On Wednesday, October 21st at 10:00am the second annual Get Linked Conference gets started in Rainey Fine Arts Center.  The conference is designed to get you (yes , you!) connected with a solid camp or missions organization this summer.   Why sit and eat Hot Pockets on the couch when you can be trekking with shepherds in India or wakeboarding in Seattle?  Plus you get paid!  Camp life and mission trips around the world are breeding grounds for personal growth and change in your life.  Yes, you can work at the local ice cream shop and date your girlfriend on the weekend, but is that really changing your life or even better- are you changing anyone else’s life?   Do not miss this opportunity to Get Linked to some of the best camp and mission sending organizations in the country.  Pick up an application and some info from the tables in Merritt lobby following chapel and have brunch in the cafe.  Come back by if you have questions at dinner.  Let’s go beyond!  If you have questions visit our website.

NYC Orientation TOMORROW!!!!!!

(All Posts, Missions) Permanent link

Can't believe we will all be here together finally tomorrow night!!!!! Can't wait to see you all- just to make sure we're all clear, we will meet here in Sullivan at 8:30pm for an orientation meeting. Sullivan is the last building on the front drive, right past the tennis courts. After the meeting, you will be able to go to your dorm and attempt to get sleep- remember, pack a separate bag to get you through Thursday night and Friday- your suitcase will be UNDER the bus locked up!! We will get up EARLY Friday morning, breakfast at 5:30 and we will be driving out of here at 6:00am. I will have sandwiches for everyone for lunch Friday and we will have to stop to grab something REALLY fast for supper so that we can hurry up and get there! Once we get to the hotel, we will be able to go back out together and explore a little bit before we crash for the night. Don't forget to bring snacks- to say it will be a long bus ride is an understatement!! Greg and I are so excited that you have decided to spend a week of your summer with us as we prepare to serve the people of NYC! See you tomorrow!!!!

New York City Uprising (6-16-09)

New York City Uprising Update



This afternoon I spent some great time praying with the leaders of City Uprising via a conference call. Our time together was challenging and encouraging at the same time. We were challenged to the fact that stats need to become people. As the AU City Uprising team makes our final plans for this fantastic mission opportunity, let me challenge all of us to focus our prayers towards the following three areas.


  • First, pray for the specific needs in New York City.
    • We will be working with over thirty HIV clinics in the city. There is a huge gulf between the HIV community and American Christianity. Pray that during our trip we will see God close this gulf through His love.
    • Pray for the public school system in New York City. Our community work will be focused on two of these schools, but there are great opportunities for ministry and sharing the Gospel message in one of the oldest and largest school systems in the United States.
    • Pray for the people we will encounter as we move around the city. There are large Jewish and Catholic communities who have little knowledge of or faith in Jesus Christ. Pray for openness to the Gospel.
    • Pray for Greg Cruz, a new believer who is HIV positive and wrestles with the darkness of homosexuality. Pray for him as he walks in relationship with Christ and grows in faith.
  • Second, I ask that we would pray for one another.
    • So far, we have only been able to communicate on Facebook, this blog and a few phone calls. Pray that our hearts would be knit together by a greater purpose than ourselves. Pray for the glory of Christ Jesus to shine through and guide us as we meet next week.
    • Pray for our team and the other teams coming to New York. Pray for our travels as groups come from Georgia, Texas, Tennessee and accross the nation.
    • Pray for each individual on this trip to hear a mighty word from God.
  • Third, Let us pray for the Vision behind City Uprising.
    • Pray for Pastor Aaron Coe, his family and his team as they prepare spiritually for this event.
    • Pray the scripture Jeremiah 33:9, that God would propel the Church and prosper the City.
