Georgia church reaches out to students
The theme of the recent event at Simpsonwood Conference Center was “Higher Power for Higher Learning,” using 2 Timothy 1:7 as the theme Scripture, said Shoi Smith, an Emory University student.
Topics addressed included ‘The Christian’s Response to Hip-Hop,’ ‘Using Your Degree for God’ and ‘Borrowed Faith: A College Epidemic.’ A gender-split session addressed ‘Winning the War on Sex.’
“From start tofinish, the weekend was packed with activities, including icebreakers,devotionals, workshops and a banquet,” Smith said. “In fact, the level of focusand desire that the students had for learning more about God’s will for theirlives was impressive.”
Smithadded: “Generally, students were not there to flaunt the latest fashions orplay love connection. They were there to serve the Lord.”
