One of the most trying times that a young Christian can ever go through is their time at the University. Faced with a myriad of people from different backgrounds, there is always a great temptation to please peers or try out new things.
It is therefore not uncommon for a strong young Christian to give in to invitations to go to the club, try out a new drink or lifestyle that is seemingly “more fun”. It is not uncommon for a fiery brother or sister in Christ to fill generally out of place and eventually willingly have their fire extinguished by certain pleasures.
However, throughout my years at campus, I noticed that it is possible to have fun in Christ. I came to appreciate the power of unity in Christ, and the sense of belonging that it gave to many young Christians who initially were being labelled “joy kills”. Activities that unified various Christian youth gave them a sense of inclusivity.
It is for this very reason that the National Christian Students Association (NCSA) is operating in the various universities, to not only provide avenues for having fun in Christ, but also provide a platform that will catapult young Christians into positions of leadership. This will enable them realize that they are not too young to have dominion.
It is a body that is also enabling young Christians at the various universities to bond further. I believe that beyond the boundaries of their different universities, students will be able to socialize and exchange ideas.
I am very expectant and excited about the Inter-campus festival2018.
