// JULY 5TH-11TH, 2020 //

Middle School Camp is a blast! Each summer we devote one week exclusively to the delightfully unpredictable, the questionable hygiene and total blast that is having a camp full of 12-14 year olds! The week is a whirlwind of upbeat music, long afternoons spent by the lake, massive team competitions, and opportunities to reflect with some of their peers about what life is really all about! For some students, it is their first real opportunity to take ownership of a faith.

Join us for a week long adventure July 2020!

Since I grew up in New Jersey, I decided to attend Alaska Bible College (BA in Education, 1999). Alaska was really cold, so I thawed a little in teaching High School classes in Bible and mathematics from 1999-2004 in Denver, CO.


There is no ocean in Colorado, so I began my graduate work at Biola University (MA in Christian Apologetics, 2003) in southern California with the intent to pursue graduate work in World Religions. Upon finding myself gripped more by the philosophical questions underlying the religious ones, I returned to Biola (this time Biola’s seminary, Talbot School of Theology) for their philosophy program (MA in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics, 2006). I had not completely solved any philosophical problems so I pursued answers at the University of Iowa (MA and PhD in Philosophy, 2011). I am currently working on answers to these questions as a professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

I teach both in Scarborough College and the School of Theology. At Scarborough, I teach the humanities seminars, exploring the great books, as well as courses in philosophy and apologetics.

I love to challenge students to think hard and to do so with care. I’m convinced that pursuing truth and thinking well can be an act of worship as we love God with our minds.

I get the privilege to regularly speak at churches and conferences, and I blog at www.travisdickinson.com

I once had some hobbies but now I spend most of my time exploring the good life with my wife and four children.


Good Friday is an alternative pop/rock band from Portland, Oregon. With lyrics based around faith and love while dealing with doubt, depression, anxiety, and even suicidal thoughts, Good Friday aims to speak from experience to create personal connections with listeners.


Good Friday formed in early 2015, playing around the Portland and Seattle areas with their original music. They have released two full albums:  Blind  in 2016, and the self-titled Good Friday  in 2019. Now, Good Friday has been touring across North America since April 2019. 

The band consists of Hayden McAllister (drums, trumpet, and background vocals), Eli Fissell (bass), and Dawson Kolstad (lead vocals, guitar, and piano)
