jubilee WHO PRODUCES JUBILEE?

The CCO (Coalition for Christian Outreach) is a campus ministry that partners with churches, colleges, and other organizations to develop men and women who live out their Christian faith in every area of life.  Our ministry is distinct in three ways: 1. Our ministry is transformational.  We challenge the students we serve  to submit every area of their lives to Jesus Christ.  2. We partner with churches, colleges, and other organizations, placing our staff in strategic positions of influence on campus. Most of our staff people serve as an arm of the local church on campus, while others work in the chaplain’s office or in multicultural relations, student services, wilderness ministry, service learning, athletics, or residence life. 3. We do contextual ministry, meaning that our staff people adjust to the needs of the particular campus at which they serve. No two CCO ministries look exactly alike.

TRANSFORM EVERYTHING God made it all, and God cares about it all. God created everything good, and while everything is now twisted and distorted, it is still a part of God’s good creation. That is why Jesus—Immanuel, God with us—came to live among us: to transform everything back to its undistorted state. That’s what God calls us—as followers of Jesus, enlivened by the Holy Spirit—to engage for His Kingdom’s sake. Transformation. Of everything. With the world around us shouting that everything is broken, or that we are the true center of the universe, or that the only thing that we should be about is selffulfillment, it’s time to take a deeper look into the truth of the Gospel and how we are called by God to be agents of change—of transformation. The Gospel of Jesus Christ, the promise that His sacrifice makes possible the redemption and restoration of the whole world, means that how we treat our roommates, how we view business transactions, how we study, play, work, and interact with everyone we meet can make a difference in the world. How we live out our faith in Jesus Christ can transform the way things are into the way God intended them to be. Our hope for this weekend is that God will expose you to new ideas, new passions, new callings, and fresh meaning for your life. We pray that you will be transformed into a change agent for God’s Kingdom. After all, the whole story of the Bible points us to God’s work of changing a broken world back into the perfectly aligned and thriving creation He originally intended. While we know that Jesus will be the ultimate restorer, as bearers of His image and members of His body, He invites us into the family business—to create signposts in our pieces of the everything that will point toward their ultimate restoration. We have designed Jubilee to introduce you to people who are seeking to live their lives as those signposts. As you process what you are hearing, you will understand more deeply your place in the larger work that Christ is doing in the world. We hope that this weekend will transform you, and that you will return to your campuses encouraged, inspired, and equipped to be a part of the transformation of everything around you.

You’ll find books by conference speakers, books by tons of other great authors, and the newest resources from Hearts & Minds Bookstore.

SOCIALIZE

Jubilee gathers together a rare community of people from all over the country. You’ll find women and men who share your calling, interests, passions, and some with whom you have little in common. These connections provide incredible opportunities to explore, discuss, learn, and discern together. Look up friends from previous Jubilees and make new ones. Re-imagine the world together, share what’s working on your campus, put your frustrations and triumphs into words. Meals are a perfect time for this, so never eat alone!

BROWSE

You won’t want to miss the exhibits! The organizations attending are offering great resources and opportunities. And you can win prizes by visiting with exhibitors! Grab the exhibitor challenge card from your registration bag, stop by at least 10 exhibitor booths, have your card validated after your conversation, then be entered to win prizes! Drop your completed card off at Jubilee HQ.

CELEBRATE

We’re thrilled that this weekend will challenge you to think in new ways about old ideas, or to discover old thoughts about new things. Don’t be afraid to have some fun as you think. God has invited us to be part of His work in the world— that’s a great reason to have a party. Jubilee is our party and we’re so glad you are here!

Your work matters. Press on. Ryan fell in love with winemaking. A few years ago, he left a full-time music ministry, moved his young family to Oregon and became a small-batch artisanal wine producer. Today he operates a successful urban winery in Portland. And he understood intuitively that stepping into a God-given vocation wasn’t at odds with being both entrepreneurial and ambitious. See: God provided the fields, the sunlight, the rain, and the grapes. But it was Ryan’s job to make the wine. And he wasn’t content to settle for good enough. He set out to make world-class wine. Just a few years into his venture, he’s already been named one of the top ten urban wineries in the country. Soon, it’ll be your turn to make something world-class — something so good people will drive miles and miles just to come taste it. Here at The High Calling, we celebrate our drive to serve the Kingdom by making good things for the world, as we co-create with God. We’re here at Jubilee. Visit us at Booth 107 and: · Plug into 60 years of conversation about work, life, and God. · Dive into helpful articles hand-curated for young professionals · Learn the good stories about good companies and organizations · Get connected to High Calling coaches and experts in your field of study who are ready to engage you personally. · Subscribe today — it’s free — you’ll receive new articles all month long, written by Jubilee students for Jubilee students.

