Name: Liz Reason
I like: Acting, making music, watching films and hanging out with my friends...imagine doing them all at once!
I dislike: I'm gonna go for lactose, which is sad because I love chocolate and ice cream!
What I Do
I work with university Christian Unions in Manchester and Salford (University of Salford and Manchester Metropolitan University). Christian Unions are student-led mission teams operating at the very heart of the UK’s universities and colleges. Here's a little video link to explain it better.
Manchester has one of the biggest student populations in Europe (100,000ish), and probably less than 0.5% of those are committed followers of Jesus - the odds are discouraging; the need is immense. Essentially my job is to to train, equip and encourage Christian students to live and speak for Jesus, and to help get the gospel heard on our campuses - but most of all I would say that what I do is to remind students that God is amazing, that the gospel is mind-blowingly good news, and that God's words are LIFE!! It's challenging, but also very very exciting!
How You Can Help
Prayer - Please if you'd like to receive my newsletters.
Financially - I need to raise £6000 in order to do this year. If you would be interested in supporting me in this way, please .
Contacts - If you live near a CU, then I can probably find an opportunity for you to help - there's often a need for food to give away!!
Grace Church is an amazing church. I love that it's simple, Christ-centred, Bible-centred and has a passion to bring glory to God by 'going' and 'growing'. I love that we are a family and we know each other and enjoy doing things together - especially eating together!Nnamdi
