Whenever Clayton’s campus missionary, Morgan, tried to start a Discovery Bible Study or find a person of peace, things got in the way. No one would show up and the commitment level was always low. Whether it was, “the commute is too long,” or “I have too much work,” the whole spring semester presented much resistance.
When Spring Break hit, the campus went online due to the pandemic. Morgan combed the contacts she had made throughout the year and started inviting people to do Bible studies.
Because everything was virtual, not only did Morgan began a Discovery Bible Study, but more people got involved than ever before! They saw multiplication as people were stuck at home and asking if their families could join. Clayton said, “COVID was probably the best thing that could have happened to this campus ministry!”
