He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together....

Hello Everyone,

We are just starting off the second semester of the MWSB Venture Program 2010-2011. We are welcoming back the Venture students and the First year students at the beginning of this new year. During this first week we will be doing a re-orientation session with the Venture students, refreshing their duty training, talking about break and catching up. This first week they will be in class with Pastor Bryan Hughs of Grace Bible Church in Bozeman, MT. They will be studying the book of Colossian. This book is fitting for the return and beginning of the 2nd semester as it is centered around the theme of Christ. "He is before all things and in Him, all things hold together"..... As we have focused much attention on the message of the gospel this past semester, we will continue to emphasis the centalilty of Christ in ministry and life. He goes before us in this Venture program, and He alone holds it together. Pray during this first week as they are jumping back in and catching up with their fellow students. Pray for their hearts and minds as they go into studying the book of Colossian as well. Parents, we would like to thank you for you participation in the lives of your sons and daughters over the break. We hope and have been praying that their presence would leave a blessing in your homes and that they would draw much encouragement from you as parents.
During these next few weeks they will be making schedules for memorizing 3 chapters of scripture this semester, they will be reading and doing pre-course assignments for Spiritual Warfare class, and going on a Winter Camping/ Ice Climbing class for a week. They are in for an awesome time and we are glad to be with them. Pray for us as we lead, that we would show them examples of godly, Christ-centered leadership, and we would know which direction to lead them.
Thanks for joining us in this journey! Blessings to you all. In Christ,

Adam and Brooke Jordan

"15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross." Colossians 1:15-20
