Summer Link Charleston
Today’s college students are tomorrow’s world-changers! One of the best ways to influence the next generation of leaders is to invest in the lives of college students today. Centerpoint church will play an active role in this vision again this summer through the ministry of Summer Link. Summer Link is a seven-week intentional training strategy to help equip college students in their faith and build solid spiritual foundations in their lives.
We will have 10-15 students investing their summer in knowing Jesus and making him known here in Charleston. This will be done through Bible study training, evangelism training, discipleship groups, worship, prayer, outreach and serving. Our students will be serving at Centerpoint on a weekly basis as well as participating in various ministries within the city. We trust that the students who participate in Summer Link will not only be better equipped as leaders on the campus but as laborers for a lifetime. Please join us in praying for God’s transformational work of grace in the lives of these students!
Many of the Summer Link participants are students in Charleston and actively involved in the life of Centerpoint. But we also have students coming to join us from Clemson, Anderson and Virginia Tech. So we have a unique opportunity to invest deeply in the lives of college students who will have a far-reaching impact for many years to come.
How can I get involved?
I’m glad you asked! It is our desire that our studetns not only have great interactions with each other, but also with the Centerpoint Church family. So here are a few ways you can invest in the next generation:
1. Be a Host Family - We are looking for a few families to host 1-3 students during June and July. What a great way to live and model the gospel and impact students through life-on-life interaction.
2. Host a Summer LINK event - The students will have “Theme Training" (dinner, worship and teaching) on Tuesday evenings and “Socials” on Friday evenings. It would be ideal to have some of these events in the homes of Centerpoint members to encourage integration into the church family multi-generational influence.
3. Invite a College Student Over - Students may need a place to relax, enjoy a meal or do some laundry. They love hanging out in people’s homes and getting to know their families. Please reach out for a Sunday afternoon meal or another free time during the week.
4. Pray - One of the best investments you can make is to pray regularly for the Summer Link team. Pray that God would use this experience to shape and mold them into mature followers of Christ.
Summer Link begins June 2 and ends July 27 and will be led by Ben Patton, one of our Generation Link residents. Pleas contact us and let us know how you want to get involved:
