“For in Him we live and move and have our being.” – Acts 17:28
This was the theme verse for our Winter Conference in Baltimore, which happened from 12/28-1/1. Over 90 Jersey students and a total of 1200 other students came to study the word, get evangelism training, worship together and serve the city in various way. It was a powerful time connecting with Christ and each other!
I asked a couple of students to share about their experience. This is what they said.
Christian, the student president at New Jersey City University’s movement shared:
“What I most appreciated seeing at Winter Conference is the power of evangelism. I [also] enjoyed the [challenge] of Go, Do, Say, Give. Go where you want me to go. Do what you want me to do. Say what you want me to say. Give what you want me to give. I like how the Lord was emphasized as the main importance of our life. We must listen to what he wants us to do & never hold back.
Praying for the conference & the city of Baltimore was truly exciting & empowering! Seeing all the different people we impacted was inspiring. Some of our group prayed over a woman & the woman’s day was made. That’s what its truly about bringing love, joy, & peace to one another & this world.”
Josh, a student leader at Montclair State’s movement, shared:
“The first thing I appreciated learning the most at Winter Conference was the importance of checking scripture myself. One more thing I learned was how to have an effective Bible Study. During the Diving Deeper workshop, there were several effective tools I was able to learn to implement into my Bible study time.
During the Day of Outreach, I appreciated how we were able to all serve together in groups. This allowed me to connect with others that I otherwise would not have connected with, and also serve the community by presenting flyers for the church we served.
Two new things I would like to apply to the ministry at school are regular Prayer Walks and informal community/devotional time. The prayer walks have been something I tried implementing last semester, but unfortunately did not pan out; however, I think with better planning, we would be able to start doing it this semester.”
We pray this update encourages you! Please pray the new semester would build off this momentum and continue to be fruitful for Christ! Thank you for your continued commitment to us and this ministry.
