Engage 24 – 10/11/2012 What we hope to accomplish at Drexel?

On this Thursday (10/11/12) students who are followers of Jesus Christ will intentionally be engaging their campuses with the story of Gospel that they believe.  Engage24 is a 24-hour period focused on engaging the world with the good news of Christ.  While Engage24 is intensely focused on a single day of evangelism (10/11/12), our mission is to promote a 24/7 lifestyle of evangelism and engagement with the gospel.

As you pray for us at Drexel in regards to Engage24 tomorrow, here are our goals for our campus on that day:

  • Pass out 300 – 500 free food items (granola bars probably) to students at Drexel.
  • Have 50 students that we connect with over the granola bars be willing to take Soularium surveys.
  • Have 10 of those Soularium Surveys transition into deeper spiritual conversation and complete gospel presentations
  • Give opportunity for 10 Christian students to publicly express their Christian beliefs in real conversations with their peers.
  • Give opportunity for 2 Christian students to publicly express their Christian beliefs in real conversations with their peers for their first time.

There are several things that have already happen that we can praise God for:

  • At Drexel there has been a good amount of partnership between several Christian student organizations and church groups:  Drexel Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ, Epiphany Fellowship’s life group, Chinese Christian Fellowship and Disciples InDeed  will all be involved on some level tomorrow.
  • There has been great partnering support between churches and campus ministries especially in the Southern Baptist Convention.
  • The simple idea of Engage24 has basically gone viral and we keep hearing about people and ministries that will be participating that we don’t know how they heard about it.
  • For a an idea that was formed in a room with 7 campus minsters a year ago, it is really cool to see what God has done.

Thank you for praying.  Please continue to pray for us, today and definitely tomorrow (10/11/12) and even after the day as we continue the conversations started.

Because we are trying to social media to connect this nation wide event if you want to let us know that you have prayed for us you post it on our facebook page or send us a tweet @Engage24.  You can also comment on this page and I will pass it along through facebook and twitter.
