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

April Ministry Updates

Hey friends!I hope you are doing well. This past weekend was Spring Showcase our annual fundraiser we put on each year to help send student to the Student Institute of Campus Ministry in Bellingham, Washington.. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to all who gave and for coming to the event. It was such a success and we are so excited to use this money to help fund some of our students trip. If you didn’t get a chance to enjoy Spring Showcase here’s a video from one of our students a couple years ago, click here. It’s the sweetest video!  I will be traveling with the June students this summer making this my 4th time going to SICM. I’m not tired of it yet, that’s how great it is!This year we have four students from Richland that are going to SICM this year. If you weren't able to come to Spring Showcase but would like to give towards their trip you can do so here. Their names are Claude, Reni, Kobloh-Obase, Josue Corzo. :)

Hey Friends!We are halfway there! How?!This past month we had our very first Richland Fall Camp and it was such a blast! We packed 24hrs with worship, Jesus, hot chocolate and a lot of Dutch Blitz (my new obsession). For the past couple of years, the Richland ministry has been very close-knitted to the UTD community and we have been very used to having Fall Camp with them. It was definitely a little intimidating planning and having our own weekend but we felt that it was time for our ministry to have their own camp. I’m so thankful we did because it brought our Richland community closer together. Giving you a play by play of the weekend would take too long but here are some highlights of our weekend together. For our first session, we kicked off the weekend by hearing from three of our leaders as they shared how community has impacted their lives and where they think they would be if they had not found a Jesus-centered community. Listening to them was such a testament to what God has…
Hey team!I can’t believe the school year is officially over. What a year! This past week has been full of end of the year festivities, encouragements, and even some tears. As I reflect back on the past school year, God has been so sweet to me and our ministries. This year has been one of tremendous growth for our staff, our leader team, and our student body.
I asked three Richland ladies the following “How has God been faithful to you this school year?” I was so encouraged by their responses that I wanted to share them with you! Side note: They were so excited to be featured in this months ministry blog.This is Reni! I get to meet with Reni weekly to study the Bible. She is a deep-thinker, honest, and has such a hunger to get to know more of Jesus. She is also an amazing singer!
“God has been so faithful to me this school year. He has always been with me but starting college I never felt more blessed in my relationships with my professors and companions and even my school work. God has…
