A Look to the Chaplains for the 2014 Chautauqua Summer Season

Posted on August 27, 2013

Lakeside is part of the Chautauqua Movement, which flourished during the 19th and 20th centuries. It is considered to be one of the greatest revival movements in American history, dedicated to Christian values and cultural excellence, nurturing mind, body and spirit. Lakeside’s programming is built upon the four pillars of Chautauqua: religion, education, arts and recreation.

The religion pillar is administered in Lakeside Chautauqua’s Religious Life Department, overseeing a number of programs and activities, including Sunday Worship Services, Chaplain’s Hour, Evening Prayer & Praise Children’s Ministries (Children’s Church, God Squad, Middle Grade Madness and Teen Connect), Interfaith Week and the Wednesday Night Family Picnic.

The Lakeside Religious Advisory Team supports the programming committee of the Lakeside Chautauqua Board of Directors. This group of laity and clergy advise the Lakeside Chautauqua staff regarding the programs in the religion pillar, including future Chaplains of the Week.
