And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see Him, just as he told you. Mark 16:5-7

Dear CU Gloria Cornerstone Partners and Friends of the Ministry,

We pray that you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you are reminded of all of God’s good gifts in your life. The CU Gloria Team is grateful for your support and we are especially grateful for Jesus’ empty tomb! This fall we have been journeying through the Gospel of Mark with many Harvard students in our Bible courses. Mark’s gospel ends with the incredible announcement and proclamation of the resurrection of Jesus, which is our hope. It is this gospel of the living Christ we proclaim that motivates us as we continue to love, serve, counsel, coach, and teach our students God’s word.

One huge praise is that Ministry Fellow Tyler Parker has led yet another student, a golfer, to Christ in mid-November. Hallelujah! CU Gloria also celebrates finishing the Gospel of Mark together in our Bible courses as well as the Sky-prayer gatherings which have been happening weekly under the faithful leadership of the Seeking God Ministry Team. CU Gloria was also really blessed to host some great Doxas this fall, under the incredible leadership of the Doxa Ministry Team, you can watch some of the videos of our speakers here.

The week before Thanksgiving the CU Gloria Team was able to meet with freshmen to say goodbye outside Peet’s Coffee in Harvard Square. While everyone was socially distant and masked, it was still a wonderful time of connecting with students. Most of the freshmen are back home now for the semester and will not be returning to campus for another 9-10 months. Please pray for the challenges many of them will be facing at home and with having to do online classes. It is a challenging season for all our students and your prayers for their spiritual, mental, and emotional wellbeing are coveted.

Thanks to your generosity many students continue to be ministered to regularly, and especially for the ones who have come to Christ this year, their lives will never be the same. Thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and investment in what God is doing at Harvard.

Pray with us for the following:
  • That God would bless and work through the co-ed winter Bible study we will be starting during Winter Break.
  • That the students would continue to stay plugged in and connected to Christian community, especially during the prolonged time of separation.
  • That students would be intentionally seeking God during winter break and advancing spiritually.

Thank you for your prayers and support,

The CU Gloria Faculty
