Be Still and Acknowledge the Blessings
It has been far too long since I’ve stopped and spent more time reflecting on all the awesome things God is doing in this ministry and with my family. It’s been amazing seeing the new directions we’re going with new campus ministries starting up, new camp opportunities, and more partnerships with the local church. While I could write volumes of God’s faithfulness from the past few months, please allow me to share in as succinct of fashion as I can:
· Our summer camp at UCLA has been so successful that we’re now going to offer a second summer camp following UCLA at UC Davis starting in 2013.
· I am planning to launch 2 different one day sports clinics called power camps in North County in 2013: lacrosse and tennis.
· We had a successful leadership training at Petco Park on September 29 and are looking to launch another training for the North County in November.
· On Monday October 15th, we will be starting the process of launching a new FCA Huddle at Martin Luther King Middle School in Oceanside.
· At Cesar Chavez Middle School in Oceanside, 50-60 students are attending every week and growing. This represents close to 10% of the student body.
· Carlsbad High School has had student testimonies shared every other week so far this year and last week there were 5 local churches represented to support the student body and make connections.
· Calvary Chapel Oceanside has been heavily invested at Oceanside High and El Camino High for 2 years and has now extended the opportunity for me to share with their church about FCA to potentially gain financial support.
· FCA San Diego has hired 4 new staff in the summer and I’ve had the opportunity to do some mentoring of our new staff in the area.
· Current donors continue to create new relationships and are helping me fundraise to provide our campuses with all that they need.
· Coaches ministry is growing on our campuses and both Vista and Rancho Buena Vista are prime to launch a Coaches Bible Study on campus.
· My partnership with North Coast Calvary Chapel continues to foster chances for me to teach on leadership and provide further opportunities for our FCA Leaders to delve deeper into what it means to lead for Christ.
We truly are blessed in this ministry. Thank you so much for your support of what God is doing through FCA and it’s an honor to serve alongside you. Blessings to you today and have a great weekend!
