Dr. Alan Arroyo & Dr. Carlos Campo: The Secret Kingdom for Educators
The 700 Club
Appearance Date: October 11, 2010
“No discipline has more influence today than education,” says Dr. Alan Arroyo. As a long-time educator, and the current Dean and Professor for the School of Education at Regent University, Arroyo is well versed with America’s education system. He believes that negative forces opposing Christ know that the best way to penetrate and change society is through education. “That is why forward-thinking policy makers, decision makers, and educators must tap into the source of true knowledge, wisdom, and truth in the invisible realm where they can unlock the abundant resources of the Secret Kingdom.”
Arroyo has long-respected Pat Robertson’s well-known book, The Secret Kingdom, and has read it several times. “I saw all kinds of application to education,” he says. “I could see where the laws not only pertain to how a teacher operated in a classroom, but also instructional techniques.”
After realizing the impact The Secret Kingdom could have in education, Arroyo requested permission from Dr. Robertson to make a new edition of the book geared specifically toward educators. Robertson obliged, and the faculty of Regent University School of Education started work on the project. Dr. Arroyo says this book is unique in that it really is a collaborative effort and all the contributors were faculty from the School of Education. Regent University President, Dr. Carlos Campo, is pleased with the collaborative effort, saying it paves the way for other departments to take on similar projects.
The Secret Kingdom for Educators is written to help all teachers and education leaders exceed their expectations and change lives, using God’s laws to deal with the problems in today’s schools. Whether working in public, private, or home schools, this book shows readers how to tap into the Secret Kingdom and use faith to improve any educational setting.
“We really first center on the teacher using the laws in their own life, so that doesn’t interfere with the separation of church and state required of public schools,” says Dr. Arroyo. “Then we show how to use it in the classroom without mentioning Christ. The Kingdom of God is in you, and you can bring that in the classroom and have supernatural things happen without uttering a word, a prayer, a Bible verse. It’s how much the teacher is tapped into the Secret Kingdom.”
Dr. Campo offers a similar sentiment. “This is something that transcends class and race and faith. These are principles that work for life,” he says. “They promote faith and learning. These principles are rock solid.”
Arroyo urges educators reading the book to ask themselves the following questions:
- What is the historical foundation of formal education?
- Was our country always in an educational crisis?
- How did we get where we are today?
- Where can we find solutions to the most pressing education problems in our history?
Alan A. Arroyo came to Regent University in 1986 as Director of Academic Services and Assistant Professor of Education. He established the university's distance learning program in his capacity as Dean of Extended Learning. He also established the university's conference and seminar department as the first director of conferences.
Dr. Arroyo is currently Dean and Professor in the School of Education at Regent University. Since he became dean in 1996 the school has grown from 100 students to over 500 full-time students. Recently, Dr. Arroyo co-directed several projects funded by the United States Department of Education to train educators on how to teach character in public schools. He has co-authored professional publications ranging from dealing with school discipline issues to meeting the needs of students with disabilities. His current research interests are in the areas of leadership, character education, and building resilience in youth.
Before coming to Regent University, Dr. Arroyo was a teacher and administrator in public schools. He specialized in Special and Alternative Education. Dr. Arroyo continues his contact with public and private school systems by forming partnerships with them. The faculty, with Dr. Arroyo’s encouragement and support, also has involvement with national professional organizations as well as state and federal education agencies.
Carlos Campo, Ph.D., became president of Regent University on August 1, 2010. He joined Regent as vice president for academic affairs in 2008, following an impressive 20-year career in higher education. Since joining Regent, Campo has led a Regent University team through its most recent successful accreditation process, leading to full accreditation from the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools—an accomplishment that has strengthened the university’s academic standing and stature.
A much sought-after speaker, Campo delivered a keynote address entitled "American Higher Education’s Greatest Challenge" at the third annual “Encuentro,” held at Virginia State University, March 2010. In May 2010, he delivered the commencement address at the International University in Vienna, receiving an honorary doctorate.
Campo is a four-time recipient of one of academia’s most coveted recognitions, “Who’s Who Among American Teachers,” an accolade that is student-generated, recognizing a professor who has had a significant impact on the nominating student’s life. He holds a Ph.D. in English (Drama Emphasis), a Master of Arts (English) and a Bachelor of Arts (Theater) from the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
