Light and Truth spread through Conversations – LA/Orange County Outreach

Light and Truth spread through Conversations – LA/Orange County Outreach

A few months ago, I saw witnessing as an obligation. Yes, we Christians are called to share the Gospel, but fear would taint the excitement. The fear of rejection and the fear of saying the wrong thing was something that I always carried in the back of my mind. There should be joy by just knowing that I get to spread the love of Jesus, but that wasn’t what I felt before. This week started of differently though as I…

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 Power and Privilege of the Gospel

The Power and Privilege of the Gospel

Two weeks ago we shared a story from the South Bay of Los Angeles. The students in that area have become so passionate for the gospel that they now want to make initiative witnessing a normal activity at their schools. (Read about that here) To do that, they’ve been laying plans to train the other Christian students on campus to share their faith with their friends and peers. They’ve been scheduling lunchtime and after school witnessing times where they can…

This week we’re finishing up our series on witnessing stories from the student leader training in Chicago. This story is told by Heather, another student participating in the GAP for God program in Chicago. We were in Millennium Park in Downtown Chicago when Jaston, the Biola Student Director, & I approached a young couple, John & Kayla, soon-to-be college freshmen.

Saying “Yes” to Jesus

Saying “Yes” to Jesus

This story is told by Cassie, one of the students participating in the GAP for God program in Chicago. Brennen, a student leader from Trinity International University, and I were witnessing at Wrigley field and we passed by this 18-year-old guy a couple times. Each time I really felt the Lord tugging on my heart to go talk to him. Again we passed him and finally I said, “We have to talk to that kid right there in the blue.” We told…

Sarah’s Story

Sarah’s Story

This week we’d like to share with you another story from Chicago. This story is told by Sarah, one of CSP’s newest staff members. This trip was the first time I had ever been witnessing, which was incredibly intimidating, but also incredibly fruitful. At the beginning of our trip to Chicago, I can honestly say that I was not excited about witnessing and was, in fact, dreading it. However, after the first short time out talking to people, I was hooked. It was so…

“That sounds good to me!”

Here’s another amazing story of God changing lives through witnessing on the streets of Chicago. This one is from Lisa, CSP Distance Director: On Sunday at the beach, I had the privilege of leading Melissa in prayer to receive Christ. She was there with her young son and I asked if she had some time to talk about God. After a 45 minute conversation about how one can have assurance of salvation after death, and also live a full, abundant…

Witnessing in Chicago

Witnessing in Chicago

Here’s a story from Rich Hung, APU Chapter Director, on his experience witnessing in Chicago: One prayer I was praying every day I was in Chicago was asking God for the opportunity to share the entire gospel every time I went out witnessing. God answered that prayer, and some of people’s responses were: “speechless,” “I’ve never heard it that way,”‘ and “beautiful.” Of course there were many rejections too. But this was something I was already aware of from the…
