Contingent staff

Growing up I heard Jesus died for my sins, but I never understood what that meant. Throughout my life I have sought to earn in order to receive. As I got older, I realized how exhausting and burdensome that process was. Once I got to college, I was befriended by a Campus Outreach staff woman and began to hear and understand the truth that my works and being a “good person” don’t get me to heaven. I learned that it was by grace that I am saved through faith not through my works (Ephesians 2:8). Hearing that Jesus is the way to salvation and not my works was so comforting. Learning to rest in Christs’ righteousness and know God sees me as He sees Christ was absolutely beautiful to me. The Lord graciously captured my heart freshman year and since then I desire to see others come to know Christ too and I look forward to getting to partner with Campus Outreach to do so.
