At the beginning of this semester, students from across Texas along with brothers and sisters from Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Louisiana, came together at the University of Texas at Dallas for a time of fellowship and strengthening.
The theme for this year’s campus retreat was ‘Unleashed,’ and the mentality to unleash our hearts and lives for God was echoed throughout the individuals that were able to participate. Individuals who have a heart for God and also the passion to call us all higher to preached the word of God powerfully.
One of the most exciting things about this event was the number of students that were in attendance. In 2014 we were so excited to have 220 students from our Lone Star Region come together and worship. Yet just one year later, we were blown away by God and were amazed at the 350 students that participated in this year’s event.
Saturday night ended perfectly-with a student giving their life to God. Saphora Berhane, a student in the Dallas East Campus Ministry, was baptized into Christ. Since then all campuses ministries have already seen more friends added to the Kingdom.
‘Unleashed’ was a huge success. The unity among the campuses ministry is strong and the mindset to seek and save the lost is being lived out all over the Big South. We cannot wait to see what God will continue to do.
