Student Ministry | October

Student Ministry LogoOur Fall semester is up and running!

Football, band, and volleyball are rolling, and CONNECT Wednesday Nights are getting in a groove!

Don’t forget to check out the Family Devotion Link for a page that will give you as parents the opportunity to dig deeper with your student and family on what we are studying every week. Save the link because it will lead to a new page every week!

I found a couple of articles to help you as parents – check those out in the related articles section below!

Remember to let us know if your student is involved in Fall activities because we would love to try and get out to support them!

Thank you for the opportunity of working with your student!

About the Author

Posted by

I'm originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, but call Cooper, Texas, where I graduated high school, home. I am the oldest of fifteen siblings. (Yes, I said fifteen) I am my mom's only biological kid and the only white kid in my family! In 2002, I married the most amazing woman in the world and in 2012 God blessed us with, in my opinion, the cutest little boy ever created! I've been in vocational ministry since 2001 and after thirteen years in student ministry, God has brought me to Norman, Oklahoma as the Lead Minister of University Christian Church before that I held ministries in Oklahoma and Texas. I received my B.S. from Dallas Christian College and my M.A.R. from Liberty University. I love Jesus, people, Texas Tech, reading, watching movies, basketball, and learning about culture. I have a passion for reaching people with the love of Christ and seeing them in turn change their worlds with that same love! So that is me in a nutshell, my life has been anything but normal, but I wouldn't change it for the world! Along the way, I've lost parents & siblings, been on top of the world, had it all come crashing down, & hit rock bottom, but through it all God has had a plan and has helped me see that I am His son who He loves and because of that there is no reason to fear or worry or stress. He's got my back! Bottomline, I am just someone who loves this adventure of life with its ups and downs & is trying to point people to a Savior who love us more than we can imagine!
