New York City Recap


In March, Jeff and I traveled to New York City with about 50 Triad students and staff to take the Gospel to NYC campuses.

We had a myriad of great Gospel conversations. Our students we surprised and encouraged to find how easy it was to talk to student in NYC about the Gospel. They are so open, willing to talk and listen, and honest about where they are at spiritually. We spoke with a ton of students with different backgrounds-Jewish students, students who grew up in a religious home, students from the other side of the world, homosexuals, strippers (one who gave her life to Christ!)-the majority of whom wanted to hear about Christ.

As our students take new steps of faith to pray, approach strangers, and share the Gospel, they grew in their faith and trust in the Lord and passion for the lost. When we returned to the Triad, a revival of evangelism swept our campuses! The number of students helping with UNCG's weekly evangelism outreach doubled and our High Point students began doing Soularium on campus and taking other students with them.


We also took a crazy bus trip, chowed down on yummy street food, ate at a Chinese-Mexican restaurant (yeah, we thought that was weird too), saw In the Heights on Broadway, and visited the Museum of Natural History and the Met. Jeff also caught a Knicks game with the guys. Needless to say, we returned home worn out, but it was all worth it to see God at work and develop deeper relationships with our students!
