Fall Kickoff Monday!

Here are some of the students and staff praying for the outreaches and Gospel conversations we anticipate next week. Monday and Tuesday at UNCG students will be giving away tacky sunglasses (yes that is a desirable gift LOL!), sports bags and this year...even homemade cookies! Our church has partnered with UNCG to provide a little homemade love (cookies) to draw students over to our tables.

We just returned from a three day training retreat where UNCG students learned how to initiate Gospel conversations, lead Bible studies and trust in Christ for the movement. They have a huge passion for reaching their campus! We can hardly wait to see what God is going to do this fall!

On the campus, for the campus

BSaLT tomorrow

Well we love a good acronym don't we?

BSaLT is the name of our Bible Study (a) Leader Training.  It is of course a double meaning to subtly imply that our Bible study leaders be the salt and light that Christ calls us to be.  I (Carra) am currently preparing to lead a session on explaining the Gospel and how to follow up with a student who is interested in spiritual things.

If I could pick any topic to train right now, it would be that topic!  As I am preparing my session, one premise I am operating under is that they just don't know...... When we dialog with unbelieving students, they typically know a lot of peripheral information about Jesus.  But they most often do not know what it really means to follow Christ and give your life to Him.

So here I am - it's almost midnight and we leave at 9:00 a.m.  I've been pondering this topic for more than a week but just now getting down to the typing.  Please pray that our student leaders would be filled with the Holy Spirit, filled with passion to reach the lost and prepared for the battle that wages over the hearts of men and women.

That all would know Him,
Every campus, every person,
