Dedicating Heart and Mind to God
It is the mission of Corban University to educate Christians who will make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ. The Hebrew word for corban (qorban) represents the highest gift given to God. “In view of God's mercy…offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—which is your spiritual worship” Romans 12:1 (NIV). Our students are trained to become leaders who are set apart for a life of spiritual sacrifice and service, able to advance as salt and light in a darkened world.

WHY HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT MATTERS In our latest regional accreditation report we clearly stated: “Corban is committed to creating a community that promotes worship, creative expression and activities that reflect God’s character. Development of all aspects of the created person is essential to enabling students to fully express themselves as people created in the image of God. A holistic approach encourages physical and emotional health as well as well-developed spiritual life and deep social relationships. Engagement and intentional strategies for collaborating with others are used to equip and enhance interpersonal and intrapersonal awareness.” As you can ascertain from this statement, Corban University is an academic community that bases its existence on the concept of ministry through the application of the Great Commission. That commission, in Matthew 28: 19-20, says: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you … ” This means we want each of our graduates to be recognized by all as Corban men and women who have a heart and mind truly dedicated to the Lord. Unfortunately, this is not the situation at many so-called Christian institutions. What’s more, this is not a new problem with such institutions. Martin Luther addressed this same problem centuries ago when he stated:
common bond in Jesus Christ, and it is why we require all of our students to be Christians. We also provide opportunities for our students to be involved in the arts from a Christian perspective. We know that young people are greatly influenced by what they watch in movies and on television, what they hear in songs and on talk radio, what they see in print and experience online. Therefore, they need to understand how to incorporate what’s actually true and right into their belief system, and how to reject what’s false and wrong. Furthermore, it’s essential that they grow to a point in their spiritual life where they can bless others wherever they go. We do not consider some areas of our students’ lives as secular and some as spiritual. We certainly do not want them to compartmentalize that way. Instead, we want them to consider everything in their lives as a spiritual and ultimately biblical issue. We want them to keep growing in the spirit of Proverbs 1:1-4, which says: “The Proverbs of Solomon son of David, King of Israel: for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight; for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young.”
We do not consider some areas of our students’ lives as secular and some as spiritual.
“I am afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of Hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must be corrupt.” On the surface, these words seem overly harsh, but Luther wanted us to realize we are in a fierce battle for the hearts and minds of our young people. The apostle Paul, in Ephesians 6:12, clearly states: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” At Corban, we prepare our students to think biblically about, and develop a holistic approach to, each issue of life. Toward that end, we encourage them to be actively involved in the Corban community and with others in order to develop their social skills and firm up their personal commitment to Jesus Christ. That is why it is so very important to have a community that shares a strong
We want our students, and our faculty, to internalize the Bible’s principles in their hearts so they’re prepared to face each issue in life from the point of view of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. That is why our mission, “To educate Christians who will make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ,” is central to the existence of Corban University. Every decision we make as an institution is centered on that all-important mission.
As you look through this issue of our magazine, you will see how we seek to develop a holistic life attitude in our students. It is a genuine blessing to be part of this great endeavor, and to know that you and other supporters are with us. Thank you so very much. Dedicating Heart and Mind to God,
Reno Hoff, President

“Elizabeth Madox Roberts: Prospect and Retrospect”
“Understanding, Managing & Redeeming Church Conflict”
“Creating Disciple Making Movements”
Lyndsey (Hawk) Brown, ’07
By Leroy Goertzen, D.Min., Director, Doctor of Ministry Program, Corban School of Ministry
By Paul Johnson, D.Min., Assistant Professor of Intercultural Studies and Bible, Corban University
When 38 percent of pastors and 72 percent of members have left their churches due to conflict, it isn’t surprising that nearly 15,000 churches per year divide or dissolve because of unresolved internal conflict.
In his new book, “Creating Disciple Making Movements,” Paul Johnson, D.Min., an assistant professor of intercultural studies and Bible, explores Jesus Christ’s mission to create holistic disciples.
Though her work had largely been discounted by critics since the 1960s, early 20th century poet and novelist Elizabeth Madox Roberts is being rediscovered. Research and review of the Kentucky-born writer’s work by Corban alumna Lyndsey (Hawk) Brown, ’07, was published in “Elizabeth Madox Roberts: Prospect and Retrospect” in spring 2012. The book is one of four in the “Reading Roberts” series, and is a compellation of Robert’s unpublished work and critical essays about her poems and novels. Brown’s essay “Transcendent Items: Ellen’s Journey,” is a critique of one of Roberts’ early novels “The Time of Man,” written in 1926. In her essay, Brown examines the contents of a hope chest owned by Ellen, the book’s main character. It describes how they were a reflection of “Ellen’s journey of the self.” Brown is currently an adjunct professor at Georgia Southern University, and hopes to present her research about Roberts to other literary scholars and enthusiasts. “Elizabeth Madox Roberts: Prospect and Retrospect” is available for $20, payable to: “Tina Iraca,” EMRS Treasurer, 16 Montgomery St. Tivoli, NY 12583.
