Miles Costello found a place of healing at Christian Campus Fellowship (CCF) during a difficult time in his life as a student at Georgia Tech University. The experience led him to a career in campus ministry — after earning his bachelor’s degree in business and finance and a Master of Divinity at Emmanuel Christian Seminary — so that he could help provide that space for international students.
As their university term came to an end, students in the Globalscope Canvas ministry in Birmingham, England, finally were able to spend time in person together. So, the Canvas team — Tom and Jenna Gallant, Luke Caldwell and Taylor Batte — decided to show the students how much they are loved and valued with a “Week of Fun.”
“Missions was always in the back of my mind, but I didn’t know what that could look like,” says Grace College student Victoria Pflueger.
A request from a friend who had previously taken Alpha, an 11-week course that explores the basics of the Christian faith, has led CMF team members Timothy and Tammy Aho to start two new online study groups for the course in Birmingham, England.
Despite the maximum restrictions of the third lockdown in Great Britain, Tom and Jenna Gallant and the Globalscope campus ministry team at Canvas in Birmingham, England, are implementing fresh and creative ideas for the new university term.
