A summer household for university
students in Ann Arbor
Since our founding in 1971, helping young people come to know Christ
and grow in Christian maturity has been one of our main concerns in The
Servants of the Word. The evangelization and bringing to discipleship of
youth has led us to many places and to much frutiful service over these
thirty years. "This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes."
We live in times of unprecedented challenge for young people. Many and
confusing are the voices that cry out for their allegiance. In a world
where right and wrong are blurred and distorted, they must find and stand
for the truth. In a world where selfishness and materialism reign, they
must choose to deny themselves and sell all to follow Christ.
And yet) this is also an age of unimaginabk opportunity. No previous
age has known more potential for the evangelizarion and discipleship of
young people. Truly) at this change of the millennium we find ourselves
in the midst ofa fierce battle for the next generation. As the Easter hymn
resounds, "The Son of God goes forth to war.../who follows in his train?"
To share the good news of Jesus Christ with young
people that they might believe
To establish challenging and character-building
environments that they might grow
To offer mission and outreach opportunities that
they might serve
University Christian Outreach
One of today's fiercest battles— a battle for our future— is taking
place at our universities. The Servants of the Word is at work on campuses
through University Christian Outreach, bringing young people into a personal
relationship with God and a life lived in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Committed Christian relationships and daily discipleship are also UCO
The annual Summer Academy is a live-in seminar offering help to live
as a committed Christian in the modern world. It challenges the mind and
stirs the heart
Evangelistic drama presentations such as 'El Shaddai' provide opportunities
for growth in character, confidence and communication.
