                                     the Presence of God through music. He has a love for the local church
                                     and a heart for helping young and old connect with God. His ability
                                     to help people see God through music is inspiring and contagious.
                                     Known for being more than just a musician or recording artist, Drew
                                     teaches people practically how to make space for God in their lives.
                                     Born in Southern Illinois, Drew has been leading worship for over 25
                                     years. He has ministered in Florida, Illinois, Texas and Kentucky. He
                                     is also known internationally through his musical direction with the
                                     International Worship Institute as a clinician and worship artist. Today
                                     Drew serves with First Christian Church Ministries in Kernersville,
                                     North Carolina. He is married to Sue Ellen and is the proud father of

                                Alumni Recognitions
Mid-Atlantic has always encouraged people to consider at least one year of Bible college educa-
tion, maybe as a foundation for studies in another field, as a factor in determining life's goals, or as
a source of Bible education to enable them to be more effective workers in the church, home, and
workplace. We are happy to recognize these who entered with the classes of '52, '62, '72, '82, '92,
or '02 (fall or spring) but did not receive a degree from MACU. (They may have earned degrees
from other institutions prior to or after attending MACU.) We have included those who attended
classes for credit (not audit) on campus and finished at least one semester. We have used the
married names that we know.

                        Children's Programming
     We welcome your children at the rally! Signs and maps will direct parents to appropriate rooms
(map, Page 12; use river entrances for classes Turner Hall). For us to serve you well, please ob-
serve the schedule that follows. Parents are to register their children and then leave because the
children adjust to the class better without parents in the room.
        • Children's areas will be open 15 minutes before each session begins.
        • Pick up children within 15 minutes following each session.
        • Parents are not to remain in the rooms with their children, with the exception of babies
          to 24 months. Parents will need to care for their babies and toddlers in the library.

                            Rally Service Project
Let's help! This year we have added a service project to the rally activities. The H.E.R. Shelter (Help
and Emergency Response, Inc.) is a domestic violence resource for the Hampton Roads area that
serves over 800 clients annually. During the rally we are collecting items for clients at the shelter
(see list). Perhaps you received an email about this project.

The H.E.R. Shelter began in 1985 as an emergency shelter for 7-10 women and children. Today, the
shelter provides 24-hour crisis counseling and emergency shelter to 42 men, women and children
every night. H.E.R. is nationally and statewide accredited and locally serves Portsmouth, Chesa-
peake, and North Suffolk. H.E.R. Resources also include case management, trauma therapy, child
advocacy, court advocacy, employment resources, housing advocacy, and one year of aftercare
service post shelter. H.E.R. serves over 800 clients annually and received the Governor's Promis-
ing Practice Award in 2011. The H.E.R. philosophy is to: Empower each client to break the cycle of
violence and to become healthy, productive, caring individuals whose strong sense of self worth is
directly transmitted to their children.

Please place the items you wish to donate to the shelter in the receptacle at the booth. Thanks for
sharing God's love in this tangible way during our time of fellowship and worship this year.
