Student sign-up deadline for Engage: March 27

Only a few days remain for college and seminary students to sign up to be part of this summer’s SBTC Engage teams that will take the gospel to churches and communities across Texas. Engage teams, made up of one preacher/team leader, a worship leader and a children/youth leader, will spend June and July traveling to churches across the state to lead revival services, provide evangelism training and hold sports camps and youth rallies. Last year Engage teams led 112 people to accept Christ as savior. The deadline to sign up to be on a team is March 27.

Engage team members will receive a weekly stipend and have all expenses, including mileage, paid. They will also receive a portion of any love offerings given by the churches at the conclusion of the summer.

Garrett Wagoner, an SBTC student ministry associate and Engage ministry organizer, says his involvement in Engage as a student made a lasting impact on him and his ministry trajectory.

“I was a part of an Engage team for two summers while I was in college, and it was a life-changing experience for me as God launched me into what He has me doing now,” Wagoner said.

Chad Davenport served as a team leader in 2014 and said while the ministry served a plethora of Texas churches, it also ministered to him.

“I was expecting to minister to everyone else, but God revealed some things to me about his character and about his plan for my life,” Davenport told the TEXAN at the end of the summer. “I expected it to be a spiritual high and a mountain top experience. It was more than that. It grew my faith in God and solidified his calling on my life.”
