February Ministry Updates

Hi friends and family! I can't believe it has already been a month, these 28 days flew by so so fast! I am so grateful for you guys and the work you do, so that I can go out and be on the college campus. I am praying for you all and hope life is treating you well. This month was filled with so many fun events, I can't wait to share them with you. 

Colder Days

At the beginning and the end of the month we had a couple snowy and icy days. I am super grateful I get to live with two of the other apprentices and a student. Then in our apartment complex two other pastors who are married live here so we spent part of our day fellowshipping and sledding. Then we got to take the time to do virtual ministry and do homework for class. My CORE met online, as well as our TCC service.

Our ministry hosts an annual fundraiser to help raise money for our students going to Student Institute of Campus Ministry (SICM). It is filled with performances from FOCUS Alumni, and current students. This year like all the other years was so fun and showcased some of the many talented people in our community. We had a woman who dressed up like Dolly Parton and performed 9-5, a Guns n Roses tribute to open, and then an amazing Beyonce cover! All of this along with selling art and concessions goes to help raise money for our students. If you are interested in watching the show still and were not able to, you can go to this link below, and watch for free! I would also like to encourage if you feel moved to make a donation to our SICM funds for our students, but 0 pressure. Our ministry is already so grateful for the many ways you already give!

Final Performance from Showcase


I have begun this semester our New Testament Foundations class. It is so exciting! Last semester we read through the entirety of the Old Testament, and we now are reading through the New Testament. One thing that is so unique about this semester is that the theological professor who we listen to lectures of from the seminary college in Canada called Regent. He is zooming in with us for an hour long Q and A every week. This is an incredible opportunity! We get to ask him any questions we have about scripture and theology, it is such a valuable resource. I feel so so lucky that he wants to spend that time with us.
