Continue to pray for our summer missionaries as they continue to serve. Pray that they can share the Good News with everyone around them and that they can be examples of Christ and His love. Pray for strength and endurance as they serve these last few weeks.
From Andrew in Maine – Pray for the people to have open hearts and for them to see that we are here to build a relationship with them. Pray that they can can see Christ in us.

How many years have you been a collegiate minister? 6 years
Why you do what you do: It is fulfilling to know that I can have an impact on a student’s education by helping them to learn and grow holistically. I value the “Ah ha” moments and the ability to see a student grow from a freshman to a senior. These are the highlights and the fuel to push on and fulfill my calling as a minister.
The most encouraging aspect of collegiate ministry: Seeing growth in the college students that I interact with.
Prayer Requests: That I continue to push myself and to grow in my desire to know God more. That I can influence the lives that I interact with here at Carson Newman. That our BCM will be something that people not only need but say that they can’t imagine college without it.
