Family Week provides rich opportunities for families of all shapes and sizes to enjoy time together in study, creative arts, play and adventure. Following the rich inter-generational worship at The Agape Center, families will join in one of eight available workshops. As a family choose five Family Week workshops. Upon arrival you will be given a schedule of the order of activities you have been assigned for the week. Evenings include campfires, games, hikes, a musical concert, cookout, a parade and July 4th fireworks celebration (weather permitting).

Too often we rely only on words, which have limits. Using art as prayer we are invited to explore the mystery and revelation of God from a place where there are no words. How might an intentional engagement with our imagination and our spirituality lead us to see the divine in (and connect with) one another? By gathering a group of all ages and engaging its collective wisdom, we will seek to inspire one another in prayer and art to make a visible sign of invisible grace.


instructor_chuck_hoffmanChuck Hoffman has passion for the spiritual in art. He finds inspiration in the transcending connection of art, prayer and faith regardless of a person’s cultural background or religious tradition. Time spent living on the peace line in Belfast, Northern Ireland confirmed for Chuck the healing power of art in forgiveness and reconciliation. Chuck, a painter, designer and workshop facilitator, received his MA from Luther Seminary and a BFA from Miami University and worked as an Associate Creative Director for the Walt Disney Company. He received the 2009-2010 Art & Innovation Fellowship Award from Luther Seminary and became their first full time Artist In Residence from 2009-2011. He was the 2010-2011 St. Paul Interfaith Merit Scholarship Recipient completing his Masters degree in May 2011.