As you transition from college to colleague, remember: your work matters. What will you create out in the workplace?

Our prayer lives connect us to the Body of Christ around the world, especially when we raise our voices in common prayer.

With sinners and saints, we can lift our prayers and gather. Together. In our frenzied schedules, liturgy invites us into a sustainable rhythm of life. In an individualistic culture, liturgy helps us live a communal life. In an ever-changing world, liturgy roots us in the eternal—a God who is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Fayette

Compline (Night Prayer and Worship)

The ancient office of Compline derives its name from a Latin word meaning “completion” (completorium). It is above all a service of quietness and reflection before rest at the end of the day.

Please Fill My Bowl! Help pets and the people who love them. The Fill the Bowl Project is part of The Humane Society of The United States’ Animal Protection Ministries program. All across the country, churches regularly donate food to local pantries and other programs that fight hunger, but pet food is often forgotten. Pets are a vital part of our community, but are often overlooked in times of need. Through the Fill the Bowl Project, faith communities can help by collecting cans and bags of pet food. One simple donation provides food for a pet and peace of mind for an owner. Fill a bowl and help keep families and pets together.

WORKSHOPS O N E BASICS OF CHRISTIANITY: FINDING YOURSELF IN GOD’S STORY BILLY FERRELL

Every human being is living a story, yet many don’t even realize it. Some who realize that they are living a story believe that they are themselves the author. Christians believe that the story we live is bigger than us, and that God is the author. Come and discover the grand narrative of God’s story and consider how your life plays a significant role in this cosmic drama.

TRANSFORM LEARNING: RENEWING THE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE KEITH MARTEL & DEREK MELLEBY

Time Magazine recently named “questioning the value of higher education” as one of the top-10 most pressing issues facing the USA. Have you ever wondered what your college degree will be “worth” after you graduate? Does being a Christian make a difference in how you approach learning? The apostle Paul exhorted the church in Rome to “not conform to the pattern of this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of the mind” (Romans 12:2). We think that this verse, and many like it, has huge implications for academic faithfulness and for your life as a disciple of Jesus. Our hope is that this interactive session both energizes and equips you to make the most of your time in college.

Allegheny 1 & 2

THE SUNDAY-TO-MONDAY GAP TOM NELSON

Writer and social commentator Wendell Berry has noted that the quality and significance of our work is largely determined by our understanding of the story in which we are a part. Unfortunately, the story of work that fills our minds and fuels our hearts is often a distorted one that reinforces a gap between our Sunday worship and our Monday work. What is the Good News story of work revealed to us in Holy Scripture? How does a greater understanding of the biblical story inform our minds, fuel our imaginations, and shape what we are called to do each and every day? God created you with work in mind. How you see your work really matters!

Stan Benjamin leads a group of 25 scientists at an NOAA research laboratory to design and improve regional and global weather and earth system models. He will explain how he got to this job, what they do in their group, and, for examples, how their experimental models were used for forecasts of Hurricane Sandy and the June 29, 2012 Mid-Atlantic derecho event. He’ll also explain how he works with the aviation, energy, and severe weather forecasting communities to try to serve them. Stan will also describe how God has changed him through his work and how he is given opportunities to honor God in his work.

BEYOND THE GAME: INTEGRATING LESSONS LEARNED FROM ATHLETICS INTO FAITHFULNESS AFTER COLLEGE KELLY COOKE, MARK STEFFEY, AND ATHLETICS PANEL

That famous TV commercial states it best, “There are over 400,000 NCAA student-athletes, and almost all of us will go pro in something other our sport.” This session will explore how studentathletes can take their experiences as undergraduates and transfer those skills into the workplace after college. We will also explore how faith grows in the midst of the unique experience of the student-athlete.

