NNE 2014 Fall Conference

The big news of October was certainly the InterVarsity Northern New England Fall Conference. This was a particularly notable year for us, as we gathered a record-high 150 attendees from Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts for a weekend exploring faith, Jesus, and community.

Fall Conference is always an exciting, strategic weekend that builds significant momentum towards the success of on-campus ministry efforts. Two years ago, I was able to bring a total of 3 students from SMCC. This year, I was thrilled to bring the students pictured above, all but 2 of whom were brand-new to the event. Seeing the continued growth in our community is humbling and rewarding.

I would be remiss to avoid mentioning that 2 SMCC students made significant, public decisions toward placing their lives under the Lordship of Jesus for the first time. The wonder and mystery of spiritual conversion is truly exciting, and I remain honored to be part of the process for these young adults!
 
As I close this update, I would simply mention that I am looking to raise about 5% of my ministry budget over the next several months (about $3000). If you feel so led, please click here to donate to this ministry.

Much love,
Joel

Count on it - there's more joy in heaven over one sinner's rescued life than over ninety-nine good people in no need of rescue. (Luke 15:7, The Message)
