CAMPBELLSVILLE — In an historical event for Campbellsville University’s Church Outreach program, 26 churches were served in Mercer, Boyle, Lincoln and Marion Counties during a Day of Kingdom Advance from the Conover Education Center Sunday, April 15.

Area pastors and 150 students, faculty and staff gathered at CU Harrodsburg’s new second building to pray, encourage and fellowship together before going out to individual churches. President Michael V. Carter and his son Dr. Wes Carter welcomed students, faculty, staff and local pastors to the Day of Kingdom Advance with a charge to remember to let the Spirit of Christ lead in ministering to the many needs of people around them.

CU Church Outreach strives to give college students practical ministry experience through serving in churches. The desire is that through this, Christ will change lives, and that the university will remain connected to churches across the Commonwealth and beyond.

Dr. G. Ted Taylor, vice president of University Outreach, said there were over 2,600 people reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ on that day – “to God be the glory.”