Leroy Goertzen, D.Min., director of Corban’s Doctor of Ministry Program, tackled this serious issue in his book “Understanding, Managing & Redeeming Church Conflict.” Goertzen shows why church conflict is inevitable, and he provides a framework for understanding how conflict can be managed, resolved and redeemed with an informed plan and sound biblical principles. “Church ministry leaders will be pleased to know this book is not a self-help book based on the most recent pop-psychology,” Goertzen said. “Rather, the book engages the reader with some of the best research in the field of conflict management with a Christian perspective.” “Understanding, Managing & Redeeming Church Conflict” is available through any major online book retailer.
“Along with biblical analysis, this research presents four stellar examples from church history of groups or individuals who pursued the fulfillment of the mission of Christ through the making of holistic disciples and, to some degree, disciplemaking movements,” Johnson said. “As obedient followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, it is vital to understand how Christ defined his mission for his followers in the world.” The book also provides insight into effective methods to create disciple-making movements within the church, examines the work and perspectives of key contemporary writers on the missional church and how they describe the mission of Jesus Christ in the world today. “Creating Disciple Making Movements” is available through any major online book retailer.
“Understanding Differences in Perceptions of Effective Urban Elementary School Principals among Various Educational Stakeholders” By Jesse Payne, Ed.D., Assistant Professor of Education Corban University Perceptions can shape the way teachers and administrators view their roles in education. Corban University Assistant Professor of Education, Jesse Payne, Ed.D., addresses this in his new book, “Understanding Differences in Perceptions of Effective Urban Elementary School Principals among Various Educational Stakeholders.” His research focused on the similarities and differences in perceptions of job skills for effective elementary school principals in urban areas. After collecting data from 51 school superintendents, 114 principals and 101 teachers, he discovered the differences in perception far outweighed the similarities, even within similar stakeholder groups. Payne is currently working on a book titled “Teachers as Brain Changers.” He also published “What I Learned from a Penguin: A Story on How to Help People Change,” which was created to help children understand their own brains and personalities. “Understanding Differences in Perceptions…” is available through any major online book retailer, including Amazon.
Associate Professor Ryan Stark
Professor Jim Hills
SABBATICAL IS NO BREAK FOR CORBAN PROFESSOR
ENGLISH PROFESSOR’S ESSAY PUBLISHED IN COLLECTION
While Corban Professor of Humanities Jim Hills might not be in the classroom during his fall 2012 sabbatical, he isn’t taking the time off.
With a dash of satire and humor, Corban Associate Professor of English Ryan Stark analyzed the 18th century novel, “Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Stern, for a newly released book of essays.
From publishing short magazine articles to writing content for a textbook he has been researching, Hills is clearing his to-do list of writing projects that have been accumulating for several years. “I’m primarily working on a simplified American history text for international students,” he said. “I spent a summer teaching in Indonesia and it made me realize how little I knew about Indonesian society and history. When we started getting Indonesian students here, I thought, ‘Why would they know any more about my culture than I knew about theirs?’” After conversations with some of Corban’s international students and additional conversations during a trip to England, Hills started the research process. His goal is to create an easy-to-understand text that explains not only key components of U.S. history, but also why Americans have the unique values they do such as rugged individualism and freedom of speech. “We really are different and it has to do with a large number of things,” Hills said. While working on the history textbook, he also helped a Salem-area writer bring an idea to print. Additionally he wrote several articles for Regular Baptist Press and prepared a new course he taught at AMBEX in Germany in November. It hasn’t been all work and no play for the professor who started at Corban in 1973. He is spending more time with his daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren in Bend, Ore., which he said has been a “huge blessing.” He will return to the classroom in January 2013 for spring semester.
His article, “Tristram Shandy and the Devil” was published in “Theology and Literature in the Age of Johnson.” Stark said it was an essay he enjoyed writing. “I show that Laurence Sterne, one of the great satire writers of the 18th century and an Anglican priest, lampoons the Devil in wonderfully inventive ways throughout the novel,” he said. “In it I contend that “Tristram Shandy” is an informal exorcism ritual designed, successfully, to laugh away the foul fiend, the proud spirit who cannot endure to be mocked.” The book is available in print and electronic formats through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other book retailers.
WRITER-IN-RESIDENCE BUSY GLOBALLY AND LOCALLY After nearly eight years of research and writing, Corban’s Flannery O’Conner Award-winning Writer-in-Residence, Gina Ochsner, recently completed her latest novel. The book, tentatively titled “Thicker than Water,” focuses on a community of ethnic Latvians, Jews, Russians and Gypsies who live in relative peace in the post-Soviet Union era. When a German developer repurposes the local cemetery for the site of a riverside strip mall, however, conflict ensues. Through this, Ochsner said the Latvian myth of the Bear Slayer, a hero with enormous furry ears that destroys anyone trying to occupy the nation, is brought to life through the characters.
