RUF Mid-Atlantic Fall Conference 2014

We just returned from the RUF Mid-Atlantic Fall Conference which was held at Ligonier Camp and Conference Center in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania. RUF's from Maryland, Pitt, Penn State, Lehigh, Millersville and Delaware State (new CM Daryl Watley was on board!) were the main groups in attendance. But as you know RUF is seeking to grow and the word is getting out so there were also students who came from: Frostburg State as well as WVU, Messiah and UMBC. Former CM and Mid-South Area Coordinator Les Newsom preached 4 excellent and challenging messages dealing with Faith, Belief, Intellect and Knowing. Students were pressed to see that Biblical faith is not "faith in faith" or faith in the abstract but faith has an object and that of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Scriptures were applied and thought about through small groups interactions. A big thanks to Derek Bates, CM of Pittsburgh who was our camp director for putting on an excellent Conference. A lasting picture in my mind was the combined worship team of Penn State and Maryland who led us in praise.
