Hello! I’m Jane, and I have been on staff with SOON New York for four years. It has been some of the most rewarding and most beautiful times of my life. God has allowed me to witness students coming to Christ, becoming excited to spend time with Jesus as they grow in their faith, and being sent into the world after college – continuing to live out their faith in their workplaces through challenging times.
This is my story with SOON: when I first entered college, I was lost and was chasing after vocation as a means to fulfill my purpose in life and my parents’ expectations of me. My first year, I ran away from God and tried to do things on my own. In sophomore year, God led me to join SOON and humbled me, changed me, and led me to take my faith more seriously. After having been a part of SOON Movement throughout most of my college years, I joined full time staff because God reminded me of His faithfulness and love over my life. I believe that He has called me to be a part of His transforming of students’ lives as He has transformed mine.
I am reminded of my purpose and calling through these verses: “For the love of Christ compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.” 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
What a privilege it is that we can live for Him who died for all and partake in helping to fulfill the Great Commission in this generation together. Thanks be to God for your partnership in prayer and finances! May the Lord bless you abundantly as you give.
