Looking back on this year’s SEU Conference

[vimeo id="87212931"] You know at Southeastern University, we don’t just love February because we get to celebrate Valentine’s Day and a few other holidays – we love it because it’s the month when we host SEU Conference. This event is a great opportunity for people of all ages to come and have a real encounter with Jesus.

It’s a chance to come hear some fantastic current-day ministry leaders.

Also, during the conference, the SEU community partners with an organization that is leading the way in a particular cause around the world. Last year, we partnered with the A21 campaign, a powerful organization that seeks to prevent human trafficking through bringing about awareness and educating people about how this issue is impacting the world. They’re doing an incredible job in accomplishing their mission.

This year, we partnered with Compassion International, which fights poverty around the world through sponsoring children in need. They’re a child advocacy ministry that works to release children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to live life to the fullest. We were lucky to hear the story of one benefactor of this ministry and to say his story was inspirational is an understatement. We were able to hear first-hand about the change that is possible when passionate people decide to make a difference in the lives of others.

Needless to say, I was stirred throughout the whole conference, as I saw students become passionate about taking hold of their divine design to become problem solvers in the world. As one great presentation followed another, one question kept repeating in my mind and I want to challenge you today with that same question:

What will you do?

God created all of us for a specific purpose, a mission because He wants you to bring about His good plan in the world. He divinely designed you to be a problem solver in this world. Just like the people working in the organizations I mentioned earlier, you, too, can make a difference in the world. However, it won’t happen through passive existence. You have to get aggressive about your calling and about honing the gifts and talents of your divine design.

The need in the world is great for more people to become the next leaders who will bring about real godly change in the world and in the lives of people. Jesus reminds us that the harvest is plentiful and the workers are few. If you want to become a mover and shaker in the world, it’s time to become a worker and start impacting people. I know you have passions and dreams to do something great. I want this post to remind you that it is possible to achieve those ambitions. It’s time to make a move!

So, my question for you today is, what will you do?
