Kingdom Outpost

I love working at the Christian Campus Center. When I interviewed for the position, having the CCC was a major reason I took the job.

As much as I love it, there are times when I feel disconnected from the rest of the church, simply by geography. Because of this, much of the Kingdom work that goes on over here doesn’t always make its way back to the larger body. So I thought I would take this blog post as an opportunity to tell you, or remind you what the CCC is all about.

I like to think of the CCC as a Kingdom Outpost. We do kingdom work here – serving, worshiping, teaching, disciple-making, and being good neighbors in our neighborhood. Every Tuesday we serve a free lunch at 11:30. This is a great way to meet new students and give them a good free meal. Students like food, but they love free food. Every Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. we have worship and a bible study. Many of our Singing Oaks students come but we also have a group of students that are not part of SOCC. We are their community of faith. We also do game nights, movie nights, retreats, and with all of this we are reaching beyond the walls of Singing Oaks to build relationships which is what being a Kingdom Outpost is all about.

I’m so thankful that Dan and the Elders decided to buy this building a few years ago. I know it’s not cheap for us to keep it up and running, but I also know that God is using this Kingdom Outpost. It does not belong to us but to God – we are merely stewards. As stewards, we have opened up the CCC to other groups that use our building every week: UNT Navigators, Young Life, Hope Fellowship, and World Life International Student Outreach. All these groups share our Kingdom mission of reaching students with the Gospel and many students have come to faith as a direct result of us sharing our building with them.

College Ministry is mission work, and it’s not easy mission work. UNT, TWU, and NCTC are our mission field, and the CCC is a place for missionary training. My hope and prayer is that those that come through our doors will come to know the King through this Kingdom Outpost.

So thank you for your support of the CCC. A little piece of the Kingdom on Oak St. Please continue to pray for us and all of our students.
