Please pray for Christian Union's ministry at Princeton.
Dear CU Nova Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

God is using your prayers to help grow the ministry at CU Nova and develop future Christian leaders. Thank you!

CU Nova held a successful freshmen welcoming campaign and pre-retreat. With the semester now underway, our freshmen men’s Bible Course groups agreed to meet for a fellowship lunch every week and an hour of confession and prayer before BC, as well as commitments to times of fasting. Our women’s Bible Courses are also thriving under Qwynn’s leadership and the student leaders. We have over 40 freshmen enrolled in Bible Course this semester! I’m so blessed to see our students earnestly desire to seek the Lord and grow in their walk with him!

Dear CU Nova Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

Summer was full of exciting stories and opportunities for our students both at home and abroad. Meanwhile, Christian Union faculty have been preparing for the coming year. At the start of August, we gathered together for a week-long retreat of training and spiritual revitalization aptly titled Momentum. Now Fall has come, bringing blessings and challenges.

We’re excitedly preparing for our PreRetreat where we will join our student leaders for a time of refreshing in the Lord, deepening the bonds of community, and training for our Freshmen Welcoming Campaign! Our students will be challenged to reach out with the message of the gospel and to pursue friendships with as many incoming Freshmen as possible. Many Christian Freshmen simply don’t know that they need Christian community and don’t think to seek it out. This is why we must go to them! Our prayer is that no Christian student falls away and misses out on spiritual growth during their Princeton years - and that every student has an invitation to Christian community. We aim to be like the Good Shepherd, leaving the ninety-nine to seek out and find the one!

Dear CU Nova Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

Princeton students are wrapping up summer classes or internships and heading home for a week or two before returning for the fall semester. Others have stayed on campus all Summer in various research positions. Thank you for your continuous support and prayers for CU Nova. You are making a difference in the lives of Princeton students for the Kingdom of God!

Students from Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Pennsylvania, Princeton, and Yale gathered at a two-week CU Spiritus student retreat at Camp of the Woods this past May. This retreat aims to strengthen some of our top student leaders to maximize their impact for Christ back on campus.

Dear CU Nova Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

“Look at the nations and watch—and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told” (Habakkuk 1:5).

Greetings in the Name of the Lord!

The word “revival” is in the air thanks to God’s faithful movement on the campuses of Asbury University and Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky. On February 8th, a chapel service—usually lasting an hour—continued beyond its regularly scheduled time. It kept on going past the hour, throughout the day, into the evening, into the next day, and the next. Remarkably, this worship service has continued ever since. I write this in its tenth day and the 2023 Asbury revival has spread to over 22 other college campuses. People are showing up from as far away as Singapore and New Zealand to fill Hughes Auditorium and overflow rooms. Videos from the revival are going viral on social media, and the story of what God is doing at Asbury is receiving coverage everywhere from Christianity Today to NBC and Fox News.

Dear CU Nova Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

It's been quite a year.

As 2023 begins, let's take a moment to look back to see how far we've come and all that God’s accomplished. As we reflect on all that has happened in the past twelve months, it's important to take stock of where we are and where we're going. God has built on our strong foundation to position ourselves for even more success in the years to come. Here's what God has accomplished in the fall semester.

  • More than 2,000 hours of student prayer.

Dear CU Nova Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

In Malachi 3:10, the Lord says, “Test me in this . . . and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it!”

Dear CU Nova Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

I recently sat down over coffee with a freshman who’s asking tough questions and questioning his faith. He wants to know if Christianity is different than any other world religion. Over another lunch this week, I had the opportunity to share the gospel with a different freshman. This student is struggling with LGBTQ issues and wants to know where he stands with God. Another new student is looking for a community to help him grow in Christ, yet another is seeking accountability and hopes to build his worldview around biblical principles.

Dear CU Nova Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

Jesus gave us his recipe for producing fruit. In John 15, he said, “Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” We will remember summer 2022 as a season in which we abided in Him with the expectation of bearing much fruit. For Jesus also told us, “If you abide in Me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you” (John 15:7).

Dear CU Nova Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

God is blessing Christian Union Nova. It’s my prayer that God will continuously bless you as well, showering you with an abundance of His mercy and grace.

On June 29th, I ended a 40-day, one meal-a-day fast that started on May 21st. Our CEO, Matt Bennett encouraged me to press into a season of deep prayer and fasting as we are committed to seeing revival this fall. It is the longest fast I have ever undertaken. My prayers throughout can be summed up by Psalm 105:3-4: “Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice! Seek the LORD and his strength; seek His presence continually!”

Dear CU Nova Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

It’s summertime in Princeton! Seeing the beauty of the season in full bloom I’m reminded of the Psalmist who wrote “The earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord” (Psalm 33:5). The whirlwind of the spring 2022 term may be over, yet the work of Christian Union Nova continues.

As the spring term closed, we invited thirty-two students from Christian Union campuses to spend two weeks with us in Northfield, Massachusetts at the inaugural Spiritus Conference. What an incredible experience to worship in the historic home of D.L. Moody. Through morning and evening teaching sessions, Spirit-filled worship, and engaging in community over meals and candid prayer, students experienced the powerful love of Jesus.
