Today I’m at Northeastern University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. I’ve never been to this university, but I’m excited to meet some of the young women who attend. Tonight our office is hosting a special Girls Night Out event with speaker and author Marian Jordan.

I was first introduced to Marian two years ago when a friend called me from Houston and encouraged me to hear a young woman from his church who was beginning her writing and speaking ministry. When I hear the words, “Seriously, she’s the next Beth Moore”, I just chuckle. For now, at least, Beth, seems to be the “standard” by which other women speakers compare themselves.

What I have discovered is that Marian is not another Beth Moore. Which is really good thing. Because Marian is herself. She has an incredible testimony of God’s grace and redemption on her life. She shares passionately from God’s word and she has a calling on her life to reach college-young women with the Gospel.

Tonight college women will have the opportunity to hear Marian speak from her first book, “Sex and the City Uncovered.” She reveals the lies that our culture has fed to women and presents the truth of God’s word with conviction. Please pray for girl’s hearts to be touched and tender towards the Holy Spirit.

Also pray for mid-October when we’re bringing Marian back to the University of Oklahoma for two Girls Night Out events. One will be focused on sororities and the other will be geared towards the non-Greek crowd.

Who else is reaching college students? Look no further than Baptist Collegiate Ministries that are on every campus in our state. These ministries provide a vital outreach and discipleship for students. We’re excited to be partnering with our BCMs to bring these events to college campuses.
