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 love and approval in all the wrong people and places. I was broken, selfish, and I was always looking for people to imitate or to impress I was exhausted! Ten years ago in the spring, I met people who loved Jesus and loved me! Because they loved me, I have met some of my closest friends, I led cores, now I get to do campus ministry, what the heck?! I'm so thankful for the last decade and how good the Lord has been to me! If you haven't done so already I encourage you to take some time to reflect on how you've seen God at work in the past 10 years. I would love to hear your reflections!

Thank you for all your prayers and support my friends! The winter break was very restful for me and I'm so ready to start school back up and be back with the kiddos. Enjoy the pictures! :)

Your campus missionary,

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!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…
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…