“It’s a story of internal struggle,” she said. “The wounds of the three occupations between 1940 and 1991 are brought out. It dredges up a painful, shameful history of Latvian occupation.” Ochsner researched Latvia’s history through online research, personal interviews conducted during five trips to Latvia, and the help of several colleagues across the United States. She said the book is currently being considered by a publisher. In December, Ochsner plans to travel to Perm State University (PSU) in eastern Russia. She was invited to talk about her debut novel, “The Russian Dreambook of Color and Flight,” with scholars and others from that university. While there, she intends to build relationships with PSU faculty in hopes of establishing scholarly exchanges between PSU and Corban. Additionally, she plans to work with Russian street kids through Youth With A Mission (YWAM). With the successful June 2012 Portals Writers Conference behind her, Ochsner already is making preparations for the second annual Portals Writers Conference, June 20-23, 2013. The 4-day conference will include writing workshops, evening presentations, and one-onone sessions with writing mentors. Confirmed presenters include authors Paula Houston and Deborah Smith Douglas, photographer Fritz Liedtke, and slam poet Phil Long.
IMAGINATIONS THRIVE AT iTHINK–iCREATE THEATRE CAMP From sci-fi to fantasy to mad scientists, Corban’s 2012 iThink–iCreate Theatre Camp was a collage of ideas and fun. For two weeks in July, the University’s Psalm Performing Arts Center and other campus locations bustled with 40 camp participants representing students from the fourth to 12th grades.
iThink–iCreate Theatre Camp
“This group threw themselves wholeheartedly into the theatrical process, which makes for an energetic and productive two weeks,” said Camp Director Tamara McGinnis. “The sketches, the scenes and the acts that the students wrote were incredibly imaginative and creative. “In a discussion about what it took to be an artist, I was struck by the depth of their responses: hard work, empathy, discipline, perseverance, observation skills, vulnerability, risk,” she added. The elementary, middle and high school students developed their own scripts, costumed their characters, planned their blocking, and practiced their songs and dances. Additionally, the students attended seminars covering improvisation techniques, character development, voice projection, stage emotions, and backdrop and props creation. The camp concluded with participants performing their three original shows in front of family and friends. McGinnis is already preparing for next summer’s camp scheduled from July 22 through Aug. 3, 2013. For more information, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Jan Hopkins at 503-375-7018.
ENGLISH PROFESSOR’S POETRY WINS ACCOLADES Colette Tennant won second place in the national poetry contest, Winners’ Circle Award, for her poem “Ritual,” which will be published in the annual journal “Encore.” “Gold Man Review,” Salem, Oregon’s own literary magazine, has accepted two of Tennant’s poems for its next issue.
Professor Colette Tennant
Tennant was also one of the featured authors in the September/October 2012 issue of the Statesman Journal’s magazine “Willamette Woman.”
CORBAN PROFESSOR PROMOTES MISSIONS Paul Johnson recently spoke at Mission Fest Seattle on the topics “Mobilizing the Next Generation in Cross-Cultural Missions” and “How to Discover God’s ‘Call’ to Cross-Cultural Ministry.” In September, Johnson also traveled to the Evangelical Missiological Society annual meeting in Chicago, and became a member of a team involved in the initial development of an Intercultural Servant-in-Residence program at Corban.
CORBAN EDUCATION MAJORS BENEFIT FROM GRANT A $36,000 grant to the Salem-Keizer School District is having a direct impact on Corban’s education majors. The nonprofit Oregon Chalkboard Project awarded the grant to give education majors “a robust pipeline that takes teaching candidates through a rigorous classroom experience,” said Sue Hildick, Chalkboard project president, in a “Statesman Journal” story about the grant. Corban’s education majors will have the opportunity to learn at three of the five schools selected for the project. This includes the new Chavez Elementary in East Salem, which is the district’s first “learning lab.” The school features eight classrooms with one-way windows to allow student teachers, district supervisors and others to watch demonstration teachers at work.

extended clinical placement for their studentteaching experience,” said Janine Allen, Corban’s dean of education and counseling. “This will allow a full-year experience in one building instead of changing buildings after an initial student teaching experience.” Additionally, the grant gives Corban teacher candidates working toward their English as a Second Language (ESOL) endorsement, and secondary school candidates, the ability to work more closely within an intercultural environment. Students began the collaborative and student teaching portions of the education major on Aug. 27. Approximately 25 percent of Corban’s education students are directly involved with the Salem-Keizer Collaborative classroom placements with 52 teacher candidates in student teaching or preeducation field experiences during the 20122013 school year. The purpose of the Salem-Keizer Collaborative is to provide a growth opportunity for clinical teachers and teacher candidates through indepth clinical placements. The collaboration was developed over 18 months, and is designed to improve student achievement through enhanced student learning and teaching quality. “This aligns with the goals of Corban University’s School of Education to create teacher leaders passionate for engaged service and for leading transformation in their learning communities,” Allen said. “At the end of the day, it is all about student learning and making a difference.”
