Tony Campolo, a professor emeritus of sociology at Eastern University and a former faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania, will be the featured speaker Sunday during the 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services at the Ocean City Tabernacle.
For 40 years, he led the Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education, an organization he founded to create and support programs serving needy communities.
More recently, Campolo has provided leadership for the progressive Christian movement, Red Letter Christians, as well as for the Campolo Center for Ministry, a program which provides support to those the church has called to full-time ministry.
In November 2012, Campolo received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Youth Worker’s Convention.
The wording on the award is: “Award of Lifetime Achievement is proudly presented to Campolo who has defined and courageously pioneered what it means to encourage, care and lead students, possessing the qualities that inspire us and provoke us to continue the journey into the future with boldness and confidence.”
