WDA North America: A Next Gen Story

WDA’s Next Generation campus ministry got a big facelift in 2021, and a brand new internship program at DePauw University and Reinhardt University. Student ministry training is in full swing at Purdue University. The next generation of disciple makers is hungry for Jesus, and passionate about having a real impact on those around them!

“Our motto for our outreaches is: “A party with a purpose!” We want the kids to bring their friends, have fun, AND hear about how much God loves them and wants to free them from their sin.

We had a great turnout of kids for our November 2021 outreach. Kate, one of our college student leaders, gave a powerful message about trusting God during discouraging times. She used a combination of recent stories from her own life as well as scripture from the book of Job.

All eyes were focused on Kate as she shared some of her own hardships: discouragement with health issues, setbacks in her athletic career, as well as relationship struggles. This led to some deep discussions and prayers during the small group time.

We continue to see new faces at our monthly outreaches and pray that these students want to keep coming back to hear more.”
