In an effort to improve our culture of service, we are excited to be able to provide this opportunity for student employees to attend Advanced Connections training! Topics to be discussed will include buildling a service culture, overcoming barriers, effective communication, checking for customer satisfaction, meeting service challenges and more.

Student employees wanting to attend Advanced Connections training during Tuesday Choices will need to RSVP by emailing training@andrews.edu, and they will need to provide their full name, ID#, email address, and the department in which they work.

Andrews Celebrates Martin Luther King Jr.

by Jenna Neil

On Thursday, January 15, Onleilove Alston, a faith community organizer and contributing writer for Sojourners Magazine, spoke for Andrews University’s 2015 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. Her topic was “The Biblical Call to Justice and African Roots of the Sabbath.”

Alston is known for her activism for justice and the poor after firsthand experience with poverty, foster care and homelessness. During her presentation she talked about Biblical justice specifically from Isaiah 61. She began by reading verses 1–4 and asked students to consider what the scripture was saying about God’s justice, a personal walk with God and several other areas.

“Nothing I can talk about,” she said, “can compare to what God says in His word.” Speaking of the recent events in Ferguson, Alston continued, “Do you think God has anything to do with justice? There’s our version of justice and God’s version. We need to use the Bible to examine God’s version of justice.”

As part of her talk, Alston used three examples of how the justice of Isaiah 61 was portrayed. The first was from Matthew and the reverse Exodus, or a return to Egypt to remember the first exodus. The second was Dr. King’s poor people’s campaign, specifically Resurrection City, a shantytown for the poor located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The poor people living in Resurrection City rose up in the sprit of God with the support of allies to change their lives. The third and final example Alston used was from her own life.

“The young people where I grew up were starting to reach out,” she said. “They were changing the way things had been between the government and the people.”

Alston, who grew up in East New York, Brooklyn, wasn’t raised in the church. At the age of 10, she started to read the Bible and pray. She was converted while attending a local Baptist Church four years later. Alston has a degree from Penn State University in human development and African-American studies and two master’s degrees, one in divinity from Union Theological Seminary, New York City, and the other in social work from Columbia University School of Social Work, New York, New York. She is currently the interim executive director at Faith in New York and a workshop facilitator, speaker and writer.

The Music Moves Him

David Phelps believes in the power of song.

The Christian musician, best known as tenor in the Gaither Vocal Band and for his three-octave vocal range, says whether he's singing as part of Bill Gaither's legendary gospel group or as a solo artist, his goal is always the same.

"Music really is a vehicle for emotion," Phelps says by telephone from his farm in Culleoka, Tenn., just outside of Nashville. "If a song can move me in some way then in turn I can figure out how to interpret that so I can then go out on a nightly basis and look people in the face and hopefully sing it in a way that's moving to them. To me that's what it's all about."

Tonight, Phelps will be trying to move the audience at Andrews University's Howard Performing Arts Center in a solo tour stop touting the songs off his latest album, 2012's "Classic," as well as a few new tunes from his forthcoming record, "Freedom," which is due out in April.

AICER Presents Dr. Nadia Nosworthy

Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) invites students, faculty and interested participants to attend a research symposium on Monday, January 26, at 5:30 p.m.

Presenter:  Dr. Nadia Nosworthy, Graduate Psychology & Counseling Assistant Professor, Andrews University

Assessment of Early Numeracy Skills
There is growing evidence to suggest math skills are just as important as reading skills when predicting a child’s academic success and overall well-being. Children’s ability to compare symbolic (e.g., Arabic numerals) and non-symbolic (e.g., dot arrays) numerical magnitudes has been found to correlate with their math achievement. Consequently my colleagues and I designed a two-minute paper-and-pencil assessment to measure kindergarten children’s ability to compare symbolic and non-symbolic numerical magnitudes and assessed the degree to which performance on this measure explains individual differences in achievement. Research results revealed that symbolic and non-symbolic number comparison accuracy scores correlated with individual differences in arithmetic achievement and participants’ scores on the paper-and-pencil test in kindergarten were a significant predictor of math performance in grade one. The findings suggest the important role of symbolic and non-symbolic processing in children’s higher-level math abilities and also highlight the potential of this tool for assessment of early foundational numerical abilities.

