2016 Preachers of the Week Announced

Posted on August 20, 2015

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 the Chautauqua Move­ment: religion, education, cultural arts and recreation.

The religion pillar is administered by Lakeside Chautauqua’s Religious Life Department, overseeing a number of programs and ac­tivities, including Sunday Worship Services, Faith for Living Hour, Vespers by the Lake, Children’s Ministries (Children’s Church, God Squad, Middle Grade Mad­ness and Lakeside Under­ground), 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 Preach­ers of the Week.

Lakeside’s Religious Life Department is pleased to an­nounce the chaplains for the 2016 summer season:
