Spring Semester Kicked off with a Rush!!

We're back!!!

An exciting new school year has begun at Citrus College in which the Lord Jesus has granted the blessing for the CCN club to come together again for a brand new journey in the mission to Love God and make disciples. So far the Citrus chapter kicked off the spring semester with their first meeting reviewing the teaching of "Hell's Best Kept Secret" taught by club leader Kevin Nunez. The CCN team explored the confrontational issue of bringing back the use of God's Law in evangelism in which the modern church has forsaken for the past century. The meeting was a great turnout and the topic captivated the team to reach out to the lost, effectively, biblically, the way Jesus did it.

Furthermore, the Citrus College campus has witness the power of God in the last week of winter semester as well as the first week of the spring term when evangelists Steven Gutierrez (A.K.A. Steven the Berean) and Kevin Nunez preached the glorious the Gospel of Jesus in the open air! Students from all over the campus gathered around the concourse to listen as well as share their opinions regarding the future Judgment of God and the grace offered on the finish work of Christ's sacrifice on the cross. Some student's became hostile towards the message by exclaiming their views that God is lenient towards everybody and by asking for forgiveness alone would still grant them access in the kingdom of heaven. One instance a student confronted Kevin and disputed the issue that the God of the bible is imperfect since He claims to be a "jealous" God and that jealousy is a human emotion that cannot be demonstrated by a perfect God. Other people who were present agreed to the student's claims. This particular topic is one that has led many away from the Lord such as celebrity talk show host Oprah Winfrey. However, using the context of God's Holy Law and how God has given life to every man, He was repaid not with gratitude but by rejection as man receives God's blessing and gives the credit to idols. Much like a husband encounters his wife with another man, the husband's jealously is a righteous emotion in which without it would prove that he never loved her. God's jealously for us is a righteous jealousy in which it proves His love for us.

As for week two of spring semester, the school clubs gathered together for the Citrus College "Club Rush" in which each club would promote their group and provided sign ups for students who are interested to join. The Citrus CCN group also attended the rush in which they provided candy, gospel tracts, and fliers for the club meetings and as an added bonus the flip chart made an encore appearance in which people tested their intelligence by taking the "Intelligence Test" as well as hearing how they are able to obtain forgiveness of sins by repenting and trusting the Savior. "...How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!" Romans 10:15

Please pray for the CCN Citrus College chapter so that the Lord will continue to use them to reach out to the Lost by "pulling [them] out of the fire." Jude 1:23

Hey guys!

Although I am on the staff of Campus Crusade, I am into everything you guys are into, including the biblical gospel and open air preaching! Way to go! Your ministry at Citrus would be "a dream come true" for me . . . to get our students to where you guys already are. CCC is not too open, for obvious reasons, however. Keep up the great work . . . You are a breath of fresh air! God bless!


The group!
