Fellowship: Jesus invited his disciples to go out and preach the Word. It’s easy to simply talk about faith, but what does it mean to walk with His disciples as they try to figure out how to be in a deeper and better relationship with Christ? This Digital Campus offers an opportunity to get to know people who are trying to be better at reading the Bible, at spending more quiet time with God, and at connecting with other Christians through real relationships. We can talk authentically about what we’re going through, about our challenges and dreams, and about what we’re hoping to get from this space. Ultimately, we are all created in the image and likeness of God, and I hope that this Digital Campus will allow us to reenvision how to love our neighbors.
Engagement: One of my absolute favorite pages on Instagram is Humans of New York. (If you have not checked it out, I encourage you to do so.) The beauty of this page is that it invites people to share their life experiences, and what’s amazing is how so many people can connect to those stories from different angles. That’s what this Digital Campus is going to offer us, an opportunity for us to share our own stories, stories that we find meaningful, stories that tell parts of our lives that we don’t often share. Sometimes you can walk with somebody for years without really knowing them, and yet this Digital Campus space is not a place to perform who’s the best “Bible reader” or “worshipper.” It’s a place to get to know each other as human beings, from the nitty gritty of your childhood to things that make you laugh, from your day-to-day experiences to who you are as a human being beyond work, class, or church. We want to see you for the beautiful creation that God created you to be.
Worship: The Bible calls us to worship God in spirit and in truth. This Digital Campus is a space for us to really hear how the Spirit is calling us closer to God. Join us on this journey if you’re looking for a different way to worship God through your own talents and your own interests.
Email me if you need somebody to hold your hand, to help you figure out some of the big questions, and—more importantly—to enjoy being in company with the Lord who has called us to salvation and redemption and joy.
I can’t wait to begin this journey with you.
