"Five Faith Foundations" at 2015 Collegiate Fall Conference

The 2015 Fall Conference brought over 150 students to Jordan Park Camp this weekend. 

More than 150 students from Drake, Grand View, and DMACC attended the 2015 Fall Conference this past weekend at Jordan Park Camp. Students and young adults from churches in Ames, Cedar Rapids, and Minneapolis attended the conference as well.

The weekend, hosted by Campus Fellowship, offered students an opportunity to take time away from work and school and focus on hearing from God and His Word. Pastor Dan Rude spoke five times throughout the three-day conference, addressing five key foundations to the Christian faith. "My prayer is that by the end of our time, you will own your faith," Dan said.

Dan's emphasis on the ownership of faith resonated with Drake student Apple Lim and encouraged her efforts to love students on campus. "It is very refreshing to us as we do outreach to people. How we can help people own their faith–sustainable and strong faith," Apple said.

Campus Fellowship has ministries on Drake, Grand View, and DMACC campuses. 
The conference challenged students to think about who God is and strengthen their foundation of faith. Students also enjoyed bonfires, a flag football tournament, sand volleyball, and free time to fellowship with one another throughout the weekend.

"Dan is very clear in both providing evidence in scripture and giving visual examples to remind and grind the truth into our minds," Apple said. "It impacted and encouraged me a lot just seeing my brothers and sisters spend their time at the conference, wanting to grow and learn together with me in His knowledge."
