Loved David Schmus "Groups, Clubs, & Campus Ministry"--perfect for what God is calling me to do.
The summit has come at the most perfect time. I am struggling with numerous things right now, and am feeling under attack. In my daily devotions, the reading today was in Daniel 2. Tonight when I tuned into the summit, the speaker shared from Daniel 2! In the midst of my chaos I am comforted that God does have a plan.
The session on legally living out my faith in school was incredibly informative. Knowing my rights while respecting my school's culture gives me confidence in interacting with my students, families and fellow staff.
