24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:24-25

God is so good. He is so good to provide us with community with His people and with Himself. We are only a little over a month into core and the Lord has been showing up in big ways. I have watched Him form sweet friendships, create a safe place for our girls to be real and cry, and bring in girls who are in desperate need for community and friends. Last week I met a girl at outreach and she ended up coming to core! She told us that night she had been searching for a community like this for two years and was so thankful she had come.


These are the Core Values we decided on in our first week in core! One of our sweet girls designed a poster for us!
I already feel a deep care and love for these girls. I can't wait to see how God moves in all of their lives this year. I am continually blown away that I get to be a part of this. 

Core at Fall Camp!

This past weekend we had Fall Camp and it went so well. We talked about making decisions for Christ and being steadfast in sticking to them. Whether that be a decision to spend more consistent time with Him or a decision to put effort into our mental health by combating the toxic thinking patterns we ascribe to. I got to talk with one of our girls at fall camp about how things were going. She shared that she was feeling God's presence for one of the first times in her life. For the first time she is allowing herself to process the idea of a sovereign God who loves her deeply. It is sweet moments like this that remind me how important college ministry is. 

This is Ashlie who I am leading core with this year!

Thank you for making this possible through your support! Young adults lives are being changed at UTA and you are a part of it!

Prayer Requests:

  • For God to continue to move in core, FOJ studies (Focus on Jesus bible studies), and at TNF (Thursday Night Fellowship, our weekly big group meetings)
  • That the seeds planted in Fall Camp would blossom into growth in Jesus

Many Blessings,
Emily Umstead
