I know, it shouldn’t be called a ‘retreat.’ It should be called an ‘advance!’ We had about 20 Faith Bible Church students from Merced (UC Merced and Merced College) come up Memorial Day weekend to The Sending Center. The focus of the weekend was spiritual renewal / disciple-making. It was fabulous.
The highlight for me was sharing with these students about how simple and effective it can be for them to share the Gospel on campus and disciple other students. We taught them some very simple tools to discover spiritual interest on campus…. and some very simple tools to follow up with interested students (a very simple way to read the Bible, for example). Many of these young men and women are looking forward to having us come on campus with them this fall to show them how to do spiritual surveys. We cannot wait to see the Lord build a movement of disciple-makers at UC Merced and Merced College!
Please pray for UC Merced and Merced College… that the Lord would raise up students to reach these campuses with the Gospel!
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.
