Thanks for praying for Connect!

The comments are in: “What a Connect it was!” Our annual student training conference was incredible this year. We had the largest attendance to date as well as the largest number of student participants. We clearly sensed God’s Spirit at work among staff, students and visiting speakers. You may be interested in what some of the evaluations had to say:

“I discovered what creative worship is!”
“The workshop topics opened my eyes to see the Bible differently.”
“Very powerful presence of God in the evening services.”
“Small groups helped me to come out of my shell because I’m generally solitary and keep to myself.”
“Friendships were created that I know will last many years.”
“Learned so much in my class.”
“Connect far exceeded my expectations…such an affirming, encouraging week!”
“I will be back next year, God willing.”

Another comment: “This was the second year I attended SFC Europe’s Connect. I had already been struck by the quality of meetings, the humility of the organizers and the desire to glorify Christ above all… This year in Germany, my experience was renewed and complete: from the worship to the teaching, from deep times of sharing with students from all over Europe to times of personal worship alone with Christ…Once again I was blown away by the leaders’ spirit of service, by the quality of the teaching, the times of worship and intercession for the nations. During this time in Germany, I met my Lord, people who want to live for Him, and leaders who are ready to submit to one another. Thank you for this. Thank you for wanting to live the ‘Church.'”

Thank YOU for praying and partnering with us to see the lives of students in Europe changed!
