OH WOW, it has been over a quarter of a century...
[...let me pause to process that...]
I first came to Park Rapids,MN in the fall of 1994 [Thanksgiving Break]. I was a college student, and my first connection with FB - Faithbridge Church & Faith Student Ministry FSM [then Faith Baptist - Rock-Solid Youth Group], was on a frozen pond playing broomball with kids from the Youth Group. I would connect a couple more times, guest speaking, retreats etc..., before moveing permanently in 1996.
I considered my move to Minnesota as a missionary plant - but had no idea that we would take up a more permanent residency here in the Northwoods. As I reflect on the last 20+ years - I believe God has gifted us with a Fruitfilled-Life, makeing this "home" for the better part of my livelyhood. It has been a great community to raise our children, and our extended family @ Faithbridge has no doubt been the catylist for so much growth in our lives. Though we are grieved to leave so abruptly due to unforseen circumstances, we will forever treasure the memories and relationships that have deeply impacted our lives. This is the final post of the QnR blog (Rebuffering.blogspot.com). It dates way back 2013-2022, and before that we had an archived website (FSMwird.com) from 2003-2012. There are additional social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Spotify) that also tracks the last decades as well, some of them are still archived, while others of them no longer exist do to membership fees.
I wanted this final QnR post to offer some encouragement and hyperlinks to NEXT things...
Encouragement - FSM or whatever new name it may transition to will always have a tender spot in my heart. I'm so grateful for the ADULT-LEADERS who put up with my antics, and assisted the maturation of so many students over the years. I'm so proud of the legacy that STUDENTS have left at FSM. By and large, so many students have went on to have Kingdom Sized contributions, many of them pressing into ministry & missions far beyond our expectations...
May God continue to multiply the Student Ministry in the decades to come.
HYPERLINKS - FSM & the Campbells will continue to archive and jounal into the future... so here are a few links to follow forward or flashback to yesteryear.
