Our giving system is changing
What's the change?
We are switching over to a new giving system on June 5th. Therefore, all supporters who give online via eCheck or a credit/debit card will need to re-establish their giving profile and schedule on the new system starting June 5th.
What do we need from you?
You do not need to do anything until June 5th...
I’ve been an intern for Campus Outreach off and on for about a year and a half. As one season of interning winds down, I find myself wishing I could stay and I end up asking for more internship opportunities. It’s joyful to know that the work done in the office is helping the gospel go forth. The cherry on top is that I get to work with the resource team, comprised of truly wonderful people.
The last blog I wrote was about this year’s CCP team. I spelled out the what, where, when(ish), and why.
But what about the who?
It’s time to introduce the 2014 CCP team!
CCP stands for “Cross Cultural Project.” Every year, CO Minneapolis sends a small team of students and CO staff overseas for part of the summer. For the past few years, the location has been India. The teams would spend time building relationships and sharing the gospel with college students on a campus in New Delhi. Last year, there was an additional team sent to Lebanon to explore potentially expanding Campus Outreach to a college campus in Beirut.
There are only eleven weeks left until the start of the Summer Training Project.
Before we know it, those of us who are Project-bound will be standing on the beach in Garden City, South Carolina, watching the sun set on another sultry day in the south.
Did you catch that?
A few weeks back, Matt Bradner and Julia Bradner talked to the CO staff team about family and marriage. In addition to personal benefits the individuals gained from attending the training, the staff was able to use the talk to foster healthy team dynamics among themselves.
The odds of hanging around Campus Outreach events and students involved in CO and not hearing “Project” dropped every so often are slim to none.
Every summer, students from St. Thomas, Bethel, Northwestern and the U of M pack their bags and drive down to South Carolina for two months.
Conference is pretty intense.
For countless students, the Milwaukee New Year’s Conference is their first experience doing anything with Campus Outreach beyond a weekly Bible study.
And often times, Conference is when the rubber meets the road.
When, “I am investigating Christianity and this ministry,” transforms into, “I want to be part of this movement to build laborers on the campus for the lost world.”
