STOP XENOPHOBIA

In the first half of this year we have had two very different yet turbulent events that have brought a lot to the fore for our students. These have been the UCT “Rhodes Must Fall” campaign and then the national Xenophobic attacks. They have highlighted for us the challenge this generation faces to have love, wisdom, courage and faith to speak into secular ideas of national transformation with the truth of Biblical transformation. It has been a weighty time speaking into these situations and feeling the gravity to have to respond and disciple hearts.

We held a panel discussion for the UCT Campus Ministry to equip students to interact with their peers on issues related to these incidences.

#iMustToCan_Campus Ministry 2015

New Year, new beginnings!

“What can, must happen, in Christ!” (Phil 4:13) is the theme for campus for 2015. We are trusting God for new ground as we are on a mission to change the campus, change the world.

 

 

We began the year by preparing for the two most pivotal weeks of our Campus Ministry calendar with prayer and a Missions Camp, where we prayed and planned for the coming two weeks.

This was definitely the most fun I have had in my 10 years as a campus minister on missions! We reached many students and had lots of fun…

The amazing 'Step Up Conference' where returning students were equipped to apply their faith to their studies and future vocations!

The amazing ‘Step Up Conference’ that we hosted in partnership with LIT (Leaders in Transformation) where returning students were equipped to apply their faith to their studies and future vocations!

We were astounded by the 360 students that were connected into small groups and the many students that became Christians over the orientation period!

Now it’s on to the everyday pleasure of working to form Christ in these future leaders of society; establishing them in the faith and raising leaders!
