Hello friend! I grew up in Charlotte, NC and I am preparing to move to Boone, NC where I will serves as the Campus Director for Ignite Movement at Appalachian State University. My heart burns to see Gen Z revived and awakened by the reality of the Gospel. At App State, I will be laboring to cultivate a thriving Gospel community through campus evangelism, discipleship, Bible studies, prayer meetings, and bold proclamation of the Gospel.
I believe that college campuses are ripe for harvest in this generation. While the statistics in Gen Z may sound bad, the Gospel is louder than the statistics. All throughout history, we have seen revival break out on college campuses across America and the cry of my heart of is, “Lord, do it again!”
Why college campuses? Why Gen Z?
Only 4% of Gen Z has a biblical worldview & only 44% of Gen Z claims to be Christian. The average college campus is only about 5% reached for the Gospel. Around 70% of students who enter college “in the faith”, will leave college apart from Jesus. These statistics burden my heart. But I believe that the Gospel still works. Jesus is the only answer for this generation. I believe that Jesus is looking at Gen Z and saying, “the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few, therefore PRAY EARNESTLY to the LORD of the harvest, to SEND OUT LABORERS into His harvest” (Matthew 9:37-38). My response to that call is, “Here I am Lord, SEND ME.” (Isaiah 6:8)
I have previously served as a student leader for Ignite at UNC Charlotte. I regularly preached at Sunday night gatherings, participated campus evangelism, and discipled new believers to wholeheartedly follow Jesus.
In addition, I also helped lead youth and young adults at Vizion Church in Charlotte, NC and served as a Regional Leader for Contend Global: A Global Family of Fasting and Prayer.
The mission to reach college campuses is not possible without your prayers & generous support. Thank you for standing with us to see this generation reached with the Gospel.
I ask as Paul once asked, “Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given to me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the Gospel.” (Ephesians 6:23)
