Greetings from Armenia, Colombia!
I am here with Kairos students from across Colombia who are attending their first Kairos Gathering. The group ranges in age from early 20s to mid-60s, and the ministry contexts in which these students are engaged range from business to youth ministry and urban to rural.
With me are Geoff Hartt, Kenny Wallace, and Jay Campo, all of who are affiliate faculty with Sioux Falls Seminary. Our week has included worship, prayer, case study discussions, teaching, new student orientation processes…and coffee. Lots of coffee.
Students who attend gatherings in Sioux Falls and Edmonton often say that the case studies are their favorite part of the gathering. This has been reflected here as well. Having a safe place to talk through questions that emerge from one’s ministry context is something students greatly appreciate. The presence of the Spirit in those conversations, the way that students pray with one another, and the wisdom that emerges from the groups is wonderful to see. Praise be to God.