THE POWER TO TRANSFORM: A CHRISTIAN APPROACH TO THE STUDY OF HISTORY JOHN FEA

Are you a history major or a history buff who is trying to think about how your love for the study of the past is connected to your Christian faith? This session, drawn from John Fea’s forthcoming book, Why Study History: Reflecting on the Importance of the Past, will challenge us to think about how a responsible study of history can help us be better Christian citizens and even grow spiritually.

CHRISTIAN ENGAGEMENT IN THE SOCIAL SCIENCES BRAD FREY

It’s an incredibly important time to be a student in the social sciences. The brokenness of our society and its people has never demanded an engaged response by social scientists more than today. And there are some amazing and encouraging theoretical changes happening that open up the possibilities of speaking into those urgent issues as a person of faith. This seminar will help students think deeply about the new day in the social sciences as well as charge them to tackle the brokenness of our society as never before.

EDUCATION FOR THE COMMON GOOD NICOLE BAKER FULGHAM

ON SPIDERMAN & SCHOOL: CHOOSING AN EDUCATION THAT BECOMES A VOCATION STEVEN GARBER

GOD’S LAWYER OR DEVIL’S ADVOCATE?

GUY GARDNER WITH CHRIS COX, CHUCK KILLORAN & DAVE LIEFER

Washington

JIM GASH “Christian lawyer” is not an oxymoron. God can and does use legally trained professionals to bring hope to the hopeless, freedom The whole world seems a possibility—from astronomy to the enslaved, and justice to the oppressed. After serving as a law to zoology, with history and politics, economics and poetry too. But what is ours to think about and care about, to work at over time? What clerk for a renowned federal judge, as an associate at one of the top law firms in the world, and as Associate Dean and Professor is it that draws us in? And has staying power? That keeps making sense over the course of life? This seminar will address the vocation of at Pepperdine Law School, Professor Gash’s most rewarding legal student, and finding our way into occupations that become vocations— work has been as an advocate for children who have been forgotten in African prisons and as the Specialist Advisor to the Chief Justice learning all we can from Spiderman along the way. of Uganda. This workshop will explore how those in the legal Cambria West profession can live a life worthy of the calling we have received as believers. JUBILEE TRADES Jesus didn’t go to college, but was apprenticed as a tradesman—a carpenter. How can we as Christians follow Jesus in the work for which we are preparing as carpenters, designers, machinists, masons, or technicians? This panel of accomplished professional Christians are putting their faith to work in their respective trades. Designed for students from technical, vocational, or trade programs, the panel will be moderated by Guy Gardner, President of the Williamson Free School of Mechanical Trades, who as a fighter pilot flew 177 missions in Viet Nam, and as a NASA astronaut flew two Space Shuttle missions. His post-NASA career has been largely committed to educating young men.

CALLED TO CAMPUS? DISCERNING IF YOU SHOULD GO INTO COLLEGE MINISTRY STEPHEN LUTZ

The work of a campus minister can be a lot of fun, but it’s not all hanging out, drinking coffee, and playing ultimate Frisbee. It’s a vocation for transforming lives.

CLOSING THE SUNDAY-TO-MONDAY GAP TOM NELSON

What does it mean to better connect Sunday to Monday? If we are going to close the Sunday-to-Monday gap and embrace a more integral faith, we will need to address some common distortions about faith and work. We will also need to be discerning about God’s vocational call on our lives and prepare for the sizeable challenges and exciting opportunities our workplace will inevitably bring. Christ redeemed you with work in mind. How you do your work really matters!

ENGAGING THE WORLD WITHOUT DESTROYING IT OR BEING DESTROYED BY IT JESSICA PATTERSON Can a Christian seek to change evil in the world without being overwhelmed by it?

CHRISTIAN POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT AS ENDURING PUBLIC FAITHFULNESS VINCENT BACOTE

The recent election has many Christians reconsidering the path and posture of political engagement.

STORIES OF THE ORDINARY LEROY BARBER

How do everyday people make a difference in the world? Seemingly small gestures of love and support represent life and hope. We will draw attention to the beauty that routine can bring to daily life. Each day has its own wonder, and there are people who personify that wonder and fill the need we have to be loved brilliantly day after day after day. Those who deliver hope every day are truly extraordinary people, and they are not one-time speakers or once-a-week deliverers of sermons. We will highlight their stories as an inspiration to all who serve and create. This workshop will highlight everyday missions with an emphasis on people making a difference from unlikely places— people who, from hard places, make something beautiful.

