Mercer County churches served by CU students

By Linda Waggener

CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY – Sunday morning, November 7, 2016, was the beginning of the Mercer County November Kingdom Advance by Campbellsville University Church Outreach. Student worship teams came together for morning dedication at the Conover Education Center in Harrodsburg, KY, led by Dr. G. Ted Taylor, vice president for university outreach.

He said to students, faculty, staff and guests gathered together before going out to their respective churches, that he was thankful for the CU students who would preach, lead worship and share testimonies of the transforming power of the gospel.

Taylor introduced Wes Carter, regional director of development and church outreach, as one who has poured his heart and soul into Mercer County to advance the kingdom of God. He said 10 years ago a gentleman named Michael Conover prayed that real Christian higher education would come to Mercer County – a school that would produce Christian warriors to go out and do an amazing work in Mercer County. He said, "Today we are answering a call, and we are thankful for 17 churches and the ministerial association that have invited us to be part of their service today."

Carter said over a year ago this building was unfinished, waiting for prayers to be answered. "Today," he said, "it's amazing to see how it has been finished and become a place where we can meet, study and worship. Looking out into the faces of over 70 students ready to go out and serve the Lord makes me so very thankful."

Taylor said Campbellsville University has never drifted from her commitments to be Christ centered, church connected and changing lives for Christ.

Church Outreach at CU works with individual churches to meet the needs of the congregation. From student testimony and preaching, to student worship teams leading portions of the service, or students conducting all elements of the service, the choice is up to the church being served.