“Teacher candidates from Corban University’s elementary education program will be in an
News briefs GREAT BRITAIN TOUR COMING UP MAY 2013 Between May 5 and 23, 2013, as many as 40 Corban students, alumni, parents, family and friends are going to explore the United Kingdom and learn more about its influence on their lives. The Great Britain Academic Tour includes 16 days of sightseeing. A luxury motor coach will transport participants as they travel through England and Scotland, to enjoy the sights—and glean insights from an English literature scholar, a Christian history and theology scholar, and a spiritual formation and Bible scholar, all from Corban University. “This trip allows participants to engage in a historical, literary, theological, and spiritual connection with our English heritage,” says tour guide Sam Baker, Corban’s associate professor of student and family
ministries. “Participants will be able to connect with Great Britain in a fully integrated way.” The trip will be led by Baker, by English and Humanities Professor Colette Tennant, and by Associate Professor of Ministry Kent Kersey. The trip will cost $4,500 per person, which includes airfare, 17 nights lodging, entrance fees, and a number of meals. “In many respects, even a relatively short trip like this can have lifetransforming effects,” Baker said. “It’s a unique opportunity everyone should seriously consider.” For more information about the Great Britain Academic Tour, contact Sam Baker at 503-316-3387 or email him at email@example.com.
CORBAN SENIOR RECEIVES NATIONAL POETRY AWARD Corban University senior Andrew Tennant earned this year’s prestigious Edna Meudt Memorial Award from the National Federation of State Poetry Societies. His award-winning poem, “Longing for Affliction,” was part of a 10-poem collection sent for review by a panel of three NFSPS judges. The award included a Salem campus visit by Oregon’s Poet Laureate Paulann Petersen, who led a poetry workshop attended by individuals from the Corban community and greater Salem area. Additionally, Petersen led an evening lecture with Andrew Tennant. Students filled the Psalm Performing Arts Center to hear Petersen share her creative journey and listen to Tennant read from his newly published chapbook, “Where You See Angels All Over.” “Corban is a wonderful place to foster a love of poetry,” Petersen said. “There is so much talent within the faculty and students. I really am looking forward to coming back.”
CORBAN AND UPH EXTEND PARTNERSHIP FOR FOUR MORE YEARS This fall, Corban University administrators signed an extended partnership with Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH), in Karawaci, Indonesia, that will continue to advance Christian education throughout the world’s fourth most populous nation. Corban has a unique partnership with UPH and its Teachers College. Education majors from the Teachers College receive an accredited Corban University degree once they complete the program. Upon graduation, these new teachers
fill classroom positions at Christian schools in many of Indonesia’s most impoverished regions. Graduates of Corban’s School of Education are also given the opportunity to work at schools established by the Pelita Harapan Foundation, the parent organization for the network of schools. A number of Corban alumni now teach in Indonesia. A liaison officer will travel between Corban and the Teachers College, and work closely with Corban Provost Matt Lucas to track student progress
and ensure each student meets the rigorous accreditation requirements. Additionally, the liaison officer will continue to build relationships between, and pursue opportunities for, faculty and students at both universities. “The new memorandum of understanding is evidence that the good work by Dr. Lucas and Dr. Janine Allen is appreciated and valued by our UPH colleagues,” said Corban President elect Sheldon Nord. Corban President Reno Hoff, called it another example of how a mission can be fulfilled when God is in control. “Corban University will continue to realize our mission through teacher education in Indonesia and expand those efforts across all of Asia,” Hoff said. “All of the credit goes to Jesus Christ for these collaborative opportunities.” The new agreement will take effect July 1, 2013 and run through 2017.

RETIRED KATU ANCHOR SPEAKS AT LUNCHEON This autumn, Salem area business and community leaders received a history lesson covering about four decades of television news and the importance of community partnerships. Retired KATU television news journalist and anchor Mike Donahue spoke to a capacity crowd at Broadway Commons in Salem, Ore. as part of the 2012 Corban Consulting Partners (CCP) luncheon. The annual event is designed to inform community and business leaders about the opportunities available through CCP and the Corban University School of Business. “The big idea is to bloom where you are planted,” Donahue said. “Corban University is blooming where it was planted. It has broken down the imaginary wall that separates its students from the community. It’s reaching out with open arms and asking you to join it in becoming a strong part of this community.” As a result of the luncheon, the School of Business received nearly 40 responses from prospective CCP clients, those looking for business interns, and others interested in attending or sponsoring future business workshops.

It also gives us another opportunity to fulfill Corban’s mission statement, and that truly is exciting to me.”
NEW STUDENTS ARRIVE FOR ORIENTATION
On Aug. 24, Corban University’s Salem campus was abuzz with new students ready to begin their college careers and with new parents helping port clothes, computers and even refrigerators into their sons’ and daughters’ new school-year homes.
With warm September sunshine all around them for Parent Weekend, Ramsey and Kay Siobal from Waipahu, Hawaii enjoyed laughs, meals and memories with their daughter, Kaylyn, on Corban’s 142-acre campus in Salem, Ore.
