Oh how wonderful it is how the Lord works! About a month ago, I was thinking how wonderful it would be to have a student going with me to Hancock College in Santa Maria to do evangelism and disciple-making there.
Then last week I was visiting with Dylan, one of the Cuesta College students I am discipling. As we were finishing our meal together, he casually asked me what I was up to the rest of the week. I told him, “Tomorrow I get to go down to Santa Maria to do evangelism on campus at Hancock College.” He immediately asked, “I’m free tomorrow; can I come?”
Dylan so enjoyed our time on campus that he went back to Hancock with me the following Wednesday and helped another student lead a Bible study on campus - about 6 students met in the cafeteria to study the Gospel of John! He also insisted that we take our picture-spiritual-survey and go mobile to talk with students about Jesus (pictured above).
Dylan now plans to come with me every Wednesday throughout the semester. Praise the Lord for the work He is doing at Hancock College and in the life of Dylan!
There is so much spiritual hunger on campus at Hancock College in Santa Maria! The reason won’t surprise you: a handful of local believers have been praying - even doing prayer walks on campus. Two of these prayer-walkers are Carol and Jim.
A local college pastor connected me to Carol. I was sharing with her about what I do on campus for evangelism and disciple-making, and she readily accepted my invitation to come check it out. She has been coming on campus weekly ever since! (You can see her doing the Soularium spiritual survey in the picture above).
And Carol invited her friend Jim to join us. Jim leads the evangelism and disciple-making ministry at the small satellite campus in Lompoc.
Praise the Lord for the fruit at Hancock:
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.
