Greetings to you as we enter the holiday season! We love this season of the year, partly because we begin to see some of the fruit of all the hard work that goes into starting the school year – especially on campuses all around the nation. Our movement launching training course is still under way. About 20 Epic or other CCC staff have finished with another 15 set to wrap things up shortly. It’s been fun to get feedback of how this training and process of leadership development is translating to new movements launched on the field, new laborers for the Kingdom, and new believers!
“Since the beginning of the training, we as a team have seen significant steps to launching movements. We have been apart of 3 movement launches. But the confidence that the training has given our team has been very useful when considering whywe launch, and how to do it. We are continually thinking of how to launch on other campuses and plan to launch 3 more movements before January. We’re excited about what God might do through these 6 movements, and consider it a joy to be a part of what God is doing.” — Epic Staff Member, Univ. of Texas
“A couple of us were meeting a student leader from Columbia and she said to Lara (Epic Staff, NYC). ‘Recently when you read from Luke 10 & 11, it was like God said very clearly to me about that I need to go into ministry when I graduate (Internship). It was very powerful how God used His word and what you said.’ Later I asked Lara how it felt to be so clearly used by God. She laughed a bit and said that she loved it! Then, she went on to say that she had gotten inspired through the class and had felt a very strong motivation about communicating what she had observed from Luke 10 & 11 from that assignment in the class. — Epic Staff Member, New York City
Obviously these are difficult economic times. We want you to know we’re praying for you – for God’s peace and provision. Some have asked about how we are doing in light of these realities so we want to give a brief update and also let you know how you can help us if you are in a position to. We have lost about $400-$500 in monthly support over the past 7 months which is significant for us. That adds up as the months go by. God has been faithful to provide some of that loss back in the form of some generous one time gifts, but the need is still there. We are trusting the Lord right now for $5000 in one-time, special gifts right now to
help with the immediate impact of this loss of support and for $400 in new monthly support.
If you are in a position to, please pray about joining our time financially or even increasing your current commitment. We’re so energized by what God is doing right now among Asian Americans and all college students and we’re thankful for the opportunity to trust God with you for new believers, new movements, & Christ-centered leaders.
In this season know that we are extremely thankful for the Lord’s provision, His guidance, and for your partnership and generosity. We appreciate you!
In His Name,
Morgan & Colin
