Behind the Scenes look at You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown

Hello all! We finished up You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown with our final show last night! It was a great run. Now it’s time to let you in on some of the backstage secrets and shenanigans. Becoming Pigpen: You wanna know a secret? All the the “dirt” on Brandon’s face and shirt is really cooca powder. So even though he looked like he smelled really gross he actually smelled like chocolate!   As some of you know I played Lucy this fall in Charlie Brown. It was truly a fun role! At one point in the big number that[…]

Baptism, War, and Improv

Week 6 Vlog. This video highlights an exciting week of faith, fun, and rowdiness at MNU. I’m excited to show y’all the excitement we’ve been up to here. Song: Stormy Blues, Arne Bang Huseby.

An Action Pact Weekend

This past weekend the MNU Serve Team Action Pact went to Hays, Kansas on a quick three day trip to help out a start up church called The Vine. Action Pact is MNU’s improv travel team. When we are asked, we travel to different events, churches, and youth groups  to perform impov as well as skits.

The drive down to Hays took about 5 1/2 hours in our 11 person van. But we found ways to entertain ourselves.

 

When we arrived in Hays we met with the pastor and went to the church (which is held in a coffee shop) and did a little improv!

We stayed in the pastor’s basement which had a stuffed black bear in it.

On Saturday we went door to door in neighborhoods and trailer parks inviting people to the church. We traveled in groups of two or four. It was heartbreaking and eye opening to see the need for Jesus in Hays. Every single one of our groups had at least one door slammed in our face the second we mentioned the word ‘church’.

On the reverse we spoke to people who were very grateful to have us come by their house and speak with them. Christian was my partner for going door to door and we were able to pray with many people. We prayed for a man who was homeless, a man who had a disease in his legs, and a gentleman’s unborn daughter.

On Sunday Action Pact performed the skit The Old Testament in 20 Minutes at The Vine Church.

It was a great weekend but it was exhausting.

On Sunday after lunch we headed back to Olathe!

Overall it was an excellent weekend! If you are a current MNU student or a prospective student I would suggest that you join an MNU Serve Team one year that you are on campus!

Stay classy,

College – Is It Really Worth It?

A question that every student asks, and every parent is worried about. We all have been there. There are times when all the effort, time, and money seem to be invested into something we don’t really care about. We all learned by heart the stories preaching about the importance of having a college degree. On the other hand, we all know Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates who dropped out of college and are billionaires now. So, which path is the right one? I think that college is not as much about getting a degree as it is about[…]
