Ignition at Bethel College in Mishawaka, IN…
In June of 2009, staff, professors, and top level leaders (including the dean) held an Ignition Retreat at our Lodge facilities here in Buchanan, MI. In September, C.I. received the following e-mail detailing God’s move upon their campus:
Dear Collegiate Impact,
God met with us in an incredible fashion…The Ignition Retreat with you was a critical element in preparing us for what God wanted to do last week: igniting the fires of revival for this academic year. Here are some of the highlights of what we are experiencing:
More than 20 people came to faith in Christ for the first time.
100-200 students, faculty, staff and administrators responded to calls for repentance each service.
I was deeply moved by the quick response from many faculty and staff to pray with individuals at the alter. I was further moved by how students were prompted to join peers at the altar in prayer and intercession.
I have received feedback from parents of students who have heard from their students, confirming (as one mother put it) that Bethel was the right choice for their students.
