Over the summer Olivia and I had the opportunity to join my mom for a week of vacation at a timeshare of hers in Oceanside. It was a wonderful, relaxing week.
It occurred to me while there, though, that there must be a community college there; I began to wonder if anyone was there making disciples. I decided to look into it.
Discipleship Movements on every college campus.... that is my life vision these days.
So I made a phone call to a church near the college and talked with the youth pastor, Jonathon. A few days later we were meeting face-to-face talking about disciple-making and reaching Mira Costa College (and the other community colleges nearby) with the Gospel.
We decided to go on campus a few days later to do spiritual surveys, and it was wonderful. We had some great conversations!
Soon I was heading back up to Northern CA, but Jonathan and I have kept in touch.
I just got a message from him that as he was spending some in prayer this morning, the Lord made it clear to him that he just needed to get back on campus and do some spiritual surveys. He did. And he had a wonderful half-hour conversation with a young man. It sounds like they might even end up meeting again.
Pray for Jonathan.
Pray for the Lord to continue to bless his ministry.
Pray for the Lord to give him great success and fruitfulness as he makes disciples.
And please pray that the Lord might even use Jonathan to be a catalyst for a discipleship movement on campus at Mira Costa 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.
