In celebration of ServeHere's new Executive Director, we're sharing a little bit about the non-profit's journey to helping college students discover their ministry. ServeHere has impacted the lives of so many college students and non-profit partners, but God is always the driver. In the short time we have together today, we share a story of a stranger at a coffee shop, and how she reminded us of why we remain passionate about this work. When the world is loud and confusing, you can take refuge in the fact that God is working. Through your work, through your heart, and even through strangers.
This is the episode to share with someone who is looking for a place to pour into college students, to financially partner with, or for those of you out there trying to understand how to bridge the gap between the college bubble and the rest of the world.
Regardless of why you're here, our prayer is that you believe in the gifts you have to share with the world. They're purposeful, and needed.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! We're starting the year off with a short encouragement to set you up for a year of success- a redefined success. We talk about what 2020 has to do with a newly remodeled bathroom, and share 3 things to hold on to in 2021!
This week is PART 2 of our conversation with Amber Fogarty, president of Mobile Loaves and Fishes! We invited 6 college students to listen to Amber tell her story and today they get to ask any question they want. Of course, her answers will move you, surprise you, and maybe give you a little hope. Our prayer in ending the year with this episode is that you would witness something new, something sacred, going into 2021.
Today we are talking to our friend Amber Fogarty. She is the President of Mobile Loaves and Fishes, a wife, a mom, and a lifelong learner. We ask her to go back to the exact season YOU are in, and share with us what it looked like to figure out her first post-grad step. She tells us the story of how she got where she is and the courageous moments of obedience she took along the way. Get your pens and paper ready, there are so many moments in this interview where you will want to pause and take note.
Natalie Alcala joins us today to reflect on her experience as a college senior in 2020. We talk about grieving the “lasts” and how this crazy year impacted her faith, her friendships, and her thoughts on a future career. She chats with us about her summer internship through ServeHere at The Archibald Project and how much that experience shaped her. This is our first of many conversations with a college student! Our goal for these episodes is to give you familiar voices with familiar questions, and hopefully help you feel less alone in your thoughts about your future.
When you think of the word waiting, do you think of a doctor’s office waiting room? Perhaps a long line at the grocery store? What if you saw waiting as those few seconds before a race? A runner is focused, in an active position, ready… waiting for the signal to GO.
We're going to talk about that today. Whether it’s a day or a season, often times the last few semesters of college feel like you’re waiting for your future to start. If that’s the case, you might be missing out on something really important. The good news is a simple shift in perspective can bring hope into any "in-between" season.
You are not alone in your questions about your future. You have a superpower. You’re YOU. Uniquely gifted, purposefully placed, deeply loved. Stepping into the holy work ahead of you ironically starts with letting it go. We’re starting with a chat about surrendering your future in faith. Instead of making decisions out of fear, we’re training ourselves to get excited about the unknown ahead. This is going to be fun!
