The Campolo Fellows Speaker Series is sponsored by the Campolo Center for Ministry in collaboration with Eastern University. Each semester we invite faith- and thought-leaders who are inspired by and share Tony’s vision for faith, reason and justice, to engage with the Eastern community and mentor the Campolo Scholars. These practitioners of the Christian faith encourage the Campolo Scholars to use their gifts and training for the benefit of God’s Kingdom.
The November 2017 Campolo Fellows are Michael Gingerich and Tom Kaden, Founders of Someone To Tell It To, an itinerant, non-profit counseling service that ministers to people through compassionate listening.
Schedule of Events

Campolo Fellows Dinner and Conversation with the Campolo Scholars and special guests. During this informal gathering, we invite the Campolo Fellow to share their personal story (how and when did they discern their calling, what and who influenced and affirmed it, what are the unique challenges they face in ministry today, etc) and to speak pastorally in to the lives of these students who are looking for examples of people in the world doing the holistic work of the Gospel.
Friday, November 10th: 10-11 AM (Open to the Public)
Eastern University, McInnis Auditorium
Windows on the Word Lecture: The Art of Listening: The principles of compassionate listening and how they make you a better family member, friend and follower of Jesus
Michael and Tom will share stories from their book Someone To Tell It To: Moved With Compassion, published by Masthof Press, October 5, 2017.

They speak to the pain, brokenness, joy and triumph of people that they have encountered on the journey – and the compassionate way of responding to those experiences.
