Our student ministries department believes that the message of the Gospel is the most compelling message that has ever been delivered to this world. It’s power for life transformation is something that works it’s way through our own lives and then sends us out into the world. Christ’s mission was to “seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10).” We believe that our mission now is to take up the mission of Christ as he sends us out to seek and save this lost world. Armed with His truth and the empowerment of His Spirit, our prayer is that God would use every one of our students to work with Him in the redemption of this world.
This year, our outreach theme is “Feed The Hungry.” Along with several other service opportunities for our students, we have highlighted three main service oriented outreaches that will allow our students to provide food for the poor. Our hope is that they will realize God’s heart for the hungry and the broken.
Matthew 25:35,40 “35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat… 40 Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
