“It is true that God may have called you to be exactly where you are. But, it is absolutely vital to grasp that he didn’t call you there so you could settle in and live your life in comfort and superficial peace.” -Francis Chan
Being at Southeastern, we are constantly exposed to the reality of people’s need for the gospel. Most of us are here seeking to be in full-time ministry…eventually. The fact of the matter, as Francis Chan puts it, is that God has called us to be where we are so that we can join Him in His salvific mission now. Yes, it is easy to become victim of the Southeastern bubble, especially as exams are approaching. But it is important that we do not forget our primary calling as disciples of Jesus Christ: exposing the lost to the gospel. If you’re a college student seeking tangible opportunities to share the gospel and become engaged in the lives of the lost, we invite you to join the Missionary Formation Society on May 1st at 7 pm in the Jacumin-Simpson Rotunda. Come and hear from local brothers about ways to engage refugees, sojourners, and international students.
Andrew Castle, the Executive Director of World Relief Durham, will be speaking about ways to help refugees in the area. The Triangle is an area that the U.S. has selected for placement of refugees back into society, and Andrew initiates the help that these people need in order to be placed back into society comfortably. Sammy Joo has served as the international student ministry coordinator in the Triangle Area since 2007, and will be sharing about ways to get involved with international college student ministry. Bryce Burk is involved in ministry at North Wake Church and will also be informing students about opportunities to serve sojourners.
Details:Thursday, May 1, at 7pm in the the missions building, Jacumin-Simpson Rotunda. Cookies and Coffee will be served.
The Great Commission Studies (CGCS) is the hub of Southeastern’s Great Commission efforts, helping develop students and faculty members who are Great Commission servants of their local churches. The CGCS serves the Southeastern community in four major areas: academics, research, mobilization, and convention relationships.
