Discipleship Ministries Involvement

September 1, 2015

Discipleship Ministries exists for the Glory of God to transform students’ lives through reproducing relationships that are rooted in the Word of God. It is our desire to be a co-curricular part of the strategy at Cedarville University to produce increasingly obedient Christ-followers who seek to reproduce themselves in the lives of others, not just during their four years here but for the rest of their lives.  


However, simply organizing small groups does not  guarantee that discipleship is taking place. These small groups, made up of roughly a third of the student body, can be a tool, if used correctly that is conducive to life transformation for the Glory of God for the following reasons:


  • Discipleship Ministries seeks to train students to behold the glory of the Lord in His Word through Gospel- centered studies and training (2 Co. 3:18).
  • Discipleship Ministries seeks to connect younger students with upperclassmen who are maturing in their walk with Christ in Paul and Timothy-type relationships (2 Tim. 2:2).
  • Discipleship Ministries seeks to develop relationships and events to further immerse students in the Word of God and the Worship of God.


Through our events, studies and fellowship, it is my great passion to see students pursuing and making much of Christ, increasingly hungering for His Word and dedicated to making disciples of Jesus Christ far beyond these four years. Please pray for us as we seek to be obedient to the call to make disciples. “If we abide in Christ, He promises to bear much fruit, but apart from Him we can do nothing” (John 15:5).

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
