Dear CU Vox Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

“And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” -1 Corinthians 2:1-5 (ESV)

In the rhythm of a school year, the spring term is one of our most evangelistic times. The promised warmth, which you have no doubt enjoyed for months, has finally arrived to New Hampshire and to Christian Union Vox. The First-Years, having not yet experienced the nearly endless drawing out of Dartmouth’s winters, are relieved at the turn. With the newly warmed weather, everyone from students to staff to professors flock to the outdoors to enjoy the warmth and sunshine. The Green is covered in students eating, playing frisbee, studying, chatting, and sunbathing. But now, because of CU Vox, a new group has joined them: students living out their faith and practicing evangelism.

As shown in Matthew 28:18-20 (the “Great Commission”), our authority and mandate to witness comes directly from Jesus Christ, and CU Vox takes this very seriously. Our Outreach team has been hard at work, planning a major evangelistic event taking place next week on Thursday, May 16. Recognizing the Dartmouth tendency to approach faith with intellect first and everything else a distant second, this “CU Classic” will focus on broadening students' understanding of God and his real, active power. Our speaker is David Taylor, who will be discussing the questions of “Does God still speak today?”, and then demonstrating the power of God by prophesying, as the Lord leads. This approach will powerfully demonstrate God’s ability to both fulfill our intellectual cravings and also affect our lives immediately and directly, speaking to atheists and agnostics as well as Christians who have never seen God’s active power in their lives or who have never heard His voice.

This event will take monumental prayer backing, an effort that began weeks ago and will ramp up until May 16 arrives. From individual prayer, to fasting, to prayer meetings, to prayer walks, the students of CU Vox have been building spiritual momentum and covering this whole effort in prayer. We know that its success—and ultimately all of our evangelistic efforts—depend integrally on the Holy Spirit’s movement. And nothing attracts His presence and power more than committed Christians united in prayer.

Join us in this effort! I am asking you to commit to praying for the saving of souls on the Dartmouth campus for at least 15 minutes each day through Thursday, May 16. This is truly a substantial good work that you can do to benefit the students of this beloved campus.