Face-to-face participants meet in Bell Hall 015

Thanks from President & Mrs. Andreasen

To our many friends in the university and the community:

Demetra and I wish to express our heartfelt appreciation for the many thoughtful expressions of sympathy we have received and continue to receive following the death of my mother last month.  The cards, e-mails, phone calls, kind words along the way and warm handshakes have been overwhelming, encouraging and comforting.

Thank you so much.

Acapella Group is Pitch Perfect

NOTE: The following is an excerpt (link to full story follows) from an interview with The Filharmonic done by the Herald Palladium. The Filharmonic will perform at the Howard Performing Arts Center on the campus of Andrews Univeristy on Sunday, Jan. 18, at 7 p.m. Visit howard.andrews.edu for tickets.
 

Joe Caigoy had already transferred to Michigan State University when he got the call.

Vocal bass Jules Cruz and beat boxer Niko Del Rey, who Caigoy had previously performed with, were putting together an all-Filipino-American a capella group to audition for the fourth season of NBC's musical competition, "The Sing-Off."

"They asked me if I wanted to be a part of it so I flew home to Los Angeles," Caigoy says by telephone from Lansing.

In addition to Caigoy, Cruz and Del Rey also recruited vocalists VJ Rosales, Trace Gaynor and Barry Fortgang to form the group now known as The Filharmonic.

"Jules knew Barry from middle school and they grabbed the other two guys from other singing competitions," Caigoy says. "The day I flew in was the day we all met, and it was the day we filmed our audition tape."

A first-of-its-kind conference reflecting on Adventism in China and Asia held at Hong Kong Adventist College (HKAC) took place at the end of October 2014.

Lawrence W. Onsager, dean of libraries, had the opportunity to attend this conference, which is jointly sponsored by Adventism in China (AIC) and the Association of Seventh-day Adventists Historians (ASDAH).

Onsager represented Andrews University at the official opening of the Center for Chinese Adventist Heritage located in the Hong Kong Adventist College library.

“The purpose of this conference was to renew the interest in studying the history of Adventism in China—the early days and currently as well,” stated Onsager when discussing the topic of his paper, “On Fire for China, the Story of Erik Pilquist, Pioneer Adventist Missionary to China,” which he presented at the conference.

Onsager’s paper is a preliminary study on the influence that Erik Pilquist had on the early training of the initial group of Adventist inland China missionaries and their methods for bringing the Gospel to the non-Christian Chinese.

Through his own research, Bruce W.N. Lo, the mover and shaker between Adventism in China, found Onsager’s research on early mission work in China—work that Onsager had done while the library director at Union College in the 1980s.

“Out of the blue, last year Bruce Lo approached me and asked me for some of my research so I shared it with him and then he talked about this conference and suggested I might want to do a paper for it, which I did, and then presented,” shared Onsager.

“HKAC has made a request for the Center of Adventist Research to share historical resources between our center and theirs,” claimed Onsager. “That of course is not an official thing at this point, just a request. This will be quite easy from our part because our Center of Adventist research is working to develop an Adventist digital library.”

Technically, there is no Adventist church in China today, although conference presenters pinpointed that about 500,000 believers live in this country of 1.35 billion people. In the realm of religion the Chinese government wishes churches to be self-governing, self-supporting, and self-promulgating. By respecting these principles, the Chinese Union Mission has no authority over the Adventist churches in China.

Today, few Adventists are aware that missionary work was actively conducted in China during the first half of the 20th century. Through this conference the history of the church’s mission work in China was brought back to light.

Staff Member Tells Sam Campbell's Story

by Becky St. Clair

In 2011, Terry Dodge, PC support specialist at Andrews University, took his family to Four Mile Lake near Three Lakes, Wisconsin. They paddled a canoe around the island and explored there, an adventure the whole family enjoyed.

The trip was inspired during family worship one evening when Dodge’s daughter asked who Sam Campbell was. It was then that Dodge really began thinking about the bigger picture answer to that question.

“A lot of Adventists know Sam’s name thanks to the Living Forest series he published,” says Dodge. “I think he became popular due to being such a big outdoor enthusiast and promoter. His message of enjoying nature is such a part of the Adventist Church that we easily and fully embraced his perspective of going out in nature and meeting God.”

