One of the things that most excited me about coming back to CAMPUS after six years in the pastorate was reconnecting with my close friends Justin and David. Shortly after moving to East Lansing, we gathered together to pray that God would do a mighty work through us. We met every week for a couple hours to reflect and pray. God answered each of our prayers in more ways than we expected.
When the call came to Justin to direct the Communication and Sabbath School departments, we were all excited. We had been praying for God to use us in our new roles. Ever since founding GYC, we’ve had a passion to expand the beauty of our distinctive message as far as possible. Media is so underused by our church, and we often spoke about the need to take advantage of this often-misused medium. Our prayer could not be answered in a more powerful way.
During the process of Justin’s transition, CAMPUS lost one of its greatest assets. Our program director Sebastien Braxton decided that it was time to continue his academic career in order to advance campus ministry in the long-term. After working at CAMPUS for more than 6 years, Sikhu also went on to pursue her graduate degree as well. Losing two key people (although they are still lending their services to CAMPUS in many ways) during this kind of transition was challenging, although we all agreed that it was necessary in the larger context.
Replacing a strong program director like Sebastien is not an easy thing to do. Through the process of prayer, we came up with the idea of establishing our Ministerial Residency Program. We felt that this was a necessary program to have – there is a lack of pastors with ability to lead and mentor students on public university campuses. Furthermore, our experience with CAMPUS and pastoral ministry taught us the value of merging the two. One big challenge was that David was the only one of us in active pastoral ministry and he had a very hectic schedule pastoring two successful congregations.
As we began to pray for solutions, God orchestrated the necessary solutions and pulled together the team that we are now fortunate to have.
Here is our team and vision
Director, Public Campus Ministry
CAMPUS has impacted the thirteen major universities in our conference territory. We have a tested and effective reproducible model that we will begin to implement in our conference territory. Our goal is to provide resources for a biblical model of public campus ministry for the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Director, Graduate and Young Professional Ministry
Churches and ministries throughout the world church are being blessed through the ministry of CAMPUS graduates and those who have adopted our philosophy of spiritual excellence combined with professional excellence. We are currently in the process of expanding intentional ministry to our graduates and to the young professional community. This is one of the most neglected group of people in our church today, and they have a lot to offer our church. Our goal is to establish a leadership alliance ministry for young professionals and their families.
Director, Communication & Sabbath School Departments
In an age where media travels faster than ever before, Adventism should be communicated in the quickest and most technologically advanced way. Sabbath School, our missionary training system for Adventist churches large and small is undervalued. Our goal is to spread the message of Adventism and raise the standard of Adventist leadership through the best use of media.
Assistant Director & Program Director, Internship & Residency
Although the core of the MTP is still the same, running two intense programs simultaneously has produced a very streamlined curriculum. Our reach is wider than ever before. Kimmy’s background in education and Andy’s experience in teaching at the collegiate level have produced very strong programs. Our goal is to expand our Residency to two more churches in the next three years.
Pastor, University Seventh-day Adventist Church & Field Director
Sharing our campus with the University Seventh-day Adventist Church has produced synergy. Our two staff have combined into one team to integrate campus ministry into the local church, make us more effective in our time management and productivity, and raise our evangelistic efforts to a new level. Our goal is to baptize hundreds of souls.