This year, Corban has nearly 550 students, divided roughly 2:1 women/men, living in five residence halls on campus. Corban’s orientation weekend kicked off with residence hall registration, a barbecue and a parent dessert. Throughout the weekend, new students became acquainted with their roommates and residence leaders, met professors, and attended various workshops. The orientation weekend ended Aug. 27 with an evening scavenger hunt that scattered students throughout downtown Salem. Students got to know Oregon’s capital city and its many stores and boutique shops.
The Siobals made the journey from their island state to take part in the familycentric activities, Sept. 28-29. The annual event attracts parents who want to share a weekend with their children enrolled at the University. “By going to chapel, classes and other events, it makes the parents feel comfortable with their decision to send their child to Corban,” said Parent Weekend organizer Cathy Downs. “Our
goal is to really let parents know they made the right decision.” The Siobal family took part in a dinner and brunch, had a family photo taken, and attended classes and a soccer match before returning home on Saturday. “We had a great time and learned a lot,” said Ramsey Siobal. “The weather was great. I really didn’t miss home at all.” Parent Weekend is typically scheduled for the first weekend in November. This year, however, scheduling conflicts required a change. Downs said she would like to see it return to the later date next year.

Holistic Development Why dedicating heart and mind to God now is more important than ever
“I am so proud of you!”
rarely is said aloud. Then again, sometimes we can’t help it. Why? Over time we sense what Dr. Reno Hoff calls “the Corban difference” taking root, growing and coming to fruition in the hearts and lives of our students. We can see it in their facial expressions, demeanors and poise. We can hear it in their voices in the classroom, dining hall, gymnasium, athletic field, performing arts center and elsewhere on campus.
Your video was a hit! I got many compliments after the program and I’m still receiving compliments on it today! I think you may have been a bit modest in that not everyone made the connection that you produced it! Hmmm… I’m trying to figure out how to fix that.
During the past three years, Jessica has produced a number of outstanding videos for the University, both informative and fun. As well, she has created two acclaimed videos showing proven ways to address key social concerns in the broader community in Oregon’s capital city. Only a few months from commencement, Corban faculty and administrators are eager to serve as Jessica’s references.
The University should be proud! Tony Frazier
Why? They’re delighted that she’s already “making a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.” So, what makes “the Corban difference” a reality? At Corban, we call it holistic development. It’s the second of our University’s three major themes. Day in and day out, Corban stands committed to creating a community that promotes worship, creative expression and activities that reflect God’s character. To do this effectively, Corban actively promotes development of all aspects of the
How does holistic development work? At Corban, we actively pursue five objectives in order to create and foster holistic development in our students. 1. Campus Involvement Students engage in campus life to foster community vitality. 2. Artistic Engagement Students demonstrate an appreciation for, and participate in, the performing/visual arts. 3. Christian Growth Students develop and grow in their spiritual life. 4. Interpersonal Relationships Students develop healthy relationships that enable them to bless others. 5. Personal Wellness Students cultivate a healthy lifestyle.
nly a few weeks ago, we received a wonderful note from alumnus Tony Frazier, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of the MidWillamette Valley. One of our seniors, Jessica Baughman, had volunteered to create an inspiring, professional-quality video for Habitat’s annual fundraiser. Business and ministry leaders alike applauded the video as “remarkably better” than what they’d seen at other fundraisers. Then again, we weren’t surprised.
created person. This is essential to enable students like Jessica to grow and mature and fully express themselves as individuals created in the image of God. This holistic approach with each Corban student encourages: physical health emotional health a well-developed spiritual life deep social relationships The exciting thing? This works!
1. Kate Tracy doesn’t know everyone at Corban. It just seems that way. This senior English major serves as the editor of the national award-winning “Hilltop News” student newspaper. She also serves as a Resident Assistant (RA) at Prewitt Hall. On top of that, she attends Church on the Hill, works part-time in the Office of Admissions, and has an internship. Kate’s vibrancy carries over into her work at her residence hall. “I love all aspects of being an RA and I help foster relationships with my girls through one-on-ones, sectionals, group events, and dorm-wide events. Bible study every week is my favorite thing. Also, I love being spontaneous.” Kate’s winsomeness is also evident in her work as the student newspaper editor. “The ‘Hilltop News’ is not an outlet for whining but a publication that is trying to pursue truth and excellence. Instead of critiquing administration, I’d rather focus on what students can do to improve their college experience. That means writing entertaining, interesting, challenging and thought-provoking articles.” Not everyone at Corban knows Kate. But many feel a debt of gratitude for all she does to foster a strong sense of community within our University.
