Convocation 2018

News

Point University held convocation to celebrate the start of the 2018-19 academic year on August 22. For Point, convocation is about more than simply marking the start of classes, it is a time for students, faculty and staff to come together to worship the Lord and establish a mindset of unity for the duration of […]

Hope: Discovering Life through Engaging the Body of Christ

News

Chapel this week is all about discovering life through engaging the one Body of Christ. Before coming to Point, I didn’t realize how important community was to my relationship with Christ. After coming here, I found a group of believers that I was able to build relationships with, which helped me understand the importance of […]

HOPE: Discovering Life by Engaging Cultures

News

The chapel topic this month is “HOPE: Discovering Life through Engaging Culture.” This topic is rather pertinent to me considering last spring I spent five months working with a campus ministry called Canvas in Nottingham, England. On the outside, England may seem like a European America, and while the two are similar, England is a […]

Helping Students Find their Place in the Kingdom

News

Every year I make sure I am either mentoring a student or leading a small group of students. I do that for a couple of reasons. I suspect that deep down I’m just an old campus minister who still gets excited to invest in a student and to watch what God does in their life. […]

Day 14: The Body of Christ

News

You don’t have to look far to find a diet or exercise plan to help you take care of your body. People have a lot of different motivations to eat better and get more exercise, and whether you are trying to lose weight, live longer, or look younger, it takes both a cognitive and a […]

Day 13: Working with God’s Grace

News

“Whatever the activity in which you engage, do it with all your ability.” -Ecclesiastes 9:10, NIV Not too long ago, I referred to myself as a flower planted in the crack of a driveway.—planted in a dysfunctional home environment with no fertilized soil for my roots to take hold and spread. There was no sunshine, […]

Day 12: A Recovering Perfectionist

News

I am definitely a recovering perfectionist. In high school, I would stay up super late the night before any project was due to make sure everything on my tri-fold poster was just right. I had a “goody two-shoes” social life, as well. At school and even when I walked into church, I felt the pressure […]

Day 11: Have Courage

News

I love running into burning buildings. The smell, the darkness, the heat, the battle. Apartments and high rises are my favorite. The bigger the building, the bigger the fire, the bigger the battle. It’s easy to do my best while on duty. In other areas of my life, it isn’t always as easy. You see, […]

Day 10: Lead Up

News

This past year our youth ministry staff had to submit a yearly budget proposal. This was the first time our church asked the staff to request a budget for the year. I and my teammate began the process of collecting data from the past two years. We gathered stats that included attendance, commitments to Christ, baptisms, new […]

Day 9: A Leader for Christ

News

I never really thought of myself as a leader. I just did not have that bold, out-front, in-your-face personality that I associated with leadership. I was more of a laid-back, wait-on-instructions, and follow orders kind of guy. Then, I encountered 1 Timothy 4:12: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but […]
