Our Capital Region students lead out in Outreach at the Epicenter 2012 conference
Kailee and Becca are two of our students involved in our movements at local campuses in the Capital Region who attended our Epicenter Experience conference in Albany this week. They both experienced some great opportunities to reach out to students and other people right here in the Capital Region with 288 other students at the conference on Wednesday afternoon of this week. Some students served at the Homeless Shelters and some looked for ways to start spiritual conversations on campuses and in downtown areas. Kailee and Becca share their stories below from the stage of the conference! We praise God for their steps of faith and especially for the young man who works at Dunkin Donuts who received Christ!
Thank you for praying for and financially supporting this ministry so that we, together with you, can be a part of investing in the lives of students for the King’s eternal purposes!
By His Grace each day,
Lately it has been cool to use a new tool in ministry with college students: Skype, a video chat program that is very popular amongst college students. It often seems in our world of busy schedules and lots of travel that students can be really busy and carving out a half hour or more to get coached can be tough sometimes. Most people using email are already on Gmail, a popular email website, which automatically comes with video chat capability too, called Google Talk which is integrated right into the sidebar when you are checking email. These opportunities save time, gas, and are more fruitful than a simple phone call that doesn’t necessarily show the facial expressions we all use all the time when talking with people. Thus far, John has been using it more this semester than ever, video chatting with 3 or 4 students in a week, sometimes. Of course it will never rival the face to face experience, but it does get close! We are grateful to use technology to help us win build and send students for Christ!
