It is our Fall Kickoff time again! Not only are we kicking off our Campus Life and City Life ministries at our 29 sites here in our five counties, but we are celebrating the addition of a new ministry site as well!
The other day, I was reminded of the power of a "nudge" by the Holy Spirit. Ten years ago, I responded to a nudge to introduce myself to an 8th grader named James. Little did I know this nudge would become a relationship that would eventually grow, and he would ask me to baptize him! I recently had the privilege of reconnecting again with James, who just completed a year of witnessing on the streets in California. He will complete his degree this year, and then he will begin his career in ministry. I am thankful for our ministry staff, who respond to nudges like these without knowing their actual impact on the Kingdom. How many more students like James are out there waiting on the other side of your obedience to respond to that "nudge?"
September 11, 1991, we began our official chapter affiliation with Youth for Christ USA & Youth for Christ International. For 30 years, staff & volunteers with Youth for Christ have been acting on their nudges and developing authentic Christ-sharing relationships with lost students. In July we announced we were responding to another nudge by adding India as our 30th site for our 30th Anniversary. This new partnership with YFC International and India allows us to not only partner financially, but more importantly, it will help us grow and learn from each other. I firmly believe this partnership will make us a better chapter, better ministers of the gospel, and more capable of fulfilling the mission God has placed on our hearts to #ReachtheEvery.
We are thrilled to be a part of the thousands who have been positively impacted by this ministry and the hundreds who have made the life-changing decision to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior over the past 30 years. We could not have reached these youth without your support. When you support us, you are partnering to bring transformation to a generation that desperately needs to hear about the love of Christ. Our goal is to raise $30,000 for our 30th Anniversary and all funds raised will support the ministry at all our sites.
We are beyond thankful for your partnership and we are eager to see God's impact now as He uses our chapter throughout our five counties and India!
As always, Gods Got This!!