Though Dodge found and read a book about Campbell’s life by Shandelle Henson, chair of the Department of Mathematics at Andrews University, he was unable to find much more.

“I figured since I enjoy filmmaking, why not tackle this myself?” says Dodge. “I wanted to celebrate Sam’s life and promote his message and invitation to come out to the wilderness, enjoy and preserve.”

An avid photographer since he was a child, Dodge felt there was always something missing in his photography ventures. When he realized what was missing was motion, he enrolled in filmmaking classes, shadowed anyone in the field who would let him tag along, and volunteered anywhere he could to get additional experience.

Today Dodge is only a year away from finishing his film documentary on Sam Campbell, and, alongside writers Steve Yahr and Alison Vilag, is also working on a biography.

Despite the large amount of time Dodge has spent working on these projects, there are still mysteries that surround the story of Sam Campbell. One, for example, is that of his military service.

Though there are records of Campbell’s draft just a few months before WWI ended, as well as his discharge a month to the day after the armistice, most of his records were destroyed in a fire a few years ago.

“We may not have a lot of detail, but there are indications that he did indeed integrate into the life of a military draftee,” says Dodge. “His attire of choice is one example; he liked high-top boots, dark shirts and short, dark khaki breeches. Basically a modified WWI uniform. He also mentions ‘KP duty’ in one of his stories, a military reference to a soldier’s assigned time to work in the kitchen.”

When asked, Dodge listed some of his wishes for putting together Sam’s story: A way to find or get back school records from his early childhood; access to details about his college career; locating Sam’s grandparents’ farm where he spent summers during his childhood; what remains of the things his wife Giny took with her when she moved following his death.

Studying Sam’s life has definitely had its share of perks, though. Dodge describes one of his most memorable experiences while on a trip to gather information.

“I sat on Sam’s pier; the sun had come up and the lake was glass. Duck hunting season started the day before, but no boaters had entered the lake nor had I heard any shots. I just sat there and watched the water and the trees and the sky, and soaked it all up in silence. The lighting was perfect and you could see the trees themselves and the reflections in the water perfectly. It was one of the most peaceful, beautiful moments I’ve experienced, and in that moment I truly began to feel I understood Sam’s deep attachment to this place.”

Dodge has met several individuals who had significant relationships with Sam and Giny, and each has contributed greatly to Dodge’s project. “Research will probably never end on this project,” he says. People continue to come out of the woodwork with stories and information, and Dodge readily admits he’s sure that will continue to happen.

Sam’s message about spending time in nature with God and with people speaks loudly to Dodge. He feels this idea is even more important today than it was back in Sam’s era, and has personally experienced a time when Sam’s writings helped bring healing and focus into a difficult time in his life.

“Life had gotten tough and I had begun to question a lot of things,” recalls Dodge. “I was really discouraged. I have always had a love of nature so I turned to Sam’s writings. There I found encouragement and an urging to go outside and spend more time finding God. That perspective and that positive influence was a huge help through those difficult situations. There’s a spiritual side that Sam brings into his writings. He wants his readers to find that quiet place where God can speak to them. I appreciate that, and I know others have, too.”

Dodge plans to have the documentary film and the biography completed in fall 2015. Regular updates can be found on Dodge’s project website, philosopheroftheforest.com, as well as on his Facebook page, facebook.com/PhilosopherOfTheForest.

The Village SDA Church is praising God for giving us a new Youth Pastor, Pastor Joseph Reeves

Background:
My wife Ruthie and I are glad to have arrived at Village where we will spend our 2nd year in marriage and many more to come. I’ve been in pastoral ministry for the past two and a half years ministering at Detroit Metro and South Lyon churches plus the recent Lakes Area plant. I left my home state of Washington in 2006 when I moved to Wisconsin to work as Bible worker and evangelist. After studying Theology and graduating from Southern Adventist University in 2011, I worked for Southern one year as Bible worker instructor and coordinator for SALT (Soul-winning and Leadership Training). So far, God’s people in Michigan have been a greater blessing to me than I’ve been to them. I expect more good times at Village and am eager to see what God has in store for all. 

