Though God always provides, there are times in which God’s provisions are more readily obvious than others: this is one of those times. When Erik Naylor took over responsibility for COM’s collegiate ministry, part of the task he agreed to was developing a strong team of volunteers and staff to share the gospel on ASU’s campus, integrate those God saves into church membership, and send graduates out with a biblical view of Christ and his church all around the world. No small assignment! The Lord has faithfully brought COM – in only two years – a well-respected international ministry (Life Among the Nations), many students, volunteers from all strata of the church, and new staff members. Maddie Pinto is yet another example of God’s gracious provision.
Starting Thursday, June 1, Maddie will be COM’s new Director of College Ministry. Under Erik’s leadership, she will provide oversight to the American side of our collegiate ministries. Erik will be Executive Director of Collegiate Ministries, providing leadership to both the American and Life Among the Nations ministries. This will enable Erik to focus on team and support development, discipleship with college guys, and the stewardship of expanding influence God is giving us with other churches. Maddie brings spiritual maturity, an outstanding set of gifts, years of collegiate ministry experience, and a deep love for Church on Mill. Pray for her as she transitions, and for the whole team as they work over the summer to hit the ground running when the Fall semester begins.
Next time you see Maddie thank her for joining the team!
