Family Camp: July 8-13

Pastor Paul Oman and Nate Bergengren

Topic: "Drawn to the Word - Seeing Our Way Through the Bible"

Join Artist and Pastor Paul Oman on this visual journey through the Bible. You will experience the storyline of the Old and New Testaments come to life as Paul draws and paints these encounters before your eyes.  You will see and remember the "big picture" of the Bible, and in particular, the larger-than-life place Jesus holds for you. Music and sound effects will be incorporated into this visual process. 80% or more of the teaching time will directly engage Paul's drawing and painting skills, with the remaining time for discussion of theological and cultural insights, and application.

Pastor Paul Oman has been painting larger-than-life sized murals for live audiences since 2006. While serving as a Lutheran pastor in Wisconsin for 8 years, he painted the message during worship on Good Friday and Christmas Eve. The word got out (so to speak) and as a result, Paul has painted full-time across the United States and in China since June 2011 with his Drawn to the Word artistic ministry. You will see stories of the Old and New Testament with memorable perspective through the visual arts, the live painting process, music & sound, and Crossways Bible materials developed by the Rev. Dr. Harry Wendt. Come and see!



Nate Bergengren is an experienced worship leader and an accomplished guitar player and vocalist. He understands his work as helping communities find their song, and he senses the God-message in all kinds of art. In particular, he has seen the power that pop music has for those who struggle to understand the relevance of church. Having served in a variety of contexts with many different musicians and leaders, Nate has gained a broad perspective of the wide scope of modern expressions of worship. He has a B.A in religion from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN, has worked in youth ministry, and is currently Director of Modern Worship Arts & Media at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Brooklyn Park, MN.
