Fall Bible Conference Update

August 19, 2015

Dear Parent, 

Please allow me to update you on what happened tonight at our Fall Bible Conference. We started the service tonight at 7:00 pm, and several of us were still there about 10:00 pm counseling with students. Clayton King preached and issued a clear call for anyone who needed to be saved to respond. We literally had students come from all over the auditorium. 

In total, 109 students responded. I do not yet know what every individual decision was, but the call was clearly for those experiencing conviction to respond in repentance and faith asking Jesus to save them. No doubt heaven is rejoicingtonight as many new believers joined the kingdom of God. 

After the service we had each one of them meet with someone in a nearby room who could talk with them more and pray for them. We had faculty, staff, RAs, and RDs meeting with those who made decisions. As you would imagine, it has generated a lot of excitement around campus tonight. We also gathered names and email addresses so that we can follow up with them to learn more about the decision they made. The Student Life and Christian Ministries division will be coordinating the follow up in the coming week. 

Please join me in praying that this is only the beginning of God sending revival to the cornfields of Ohio. Thank you. 

In Christ Alone,

Thomas White  
President & Professor of Theology
