The sole purpose of all Christians is to bring lost souls to Christ. What is the best way to do that? One of the obvious solutions is to train young Christians to promote the Christian life. This is the main goal of the Pepperdine Christian University, which is seeking the ways to show the importance of God in all aspects of life. When I was a child, my parents took me to church and expressed the importance of having a relationship with Jesus. After that, I have always known that faith is an important aspect of life. I plan to contribute to Pepperdine’s mission statement by allowing people to see Jesus through my works and promoting the diligent study of God’s word.
Many young people believe that being a Christian means having a life with no fun. I want to show everyone that there are many ways to have fun and fellowship with other Christian believers. If people are able to see me having fun without forsaking my Christian beliefs, they will be more inclined to learn about Christianity. Christian believers can get together and have fun just like members of the secular world. We can have shopping trips, play various games, attend religious ceremonies, and even enjoy back yard barbeques.
Being away from home means you are also away from your Christian family. I hope to promote student bible study within my dormitory. Students who participate will be able to build closer relationship with Christ by learning his word. More of that, students can obtain leadership skills by agreeing to lead the class discussion once a week. This will promote God’s commandment while allowing us to learn and make friends with others.
