I wanted to announce that we have made an important decision! Our brand new ministry name for Purdue is:
INTERNATIONAL CAMPUS MINISTRIES
This name encompasses a lot for us and the future ministry at Purdue. Our ministry will focus towards INTERNATIONAL students, obviously. Then, the word CAMPUS places the emphasis on the collegiate environment. Finally, the word MINISTRIES is significant because of several reasons: 1) our ministry will target primarily the students at Purdue University, but we want to be open for the international students at Ivy Tech, which is a local community college, 2) our desire is that this ministry will be adopted by individual churches, but be seen by them as a collective effort by us all. The abbreviation, ICM, also parallels the abbreviation of the Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM) that we will work together with.
This name is so important to us as a family, and especially myself, because it only continues to add the reality to what God is doing. We are so excited about how He is providing and opening doors. Please pray that He will provide new financial partners as well as prayer partners.
Our logo and labeling will come in time. If you are reading this and think that Lord is laying on your heart a logo for us, please feel free to contact me.
There is more coming as God leads!
