novels. During his presentation, Max will also discuss his two recent books, Hiram’s Honor and Hiram’s Hope, both now for sale.
“My Life Long Learning Story”
Speaker: Paul Klassen
Paul Klassen, former pastor of the Memorial Road MB Church in Edmond, Okla., has had a life full of adventure following the Lord. He says for more than 40 years this path led him to primarily invest his life within the church context. Following retirement from pastoral ministry in May 2012, his path took unexpected turns. His life-long learning story will be a “show and tell” presentation of the ways he now invests his life in ministry beyond the church walls through wood art and chaplaincy with the Divisional Office of the FBI in Oklahoma City.