Dolores Slikkers Tribute in Holland Paper

Dolores Slikkers was a member of the Andrews University Board of Trustees and a long-time supporter of the University. She was killed in a car accident last month. The below excerpt (full story linked below) is a tribute article published in the Holland (Michigan) Sentinel on Jan. 13.
 

A woman with boundless energy and a heart for helping, Dolores Slikkers’ legacy extends far beyond the Tiara Yachts facility on 40th Street in Holland Township.

Dolores poured her passion for people into every greeting card she sent — more than 2,000 a year — and into every church she helped to build through her ministry.

Dolores, 85, died as a result of a car crash in December.

The wife of S2 Yachts founder Leon Slikkers, Dolores was very much his first mate.

In the weeks since Dolores’ death, Leon, 86, said there has been an outpouring of support from people that she helped.

“She enjoyed life. She really had a passion for helping others. There was just no end to it. I didn’t realize it that much until afterwards,” Leon said. “I knew she was active, but not to that extent.”

The Dowagiac Seventh-day Adventist Church announces plans to provide recovery help for people challenged by harmful habits and addictions.  An introduction to Christ-centered recovery through The Journey to Wholeness 12 Step program will be presented at the church, Saturday, January 17, at 2:00 p.m.  Carrying the message and helping others through such a program will be theme of Ray Nelson's presentation, titled "Whatever It Takes."

Dolores Slikkers Passed Away

On Thursday, Dec. 18, Dolores Slikker, current board member and long-time Andrews supporter, was in a car accident in Holland and was rushed to the hospital, where she passed away.

Dolores was also an honorary degree recipient. In 2007, both Dolores and her husband, Leon, were awarded honorary Doctors of Law for their significant business accomplishments and their philanthropic endeavors. In 1969, the Slikkers, together with John Freeman, established Maranatha Volunteer International, a non-profit Christian organization that mobilizes volunteers to help in communities around the world.

The Slikkers family is well-established at Andrews; they have had family members involved on campus since the 1960s, and are well-known to many.

A Dolores Slikkers Memorial Fund has been set up at Holland Adventist Elementary School. The family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made to this fund.

CARD SHOWER: Members of the Holland SDA Church have started a card shower for Leon Slikkers. Their goal is for Leon to receive 2000 Christmas or New Years cards--the number of birthday cards Dolores sent each year. If you were personally touched by Dolores' life in some way please put a message in the card stating in what way she effected your life. This is a surprise for Leon, so please keep it under wraps.

Cards can be sent to:

Leon Slikkers
A-5228 147th Ave.
Holland, MI 49423

Please remember Dolores’ family and friends as they mourn her loss.

Andrews Introduces Biotechnology Program

Starting fall semester 2015 the Departments of Biology and Chemistry & Biochemistry at Andrews University will offer a joint program in biotechnology. Biotechnology involves the use of living organisms and biological materials in the development of useful products.

One example of biotechnology is the production of human insulin by genetically engineered bacteria, developed by Genentech in 1982, something many diabetics benefit from to this day.

“Over the last 10–20 years, particularly since the development of DNA sequencing technologies, the biotechnology industry has grown dramatically,” says Peter Lyons, assistant  professor of biology. “There is a great need for people trained in the techniques of biotechnology, as well as other skills such as communication and teamwork that are necessary to do science well.”

The biotechnology faculty will consist of a mix of professors, representing the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering and Agriculture. Their goals for the program are to produce professionals who have not only knowledge in the field of biotechnology but also skills in communication, technology, interdisciplinary teamwork and ethical use of biotechnology information and techniques.

“Here at Andrews we have the benefit of a strong culture of research and a wide spectrum of academic interests,” says Lyons. “This program will be unique in its interdisciplinary nature and its clear aim to develop practical skills that can be applied in the job setting.”

Five Questions With... Rich Aguilera

Rich Aguilera was a successful architect when he decided to make a change.

The Andrews University graduate, who now lives in Niles, realized that working in the architecture industry was just a career, while his real passion was serving as youth director at church and with children's ministries. So in 2008, he closed his architecture practice and opened One Mustard Seed, a ministry that finds fun, creative ways to explore nature and the biblical creation story.

