Unprecedented Excitement at Western Michigan You Haven’t Heard About

Western Michigan University is an exciting place these days.

You probably have heard about the Broncos Football’s unprecedented undefeated season and ESPN College GameDay’s visit to Kalamazoo.  We saw thousands of college students turn out in snowfall to be a part of the excitement of what’s happening on the gridiron.

But you may have not heard about the exciting movement God is creating on campus.  Our ministry of evangelism and discipleship – since 1962 when Campus Crusade for Christ started here – at larger than it’s ever been!  Unprecedented!

Our Thursday weekly worship is bursting at the seams.  Our student-led and staff-led small groups are thriving and new people are asking to join in each week.  The Maze outreach saw us pack Miller Auditorium with 1,300 students – where over a thousand heard the Gospel.  As we follow-up from the outreach, we are hearing about God changing lives. Exciting!
