Where we're at so far...
Wow, it's hard to believe October is already over! These past few months have felt to both fly by and last ages at the same time, but it's all good. This last month has left me pretty tired, but that typically happens to me towards the tail end of each Fall Semester by combinations of strings of long days and the changing weather. Our ministry is still in full swing and we're constantly meeting new students on campus that are eager to engage in new friendships with others. In addition, our small groups are still meeting together and I've personally seen God changing hearts and minds to look more like that of Jesus which is super exciting. Even though we haven't been able to partake in many big events, I've been learning the significance of one on one discipleship and being faithful with what God has given me.
Pictured here is our "Corefa Team," or you can just say small group leader team. All the guy student leaders meet each week to discuss how our small groups are going and to have spiritual discussions. The meetings are lead by our senior staff in which the girls also meet each week but we find it more efficient to split into guys and girls to talk about things that are more geared to either gender. Altogether, we have 7 guy students leaders and 4 staff guys.
This last weekend, our guys met together outside and watched a live-streamed leadership conference that our church put together. This was to encourage and foster leadership among our team and we invited people in our small groups to come that we thought would benefit from hearing about it themselves. In it, we heard from pastors and other leaders in the community about how to lead well and what steps we could take to get there.