Aguilera, "The Mud Guy" from Guide Magazine and 3ABN's "Kids' Time," travels the world looking for evidence of creation and sharing his discoveries with kids and adults in his columns, books and speaking engagements. His latest interactive presentation, called "HIS Creation," takes place Saturday as part of Andrews University's Howard Center Presents Series at the Howard Performing Arts Center.

Andrews Web Re-Engineering Project

We are rebuilding the Andrews website from the ground up and we want your feedback. For several months now, the campus Web Committee has been discussing and prioritizing how to best implement an overall update to the Andrews website. This significant update would represent a variety of benefits to everyone involved at Andrews, and its most direct mission would be to make the web experience a more engaging one, especially for future students to help improve our overall enrollment, as well as our campus community.

The provost has asked Integrated Marketing & Communication to spearhead the Web Re-Engineering project (working closely with Information Technology Services and other offices). Work began late last semester, and we are now hosting a set of town hall meetings in early January to both 1) inform the Andrews community about some of the details and specifics of the project (priorities, timeline, scope), and 2) receive valuable feedback from you as our campus community on the direction and alternatives for our website as it is reengineered.

Please join us for one of our town hall meetings to get involved; all take place in the Whirlpool Room in Chan Shun Hall (School of Business Administration):

  • Monday, Jan. 12, 3:30–5 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Jan. 13, 6–7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2–3:30 p.m.

Serving the World's Cities: An Andrews University Response

Cities have been interwoven in human experience from the beginning of time. Some will argue that humans prefer the gentle pastoral beauty and pace of life familiar to uncrowded rural settings, but the reality tells us otherwise. For whatever reason, we gather in cities. Today’s cities are larger, more creative, diverse and global than ever. In the mid-19th century less than 10 percent of the world’s population lived in a metropolis of 100,000 or more. By 1900 the urban population in the world had increased to 14 percent. Today, 60 percent of the human population is in the city, and in developed nations like Canada and America it is an astounding 75 percent. And the pace of migration to urban life is quickening. Today’s cities are the center of power, culture, economy and spirituality.

Christians bring their influence into the life of the city as they live there, work there, play there and socialize there. Most young adults leaving our colleges and universities establish careers in one of our world’s urban centers. They need support as they bring the presence of Christ into those cultures.

Recognizing this challenge, the Andrews University Doctor of Ministry program offers an Urban Ministry Concentration. The next cohort in this concentration will begin in March 2015 in Chicago. Skip Bell, professor of Christian leadership, leads the concentration.

Four Alumni Build Company

Founded by four alumni of Andrews University, Galileo’s mission is to create UAV systems that enhance human life and help solve critical health, logistics, security, and entertainment challenges.

The team realized that both professionals and consumers desire to interact with drones but are commonly faced with complexities that limit their use of the technology. Galileo is pushing to change this reality with their motto: “Personality to make it yours. Apps to make it powerful. Hardware to make it happen.”

Galileo will launch the first of its two models, the Alpha, through crowdfunding in 2015. The Alpha will be designed for personal use with a simplicity tailored for the mass market.

Berrien Springs Camera Club Jan. Meeting

 The Berrien Springs Camera Club will meet on Wed., Jan. 7, at 7 p.m. in the Berrien Springs Community Library at Cass and Union. The program will be an inwardly focused one, trying to improve the images submitted for the club’s competitions every other month.

            One of the stated goals of the club is to help members improve their photographic skills. Three judges from outside come to judge the competitions, and members often wonder why a particular photo was rejected, or given fewer points than anticipated, or perhaps given an “honor” status. On the other hand, it is well recognized that judging art is very subjective. Most club members have had the experience of later resubmitting a rejected image and having it win honors.

            In January three artists/photographers will critique pictures and give reasons for how they would judge them if this were a competition. Members will join in and offer their observations and suggestions, too.

            Nathan Greene, world-renowned painter who lives and works locally, will be one of the judges. Another will be Breanna Bell, a Michiana photographer specializing in seniors, families, and babies. The third will be Emmanuel St. Cloud, a Berrien Springs photographer who specializes in events, portraits, and weddings.

            Each member may submit five images ahead for this critiquing session. Submission guidelines are on the club’s blog site:  http://berrienspringscameraclub.blogspot.com/

            All are welcome. Refreshments will be served.
