Day of Service

Coming up at the end of December is our Northwest Winter Conference, where 800 students involved in Campus Crusade come from all over the Northwest to gather for a week for worship, teaching, equipping, and outreach. It has fallen to my Portland team to plan the day of outreach to the city of Portland.

We have been frantically calling service organizations all over the city to find places where these college students can spend the day serving others and proclaim the Gospel through their words and deeds.

We have been in contact with homeless shelters, Crisis Pregnancy Centers, Habitat for Humanity, nursing homes, and churches all over the area. Please pray, as this is a huge undertaking to bring all these details and locations together!

More on the conference later...

I heard that Imago Dei has been strategically cleaning and renovating parks without telling anyone. What if you simply located a few needs the city has (major areas that need cleaning, repainting, or gardening and such) and just sent the kids out to do it?

Good thought, Matt. We are doing a few things like that too. Part of the desire is for us to build partnership with churches and service orgs, both Christian and not, as part of communicating love by working together.

Thanks for the tip.

Unfortunately Nancy, no big truck. Hopefully no broken rib or high fever either!
