As part of Crossover Lexington, the Kentucky Baptist Convention's Baptist Campus Ministry has plans to reach non-believers on area college campuses with two great events.
THE GREAT EXCHANGE WITH TOM RUSH
University of Kentucky
10 a.m. – 2 p.m
Confrontational approaches to evangelism usually backfire, especially today. At The Great Exchange we use surveys to allow people to open up about their spiritual backgrounds and their understanding of God, Jesus, and Christianity. After they have explained their views, we ask if we can share some of our own beliefs. When students see that we genuinely care and are open to listen, they in turn, are often eager to hear from us.
The Great Exchange has visited over 30 college and university campuses in the United States, Brazil, Germany, and Hungary. We also work alongside other ministries where one-day events feature volunteers and open air conversations about Christ.
What students are saying: “There is no way that’s in the Bible,” said Zach, a 21-year-old agnostic at The University of Georgia. “I thought the central message of Christianity is: Obey the commandments and God will let you into heaven.” “A lot of people think that,” I responded, as we sat near the bus stop, “but look at Romans 3:20: ‘By the works of the law no human being will be justified in God’s sight.’ That means no one is saved by being good. Can I tell you what the gospel is?” “Yes, I’d actually like to hear it.”
Manchester Music Hall
This concert-style event will feature the incredible music of Stephen McWhirter as well as the powerful teaching of FCA leader Aaron Hogue. The unique atmosphere of Manchester Music Hall makes this evening a perfect opportunity to invite family and friends to enjoy music and truthful teaching. Mark your calendar. We hope to see you there!
