What happens when students begin thinking about others?
Last Fall, we started with about FIVE student leaders at WMU and KVCC. They weren’t well-trained (yet). They weren’t comfortable. They weren’t bold. But they were beginning to be others-centered.
During our beginning-of-the-year picnic, two of these students sat down on a blanket with their hot dogs and drinks. As freshmen wandered by they invited them to sit down with them. After a half-hour, the blanket had spread out to thirty people—all talking and laughing and getting to know each other. They were others-centered.
What’s the result of others-centered Christ-followers on campus?
- A weekly meeting that triples its size from last year and grows through the course of the year.
- 100+ students in small groups who are studying the Bible together, praying together, and living life together.
- 50 freshmen who have committed to being trained during their sophomore year—to walk closely with God, and to impact others for Christ.
- Students exposed to the Gospel… coming to Christ… growing in faith.
There is a tremendous outlook for Western for the future. We have a ton of sophomores to train & we are praying for them to become spiritual multipliers for their remaining years in college and in life. Can you imagine the impact of FIFTY others-centered students who are truly devoted to Christ and His Mission on campus? God is moving at WMU!!!
