The late playwright Horton Foote influenced the choices of both individual artists who stood above the crowd in local theater in 2011.

Foote wrote the play “A Trip to Bountiful,” the movie version of which won its star, Geraldine Page, an Oscar in 1985. He also penned the screenplay for Harper Lee’s novel “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which guided Gregory Peck to Hollywood gold in 1962.

Today, two performers who recently assumed these familiar roles on local stages, stand to be applauded once again. They are Paul Eggington and Lynn Milgrim, the Daily Pilot’s Man and Woman of the Year in Theater for 2011.

Rick Warren and Saddleback Church partner with Vanguard to educate church planters

Saddleback Church is partnering with Vanguard University to offer a Master of Theological Studies (MTS) through the Saddleback Leadership Academy. The new venture is designed to equip the next generation of church leaders. Saddleback Leadership Academy is a key element of Pastor Rick Warren’s 10-year vision to start culturally relevant churches in strategic cities around the world.

Students enrolled in the Saddleback Leadership Academy for a one-year internship may enroll in Vanguard University’s Graduate Religion Program and earn 18 of 48 units toward the MTS degree on site at Saddleback. They complete 30 units of theology on campus at Vanguard.

Vanguard Provost Jeff Hittenberger says: “Vanguard shares Saddleback’s Christ-centered vision. The MTS/Church Planting program offers students who have already earned their undergraduate degree a chance to prepare for ministry and earn their Master’s degree in just four semesters compressed into 15 months. A student starting the program in May 2012 can be finished by August 2013.”

The Saddleback Church Leadership Academy seeks to equip, empower, and encourage individuals to pursue their calling to church planting or ministry leadership. According to Dave Alford, Director of the Leadership Academy, “The partnership with Vanguard will allow us to offer future church ministry leaders thorough, practical training in an accelerated format. We’ll be able to get qualified leaders into ministry faster.”
