Campolo Scholars Fellowship with Jon and Michelle Galdames-Henry

September 28, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

CCM alums, Jon and Michelle Galdames-Henry join the Campolo scholars for their weekly Monday Meetings.


After graduating in May 2019 and marrying in June, Jon and Michelle Galdames-Henry moved to Northern Virginia to begin ministering at Abiding Presence Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Burke, VA. Michelle serves as the Children and Family Minister and Jon as the Youth and Family Minister. They love the beautiful community of people they serve – who have warmly embraced them – and are thankful for the incredible blessing of ministering together. Thanks to the support of donors like you, we can offer generous scholarships for students dedicated to serve in ministry like Jon and Michelle and to help them graduate with little or no debt. This summer, during a virtual Campolo Scholars reunion event, Jon shared about the education and training they each received from the Campolo Scholars program at Eastern University. He felt that they had been prepared well for ministry, and for its challenges – such as Covid-19. Michelle was excited to announce that she’s begun the candidacy to be ordained as a deacon in the ELCA and will begin seminary in January 2021. We look forward to Jon and Michelle leading one of our weekly Campolo Scholar Fellowship meetings this semester and sharing the lessons they’ve learned from doing life and ministry together.


“What Ministry Is Not: Figuring Out What Ministry Actually Looks Like and How to Prepare.”
We’ll be using Brene Brown’s “BRAVING” acronym for discussion, so students should look up what Brene says it stands for and think about how it might tie into everyday ministry. Also, they should come ready with their wonderings about day-to-day vocational ministry (dealing with volunteers, budgets, relationship building, time management etc).
