I am heading out to Chicago early this morning. I will be concluding the “Taking Up the Challenge” sermon series today. Not only have we been focusing in on evangelism and discipleship, but today I am going to share about the greater vision for Chicago and reaching out to various campuses within the city.
I always enjoy my trips out to Chicago because I get to reconnect with the staff. It is always great hanging out with them over a good meal or coffee and just talking about life and ministry. I love envisioning and strategizing the future with them.
On this trip, I will be meeting up with the key leaders for the UIC ministry. They have started a small group ministry this year and it has been going well. We are going to be talking about getting things prepared for a future site on the campus of UIC. We realized that it is an enormous harvest field on this campus. God is truly preparing the way for us. It is humbling to know that God is giving us the privilege of reaching this campus for His glory.
