OC to host Christian education conference

OC will host the 13th Annual Association of Christian Education Preparation Programs (ACEPP) Conference on October 3 and 4.  Teacher education professors from nine sister Church of Christ Colleges and Universities plan to be a part of the conference. 

Friday night’s schedule includes registration, dinner in the Gaylord University Center, a devotional led by Dr. John DeSteiguer, OC’s Vice President for Advancement, and a performance by New Reign.  Saturday morning begins with breakfast and a devotional followed by three sessions of professional presentations from selected conference attendees.  The afternoon session includes a campus tour, a visit to OC’s “Barn” to learn about Dr. Max Dobson’s highly regarded physical education class for special needs children and a concluding group discussion.

The ACEPP is an association of the Schools of Education from the Church of Christ colleges and universities.  The Association meets annually in the early fall on a rotating basis.  Last year’s conference was hosted by Pepperdine University and Harding University is scheduled to host the conference in 2009.
