Baptism Service

News Type:  Chaplain's Blog Date:  Friday, November 5, 2021

下午好,福马一家人. 十大外围app在校园度过了愉快的一周! There are few things more exciting than being able to celebrate a person’s decision to follow Jesus. We were blessed by being able to baptize 13 cadets who made that decision earlier this week.

We held a special Corps-wide service on Wed evening to celebrate this important occasion. Our president, Colonel Coggins opened the service with a great explanation of the meaning of baptism for Baptists. In our tradition, baptism is very important, however, it does not save you. 十大外围app得救是因为十大外围app相信耶稣基督. 因为他为十大外围app的罪死在十字架上. You must confess your sins, 相信耶稣是神的儿子, 接受十字架的宽恕.

“如果你用嘴说, “Jesus is Lord,你们心里当信神叫他从死里复活, you will be saved. 因为你们心里相信,才称义, 你要用口说你的信,就必得救.”

Romans 10:9-10

洗礼是十大外围app内在信仰的外在象征. 这是十大外围app向世界宣告耶稣救了十大外围app的方式,无论他呼召十大外围app到哪里,十大外围app都将追随他. 这是一种公开的方式,让十大外围app认识到耶稣的死,因为十大外围app被淹没了;认识到耶稣复活,因为十大外围app在基督耶稣里获得新生命.

After Col. Coggins spoke, Maj. 我和加里·莱迪格很荣幸为这13位年轻人施洗. Cadet Chaplain Elonzo Burroughs prayed for each candidate as he entered the water. 每个人都宣示了他对耶稣的信仰,并承诺终身做门徒,然后被复活进入新的生命.

谢谢你们的祈祷. Keep them coming! 上帝在外围体育做得很好. 你可以在这里观看完整的服务: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRaIwraC1EI&t=1445s

建立不同的特别教堂服务

扎克·克林顿在教堂教书.

 

下午好,福马一家人. We were incredibly blessed this week to welcome a guest speaker to campus. Our FCA leader, 莱迪格少校安排了扎克·克林顿来为十大外围app的学员在本周的一个特别的礼拜仪式上讲话. Zach is a doctoral student in Clinical Psychology at Liberty University. 作为"打造与众不同"播客的主持人, he has interviewed professional athletes like Kirk Cousins and Albert Pujols, 心理健康倡导者,如Dr. Michael Lyles and Chonda Pierce and ministry leaders like Bob Goff and John Eldridge. He also serves as the host of the Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend that gathers nearly 10,000 men each year. 前大学一级棒球运动员, 他被认为是当今一代在表演和心理健康方面日益增长的权威和声音.

Zach taught powerfully, providing biblical insight on God’s design for masculinity. 让十大外围app的年轻人听到这一点是非常重要的,虽然十大外围app都能想象男人做过有害的事情, 这并不意味着阳刚之气本身就是有毒的. 神对人如何被造有一个异象, and the role men are called to play in our world as warrior leaders for God.

他做得很好,给了军队一种思考如何在十大外围app的世界中成长为战士领袖的方式. 使用体育和富有洞察力的个人故事, 他教授了7个c:勇气, commitment, conviction, consistency, character, community, and cost. 我觉得他独特的洞察力和十大外围app的学员很有关系. 许多人在做完礼拜后留下来交谈和祈祷.

我和你们分享这些,是因为我认为这是校园里值得庆祝的一个重要时刻,也是对FUMA的一个优势的一个很好的抓拍. 我喜欢福马学院的学员能接触到伟大的领袖. 不像其他教育场所, 十大外围app的学员每年都有机会与许多不同领域经验丰富、成功的领导者交谈和学习. 在一个给十大外围app的年轻人传递太多负面信息的世界里, 福马确保十大外围app的学员体验神的真理,这样他们就能明白自己在基督里的身份,以及为神领导和重塑十大外围app世界的目的.

