Prayer, partnerships, and pressing into God’s future together
The past 18 months have been filled with challenges and lots of changes, but through it all at Georgia Southern Wesley we have heard the call to become a more vital and vibrant community for our students. This year Wesley came together for moments of community, discipleship, and worship, and it has been a joy to see God impact the hearts and lives of students on our campus. Our work this year has been to provide a caring and Christ-centered community in the midst of all of the changes that are swirling around our students.
This fall our students organized a night for prayer for Afghanistan, Haiti, Louisiana, our campus, and community. We gathered at Sweetheart Circle, at the center of our campus, and saw students lift their hearts in praise and band together for prayer. Their prayers are moving us to spend our spring break serving in Louisiana to put our prayers into action to bring relief to people’s hearts and lives in Jesus’ name.
This year we partnered with a new fraternity on campus, BYX. BYX, or Brothers Under Christ, is currently using Wesley as their primary weekly meeting location. This partnership has allowed us to impact even more students and has helped us create bridges to serve our campus and community together. It’s our hope that this is the first of many partnerships that build unity in the body of Christ and increases our impact on campus.
We also partnered with TMS Global to beta test an exciting new discipleship curriculum that will help equip our students to be missionaries in their own culture and context. Throughout this past semester students have learned about God’s mission, their role as disciples in growing God’s kingdom, and how they can share their faith right where they are. We are excited to continue this partnership with TMS Global into the future by sending students into missions at home and around the world.
At Georgia Southern Wesley we are committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ through community, discipleship, and worship. While we don’t know what the future holds, we know that our future is held in God’s hands. We believe that we can face any challenge that comes our way through prayer, partnership, and pressing into God’s presence.
