After coming home from Beach Reach, our leaders at the Texas A&M University-Kingsville Baptist Student Ministry asked, “How can we bring the Beach Reach mission back to our campus?” That question led to a great outreach idea to reach students who normally would not attend BSM. It involves at least 25 boxes of pancake mix and several student volunteers.
After our Thursday night service, 24/7, we go out on campus inviting students who are going out to clubs or are just bored to come join us for some pancakes. After all, who does not have a love for pancakes? Plus, we hand them out for free.
Through this outreach we challenge our leaders to be intentional in sharing the gospel and getting contact information. This outreach has helped our students connect with students we have never even met before.
In order for this outreach to take place, it requires the help of the leadership team and various other students who attend 24/7. This group is made up of full-time students involved in various time-consuming majors. Our students sacrifice sleep in order to be able to reach out to these students. We are out from 11 p.m. through 2 a.m., just serving and having gospel conversations.
Recently, we added a prayer room. We have a hashtag specifically for this outreach: #panout2015. If you see this hashtag on Facebook or Twitter, please keep us in prayer.
“The harvest is plentiful,” and we have had some great conversations and seen people be softened to the message of Christ through this ministry.
