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!
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!
“Will you teach me how to share my faith?”
I love those days when the Lord reminds me, “This is exactly what I created you for!” This past Wednesday I got to experience one of those days. I had the privilege of spending the day in Bakersfield. Here is a summary of what happened:
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.
