Campus Director (University of Kentucky)

  Until I went to college, I knew a lot about Jesus Christ, but new nothing of Him personally in my own life. I grew up in church, but there wasn't a pesonal relationship with Christ in my life.  God, in his perfect Providence brought a man named Josh Duncan, who is on staff with Campus Outreach, into my life and he boldly shared the good news of Ephesians 2:8-9 with me that: "for by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is a gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one can boast." God used Campus Outreach to develop and deepen my faith in Christ alone, build convictions for life from the Bible, as well as giving me training opportunities to reach college students, like myself, with the beautiful gospel of Jesus Christ. Over this time, the Lord has given me a burden to see college students come to know Jesus Christ and a vision that God could use me to reach them
