Around 60 UTC students engaged in the Encounter Worship service and stayed for lunch Sunday. It is a part of Ridgedale’s effort to reach out to college students in the Scenic City. Ridgedale is very interested in helping college students become followers of Jesus and grow as believers. On Wednesday of last week the entire RBC staff hosted a sandwich lunch at the Baptist Collegiate Ministries building on the UTC campus for about 100 students. On Tuesday evening, Encounter pastor, Chad Poe, taught a group of Students at the Student Center. Student minister, Ryan McBride and Children’s Minister, Kayla Stevens were along to initiate some relationships with the young adult Mocs. Sunday Evening, the college Bible Study coordinator, Ruth Ann Johnson and Music Minister, Michael Johnson hosted a college small group meeting in their home. All told the entire staff and several Ridgedale members had the chance to interact with these students during the first week of classes. One student from Nashville, joined RBC Sunday under a watchcare membership and will be helping disciple middle school students while working with Ryan McBride. About 25 or so students currently engage in college Bible Study at RBC each Sunday morning. Senior Pastor Doug Plumlee asks for your continued prayers and support for this ministry that is so important during this time in a person’s young adult life.