How do we fight if we don’t know what to fight for? What is it that we are supposed to be fighting for anyway? We often use phrases like we’ve come so far, or we’re not where we use to be, or I don’t see color, we’re past the time of the Civil Rights Movement. And yet we face many injustices in this world. Whether it is the economic plights of our urban areas, discrimination against each other because of gender or race, people are fighting every day for freedom and rights throughout this world. So we ask: Are you called to be a change agent? If so, what is your call? How do your education, resources, and experiences have the power and potential to change and influence a person, area, or campus? Are you sleeping? If so, it’s time to be awakened!

LISTENING TO POP MUSIC AS A WAY OF LOVING GOD KEN HEFFNER

If all things are made in Christ, all things are being ruined by sin, and all things are being made new in Christ, then there are no parts of life that are not of interest to Christians. Everything matters, including the music that we listen to and love. How do we listen to music in a way that both recognizes where God shows up in the world, and also recognizes where sin distorts our ability to see and experience that reality? This workshop will be a music-listening session, where we explore how to listen to music “Christianly.” We will practice this through listening to some contemporary examples in pop music: from Fun. to Regina Spektor, from Andrew Bird to Cut Copy, and more.

THE CHRISTIAN JUMP FROM CHARITY TO JUSTICE: USING ALL OF YOUR GIFTS SARAH ROHRER

Many churches, campuses, and communities across the nation respond to the issue of hunger with direct service, like serving in soup kitchens or collecting money to send to developing countries. This work is essential and saves lives every day. But it doesn’t live out the full call we hear from the Bible. In this session, we will talk about the distinction between charity and justice work and how the two go hand in hand. We’ll discuss how adding justice work is an approachable way to “loose the chains of injustice” (Isaiah 58:6) and how, paired with charity, it will help us all to “spend [our]selves on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed” (Isaiah 58:10), in both the short- and long-term picture.

HEARING GRACE IN MODERN ART DANIEL A. SIEDELL

Modern art hasn’t fared well among leaders in the Christian community. Many have argued that it is dangerous and corrosive, not only to art and culture, but to the Christian faith. This workshop will suggest that the problem is not with modern art, but with the kind of theology of culture that has been applied to it. It will reveal modern art to be a theologically rich and robust cultural practice, and perhaps one that you might even come to enjoy. The modern artist Edvard Munch once said, “Art comes from joy and pain,” and then he added, “but mostly from pain.” The workshop will begin and end here, with pain, suffering, and weakness.

TRANSPLANTED FOR TRANSFORMATION: THE REAL OPPORTUNITY FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH ON U.S. SOIL SANDEEP THOMAS

In the parable of the sower, Jesus talked about four kinds of soil: rocky soil, shallow soil, soil full of thorns and thistles, and fertile soil. In some nations, strong cultural and religious influences make the soil seem hard and rocky, or the intense drive to materialism makes the ground seem full of thorns and thistles, or opposition from the government makes it very difficult soil for the Word of God to take root. Even though the soil in the United States harbors its own share of thorns and thistles, because the U.S. was founded on the principles of religious freedom and because a strong Judeo-Christian influence still exists, the soil here presents many opportunities for spiritual growth for the international student and scholar. This workshop will focus on opportunities for spiritual growth in this country.

OUR IDENTITY AND PURPOSE FROM GOD’S PERSPECTIVE CRISTINA BLACKMAN

Society is accustomed to dividing and labeling people groups around the globe. By human standards, we have been defined as Hispanic, African American, Caucasian, Asian, American, European, and so on. Ultimately for those who believe in Christ, our citizenship is in Heaven and we are here on planet Earth to fulfill a mission. Therefore, regardless of our nationality, color, and ethnicity, our purpose is to paint the world with grace, mercy, redeeming love, patience, perseverance, discipline, and excellency in those areas where we have been called to perform. These are the standards that we have been given by Jesus to make a difference and make Him known. As individuals, we have to draw our identity and our value from Him, regardless of the ethnicity we represent.

