JUST A NOTE | Thoughts from Pastor Scott Owens

I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. - John 10:10

We had a big weekend! We had an awesomely, amazing, wonderful weekend!  Remember camp? Remember some youth conference or adult conference that you went too?

What was so good about it?

I am going to dare to say it was what God did in you or in others that made you want to worship him, commit to follow Him or to run towards God with more passion and heart. When we have weekends away with students it is fun to be in a hotel room and hanging out together. The worship is amazing and the speakers share insightful things. We take goofy pictures and play weird games in the car ride and all of that comes together, but the glue I believe makes it all come together to be an amazing time is… when we give God time to speak, He shows us something we needed!!

When you are seeking for God to give you an answer, provide a need or just seeking Him speaking…doesn’t that come a lot when we give Him time to speak? This weekend we had 21 students and 8 adults go to Duluth and spend three days with 3,000 other students worshiping and celebrating what He has done. It was a blessing to see the students grow and I loved the conversations we had. Most importantly I love the 6 students that made first time commitments to follow Christ. CAN I GET AN AMEN?!!! 

We were without distractions, we spent time with God, they read their bibles, worshiped many times in the days, prayed over and over. SO, what made this weekend so good?

The band was better? The speakers prayed over their messages better? We forced our students to pray? We made sure they didn’t talk to any non-believers? No No No No No… We gave Him time to speak. 

I pray that your student desire to let God speak into their time.

I pray that your student gives Him time and they see the fruit of that immediately.  

Thank you for letting me minister to your students and alongside them in reaching their friends, our community and the world for His glory.
