My friends!

The Spring semester is in full swing and so many cool things have happened this past month. I’m in awe of God’s work throughout our campus ministries and especially the Richland campus. I hope you are blessed by the latest details of our not-so-little anymore campus ministry.

Thursday Night Thunder or TNT - of course we had to come up with a exciting name for our weekly fellowship meetings. This semester we kicked off our weekly fellowship meetings on the Richland campus. We are only a few weeks in and each week we have had over 50 students attending. Our students are really excited about having a fellowship meeting of their own and I have seen them take ownership of TNT by inviting students, helping with setting up, and engaging during the sermon and bringing energy into our time together. Please continue to pray for our students and staff as we are on this journey of growing and maturing as a ministry!

Winter Camp - I say this every year, but gosh this camp was my favorite one yet! We had the privilege of hosting Dr. John Stackhouse (Theologian and Professor at Crandall University) and over the weekend he spoke to our students on how to be a Christian while also confronting the culture of our time. I was so blessed by his wisdom and thoughtfulness when teaching us. He was also such a trooper and led two Q & A’s for our students, answering a WIDE variety of questions, it was such a blessing to our students. If you’d like to give it a listen click here.

Core: One of my favorite things of my week is getting to lead a core (our weekly Bible studies) at Richland. I was a little scared we were going to lose momentum after being on break for so long but that was NOT the case for our girls. If anything, some of my most quiet ladies have been sharing and opening up more during core. Our discussions are deep, honest, and vulnerable. Jesus is moving in these ladies and weekly I see how the scripture moves them and challenges them to be more like Jesus.

My team, thank you for your love, support and prayers! I am truly so blessed by you all. I’m honored to get to serve God on the college campus and although they are a little wild, I sure do love them! Enjoy the pictures!

With Love,
Sandra Salvador

Hey friends! 

I apologize for being MIA last month. The busiest time of the school year for ministry is now over and now I get the chance to update you on all of the cool things that are going on at Richland. Be prepared for lots of pictures!

Our Cores

Cores are our ministries small groups that meet throughout the week on the Richland campus. In core we study the Bible, build deep relationships, and invite students from our campus to come join us. This year I get to lead with one of my favorite girls Kobloh-Obase or KB for short. :) This is KB’s first year leading in any sort of ministry role but you wouldn’t even know if you saw her lead, she is such a natural! KB is so good at reaching out to people, making them feel loved, and she is just so fun. I love getting to co-lead core with her. We are a few weeks into core and it’s so exciting getting to see friendships being formed. The girls come each week ready to talk about Jesus and share their lives with another. We usually tend to star…
Hey team!
Winter Camp
We are a week away from our annual winter retreat at Sky Ranch, woo! This year our camp theme will be Psalms! Throughout the weekend our sermons and worship will reflect the different themes of the Psalms. Be praying for our students. For safety driving to Sky Ranch, for attentiveness during sermons (open hearts and open minds), pray that new friendships will be built and that they look out for people, pray that the Spirit will refresh them and that the students will be excited and ready to serve their college campuses. We don't want money to ever be the reason why students don't come to camp so please be praying for our Richland students! 

New Decade

We are now 9 days into the new year. Hopefully you are still going strong in all of your New Year's Resolutions! If you're so over all the new decade jokes and comments I'm sorry but NOT because I have been reflecting some on the new decade. Ten years ago I was a lost freshman at UNT looking for lov…
Hi friends! 

Richland Update.
We are in our final week of "regular" class. Finals start next week, is that not so wild?! This semester has flown by! We have our Christmas Party and last Thursday Night Thunder of the semester this Thursday. We have requested school funding for Winter Camp 2020 in January, please join me in praying for the Richland staff that will be approving our money request. Camp cost is $125/person, this is a lot of money for our students and the school giving us funds will help bring the cost down significantly per student. We won't let anyone miss camp because they don't have the money to attend but having a lower price is a great incentive. 

The month of November our ministry went over the book of Ephesians. A big need we see in our community is that our students don't spend much time reading and studying scripture. For our Thursday nights we took time to read through entire chapters out loud to each other. We would then have discussion questi…
