Giving Tuesday: The Year’s Most Generous Day

Giving Tuesday: The Year’s Most Generous Day

As someone who grew up outside the continental United States as a missionary’s kid. Thanksgiving was to me an event where my mother desperately searched around for our nearest fellow Americans and invited them to a very complicated dinner at our house that may or may not have included pumpkin pie made with carrots. It was a delicious, roughly six-hour affair, not including cooking and decorating time (which all took place on Thanksgiving Day, if they took place at all)….

Four Days at Fullerton

Four Days at Fullerton

After four days of events, two guest speakers, and countless slices of pizza, Fullerton Union’s week of Breaking Down Borders has come to an end. God has done such amazing things on this campus, and I am so glad our team got to be a part of it! Yesterday was the last event of the week: they had the youth pastor from Thanksgiving Church, David, come share the gospel during lunch, and thirty-two students came and got to hear about…

Witnessing, CSP Style – Fall Training Weekend 2016

Witnessing, CSP Style – Fall Training Weekend 2016

Yesterday, I talked a little bit about an example of campus objective #1 (reach every student) in action. But, what does that mean? Do we really think we can reach every student? Actually, yes! CSP’s goal is to share with as many students as possible and to achieve that we encourage clubs to reach out in three specific evangelism strategies, which basically means three ways to share the good news of Jesus with students on campus:  Witnessing, rallies, and materials…

Ministry Year After Year – Fall Training Weekend 2016

Today, during FTW, Caleb Morin, a current Student Leader in Kern County Chapter, shared with us a story he felt blessed to witness. It’s a story of one of his fellow Student Leaders in Kern County: Micah Yursik was coached by the California School Project (CSP) when she was in high school. During that time, she passionately desired to pray with, encourage, and share the Gospel with every student on her high school campus, and, with CSP’s help, she worked…

Dedicated to the Gospel – Fall Training Weekend(s) 2016

Perhaps recently you heard that the 2015-2016 school year was the greatest year of ministry the National School Project (NSP) has ever seen. Perhaps you heard that this year we’re building on that momentum and partnering with people all over the country to pray for God to do even greater things. Yet, you might have wondered, other than prayer, how can we achieve these greater things? Well, at the heart of NSP is the coaching and mentoring relationship between a…

Encouraging One Another – Student Leader Training 2016

Encouraging One Another – Student Leader Training 2016

Today’s blog post is brought to you by Sean Luke, an Illinois School Project student leader serving at the Wheaton College Chapter: In Isaiah 6, the prophet Isaiah finds himself in before the throne-room of Yahweh, the God of Israel. There’s smoke everywhere, strange angelic creatures shielding their faces, and a throne… and on the throne, a king. In fact, this king is the King of kings. When Isaiah sees this King of Glory, he bows down in holy terror; he…

A 9:5 Job – Student Leader Training 2016

A 9:5 Job – Student Leader Training 2016

Today’s blog post is brought to you by Kyle Bafia, an Illinois School Project student leader serving at the Moody Bible Institute Chapter: Sovereignty is a powerful word in our secular world. To those in power, it conveys the idea of power, affluence, and national advancement. But to the weak it is often a different story; its restriction, imposition, and assimilation. But there’s a sharp contrast between these two worldly perceptions and the true sovereignty of God! When under God’s…

Mission Possible – Student Leader Training 2016

Mission Possible – Student Leader Training 2016

Note:  It is not required, but highly recommended, that you listen to this while reading this post. There are a lot of things in the National School Project (NSP) vocabulary. Things like enthusiastic audacity, anticipated zeal, unceremonious kerfuffle, and “cool.” One word that is not in our vocabulary, however, is “impossible.” That’s why during SLT this year we’re sending out ten mission trips to cities all over the Midwest. These mission trips, affectionately nicknamed Mission Possible, are to connect with…

Can I get a witness? – Student Leader Training 2016

Can I get a witness? – Student Leader Training 2016

Why does the National School Project exist? To be a witness to the life-changing message of the love of Christ! Specifically in the public high schools. But in order to be a powerful witness there, we try to always be reminding one another of the innate joy of witnessing and the love of Christ that drives us to share. “Let us consider how to stir one another up to love and good works.” Hebrews 10:24 “For Christ’s love compels us,…

The 30 Second “Why” – Student Leader Training 2016

The first full day of Student Leader Training (SLT) started out with a bang as we had a game of the Amazing Race to break the ice, get used to talking to strangers, and begin to get excited for being together! By the end of the day, the excitement of the first ever National School Project SLT was palpable as we got to hear stories from both the Illinois and California state teams. Also today, all the student leaders had the opportunity to…
