Announcement Letter: Sample 2
Month day, year
Called to the Campus
Upon entering the doorway of the Purple Palace (one of my college homes) after a long walk of praying over my passions and the direction of my life I yelled, “Guess what! I’m going to go into campus ministry with The Navigators after college!” That was six years ago!
How God Called and Continually Prepares
Throughout my college years what I loved most was mentoring and sharing in life’s ups and downs with others. I loved rejoicing with others in their accomplishments and walking alongside people who were deeply struggling. I was always amazed by the emotional and spiritual growth I saw in those around me. A deep desire to reach out to college students began my junior year of college and continues to be a strong passion within me.
Since college I have worked at a reading clinic, substitute taught, taught grades 4–6, and been a nanny. I believe that each of these jobs has helped prepare me for what God is leading me to do now. I have also been involved in Bible studies, conferences, mentoring others, and being mentored. Through these experiences I have received preparation for college ministry.
The Hope and Vision
I have been invited by The Navigators, an international Christian organization, to serve at the University of Minnesota. College students are at a unique place in life. They are away from family for the first time and making decisions that will affect the rest of their lives. My part will be to meet, build friendships, and mentor students. I will also help plan the women’s ministry and attend NAV night (large group meeting held once a week). I am also continuing to nanny for the time being to supplement my income.
I wanted to share my new adventure with you. Stay tuned as I will be sending you more details soon—including information on the prayer and financial support team I need to have in place before I begin ministry later this year.
Blessings to you and your family,
P.S. If you have any questions about this new adventure with The Navigators, please contact me. I would love to hear from you!