2. Kirstie Walrath and Hayley Dawson grew up only a few miles east of the picturesque Corban School of Ministry campus overlooking Commencement Bay in Tacoma, Wash. The girls performed with the same community theater group. They chose to enroll in the same private Christian university in Salem, Ore. They were a year apart, however, so it wasn’t until well into this past year before Hayley and Kirstie met for the first time. When they did meet, Kirstie and Hayley were standing in Corban’s dining hall. Immediately they both decided, “Let’s have
lunch together!” After sitting down, they soon started talking about the future, not the past. “So, what do you want to do this summer?” Thanks to God’s sovereignty hand, they discovered they both wanted to combine their passion for theater with a powerful response that addressed the evils of human sex trafficking. “A few months earlier I remember thinking, ‘This issue is so big. There is nothing realistic that I can do,’” Hayley said. “So, when Kirstie first mentioned what she wanted to do, I got chills all over my body. I remember being so excited and feeling, ‘There is a way!’”
The answer to “How can we do this?” started taking shape over the next few weeks. Other Christian students from the Bonnie Lake and Sumner area joined their team. So did several parents. The end result? A new name and vision for the theater ministry at Kirstie’s home church. A brand-new show called “Freedom from the Night.” One incredible night performing and filming that show. Another night performing the show as part of Rick Warren’s “Celebrate Recovery” conference in their area. “Our 20-minute performance of dance, mime and a couple of monologues brought our audiences through the story of a girl drawn into a life of sex trafficking,” Kirstie said. “It was heartbreaking, but we were also saying there is hope. At the end, the main victim, as well as the other used and broken girls, rip the chains off their wrists… Ultimately, our show is meant to turn the eyes of our watchers upon the grace and mercy of God.” Now, that same show is posted on YouTube. Hayley and Kirstie’s new dream? For other Christian theater groups to stage “Freedom from the Night” all across America. 13
3. Steffan Bard may not be a senior yet, but don’t tell anyone. This Interdisciplinary Studies major is an avid reader and thinker, spiritual life blogger, workshop presenter, and occasional contributor to the “Hilltop News” student newspaper. He also trains, travels and competes as part of Corban’s soccer team. Prof. Ryan Stark is one of Steffan’s most enthusiastic fans. “He’s a really great philosophy student and wrote a ‘Screwtape’ letter modeled on C. S. Lewis’ book by the same name. It’s a provocative piece about how the Devil might tempt students at a Christian school.” Actually, some of Steffan’s biggest temptations took place before he arrived at Corban. “One of my struggles was overcoming my bent toward perfectionism.” That bent battered his faith and emotions. Thankfully, his three years at Corban have provided an environment where Steffan can ask tough questions, wrestle with big doubts, discover God’s wisdom, and share those biblical and theological insights with others. Some of those insights are shared in conversation, of course, but Steffan ends up writing and publishing a number of them. The next Corban book author? No, that’s not the point. Instead, Steffan is focused on asking and exploring the right questions in an environment that’s biblical and theologically rock-solid. And, he’s developing a rich, deep spirituality he wants to continue cultivating for a lifetime. 14
4. Travis Noble knows a bit about what it takes to develop healthy relationships. He doesn’t just have a lot of friends at Corban, especially within the Business Management degree program. Travis also has been a Nike employee for five years and is married to Bella, a fellow Corban student. On top of all that, in May, Travis traveled to Indonesia for a University-sponsored business study tour and this September he signed up to work with Salem-area pastors on Corban’s behalf as a “My Hope with Billy Graham” student intern. In his spare time? Travis is active in his home church. He also loves basketball and uses it as a vehicle for bringing friends back to the Lord and encouraging them to keep growing as followers of Jesus Christ. What else? Travis can’t wait to start his MBA degree program and has been tirelessly working on entrepreneurship projects with a few Corban classmates. “When it comes to developing healthy relationships that enable me to bless others, I don’t want to take any credit,” Travis said. “Obviously, it’s all to God. I definitely believe He has blessed me with the ability to relate to a lot of people.”
5. Alana Avila wants to invest her ministry career helping teen girls overcome unhealthy lifestyle choices, habits and addictions. Then again, Alana doesn’t take her own healthy lifestyle patterns for granted. She still remembers when her mother trusted the Lord when Alana was 7 years old. “God changed the entire trajectory of our lives,” Alana said. When it came time to choose a university, Alana didn’t have to guess what her priorities were. In God’s providence, Alana enrolled at Corban University. “I so appreciate the supportive relationships here,” she said. “In chapel, in dorm meetings, and in other contexts, I’m being supported, encouraged and built up emotionally and spiritually.” She also has enjoyed Corban’s emphasis on quality physical education, fitness and nutrition. This December, Alana can’t wait to graduate and start her first career job right after finals. She’ll be working in Independence, Missouri at Shelterwood Therapeutic School for Teens. According to Shelterwood’s Admissions Coordinator, Greg Stone, “We are excited Alana is joining our team and are confident God will minister to her and through her this coming year. She brings both passion and maturity to our ministry.”
That passion and maturity have been infused during Alana’s years at Corban, according to one of her professors, Dr. Sam Baker. “As a Student and Family Ministries major, Alana has been provided the tools for constructing and sustaining a productive ministry. We also have provided rich training in her field (of) education and hands-on experiences via her practicum and internship proficiencies.” But that’s not all. “The theoretical, integrative, and practical aspects of Alana’s training,” Baker added, “should help her make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.”
