When you give to NYCUP, you don't just invest in NYC, but your reach goes far beyond. Check out what Stephen Rowe had to say back in November at the University of Virginia.
"On Monday I sat in the Chipotle in Charlottesville for 3.5 hours. The line wrapped around the inside of the store and I had the privilege of watching a ton of students and friends from IV pass by my table. Some people came with their small groups, others with housemates, some people ordered a ton of burritos online, and one student even delivered Chipotle to twelve of her friends.
We had been planning the LOGOFF Party for a couple months but I had no idea what would actually happen, if people would actually show up, and if LOGOFF would really take off in our chapter. It’s evident that God is moving and providing in awesome ways and I am really excited to see where Jesus is leading our chapter.
I am the Outreach Coordinator, Sensei of Outreach to some, of the IV Chapter at UVA. That means I oversee the vision and implementation our welcome, evangelism, and justice initiatives. Hosting a LOGOFF Party at Chipotle challenged me to access the needs of our chapter. When people ask, “What can I do about the injustice I see and read about,” it’s my job to make sure our chapter has clear vision, plenty of resources, and tangible next steps.
LOGOFF is awesome because it’s so practical. “I want to fight sex trafficking, but I don’t know what to do.” Allow me to suggest a wonderful acronym. It offers tangible next steps for people who’ve been on global missions and NYCUP a ton of times as well as for people who have never explored a topic like human trafficking. It was challenging to introduce LOGOFF to a big group of people in a setting very different from NYCUP. I had to assemble a grass roots group of volunteers that I called my Party People to help with awareness, training, mapping, and other events. After the Chipotle event, it’s evident that I have so much to learn as a disciple and as a leader." Read the full post here.
If you want to invest in transformative leadership experiences like this, we've got the opportunity for you! I’m running a marathon on February 22nd to raise awareness and funds for NYCUP’s launch of the LoGOFF movement.
