Keeping the Faith in College

Dr. Mark Jones, leader of the Baptist Student Ministry on the campus of TJC and chaplain of our football team, was a guest speaker in Senior Seminar this week talking to seniors about keeping their faith strong when they go to college. His inspiring presentation reminded students that they must continue to fan the flame and to use the power that God has given them (2 Timothy 1: 6-8). He encouraged them to seek life on the college campus—to look for places and people where God is actively working and to surround themselves with that strength. Dr. Jones told students that the next few years of their lives will provide an awesome opportunity for growth and to take advantage of each and every minute of each and every day knowing and trusting God’s promise that He will be walking right beside them.
