I call him Agape-Ben because he loves the Greek word ‘Agape’ (for God’s love) and uses it regularly as a greeting. I met Ben on campus at Cuesta College last semester. He has been a follower of Jesus for a few years now, and he absolutely loves sharing his faith on campus. So Ben and I have been evangelism-buddies at Cuesta; last semester we went out twice a week doing our spiritual survey and shared the Gospel with approximately 100 students during the semester.
Ben also loves theology, hermeneutics and apologetics. He is so hungry to know more and grow deeper in his faith! He is the one who inspired our informal Bible School that we started this summer.
There is no doubt in my mind that the Lord will use Ben to reach many people with the Gospel (and He already has!).
I often ask myself: What can I do to live most fruitfully for the Gospel?
I have no doubt that the answer is this: Invest in the ‘Bens’!
(THANK YOU for investing in the ‘Bens’!)
I love it when students want to learn how to share their faith on campus! A few weeks ago Molly (pictured above) brought Jared (also pictured above) to our Theology Bible School class at our house. Jared has some disabilities from a brain aneurism he had several years ago, and he wanted to get some evangelism training! I’ll never turn down the opportunity to train students in doing evangelism. So off we went to Hancock College in Santa Maria. During the summer, there are very few students on campus, but we talked to all three of them! What a wonderful time and great conversations. We got to share the Gospel with several students. Pray for Jared to continue growing in His faith. And pray for a growing disciple-making movement at Hancock 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.
