This is an invitation to celebrate and congratulate our friends Steve Thompson (Canada West MCP; Edmonton congregation) and Wendell Martin (Canada East, Port Elgin congregation), members and leaders in Community of Christ in Canada, upon their graduation from Community of Christ Seminary with a Masters of Arts degree in Religion (MAR).
On Saturday, December 14, Wendell and Steve walked across the stage in the historic Community of Christ Auditorium at our International Headquarters complex in Independence, Missouri, USA, and were granted diplomas for their successful completion of the program. The program of study includes 10 courses on topics including Christian history and theology, Community of Christ history, scripture, and theology, and contemporary application to ministry in the church today. (See the detailed program description here.)
Steve and Wendell responded to a sense of personal call. They worked very hard and sacrificed to improve themselves for service to church and community. They join an illustrious group of graduates in Canada and around the world.
I’m grateful to them for all their hard work to complete this degree while continuing to serve church and community all the while.
I’m thankful for the support of their spouses and families so that these gifts may be present in our church in Canada.
CONGRATULATIONS STEVE AND WENDELL!!!!
Art Smith, Apostle for Community of Christ in Canada

The board of directors is happy to announce that a new Samish Island Campground manager has been selected. Chris and his wife Kate are already dealing with the issues of closing the campground for the season as well as moving into the house. Here is a brief bio:
My name is Chris Steinel and I am the new Samish Island campground manager. I'm married to Kate Steinel (Anderson) and we have two amazing daughters, Julie and Anna, ages 10 and 7 respectively. Kate and I met at Graceland and were married upon graduation in Anchorage Alaska. I graduated Graceland with a B.S. in Microbiology with minors in Chemistry and Religion. After a decade working as an industrial chemist I went back to school to obtain an M.A. in Special Education. I have worked with, and passionately enjoyed teaching, emotionally disturbed elementary age students for the past three years. We have also owned and operated a small business. We are all thrilled to be here in Washington and look forward to sharing our hospitality with each and every camper we meet in the coming years.
