Auburn Campus Ministries Team Plans Year
Campus ministries at Auburn Adventist Academy spent the summer planning, preparing and praying for a new school year, and rolled out new ideas while continuing to support spiritually successful activities.
The leadership team began by expanding to include two chaplains: Jeff Carlson and Jennifer Woody. As spiritual leaders, Carlson and Woody are focused on helping students learn to be thinkers in the Word instead of mere reflectors of what others tell them to think.
"This year is a call to be focused and united in Christ — a call to claim the victory in Christ, to let others see that Christ is in us changing our lives, and to be intentional about praying for our school," says Woody.
New ideas include Sabbath School integration with the local church. This gives students a chance to feel a part of the local church community while giving the community an opportunity to get acquainted with students.
Power-packed weekends will combine powerful speakers with contemporary Christian artists to lead the school in spiritual growth and revival.
The academy is continuing to include a 10-minute daily worship period during which students, teachers and staff take time to intentionally pray for the school and spiritually connect with one another.
Campus ministries works throughout the year to facilitate ways to meet Jesus daily to help unite the campus in Christ.
