From the FoYA field...

I'm excited to report that the first two weeks of FoYA have gone really well!

Last Monday (9.18) we started FoYA and had 6 guests in our house. A few of them are former students of ours from First EPC in Renton and the others are from Boulevard. We took time for each to share a few minutes of our story (including passions, career/school path and what we hope for in young adult fellowship). After sharing I through out the challenge for us to take a few weeks to discuss "church" (perceptions and misperceptions).

Yesterday (9.25) we had 11 young adults attend FoYA (8 brand new). We allowed those that were new to share a bit about their life and then began our discussion about the church (not the local body, but the state of the American church). A nooma video entitled, "Sunday" helped spark the conversation. We now represent 3 different congregations and a few non-church goers (exciting stuff)! Be praying for this initial discussion trail (great time last night).

Thanks for your prayers!

One thing that really excites me is that a couple of the young adults have indicated that they see FoYA as their opportunity to re-enter the church community!



  • I am excited to hear about FoYA's start and am praying that this group will become a powerful vehicle God uses to reach others for Him!
    Thanks for the update Brian!

  • I know personally that this ministry is taking a lot of the pressure off of me. I appreciate that there is something there for college age kids. I had half my prayer answered this week. Next week the other person I'm praying would get there hopefully will.
