October Update!

Friday Night Fellowship is in full swing!  Core groups are up and running! Fall Retreat was amazing! The most exciting thing yet...God has been richly blessing our ministry! 

No matter what life has thrown at us the past few weeks, we have been reminded that God is good and that we are strong when we remain in Him. You wouldn't believe the way things have worked out better than we ever could have planned.  Brandon Worsham was set to speak at FNF a few weeks ago, when he came down sick the night before.  Spur of the moment he planned for us to show a video about following Jesus and then have a discussion.  The student feedback after that event was incredible.  That discussion was building on things already going on in the students lives spiritually.  Luckily Brandon was able to speak the following week on speaking like new creations and that too was perfectly timed right before our fall retreat.

Speaking of fall retreat...
UNT Fall Retreat 2012
Thank you for all that you do to make things like this possible for our students!  We had over 100 students attend this year and almost half of them were coming for the very first time. Students shared powerful testimonies of how God has made them new.  We also heard from some FOCUS alumni, who shared advice for making the most of college as a disciple.  A special thanks to our campus pastor Matt Clark who spent a week reworking all of the retreat plans when he found out that many new students would be unable to come on the previously scheduled weekend.  What a blessing to our students and what a blessing to me that I can be a part of such an amazing community.

Keep those prayers coming!


  1. I had so much fun getting to visit UNT's retreat! It was really neat to see after only being out of that ministry for a year how many people I didn't know! And how many LEADERS I didn't know! That just tells me God is working and bringing more and more people into that community to be blessed and to be taught how to bless others. Keep up the good work!

  2. You're doing an amazing job up there, Amy. Thanks for being willing to drive up and share what God has done in you.
