Christian Union
Indignation and compassion form a powerful combination. They are indispensable to vision, and therefore to leadership. The authority by which the Christian leader leads is not power but love, not force but example, not coercion but reasoned persuasion. Leaders have power, but power is safe only in the hands of those who humble themselves to serve.” -John R. Stott

Greetings from Cambridge,

For nearly eleven-years students have led HCFA with a prevailing desire to glorify God. For this we are profoundly thankful. Their measured determination to humble themselves (a truly foreign concept amongst us humans!) has resulted in effectual leadership that has steadied the ship whatever the conditions.

Please join us in prayer:

  • …thanking God for the team of leaders that has served in 2018-19. Please pray that the Lord would continue to bless and honor every student that has determined in such tangible ways “to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” (Matt. 6); and that we would all consistently win the ongoing, critical skirmishes in our soul re our deepest loyalties.
  • …that the collective aim of our community will be “love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith” (1 Tim. 1:5)
As always, we are grateful for your prayers and your partnership.
