As some of you may know, Campus Outreach Raleigh partners with The Summit Church in Durham, NC. This means our staff are considered Summit Church staff as well as Campus Outreach staff, and Campus Outreach Raleigh is under the authority of The Summit Church. Our students regularly attend Summit Church services on Sundays and have reaped many benefits from sitting under the teaching of JD Greear. Currently, we are going through a sermon series called Sent. Sent is a series that travels through the book of Acts to investigate what the early church looked like and how our church should look similarly. We have learned about the boldness of the early church, how the gospel is for all people not just Jews, the foundation of the early church, and much more. This series could not come at a better time as seniors have been challenged to be “sent” after college and are now meeting with God to make the decision of where they will go. At the end of November, they will give us their final decisions. Please pray for guidance and wisdom for these seniors as they decide what they will be doing for the next two years of their lives.
While seniors are still deciding what the next steps will be, some of our graduates are preparing to actually begin their commitments. In January, five graduates that were members of Campus Outreach during college will be going to Kenya for two years to reach students that go to college in the surrounding area and seven graduates will be moving to Southeast Asia to accomplish the same goal. I am confident that the culture of The Summit has highly influenced these decisions. The Summit does a great job of challenging college graduates to do something for the kingdom of God. We are so thankful to have a church that wants to see people grow with God and also send them out to tell others about the love of Christ. Please pray for The Summit Church as they continue in this mission, and pray for team unity and spiritual and financial provision for these teams as they take a step of faith. Below is a picture of the 12 graduates that will be sent out in January.
