One of the things that we did at Staff Retreat was have everyone shared three events that have really impacted their life. One of the events that I shared about was deciding to go to Collin Community College in 2010. I'm really not sure what my life would be like today if I had not decided to go to Collin 8 years ago. I specifically remember sitting at a pizza restaurant in Richardson Texas after touring several community colleges. I was sitting there with my parents as we begin to process and think through which school would be the best to go to. We all really like to Collin. I was incredibly nervous to move 3 hours away from home and attend a school where I didn't know anyone, but I also a a sense of peace about stepping out and going there. Through that decision I discovered FOCUS, matured as a young adult and disciple, along with being given plenty of opportunities to grow and be blessed with amazing friends. I can look back over the last 8 years after deciding to go to Collin and know that the Lord really took care of me. He answered my prayers for friends and community and I'm so thankful now to be continuing to work with FOCUS.

Our 12 pastoral Apprentices began their time on staff on August 1st. Please pray that they'd be able to dive right into relationships with students and their campus staff team.
