The countdown continues. We are just a few days away from the big reveal of what’s new in MH College, and I promise, you are not going to want to miss this. So, why is this a big deal?
There are 80,000 college students in the Triad. What’s crazy about that number is that every year there is a shifting set of 80,000 students as students graduate and new students enroll. We have only reached a small fraction of this number.
As these students shift, we must remember we’ve seen the Lord do some incredible things in the college ministry over the first five years of Mercy Hill. From three college Community Groups to nearly thirty groups in just four years, college students are being reached. We’ve seen student after student get into the waters of baptism and begin to walk anew with Jesus.
We’ve seen students who went through MH College move overseas as missionaries, join launch teams, leverage their jobs for the sake of the kingdom, come on staff, and lead and serve in the local body.
We look at all of this and celebrate, but we long to see more. What got us here won’t take us where we want to go. We want to see thousands of college students praise the name of Jesus throughout the Triad and beyond. It’s time to equip college students to reach college students because us graduates just can’t keep up with all the trends like we used to. Our desire is for college students to reach their campuses the same way we long to see South Asians reach South Asians.
After lots of prayer and strategizing, we’re about to embark on something new in collegiate ministry. We’ve done our homework and asked the experts. This new endeavor is something that you do not want to miss. Everyone at Mercy Hill has the opportunity to be a part of something big. We are praying expectantly for God to do great things through the new systems we are putting into place.
Begin to pray about how you can plug in through praying, serving, hosting, and sharing the gospel with these thousands of Triad college students. How are we going to do it? Tune in on social media Sunday, or join us at one of our services this weekend for the big announcement.
