Pray for these three Virginia Tech campus ministry workers

Topic / Uncategorized

Prayer candlesThree students who graduated from PBU the year before me are serving at New Life Campus Fellowship, a campus church at Virginia Tech of about 1,000 people.

  • Terri Dewey (worship arts)
  • Chris Backert (pastor, teacher)
  • Dom Saia (equipping ministry)

Please remember to pray for them as they minister to students on the campus of Virginia Tech.

Here’s how they’ve responded so far:

Tonight (Monday), we had a prayer vigil at 8pm. Student leaders throughout [nlcf] opened their apartments to those on campus who didn’t want to sleep in the dorm tonight.

This week, our staff will be on call & available to anyone who needs us. We are letting everyone know set places they can find us on campus, and intentionally going into the dorms as much as possible. We will be attending the convocation on campus Tuesday at 12noon, and we are working to plan a prayer vigil on Wednesday mid-day. We will also have this Sunday’s weekly gathering devoted entirely to responding to this week’s events.

Terri, Chris and Dom need our prayers. I can’t imagine the intense pressure, stress and grief they must be addressing on their church’s campus and even experiencing themselves. I guess I feel higher level of responsibility to pray for them because, although they probably don’t remember me, I had several classes with all three of them in Bible college and remember their service on the PBU campus for the three years that we shared there.
