Editor's note: The following is shared from the North River Church of Christ newsletter.
For the past four years, the North River Church of Christ has sent the McGuirks, along with almost 20 campus ministry students, to Paris for a month-long summer internship. The group shares their faith on college campuses in Paris for the duration of their stay, which has led to God performing miracles and transforming lives.

“It’s a change. It’s different.” These were the words of the hilarious Matthew McConaughey Lincoln commercial parody that advertised the long-awaited ICMC East 2017. And like the words above, the conference was definitely a departure from years before. It was not held on July 4th weekend. It was not the usual Thursday through Sunday schedule. It was not even held in a renowned, bustling city. It was different indeed and many are saying that it was one of the best ICMCs ever.
The call was not a familiar number, so the call was not answered...but the Lord provided and they left a message! Kweneshia Price, director of the Aspiring Eagles Academy at North Carolina Central University, had a simple request, "Can we bring a bus load of incoming freshmen and advisers to worship with the Triangle Church of Christ?" Yes, the Lord provides!
The calling of Jesus is alive again in the campus ministries. On the last weekend of February the campus ministries across the Southeast US came together for an incredible retreat in Ocoee, Tennessee. Over 500 students came to learn to walk "In His Steps." The retreat focused on the book of 1 Peter and the call to follow Jesus' steps. God spoke through the whole weekend with our guest speakers, Jesse and Alexandra Ghoman, campus ministers from Boston.
The church in Tallinn, Estonia is very excited to extend an invitation to the "By Faith" Campus Ministry Conference taking place April 7-9, 2017. The regional conference is open to any campus disciples from anywhere in God's kingdom.
