We just love partnering with churches to make disciples on college campuses! Jesus said, "The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields." (Luke 10:2) Our prayer is that the Lord would raise up churches to reach the college campuses near them.
Our experience on multiple campuses has shown us three wonderful truths:
We had the privilege of meeting with Jonathan, a youth and college pastor in Santa Barbara at a church near the college. We made the 12 hour drive from Sonora to Santa Barbara and back home... in one day. And it was SO worth it!
We found in Jonathan a kindred spirit - a passion for disciple-making and a heart to reach the campus. And a desire to see his church continue to grow in their missional / disciple-making effectiveness.
We look forward to going back in the coming months to go on campus with Jonathan and others from his church. We look forward to seeing God do an amazing work at Santa Barbara City College. We are so incredibly thankful that the Lord would invite us to be a part of it.
Pray for Jonathan. Pray for his family. Pray for his church. Pray that the Lord would bring about spiritual renewal at Santa Barbara City 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.
