Adult Education


Director of Adult Education, Else Tennessen.

Name: Else Tennessen
Job: Director of Adult Education
Email: etennessen@stlukeorthodox.com

As adults, it’s easy to be consumed by the cares of this life—jobs, family, chores, money, and worldly worries. The purpose of the adult education program is to remind us that there is more to this life, and to enable us to continue learning about God and growing in our faith and service to the King of all. Sometimes just the simple reading of a book on the Faith or sayings of the Church Fathers can be enough to keep us on the right path and encourage us not to give up—the Kingdom is here and is coming.

The current program consists of two main activities:

  1. An adult Bible study led by Lee Kopulos, and
  2. The Orthodox School of the Seventy, led by Else Tennessen.

The Bible study led by Lee Kopulos meets each Sunday after Liturgy. A book of the Bible is read, studied, and discussed. Lee prepares worksheets and directs the study with the help of Bible commentaries. The class is appropriate for adults 18 years and up. It’s lively and fun; don’t miss it! For more info, contact Lee at leekopulos(at)yahoo(d0t)com.

The School of the Seventy is a “study on your own” adult education program. Current activities include book reading programs, lectures, workshops, and more. Students can earn “credits” for what they do, and the student with the most credits at the end of the school term receives a school prize. The School is conducted online at http://www.70school.blogspot.com. Students do not have to be St. Luke members to participate. The School is open to all adults 18 years and older. For more info, contact Else Tennessen at else10(at)gmail(d0t)com.

“I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. All of us who are mature should take such a view of things.” –Philippians 3
