2. How deep are your roots?11/13/13 12:59 PMFriends-Our desire is to involve an increasing number of graduate students and faculty in missional campus communities. In dependence on God, we intend to grow the area's ministry footprint to touch the lives of more than 550 graduate students this year--maturing disciples, new converts, returning believers, you name it. The academic and professions are intense. Heck, life is intense. In the midst of the storm, we long to see people rooted in the love and goodness of God in Christ. Below you'll see a brief overview of our foci for 2013-2014--discipleship, evangelism, and partnership. These are the things that we believe God is calling us to. At the end of the ministry year we expect to look back and see how God has used us to positively impact graduate students and faculty with the love and grace of God. All of the details of this plan belong to the Lord, and we're trusting him with them. It is, after all, to his glory!
