He’s On the Move – San Jose Outreach Immersion 2017

He’s On the Move – San Jose Outreach Immersion 2017

My name is Andrew and I am a San Jose Student Leader who had the pleasure of co-leading the San Jose Outreach Immersion Trip with Laura. As I look back on this week, I see a week full of plans changing, speaker rescheduling, meeting new people, and little sleep. However, the underlying factor through it all has been noticing God working in the city of San Jose. Leadership has taught me to focus on leaning on the Lord and trusting…

It’s Just the Beginning – Washington Outreach Immersion 2017

It’s Just the Beginning – Washington Outreach Immersion 2017

The Lakes High School Fellowship Club accomplished so much this week. They put on four rallies in their P.A.C. Beginning on Tuesday, they went out every lunch and shared the good news about Jesus as well as promoting the rallies they would have after school. With each rally the club leaders gained more confidence in themselves. The first rally began the week with three of the leaders sharing their testimonies and opening the conversation of transforming your identity in Christ….

Vision for ‘Fellowship’ – Washington Outreach Immersion 2017

Vision for ‘Fellowship’ – Washington Outreach Immersion 2017

I got the awesome opportunity to interview a couple students and ask them how their witnessing went when they were in their schools and they were sharing the gospel to their friends. First off was Savannah Morrow. She is a tenth grader at Lakes and a club leader for the Fellowship club, she started off this year as really shy but throughout the year as they were planning the week she began finding her footing and her voice. I asked…

Transformation Week at Lakes – Washington Outreach Immersion 2017

Transformation Week at Lakes – Washington Outreach Immersion 2017

The Fellowship Club at Lakes High School is awesome. This is their first outreach week and they chose the theme “transformers.” The student leaders’ tenacity and willingness encourages me and my team. In the face of adversity these students rose up against it. For example, the first rally the guest speaker cancelled last minute. In order to address this issue, one of the leaders, Kyla, was tasked with coming up with a message about identity with a day’s noticed. She rocked it!…

Welcome to Washington – Outreach Immersion 2017

Welcome to Washington – Outreach Immersion 2017

My 2017 began with a trip to the beautiful state of Washington. For me that meant waking up at 2am to make it the airport. For others driving was involved, but it was all worth it. This week for our Washington Outreach Immersion four Californians and four Washingtonians are coming alongside Lakes High School for their Outreach Week. Washington Campus Mentors Bonnie and Nate have been joined by Seth, Jeremy, Hannah, Coral, Amber, and myself (Gigi). Why Washington? Washington is the…

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…