So, does holistic development really work? Just ask Alana and other Corban upperclassmen. At every turn, they have seen God at work in and through them. Their lives have been changed and they have grown more and more into the likeness of Jesus Christ. How long has it been since you have “given back” to Corban? Recently? Not for quite some time? Either way, we encourage you to consider making a donation to the University’s student scholarship fund between now and the year’s end.
Then again, such positive growth and fruit should come as no surprise. After all, isn’t that why Corban is here year after year?
If you contribute a gift, please send it with a prayer for the student who will receive it. Then get ready to see “the Corban difference” shine more vibrantly than ever this winter and spring! See “Total Personal Growth” on pg. 34
What We Learn from Elijah’s Life God Cares about the Whole Person
Except for the Lord Jesus Christ, no biblical character shows more courage than Elijah. After the glory days of King Solomon, God raised up the prophet to confront the immense wickedness, gross idolatry and rampant paganism that had consumed the nation of Israel. When things don’t work out as planned and when wicked queen Jezebel threatens his life, however, Elijah proves he’s “a man just like us” (James 5:17). Instead of crying out to the Lord in prayer, the once-courageous but now confused and despairing prophet high-tails it into the desert of Beersheba. It isn’t until he collapses under a desert tree that the prophet finally remembers to pray. And what a prayer it is! “God, I’ve had enough. Take my life! I feel like dying.” The truth is, we’re no different from Elijah. We share the same DNA.
It’s critical that we see how God responds to Elijah at his moment of greatest discouragement and despair. Does God strike him down? No, of course not. Instead, God ministers to Elijah, cares for him, and puts him back on his feet. Back on his feet, Elijah heads north out of the desert of Beersheba and onto
the pages of Scripture as one of the greatest spiritual heroes of all time (see 1 Kings 17-19). Because Elijah was “a man just like us,” we can learn a great lesson. No matter how confused or despairing we become, we can turn to God, trusting the Lord to meet all of our needs—at every level of our being.
Physically, God provides much-needed food and rest.
Spiritually, God exhorts Elijah to keep on following him.
Emotionally, God allows Elijah to sense his presence.
Socially, God tells Elijah about 7,000 other faith-filled men.
ADP Fall 2012 Cohort trades textbooks for pre-loaded iPads T hanks to opportunities for more interaction with their professors, and the ease of having everything in one place, students in Corban’s Adult Degree Programs (ADP) are happy. So is the ADP staff.
This fall, two cohorts of ADP students from across the country received iPads preloaded with all of their syllabi, textbooks and a direct link to Corban’s Converge online education portal. The 10-inch iPads offer significant long-term savings to the university. Digital textbooks cost less than printed ones. Faculty can more easily use Corban-developed curriculum as well. For Organizational Leadership Chairman Bruce Merritt, one of the biggest advantages is FaceTime, an Apple-developed app that allows students and faculty to connect to each other through live video chats. “This really has the potential to make face-toface interactions between faculty and students much easier than it has ever been in the past,” Merritt said. Coast Guard Second Class Petty Officer Brian Greig is stationed in North Carolina, but he said he’s able to keep connected with Corban week in and week out. “The iPad is one of the best tools a school has ever given me to use,” he said. “It is a portable school campus for me. All the resources are in one 16
easy convenient location. I don’t have to lug around several books, papers, and then a computer when I travel for work, which is a lot in my case.”
In the past, textbooks and curriculum were mailed to students. International students often had trouble receiving the packages or returning the books once the semester was complete. Now, iPads make education easier for everyone. More importantly, according to ADP Dean Nancy Martyn, stronger relationships are fostered. “I think this personalizes the experience,” she said. “It’s a work in progress, but it will be very interesting to see how this will continue to develop.”
SCHOOL OF MINISTRY MINISTERS IN THE HEART OF AFRICA With a population of 20.5 million people, the sub-Saharan nation of Cameroon is short on crops, clean water, infrastructure and other basic necessities. The Dean of the Corban University School of Ministry, Greg Trull, said these needs pale, however, in comparison to the nation’s leadership needs. Cameroon rarely makes it into the news, especially compared to some much more populous African countries. Educators have long called it “Africa in miniature,” however, because of its central location, cultural diversity (hundreds of people groups), and full spectrum of climates, vegetation and geography (ocean beaches, deserts, mountains, rainforests, rivers, lakes, savannas). Here in the heart of Africa, Corban University School of Ministry is reaching out to Cameroon’s pastors. The University’s newly created Africa Initiative, in partnership with International Training & Equipping Ministries, seeks to give pastors in Cameroon the biblical training they so desperately need. “During the past 100 years, West African Christianity has gone from 1.7 percent of the population to 35.8 percent,” Trull said. “However, this incredible evangelistic growth has created a leadership vacuum. There is an average of one trained pastor for every 20 churches in West African countries such as Cameroon. “The need for pastoral training has outstripped the availability of qualified people to train them,” he added. Thousands of new African indigenous churches (AIC) are being created across the nation, often by relatively new believers in their 20s or 30s who feel an immediate call to ministry. Most do not have denominational support or training.
