We’ve seen our first Greek Conversion of the new school year and we have Five house bible studies that are ready to launch! Praise the Lord!
Erik is in a Fraternity called Pi Kappa Phi. I met Erik when one of our students invited him to come to a Greek IV bible study. Erik grew up with parents who were Christian in Minnesota but had never made a personal decision to follow Jesus. I had met with to follow-up after his first Greek IV before summer started last Spring Quarter. We went through scripture in the Gospel of John as the Word sparked up questions and curiosity for Erik. Over the summer, Erik had read the full Gospel of John and came back to school excited to get his Brothers to explore faith and Greek IV as a non-Christian!
Erik has agreed to open up his house and gather other Brothers in his Fraternity to come together to talk about faith for a Pi Kap bible study that I would lead. Person of Peace? I definitely think so! But check this out.
Last Friday, I got together with Erik to hear about his summer, talk to him more about the Gospel of John and see where he was in his faith journey. He immediately said, “Yeah, I want to be a Christian!”
I was taken aback and asked some clarifying question then asked if I could share the Four Circles Diagram with him to help gain a comprehensive view of the Gospel. After doing the four circles diagram, he was stoked and ready to pray to accept Jesus in his heart.
Praise the Lord! Erik prayed to accept Jesus and is fired up to get his Brothers talking about faith! Please be praying for Erik with his recent conversion and growth!
Meet The Greek IV Leadership Team:
This is a picture of our first leadership meeting since coming back from summer. It was a great opportunity to reconnect with one another after a long summer and get reacquainted to our goals and vision.
Greek InterVarsity’s goal is to create witnessing communities in every Fraternity and Sorority at UCLA.
In this meeting you see 10 leaders. These 10 leaders represent 7 different Fraternities and Sororities!
Of these 7 different Fraternities and Sororities, we are getting prepared to launch a bible study this quarter in 5 of them! That means in 1 year, we’ve gone 0 leaders and 0 house bible studies to 10 solid leaders getting ready to launch 5 house bible studies!
Please be praying for these 4 leaders. They will be standing up in front of their entire chapters today to make an announcement and pass out a sign up sheet for their weekly bible study. Praise the Lord for the risks they are taking!
Welcome to Greek IV:
We kicked off our first Greek IV of the year last week with 17 students that showed up as we started our new series called, “Fake”. This month we will be taking a look at what it means to live life authentically in the Greek Community.
Greek IV Year 2 – Here we go!
