It is the coolest thing to get a text from my friend (college pastor in Bakersfield) that says nothing... it is just a picture - of his students doing evangelism on campus at Bakersfield College.
I was there the previous week showing them how simple and effective the Soularium survey is in discovering spiritual interest on campus, and now they are doing it without me.
I love this king of 'missing out'.
Pray for pastor Kyle and his student leaders to see lots of fruit on campus at Bakersfield College!
Last spring I drove to Bakersfield to meet Kyle, a college pastor in town. Kyle and I had a great time talking and dreaming together about how he and his church college group could multiply disciples on campus at Bakersfield College; we also got to go on campus together to do some evangelism.
Fast-forward to last week… Kyle had me come back to do two days of evangelism training for his students on campus at Bakersfield College. Here are the highlights from my trip:
There are well over 100 students in Kyle's college ministry! Some of them also attend CSU Bakersfield and Taft College. May the Lord use Kyle and his student leaders to start multiplying movements of disciple-makers on all three of these campuses!
Pray for Pastor Kyle and his students as they make disciples at Bakersfield College!
About ten years ago, Bob and his family moved to Merced to start making disciples on campus at Merced College. I am so thankful that he discipled me and taught how to more fruitfully multiply my life.... especially on college campuses!
A few days ago Bob and I went on campus together at Modesto JC to do some evangelism, and as usual..... what a fruitful time. As we were leaving campus, we remarked to each other that there is not a single time that we show up on campus and fail to have fruitful connections with students.
Bob surveyed a young man (picture below) who was very interested! Bob taught him how to do a One Thing Study and invited him to meet up again on campus. And Bob also plans to take him out to lunch sometime soon.
Oh how amazing it is to me (still... after all these years) that college students are so hungry for Jesus and for relationships with those (even old folks like me and Bob!) who would invest in them.
"The harvest is great,
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.