“Our goal is to provide that training to those men,” Trull said. “There are challenges, but it is where the greatest need is. Cameroon is close to the Islamic pressure coming from the north. So, it was a strategic choice rather than a safe choice.” The School of Ministry faculty is developing a 3-year training program for Cameroon’s AIC pastors. The training will include classes on Bible interpretation, preaching, leadership development, evangelism and worldview. Pastors who complete the whole program will receive Corban University certificates. While much of the course work will be completed in their home regions, the pastors will attend conferences in the city of Bamenda. In May 2013, three Corban faculty members and several students will travel to Bamenda to start the training and offer encouragement. Thereafter, the goal of Corban’s Africa Initiative is to send faculty to Cameroon twice per year, in January and May. Follow-up will be done by national directors and through cell phone text messages. “Our vision is to have American pastors team teaching with Corban faculty to create a partnership between the University, American churches and Cameroonian churches,” Trull said. “I’m convinced that if people could see the significance of what is happening over there, they couldn’t help but be drawn to it.”
When students returned from summer vacation, four new classrooms were ready to greet them. Although Richard L. Caulkins Hall was open for classes at the beginning of the school year, a few weeks later the new building’s namesake was formally recognized and its classrooms dedicated. The building adds two 50-seat classrooms and two 25-seat classrooms to Corban’s Salem campus. During the ceremony, several former colleagues and students of Caulkins acknowledged his influence on their lives. His legacy at Corban spans more than a half century and includes the development of the curriculum that Corban has used as its liberal arts programs expanded. The longtime professor started at Corban, then Western Baptist Bible College, in 1956. For English professor Colette Tennant, Caulkins was more than a professor and colleague; he was a mentor and friend. “I was able to start World Thought & Culture with him, and team-teach it with him for four years,” Tennant said. “It was like an extra college degree for me. I learned so much in those four years and continue to use what I learned.” The new Caulkins Hall classrooms are enhanced with technology that allows faculty to wirelessly connect to projectors, speakers and the Internet. They can use laptop computers, iPads and other teaching tools without the need for a computer cabinet. Some faculty, including Assistant Professor of Education Jesse Payne, use this flexibility to arrange the classroom to better suit their teaching styles. A display honoring Caulkins was created for the lobby by Steve Hunt, Corban’s vice president for marketing. It features quotes and poetry from some of those he influenced, including Tennant and Corban Provost Matt Lucas, who was a student of Caulkins. The display also showcases his love of reading and books and other important aspects of Caulkins’ life. The Richard L. Caulkins Hall has eased the shortage of large classrooms on the Salem campus. It was built by Blazer Industries in Aumsville, Ore., and moved into place by Pacific Mobile and Highline Construction. Director of Campus Care Tom Samek served as the project supervisor.

CORBAN ATHLETE USES STUDY ABROAD TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR CHILDREN San Jose, Costa Rica, is a contrast of affluence and poverty, “Girls grow up really fast there,” she said. “Genesis was often within blocks of each other. in that in-between stage where she wanted to play basketball, but was also too cool for that.” After a week, When Corban senior Rachael Estabrook traveled to the Estabrook was able to develop a friendship with the city as part of a 5-week study abroad program for athletes, girl and get her to “open up” to her team and other kids. she didn’t know what to expect.

While in Costa Rica, Estabrook played basketball with the Costa Rican National Women’s Basketball team The trip was prompted by an email about Beyond Study and the women’s team from the University of Costa Abroad from Terry Williams, one of Corban’s head Rica. She also took advantage of travel opportunities coaches.

Estabrook said she was able to show her faith through love, and “I’ve always wanted to study abroad, but as an athlete, learned a lot about how people I never could do it during the school year,” she often stereotype and judge said. “This gave me the opportunity to be part of a Christians.

Broadway Across America presents “War Horse” March 3, 2013, Sunday, 6:30 p.m. A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. England, 1914. As World War I begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and New York. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.
Orchestra (first floor), Sections A, B and E: $55 and $63. First Balcony, Section B: $55. Tickets will be mailed February 15, 2013.

Total Personal Growth Why Holistic Development is Essential Continued from pg. 15
We live in a broken world … full of broken promises, broken dreams, broken lives. Nothing seems “altogether” anymore. In the midst of such shatteredness, however, God invites us to experience wholeness. Wholeness in our own life, and wholeness in our relationships. As a result, growth as whole persons is anything but optional. Even Jesus Christ,
the perfect Son of God, experienced apparent personal growth. This process enabled Him to relate to others at every turn (Hebrews 4:14-16).
It is vital that we do the same. How? By getting the proper exercise, rest and nourishment:
We see this most concisely in the Bible’s description of Jesus as a teenager: “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men” (Luke 2:52).
physically (“and stature”)
psychologically (“in wisdom”)
spiritually (“with God”) socially (“and men”)