In Christ,

Chaplain Jamison

Faithfully Looking Back

News Type:  Chaplain's Blog Date:  Friday, October 8, 2021

      

       下午好,福马一家人. I think that it's easy for people of faith to become discouraged these days. When I feel those feelings start to sneak in, I find it helpful to look back. 不再留恋过去的辉煌岁月, but to reflect on the continued faithfulness of God across the tapestry of life. 其实,我相信这就是十大外围app信仰的力量之一. 圣经本身经常重述神信实的伟大故事,并命令十大外围app每一代重新分享这些故事. 我认为这种对神工作的复述能建立十大外围app的信心,使十大外围app能预见神将来的伟大工作. 在十大外围app准备庆祝下周的建国纪念日之际, 现在是重新思考福马的故事的好时机.

       Every good story has a beginning and ours starts with a party over a hundred years ago. In September of 1898, Dr. 哈奇在招待7位浸信会牧师时,收到了参加贝瑟尔浸信会主日学校会议的邀请. 在与客人一起旅行时,他说. 海切尔经过沃克G大道的一片小树林. Snead farm and commented that the grove would be an ideal location for a school. 尽管这些人当时没有意识到这一点, God had planted the seed that would grow into 外围体育, 影响了成千上万的年轻人.

       当这个上帝赋予的梦想固化成现实,博士. Hatcher clarified the purpose of 外围体育 in the first catalogue; "The best attention will be given the physical, 学生的社会和宗教训练." This eventually evolved into the now familiar Body, Mind, Spirit commitment.

       福马成立几年后, he observed, “这就决定了广大学生的宗教精神, fervent, 不少学生积极参与学校和社区的宗教运动.“十大外围app看到上帝从一开始就利用十大外围app的学院来改变十大外围app的生活,使十大外围app的世界更美好. 这一点最好地体现在参加当地教堂的学生如此之多,以至于他们在避难所都没有空间了. The practical solution was to split the corps in two; half attending each week. 学生和教师对此都不满意,但信仰能激发伟大和创新的解决方案.

       The FUMA family again dreamed big, resulting in Wicker Chapel and Titmus Tower. My favorite story related to the building of our chapel is that faith inspired one man, Felix de Panicis, to lay all of the 250,000 bricks himself. 这真的是一种鼓舞人心的信仰行为, but perhaps more significant is that he laid out the chapel sanctuary in the shape of a cross. 教堂里的每一次聚会, 无论宗教信仰是否明确, 故事发生在一个提醒十大外围app主耶稣的牺牲和上帝战胜死亡的力量的空间里.

       如果你发现自己对周围的世界感到沮丧, 花一分钟时间回顾和反思过去的故事. Remember that faith in God caused a community to gather together to form a school. 它激励一个人下了250英镑,000 bricks in such a way to always remind us of the Christ-centered purpose of our Academy. Most importantly, 信仰的召唤吸引了一代又一代的男女,他们致力于建设一个充满信仰的未来. These stories and hundreds more like them stand as the foundation of FUMA. 当十大外围app记起神在十大外围app的历史上始终如一的信实, 十大外围app怎能不为他接下来要做的事感到兴奋呢.

In Christ,

FCA See You at the Pole

News Type:  Chaplain's Blog Date:  Friday, October 1, 2021

 

下午好,福马一家人. 很高兴看到上帝来到校园. We're seeing great things happen through our Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) chapter. 给那些不熟悉这职事的人, FCA是一个国际性的事工,旨在装备和授权基督徒运动员活出他们的信仰. FCA's founder, Dan McClanen, noticed the enormous influence athletes had in endorsing merchandise. 他开始感到一种信念,要挑战基督教运动员,让他们利用自己的影响力来分享基督对世界的爱的故事. 通过教练和运动员的影响,耶稣改变了世界,这一愿景在1954年催生了FCA,并影响了全世界数以万计的人.

FUMA的FCA分会由少校Gary Leydig领导,对十大外围app学员的生活产生了巨大的影响. MAJ Leydig leads a weekly huddle on Monday nights at 6:15 that's averaging over 30 cadets. 他们聚集在一起,让这些年轻的运动员和领导者在信仰上成长,并学习如何影响他们的校园和社区,以荣耀神. 正是在这些会议上,神呼召Burroughs学员出来,作为一名学员牧师服务,8名学员决定寻求洗礼. God is moving!

