Today is my "final" interview withInterVarsity Christian Fellowship. We are meeting at Wayne State in Detroit. I am excited, yet nervous. I am confident that God has led me to this specific ministry, at this specific time. As a college student I was involved with Campus Crusade for Christ, another campus ministry. CCFC helped me to grow in my faith and see that God's church was larger than my own denomination. The worship was great and I made so many good friends. The three years after I graduated, some friends and I led worship for CCFC at Lawrence Tech. University. I enjoyed my continued involvement with them and continued to grow in my faith as I stepped into areas where I was outside my comfort zone.
InterVarsity is a similar type of campus ministry, but it has a special significance for a couple of other reasons. You see, my father-in-law and mother-in-law were saved through it and my sister was brought back to the Lord through it as well. College is a testing of the new freedom that students feel, since they are on their own in a new environment. They question, rebel, seek their own identity, set goals, pursue passions, develop vocations, create new relationships and test beliefs. I desire to be an instrument of God to help guide them on their journey of faith. And I believe God has called me to "such a time as this" to "make disciples of all nations..." What better place than a college or university campus to fulfill such a call. Students gather from all nations at the campus.
HERE AM I, SEND ME, SEND ME!
Today, as I go to the interview I am nervous, yet I am excited to be on the adventure that God has called me to. Even in my childhood, I knew that God was calling me to ministry and architecture. Ministry is the primary focus, but architecture has enhanced the way in which I carry out my task at hand.
I pray that as I head on this journey - that you too will join me in partnership in sharing the gospel. Not everyone is called to full time ministry, yet everyone is called to participate as God has gifted them. After all, we are the body of Christ!
I will share more after the interview.
Here you will find updates, thoughts, discussion and prayers for my life and ministry...
