MINDEN – With little fanfare but amazing attention to detail, First Baptist Church of Minden hosts an event each summer designed to minister to senior adults from across Northern Louisiana.
They’ve been leading what officially is known as a senior adult revival and mini chautauqua – “chautauqua” meaning “a summer school or educational meeting held in the summer,” according to www.dictionary.com. It’s named after the lake in upstate New York where it first took place.
“We call it summer camp for senior adults,” says Bill Crider, pastor of that age group at First Minden, where Leland Crawford is senior pastor.