FCA还在全年举办一些特殊的精神机会,包括参加全国See You at the Pole活动. On September 21st, 全国各地的学生聚集在学校的旗杆前,为彼此祈祷上帝, 他们的社区和十大外围app的国家. 今年的主题来自雅各书4章10节:“务要在主面前自卑,主就必叫你们升高。."

We woke up to pouring rain and so moved part of the event into the chapel. 学员Elonzo Burroughs向十大外围app传达了一个重要的信息,那就是身边有一个能帮助你成为上帝想要的人的团队. Undeterred by the rain, many then gathered around the pole for a time of prayer. One by one, cadets passionately prayed for their friends, family, fellow cadets, and our nation. It was a powerful moment! 直到下周,继续为福马祈祷吧.

In Christ,

欢迎来到牧师的博客

本·贾米森和他的妻儿.

下午好,福马一家人. My name is Ben Jamison and I'm the new Chaplain here at 外围体育. 圣经在约翰一书中告诉十大外围app, 十大外围app将所看见所听见的,传给你们, 叫你们也与十大外围app相交.(约翰一书1:3a)约翰以这样的方式开始他的信,因为在讲述神所做的事时,有一种力量. 它把十大外围app聚集在一起,宣告上帝是积极的,并努力克服十大外围app世界的黑暗. 我想和大家分享上帝所做的伟大的事情,所以我开始了一个每周的博客,这样你们就可以听到校园里的工作. Check back every week and I hope that it will encourage you in the faith.

我很期待能在这一年的时间里了解你们这里有一些我的故事. I have served in a variety of roles over my nearly twenty years in ministry. 我在三个教堂做过牧师, 当过学生牧师和牧师,但经历了这一切, my central passion is to develop Christian leaders who can advance God's kingdom in our world. 我认为清晰是很重要的,所以让十大外围app来解释一下这意味着什么.

Leadership guru, John Maxwell, once said, "Leadership is about influence. Nothing else.“领导者会对他人产生影响. I love that 外围体育 is in the business of training young men to lead. 十大外围app的学员了解到,他们可以影响他人,以及如何利用这种影响,取得伟大的成就.

这对有信仰的人意味着什么? As a Virginia Tech grad, 但我绝对不是克莱姆森的粉丝, 我确实很尊敬他们的教练, Dabo Swinney. 他是一个信奉上帝的人,曾经说过, "I will be accountable to God for this: what did I do with all those kids he gave me? 我做了什么来建立他的王国?" In other words, 他的工作是影响孩子们赢得足球比赛,但是, from a faith perspective, 足球只是一个提升上帝王国的平台. 值得记住的是,无论十大外围app被给予了什么位置, teacher, coach, CEO, homemaker, student, etc. 是十大外围app为基督影响人的平台吗. 今天的学员将继续领导明天的世界. 我想让他们把这些平台当作生意来用, 政治和宗教领袖, 带领十大外围app的国家和世界走向荣耀上帝的道路. 

想一下十大外围app信仰的故事. Jesus took twelve men and a handful of others and radically reshaped our world. Just think about what God can do through the lives of our 289 cadets! 我很高兴能成为这类故事的一部分. In fact, we're already seeing some young men step up in faith leadership. Allow me to introduce you to two cadets who are helping with the chaplaincy work on campus.

学员Elonzo Burroughs的照片
Cadet Elonzo Burroughs

Cadet Elonzo Burroughs is one of our PG football players and is new to the FUMA family. After having powerful God moment at our FCA Bible study with MAJ Gary Leydig, 巴勒斯开始每晚和他的同伴们一起祈祷. Within a week, 他在晨间小教堂主持祷告, inspiring his fellow players to help with chapel services and even preached at Sunday service.

Cadet Brandon Austin

Cadet Brandon Austin is a senior who is serving as a Platoon Leader for Bravo Company. 在经历了上帝在召唤他去服事更多之后, 他也开始和他的学员们一起祈祷. 他现在主持熄灯号前的夜间祷告和周日晨拜时的田园祷告.

这两个年轻人已经产生了巨大的影响,影响了其他学员,让他们在信仰上走出来. I look forward to sharing their stories with you in the coming weeks. Until then, pray that God will continue this exciting work in our cadets.

In Christ,

Chaplain Jamison
