We love college students

Barton2 “…encourage the young…” (Titus 2:6 NIV).

This past week has been busy for us as we welcomed the Barton College students back! We joined about 60 businesses and nonprofits on Monday as we ran a booth for our church at the Wilson Chamber of Commerce’s “Welcome Back Barton” day.

We gave away PopTarts and fridge magnets (with our church info) to a huge crowd of students. It was great getting into spiritual conversations with college students and letting them know that we care about them.

Barton1 Who knows what will come from this? College students are at a life crossroads. They are so open to change. I believe that it is mission critical that we offer them encouragement to follow God at this strategic time in their lives.

Later in the week, it was my privilege to speak at Barton’s Campus Crusade for Christ weekly gathering. Stephen and Daniel led worship and I spoke. In a room full of students (especially freshman) we talked about how they could know God’s will for their lives.

I love encouraging college students to give their lives to Christ and devote their future to Him!
