We are so pleased and blessed to welcome Dr. Roy Lauter back to Taylor County Campmeeting 2018 as one of the evangelists. 

Dr. Roy Lauter came to Asbury College in 1961.  During his college years, he took an interim pastor position at New Hope Community Church in New Washington, Indiana.  Shortly thereafter, he was hired as New Hope's full-time pastor.  He spent much of his college years driving from Wilmore to Indiana every weekend.  He graduated in 1964, moved to Indiana and continued to pastor New Hope Community Church for the next 30 years.

Dr. Lauter started  New Hope International Ministries, through which hundreds of Asbury students have gone on short term mission trips.  Out of those students, at least 35 have become full-time missionaries.  

Dr. Lauter has done everything ranging from revivals, youth retreats, family retreats, mission conferences, leading young adults groups in his house about once a week and mentoring young pastors.

He is married to Sue Lauter.  They have one daughter, and two grandsons.

Dr. Lauter is also known for being a professor of Education here at Asbury College for 31 years. He was Director of Clinical and Field Experiences,and on numerous different types of education committees and boards.

One of Roy’s fellow colleagues described him as “a mentor, a friend, and a radiant example of a Godly servant”.

                

  Dan Schafer  

            Dr. Dan Schafer

     Evangelist and  

        Bible Study Teacher

We are happy to welcome Dr. Schafer back to Taylor County Campmeeting 2018 to preach and lead us in the morning Bible Study hour. 

Dr. Shafer is President of World Gospel Mission, Marion, IN., having accepted this position in July, 2016.

He came to know the Lord as a teenager at a church service. Three months later, God called him to full-time Christian service.

While attending Anderson University (Indiana), he married Pam, his high school sweetheart.  Dan then pastored churches in Ohio and Indiana.  During that time, he began to serve in regional and general leadership roles in Churches of Christ in Christian Union.

Dan's call from God was for full-time Christian service, but not necessarily in a pastorate. 

He contacted World Gospel Mission and was asked to serve at Fairhaven, a nuring home for missionaries in California.  Two years later he was asked to go to Hungary to fill in for a missionary who needed to return to the USA.

After 2 years in Hungary he returned to work at the WGM headquarters and served in several administrative roles.  During this time he earned his MBA from Indiana Wesleyan University and later an DBA from Anderson U. in business administration.  His PhD from Anderson U. is in business administration.

In 2001 they moved to Kansas City to serve at the Church of the Nazarene as executive vice president for the JESUS Film Project, and eventually became the director of Finance for the Global Missions department. 

Before coming back to WGM, Dan served as CFO for Shepherd Community Center in Indianapolis, IN.

Dan and Pam, who was right there with him all the time, have two children, Kevin (married to Kandy) and Julie (married to Johathan) and six grandchildren.
