Today 720 high school students from 39 youth groups descend on the campus of Moody Bible for the Sonlife SEMP conference.  SEMP stands for Students Equipped to Minister to their Peers.  Jesus taught his disciples to be fishers of men, so we focus this entire week on helping students reach their friends for Christ.  Our goal will be to focus the training of these students in peer evangelism, utilizing the city of Chicago as the harvest field.  Over 50,000 students have been exposed to this classic training and outreach experience over the years.

 The theme of this year’s SEMP is Muve…as in U join the Movement of God among the youth of this world.  Students will be trained in outreach and apologetics.  On 3 afternoons the students will hit the street to share their faith.  On the last afternoon each student will write/email/text 4 unsaved friends back home to start a spiritual conversation that will be continued when the SEMP student returns home.  Each year we see many people trust Christ in Chicago during the week of SEMP, but we are most excited about building outreach habits in the lives of ministry level students that will help them win the lost as they go through life.

 Here’s how you can pray:

  • Safe travel into Chicago today and inside Chicago during the week
  • Major unannounced construction at Moody is putting some facility space at risk.  Pray all these things work out
  • Great times of training, teaching and worship
  • Good weather so people will be hanging out where our students can engage them
  • Courage for students to share
  • Lots of spiritual discussions
  • Lives saved during the week
  • For God to be preparing hearts of lost student friends back home
  • That evangelism habits would be built for a life time. 

Thanks in advance for your prayers this week.
