14 CSF'ers recently returned from Grand Savanne, Haiti, where we visited with some of our ministry partners and had some opportunities to work alongside them! The team held a Vacation Bible School and did some work projects at the Grand Savanne Church, and also worked with some of the children at the In His Hands Children's Home.
We love that so many students stay in Springfield for the summer! The summer study is the best way to stay connected with other CSF'ers over the next few months. We meet every Tuesday at the Lasley House for a study of James....but get ready for paintball, the Muni, cookouts, and lots of other adventures!
A huge thanks to the alumni, parents, church partners, and friends who joined us for Christian Student Fellowship's annual Fundraising Banquet on Saturday!
We're praising God for His hand at work as we heard stories of students and the lasting impact campus ministry has on lives!

Spring has sprung...things are warming up, flowers are starting to bloom, and new life is everywhere!! We're seeing new life in CSF, too, as students are thinking about what it means to be made new in Christ and taking steps of obedience. Monday night we got to witness Senior Duane Willingham, II, as he obediently followed Jesus' instruction to be baptized. Duane was baptized by his best friend, Danny, while the rest of us celebrated! Other students are continuing to pray about their own decisions.
What could God do with a group of college students who would center their semesters, their schedules, and even their Spring Breaks around HIM?
March 10-15, a group of students from UIS will spend their Spring Break serving and learning from the Somali Bantu Refugee community in Louisville, KY. Never has this trip been more relevant to what's happening in the world - instead of just knowing about the issues surrounding refugees, they'll actually get to know refugees...their faces, their stories, and their struggles.
Campus ministry is giving students opportunities to apply the Word of God as they serve the world around them.
You're invited to watch the big game with us!