We will share the concept of Focal Practices to help us discern ways we can engage with technology to become people more fully centered in Christ and more deeply engaged with the world.

REDEEMING INNOVATION: NEW IDEAS FOR MAKING ALL THINGS NEW STEPHEN LUTZ

RE-DEFINING SUCCESS: A STUDY OF THE LIFE AND WORK OF JEREMIAH RODGER WOODWORTH

Do you have an idea for a new process, website, product, or company, something that you think could change the world? How do you bring that idea to reality? How do you know if it will really change anything, and if that change will be good? Since Jesus is “making all things new,” Christians should be bold and fearless innovators, creating things and processes that bless and give life. This session describes a uniquely Christian view of innovation and will provide reasons to create new things, as well as ideas for overcoming common obstacles to new ideas. Practical instruction will be given to bring ideas to fruition.

Westmoreland Central

“We don’t like lepers or losers very well; we prefer climbers and comers” (Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.). To many, successism is our culture’s religion. If you are successful, you can’t be all bad. Most definitions involve achievements, acquisitions, and acclamations. Success is the good life—it is coveted, copied, and chased after. It breeds success. Yet by these measurements, Jeremiah was not successful. He preached for 40 years and nobody listened to him. He was poor, rejected, and imprisoned. But measured by God, according to obedience and faithfulness, Jeremiah was a huge success. How do we live life at its best? How do we work and minister with excellence and not succumb to our culture’s successism? How can we risk radical obedience and faithfulness in the face of opposition and personal cost? God may have the answer to these questions and others as we discuss the life and work of His successful servant Jeremiah.

SPEAKERBOOKS For most of Jubilee’s history, HEARTS & MINDS of Dallastown, Pennsylvania has been the conference bookstore. Emerging from Byron and Beth Borger’s involvement with the earliest Jubilee conferences, HEARTS & MINDS is a local, independent bookstore which seeks to illustrate the thinking and perspective of Jubilee. The Jubilee conference and the book display affirm that Christ is Lord of every zone of life, and therefore His people must be continuously learning how best to serve Him in their various vocations, callings, classes, and careers. Because of their association with the CCO and the Jubilee conference, and because of their wide knowledge of books, resources, and ideas that can help us live out the implications of the CCO’s Kingdom vision, we are pleased that they are with us again for Jubilee 2013. Please take time to study the book display, as we are confident it will enhance your experience of the conference and you will find resources to nurture your growth in faith and action in the months to come. www.heartsandmindsbooks.com

Our world-class faculty draws from the richness of the gospel and the resonant cultural context that surrounds us to inform our ministry to the city.

The True Story of the Whole World: Finding Your Place in the Story of God Michael Goheen & Craig Bartholomew (Faith Alive) $12.99 One of our favorite Biblically-oriented books, a splendid and easy-to-read overview of the Bible, a thoughtful and insightful approach that helps us to see the unfolding drama of redemption and how the Bible shapes our worldview.

Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview, and Cultural Formation James K.A. Smith (Baker Academic) $21.95 A deep and fabulous study, exploring everything from pop culture consumerism to postmodern scholarship, to how our deepest desires and ways of being are shaped by either the “liturgies” of secular culture or the liturgies of God’s Kingdom expressed in radical worship. The first of what will be a three-part magnum opus written by a philosopher from Calvin College, Michigan Imagining the Kingdom: How Worship Works   James K.A. Smith (Baker Academic) $22.99   This brand new book will surely be one of the most talked about books of the year. It is a powerful, stimulating sequel to the important Desiring the Kingdom. Smith was a hit at Jubilee last year, and many have been eager to see how his argument about “cultural liturgies” unfolds in this study of the life-shaping influence of worship.

Beyond Homelessness: Christian Faith in a Culture of Displacement Brian Walsh & Steve Bouma-Prediger (Eerdmans) $27.00 A magisterial study of how failing to believe that God is redeeming all things (using images of homemaking and homecoming) leads to a postmodern dislocation from place, which helps create harsh economics that hurt the poor. What are the relationships between our Up in the Air emptiness and the injustices of disregard for the Earth and the oppressed? One of the most provocative, important, and serious examples of radical Christian scholarship in years!

Deep, rich, wise (and a bit controversial), by a renowned sociologist.
