Early on a Friday morning last February, I packed into the back of a twelve-passenger van to embark on a ten-hour journey from Boston to Pittsburgh. The college and young adult group at Church of the Cross was headed for Jubilee, the CCO's annual conference that gathers thousands of college students to explore God's role in our studies, careers, and every other area of life.
It was at Jubilee that I learned about the Fellowship Program and met Geraud, who would end up becoming my mentor. I can point to this single weekend in Pittsburgh as the time I heard about new possibilities for the direction of my career, met the people who would help me realize God's call on my life, and began to receive the prayer and support I needed to move forward.
Next Wednesday, Geraud and I are bringing 16 students to Jubilee 2020! Some of the students have been part of our church for most of their lives, some have never been. Some go to Fresno State or Clovis Community, others Fresno City or Fresno Pacific. Others are taking gap years or have graduated from high school and are trying to decide if college is right for them. We are blessed to have such a varied group and excited that Jubilee can offer something to each one.Jubilee helped me see how Jesus wanted to mold and utilize my life, and I'm praying that the same will happen for Jackson, Mariah, Jill, Cristobal, Morgan, Adam, Anyssa, Mary Ann, Matt, Emily, Katie, JR, Bri, Michaela, Chris, and Sara this year.
Since the Fresno group will be flying cross-country to attend the conference, Geraud, the students, and I are looking to raise an additional $3500 to help offset airfare & registration costs. Will you pray with me for the sixteen students named above, and ask if God is calling you to financially support this trip? If so, please visit give.ccojubilee.org/fresno2020 to contribute!Donate
