Students are the ministry focus on Georgia campus

By October 11, 2012

USA (MNN) — William Draper with The Mission Society works with the Wesley Foundation on the campus of the University of Georgia in Athens. The foundation is engaging students where they live.

"We're one of many campus ministries on campus, but we want to have the ability to draw in any and all students."

They do that through special meetings, small groups, and more. Draper says for Christians, their goal is development. "That's going to take place in the form of prayer meetings, discipleship, leadership in our internship program, and finally we want to launch them to lead someplace else."

Draper says 200 have gone into full-time missions in the last 10 years. While this is tangible, it isn't always that way. "There are also students that we'll never know the impact that we had. Sometimes it's us sowing the seed."

Draper is asking you pray that the Holy Spirit will go before their staff, that they'll be fruitful, and that the university and the city of Augusta will be awakened.
