God continues to stir a fresh wind of evangelism on campus as students engage in personal soul winning. Completed last year, the Taking the Hill evangelism initiative took the Gospel to every home within a one-mile radius of the seminary.
The seminary has launched a follow-up effort to reach those who were not home during this initial outreach and only received a door hanger with the Gospel presentation. This continued initiative, called No Soul Left Behind, challenges students and faculty to be part of the second wave of evangelism in the surrounding community. Students may stop by the Office of Student Services for more information. Professors and students have offered times during the week when they are available to pray, model, coach and accompany others in personal evangelism.
Dr. Matt Queen relayed the story of two students who led a young man to the Lord. M.Div. student Steven von Stein, remarked, “ “Although I have completed my two required witnessing encounters for Dr. Wilder, I’m not stopping. This stuff is contagious!”
Students also have an incredible opportunity to connect local churches with their communities through door-to-door evangelism, April 9-10. The Cross Timbers Baptist Association in West Texas has requested 150 students to share the Gospel door-to-door on Saturday and 25 men to preach in churches on Sunday morning. Students interested in helping can contact Dr. David Mills at dmills@swbts.edu.
