Over the past few years, we’ve seen growth in small groups, leadership development, mentoring, and service opportunities for college students and young adults. Among the leaders of these small groups are Faith Fox (a junior Christian Ministries major at IWU), and Cody Hammonds (a junior Worship Ministry major at IWU), both of whose spiritual moorings have been strengthened through involvement at CWC.
“I felt insecure about my relationship with God since I didn’t grow up in the church,” Faith reflects. “Being part of CWC has enabled me to see how God views me and to live in freedom of being a child of God.”
Cody Hammonds—a junior Worship Ministry major at IWU—has found freedom at CWC through deeper involvement with the lives of volunteers at CWC. “I love seeing people in college/young adult ministry wanting to serve alongside the community of Marion. The love that this group of people have for God and others has given me life and belief in the community of Marion.”
As they’ve gotten involved in various part of the Church (Faith in JC Bodyshop and College/Young Adult Ministry, and Cody in Worship Arts and College/Young Adult Ministry), both Faith and Cody recommend that those attending CWC find an avenue through which to get more deeply involved.
“Getting involved is so valuable as you really get to know the people and heart of College Church,” says Faith. “Everyone should be involved at their church in some way, shape, or form,” said Cody. “I have found so much love in the lives of the people who serve here.”
