Why Students Need Each Other

Eason Sewell’s Story

I grew up in the church and was there every Sunday and Wednesday that the doors were open. Around the age of 14, I felt the Lord put a calling on my heart to pursue ministry. So I got a group of my friends together and was like, “I feel the Lord pulling my heart strings to start a Bible study, and I want you guys to be a part of it with me.”

Bible Study with Friends

So our first Bible study, we had about 18 people. Our biggest thing when we first started was not to worry about the numbers. Let’s just be the hands and feet of Jesus, and He will bring who needs to be here.

We meet at my house 99 percent of the time. And 5:30-6:00 p.m. is just time to fellowship and meet people you haven’t met before. Around 6:00 p.m., we head out to the deck, and that’s when we have a time of worship. And then we have a small devotional, whether it be by me or a guest speaker.

All about The Gospel

So the main thing we study here — and probably the biggest thing ever — is just the gospel of Jesus. We’re broken people. We’re sinners. And God sent His one and only Son to die for us so that we can live forever.

We’ve seen God work in almost every way possible…from bringing people that have told me to my face they don’t need Jesus because things that happened in their life to them being the first ones that walk through the door every Sunday.

What Now?

My hope and prayer for the future is that we can just continue to be faithful servants, letting the Lord use us in the way He wants us to be used to grow His kingdom.
