Chowan University Campus Ministry Encourages the Chowan Family to “Share the Well”
During Chowan University Campus Ministry’s annual Share the Well Week, February 13-18, faculty, staff, and students were invited to intersect their lives with the gospel story found in John chapter 4. Minister to the University, Rev. Mari Wiles shared, “Jesus asks a woman for water and it turns into a relationship of transformation. God is calling all of us to do the simple everyday things to help someone’s life be transformed.”
Throughout the week, the campus was given opportunities to “share the well.” On Monday, students packed Valentine’s Day bags and cards for the Chowan heroes that faithfully serve the campus, like the maintenance, housekeeping, and cafeteria staff. The next day, the campus had a virtual visitor with Missy Ward Angalla, Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF) missionary serving in Kampala, Uganda She shared about her call to the ministry and how she “shares the well” assisting refugees through her organization Amani Sasa.
Campus Ministry Wednesday night worship continued the focus of Share the Well. Lead student ministry chaplain and graduate student Patrick Krack’s sermon challenged the listeners with John 4. He shared that “Jesus offers water of greater value – living water.” On Thursday, the campus was invited to the Cross of Christ Chapel for a time of guided prayers.
The week concluded with several members of the Chowan family participating in the Baptists On Mission Disaster Relief Training hosted at Meherrin Baptist Church. Chowan participants trained in the areas of mass feeding, chaplaincy, and administration.
