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 introduced me to new friendships that have aided me in my confidence. One thing I have always been struggling with is knowing how to love myself. This year I have become a better performer through the opportunity in FOCUS to worship at TNT. I’ve learned to put the same compassion I put into others into myself which strengthens my relationship with not only my dear friends but God.” - Reni

This is Rinsy! Although Rinsy is only 18 she is wise beyond her years. Rinsy is such an example of what it means to love God and love others well. I’m so thankful that we get Rinsy for another year the women in our ministry are so blessed by her.

“One thing I have learned this year is that life can only get better when you have God in it. It is amazing how such a perfect being could love such an imperfect person like me. I have not just tasted this goodness of God this year in my life, I have had a whole meal. He has showered me with so many blessings and made my burdened heart light. His way works, and His way is the best. No love compares to the love of God and I am so grateful that He chose me to show his love to.” - Rinsy

This is Sayuri! Everytime I talk to Sirak (my pastoral supervisor) about Sayuri I get teary-eyed because she has been such a blessing to me and has given me so much life. She is such a light wherever she goes and our ministry is so much more kind because of her. It has been such a blessing getting to meet with her weekly to study the Bible. She is from Angola and I’m so sad she’s leaving me for the summer but I know that next school year she is going to be such a blessing to the women’s side of the ministry. 

“God has been faithful to me this school year in the way that he opened many doors for me and allowed me to never feel alone or misplaced. I learned methods to develop a closer relationship to God and life in Christ. Moreover, I also learned not to act based on my emotions and always be patient and trust the process.” - Sayuri

God brought these three students into our ministry this past year and we are so thankful. I'm also so thankful for you and your generous heart. I wouldn't be able to be on campus full-time doing ministry if it wasn't for your giving. This is just a glimpse of some of the things God is doing in the lives of students. It has been a great 2018-2019 school year. This summer we will continue having our fellowship meetings on Thursday nights with all of our FOCUS ministries our kickoff is the 23rd! Pray for our summer meetings. Thank you team!

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 friends! I can't believe we are only a few days away from the first day of school! This summer has been great and all but I am definitely SO ready to be back on campus a lot more and I’m especially excited to meet new students. We still have so much to do as a team before classes begin. In the next few days we will be nailing down our student leader team for both Richland and TWU Dallas. We have so many great students that we are considering for leadership this year and being a corefa is a big commitment, pray for the staff as we have these final conversations but also for the students as they consider whether to lead for the school year or not. 
GO THUNDERDUCKS! The first week of school at Richland College we are on campus five days away for long hours meeting students, playing games, telling them about our ministry, setting up time with those students throughout the week and it can be a long and exhausting week. Every year is the same and every year I forget to spend time pra…
