Stories from Fall Conference

Thank you for praying for our student Fall Conference! This was one of the most fruitful Fall Conferences that I can remember; God was so clearly at work. I could sense your prayers as I taught on Daniel that weekend, and I was amazed by how students eagerly responded to the Word. Here are a few highlights:


56199568-5b84-42c7-814a-dc6b223888a5A student from Longview Community College shared that though she had "accepted Christ" in fifth grade, she had not taken a single step forward in her faith since then. During Fall Conference, as I challenged students to be like Daniel and intentionally seek God in college, she decided to recommit her life to Jesus and to put him first above all else in her life!


Two international visiting scholars came from KU to Fall Conference. The two came from Muslim and Hindu backgrounds, and they were warmly welcomed into our community at Fall Conference. By the end of the weekend, they both excitedly signed up to start attending a Bible study on campus to learn more about Jesus!

As I called students to trust in the God who is ultimately in control, all the Rockhurst students responded. We had a powerful time in prayer, confessing the places where we struggled to trust and asking for a greater measure of faith. By the end of the conference, the students expressed how they felt such peace from God--a complete contrast to how they began the weekend!


Thank you for your prayers for the weekend - these students experienced Jesus because of you! Rejoice with me, for the Lord has answered our prayers!

Post-Fall Conference Prayer Requests

1. Praise and thanks to God for how he called students to respond at Fall Conference! Praise God for the 5+ students who decided to start following Jesus and the many who deepened their faith.


2. Pray for our staff and experienced student leaders as they begin "apprenticing" students after Fall Conference. Pray that these leaders-in-training will be eager to learn how to make a difference for Christ on campus.


3. Pray for our recruitment for the Urbana Missions Conference and for our fundraising as we try to help students attend.


4. Pray for our Prospective Staff Weekend (Nov 17-18), as we invite students and volunteers to consider joining InterVarsity staff.
