Summa Summa Summatime!

Greetings from my new house!

That's right my friends!  Well..not really my house..I am sharing it with five other guys because, well, that's just the life of a campus pastor.  Group living has always been a positive experience through my years in FOCUS.  The accountability, friendship, responsibility, and discipleship of group living throughout my years in campus ministry have been extremely beneficial!

My future roomates and I! (From left: Matt, Laurence, Charlie, Chris, and Dan)  All these guys are students in our ministry and commited disciples in our ministry.

We just got back from SICM a couple of weeks ago (I hope the majority of you got your post cards) and it was such a great experience! SICM (Student Institute of Campus Ministry) is a week long campus missionary training conference in Washington state that hosts students from all over the country and trains them how to be effective missionaries while they are in college and beyond.

This was a positive experience in building relationships with the other student leaders and taking time as a FOCUS staff to meet with and seek wisdom from the campus pastors in Washington who have been doing this for over 30 years!

Our students on the plane arriving in Washington.  Excited to be there  - can you tell? :)
Summer has arrived and it is time for Summer FOCUS to begin!  All of our campuses are meeting up and praising God with one another on Thursday nights @ 7:00 PM! We had our first meeting last week and I had the honor of leading worship with our students (see photo below)

Going to be an awesome summer!


I decided to come on staff full-time this upcoming school year with FOCUS!  I need your prayers for guidance and wisdom as I enter this school year.  I will be taking on more of a leadership role and will need to fundraise again this summer!  Thank you all for your support - I couldn't do this without you :)

Your brother,
