Last month I had the joy of going on campus at Bakersfield College with Pastor Kyle and his intern, Haley. And what a fruitful time! We shared the Gospel with several students and taught them how to do One Thing Studies. The highlight for me was seeing Kyle and Haley (pictured above) engage with students while I just watched from a distance. I get to go back to Bakersfield in the next couple of weeks and help train more students (from Kyle's college group) in evangelism and disciple-making on campus.
I am continuously amazed at the spiritual openness on campuses all over CA!
There are 2.1 million students on 113 community colleges in CA alone!
Pray for Pastor Kyle as he continues equipping students to multiply disciples at Bakersfield College, Taft College, and CSU Bakersfield.
There are pastors like Kyle near every community college; please pray that that Lord would connect us with them!
Thank you for joining us!
I saw on Facebook today that Pastor Manny went on campus again yesterday at Fresno City College! He took Jake with him; Jake is associate pastor at Manny’s church. Manny and Jake did a Facebook Live video about their experience. Jake noted that he was so impressed by the spiritual openness on campus. In his own words: “my mind was blown.”
Pray for Manny and Jake… and their church! Pray that the Lord would give them the privilege of seeing students come alive to the mission of disciple-making. Pray for a discipleship movement at Fresno City College!

Last week I was able to go on campus with Pastor Manny at Fresno City College to do some spiritual surveys. We talked to five students, and four of them them expressed interest in meeting up again with Manny! In the picture below, you can see Manny sharing the Gospel with a student. He then taught him how to do a One Thing Study… and then prayed with him.
The next week I was unable to join him, but Manny went on campus with his associate pastor to show him how to do spiritual surveys as well. It sounds like it was another very fruitful day! Pray for Manny as he continues to make disciples at Fresno City College.
The Yorks are passionate about bringing the Gospel to the nations - especially the unreached of the world (those who have no access to the Gospel). They are convinced that the greatest impact they can have in reaching the unreached is by multiplying disciples on college campuses and equipping churches to be missional disciple-makers.
