Hello Friends and Ministry Partners, It's a joy to get to write to you all again!
While I'm sad we are moving into the Christmas break when a lot of our students go home. I'm so encouraged with the momentum we have going into January and how much I see God's goodness being revealed in the lives of each one of these students.
Pictured above is most of our student leader team (3 unfortunately got cut off on the left side) for our last leader team meeting of the semester. Every week this group of students get together to encourage one another, share how God is working in the ministry, read the bible together, and learn leadership principles that will help them in their ministry and every other stage of their life as well. Beyond this each one of these students get mentored by one of our campus pastors in a more personal 2 on 1 context. So each week I get to meet with multiple pairs of these core facilitators to discuss how their core is going but also what is going on in their lives and guide them towards Jesus as they continue to discover who they are and how they want to live. Recently I've gotten to have conversations with students about creating a culture of friendship and discipleship that long outlives their time on the campus. I also got to discuss the profound impact one on one friendship can have on the life of an individual. And helped another young man process how to meet the healthy need of feeling lonely in healthy ways, as opposed to pursuing the meeting of that need through casual, non commitive, romantic relationships. These students are just a snapshot of the larger ministry, but as I see God working in their lives I'm so encouraged knowing that these students are reaching their peers and reading his word with so many other students here on this campus.
