The one where the Kingdom came!

Hey everyone! I hope your week is going well. Here at MNU it’s spiritual deepening week! Yesterday morning at chapel we had Dr. Green from Trevecca speak and he was very excited and enthusiastic about sharing with us how our faith should maybe be ‘childlike.’ Last night was KINGDOM COME! Kingdom Come is a monthly worship service and it is amazing. Students gather at Bell and just worship the Lord and partake in the Lord’s supper. This is probably my favorite event that we have on campus because God truly moves in every service and I enjoy every second of[…]

For Such a Time as This

In the Old Testament, Esther was placed in a specific place, position, and situation. She was positioned to save her people and didn’t really realize the placement of God until her cousin Mordecai told her that she was the queen for SUCH A TIME AS THIS. If you noticed from my last blog, I’m at a bit of a crossroads when it comes to future decisions. As I allow others to advise me and give me their opinions I feel the push. The push I am experiencing now is to be an RA. There are a lot of hesitance on[…]

Mosaic

There are many times where the Lord provides a calling for someone in allowing them to meet some sort of need. This last summer, my fiance, who is a youth and worship pastor at a local church, was made aware of a need within our church community. Many people within the 18-30 age range (the Mosaic Generation) were desperately in need of community and were struggling finding it on their own. After numerous discussions with various people including the church staff, my fiance decided to take on the committment of launching a young adult ministry. Towards the beginning of last semester a team of about[…]

Vices in the Life of an MNU Pioneer

1 Assignment! 2 Assignment! 3 Assignment! 4! 5 Assignment! 6 Assignment! 7 Assignment! MORE! Then there’s a speech. And an essay too! I’m so overwhelmed! My world is consumed! I need to focus! To get my work done! Even if it’s boring! And it’s really no fun! I hope you enjoyed that poem right there!  I worked really hard on it. A whole three minutes maybe! But it is very fitting, don’t you think?  Homework is SOOOO consuming sometimes.  Yet we still need to focus and get it done.  I personally need to focus on my studies even more than[…]

The one where you learn TWENTY-one new things.

Learn TWENTY new things today: A crocodile can’t stick it’s tongue out. A shrimp’s heart is in it’s head. It is physically impossible for pigs to look up into the sky. More than 50% of the people in the world have never made or received a telephone call. If you try to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel in your head/neck and die. –> So let it blow! Rats multiply so quickly that in 18 months, two rats could have over a million descendants. –> That’s a lot of rat kissing. Wearing headphones for just an hour[…]

SUMMA TIME!

I know it’s just the beginning of February and the weather isn’t quite up to par with the mid-year months, but it’s never too soon to start thinking about the best time of the year, right? Typically the summertime is full of carefree attitudes, little responsibility, and lots of adventures. I mean, with no school, no bedtime, and no guidelines things can get a little crazy, of course in a sane, wholesome, moral way! However, this summer may be a little different. It will most likely not lack adventure, but will include hard work and some responsibility. As of now[…]

My First Vlog

Have I ever mentioned that my goal in life is to have my own talk show? Seriously though. I’ve watched Oprah since I was 6. I’m not so much into the “Vlogging” concept, but I am into talking to people. See, the way I see it is if people make millions off of talking to people, then that must mean people are interested in the lives of others. And if I like talking to people, and you like learning about other people then… Ladies and Gents of MNU Blogs, I present, my first talk show. I’ll be interviewing real Pioneers[…]
