Student Ministry | November

Student Ministry LogoWe are almost completely in the middle of the Fall semester!

Football & Volleyball playoffs are heating up, basketball is on the horizon, and end of semester band and choir concerts are being scheduled!

In Student Ministry, we’re excited about what God is doing and how many of our students are being challenged!

Remember to check out the Family Devotion Link we included below 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 in CONNECT. 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.

We want to make sure that our students realize that we don’t just support them on Sundays and Wednesdays, so if they have upcoming activities please let us know because we would love to try and support them!

Be sure to follow us on FACEBOOK VVCC Student Ministry & TWITTER VVCC Student Ministry because we post regular reminders about whats going on!

Thank you for the opportunity to work 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!
