The Baptist Student Ministry at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley is a place for establishing relationships. Some have found Christ through this ministry. Many young Christians have found their walk with Christ strengthened. Many have found their spouse and strong friendships. A Christian organization is really not a bad place to search for those particular relationships.
As followers of Jesus, we understand the importance of fellowship. This year, we took our students out on a group date around Valentine’s Day to celebrate each other’s friendships and relationships.
After dinner, we joined in a time of worship and prayer. We set up several prayer stations where students had the opportunity to pray for relationships—restoring broken relationships, praying for a future spouse or whatever seemed appropriate.
It was refreshing to see students not only gather to socialize, but also to spend time in solitude with the Lord. After all, that is the most important relationship anyone can ever have.
