Meet Cheyenne! A freshman at Meredith and a new member of our InterVarsity community.
When Cheyenne was growing up she had questions about God, but her family didn't go to church and she didn't know where else to find answers. She decided that when she got to college she was going to try to figure out the answers to her questions.
So, when InterVarsity leaders stopped by her room to invite her to our community, she said yes. And she kept saying yes.....to community nights, to her small group, and to our on-campus retreat.
And in the midst of all those yeses,she said YES to following Jesus.
I asked her how she felt entering our community:
"I was so scared. I was afraid there wouldn't be space for my questions; afraid I would feel judged, and unsure of how a group like this would treat me.
But It has been better than I could have ever imagined......"
In these first few weeks of school Cheyenne has said a resounding YES to following Jesus. She loves studying Scripture with others in a space where her questions, observations, and input is valued. She is eager to grow, delighted to be a part of a multi-ethnic community, and has started inviting her friends and roommates to come and see what she has experienced (and they have ALSO said yes to joining our community!).
Praise the Lord for His work transforming lives at Meredith College.

Black Campus Ministry at NC State
Please pray for the Black Campus Ministry (BCM) Chapter at NC State! I've been serving as their staff since August. Currently their chapter is a small group of men and women who meet weekly for Bible study and prayer. Their vision is to provide a much needed space for community, connection, and discipleship for Black students at NCSU.
Please pray for new leaders to emerge so that they can grow in their impact and reach more students.

Your prayers and support make this work possible. THANK YOU!
