In August, 2013, we started All Nations Columbia College. We started by simply setting up our Soularium Survey Table (a spiritual survey using pictures). Within the first 15 minutes, a few students (Elias and Emelie) came by to take the survey. Their answers were so spiritually profound that we knew immediately that Elias and Emelie loved Jesus. I'll never forget what they said:
"I'm so glad you are here on campus! We've been praying for something like this!!!"
It is wonderful to be an answer to prayer.
Elias and Emelie have been actively sharing their faith on campus ever since.
And Elias and Emily are just a few of the many students that have connected to our club on campus. In the two years that we have been at Columbia College, we have had about 30 different students at various times involved in campus Bible Studies.
School starts up again soon! Please be praying for disciple-making at Columbia College to thrive this semester.
Pray that the Lord would open hearts to Him.
Pray that God would give students a hunger for REAL life that is only found in Jesus.
Pray that the Lord would fill us with His love for other students as we seek to discover spiritual interest on campus. Pray that the Lord would connect us with more Eliases and Emelies... students who want to learn how to share their faith and disciple others.
May the Lord bring about spiritual renewal at Columbia 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.
