Camp Logos is the title affectionately given to our two day (or three day if it's a Camp Combo), hands-on seminar in which we teach you to practically use many of the features of your Logos Bible Software. Most of our Camp Logos seminars cost $225.00 to attend with a Camp Logos syllabus and refreshments included.
Your Bible software, with all of its power and potential, can be intimidating to learn. Where do you begin?
You’ll learn that using Logos Bible Software is a lot like flying an airplane. You can set it to auto-pilot allowing the plane to fly itself or you can take full manual control of the plane flying it yourself.
The seminar begins in auto-pilot mode as you learn to effectively use your Home Page and various automated reports.
Once airborne, though, you’ll quickly take full manual control of your software as you learn to open and search books and customize your system for the way you study.
If you’re new to the software, don’t be afraid. We patiently show you how to use each feature.
If you’re a seasoned user, don’t shy away from the seminar. There are expert shortcuts, insights, and applications all throughout the seminar that will challenge you and take you to the next level. Hundreds of experienced Logos users said they’ve learned new features in the first hour.

General Outline of Camp Logos - Day Two
Your instructor at each seminar is Morris Proctor, the authorized Logos and Libronix trainer. Here’s his story in his own words:
I became a disciple of Jesus Christ and teacher of His word through the personal ministry of my good friend and bestselling author Robert Morgan. In the early 80’s Rob began instilling in me a love for the Bible and Christian books, as well as a desire to study and teach Scripture effectively. I, therefore, dutifully set out to build my personal library of print books. I spent years and thousands of dollars securing many needed resources. As I developed into a pastor - teacher, I spent countless hours in study and sermon preparation.
When the personal computer age hit, I was reluctant to enter the electronic world, choosing rather to stay in my comfort zone of pen and paper. In the late 90’s a friend gave me a copy of Logos Bible Software. Not owning or knowing how to use a computer, the software remained in the box. Finally, another friend loaned me a computer, loaded the software, and instructed me to become proficient with both the software and a computer "for my own good".
After a week of reading the Logos Bible Software User's Guide and "hunting and pecking" around the keyboard, I actually started studying the Bible electronically. I was shocked to discover the profound impact this new method of study had on my Biblical research and sermon preparation. The world of Logos Bible Software allowed me to study and prepare sermons both more quickly and effectively.
I introduced my friends to the software and began teaching them how to use it. I then began putting my software teaching outlines into manual form to develop the first Quick Reference Training Manual.
Through the encouragement of friends I contacted the leadership at Logos Research Systems, informing them of my instructional classes for their software and desire to partner with them to train their users. They invited me to their Oak Harbor, WA headquarters in 1998 to conduct the national Camp Logos.
After the seminar I shared my vision to take this training around the country from church to church, equipping people to effectively use Logos Bible Software. The Logos leadership enthusiastically agreed. In the fall of 1998 the regional Camp Logos hit the road. We named this new training endeavor Morris Proctor Seminars.
For nearly 13 years, I, along with my wife Cindy and also some faithful assistants, have conducted hundreds of hands on training seminars around the globe. In addition to the live training seminars we produce videos on CD and DVD, print manuals, and miscellaneous training materials all designed to help Logos users get the most out of their software
In 2001, as the seminar demands increased, I stepped back from pastoring a church to devote full time to training Logos users. I still, however, maintain a very active preaching / teaching schedule which keeps me in the Bible and Logos Bible Software on a daily basis for my personal use. Before I am a trainer, first and foremost I am a student of the Word and user of the software myself. Hopefully this personal use of the software translates into very practical training for you.
Morris Proctor has a deep understanding of how to use the computer for better Bible study. With his gift for teaching he's able to help pastors and Bible students use their Bible study tools more effectively and to look more deeply into the Word. His classes are so much more than just how to run a software package. Each year we send staff to Camp Logos to learn how to use our own tool better. We are blessed to work with Morris and to have him teaching Logos Bible Software!
There’s nothing out there like it. Camp Logos is unique in its product and presentation; the training I received there has made my Logos Bible Software the most portable and thorough tools imaginable for my own personal biblical studies and sermon preparation. Morris showed me how to do in a few minutes, sometimes a few seconds, Bible study techniques and theological research that used to take hours. I love this stuff, use it constantly, and recommend it whole-heartedly.
I have attended numerous Camp Logos trainings in both Arizona and California. And I go as often as I can. Why? Because Morris is an incredible teacher and I have learned so many practical applications from him every time I attend. Morris has taught me how to use Logos to research topics, words, passages of Scripture in countless books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, lexicons, and commentaries. I learn so many new ways to use this software that by the time I leave a Camp Logos my head is spinning with so many great ideas! As an author and speaker, I spend hours researching and studying for the books and messages I write. Logos is an invaluable tool to help me do exactly that.
Morris' practical, down-to-earth approach to the use of Logos Bible Software was the extra push I needed to lower the difficulty in using this tremendous tool. His gift of teaching, his obvious love for the Scriptures, and his experience as a pastor, all serve to produce an incredible two days of discovery, and delight."
We all reach a point in our lives when we could use some help from an expert. For me, this truth was driven home by my desire to use the computer more effectively for studying and researching Scripture, but I simply didn't have the time, energy or patience to figure out how to do it on my own. Morris Proctor was a God-send. Because he's a pastor and scholar in his own right (and not merely a "tech-head"), he is able to clearly communicate the needed instructional details while simultaneously tailoring his approach to your particular style of study and learning. The results are phenomenal-carefully guided instruction that is personal and personalized.
