“What do Mohammed, Krishna, Karl Marx, Thoth, Newcastle United and Jesus all have in common? They all have followers at Student Life.
We’re a growing community who come together to eat, build friendships, explore the big questions of life and consider Jesus.
“Student Life is an inclusive community meaning we can share Jesus with people who wouldn’t normally come near a Christian group. This is great fun, but we are seeing fewer people respond as those we’re connecting with are starting a lot further away from faith. Please pray for a few people to make a clear and lasting commitment to Jesus which would encourage others to follow suit.
“As the team leader, I have two priorities: the care and development of the staff (five staff and two interns) and sharing my faith with students. There will be big changes on the team next year with one of our interns moving on and two staff applying to serve with Agape in Central Russia doing student ministry with an unreached people group.
“Recently I have turned 40 and much more importantly our son, Aidan John, arrived on 4th
December. We’re besotted and I’m loving being a dad. Please pray for us as we establish a new routine, Ruth on maternity leave and me back at work.
“I am so grateful for your partnership through praying and giving over many years which makes all of this possible. Thank you.”
