Coaching Students with National School Project

My name is Ryan Smith and I am excited to be serving as Illinois Campus Ministry Staff with Decision Point! Decision Point coaches Christian students at public middle and high schools to reach their campus for Christ. I initially joined Decision Point as a volunteer while studying at Wheaton College in 2018 and joined the full-time staff after graduating in 2022 with a B.A. in Economics. As Campus Ministry Staff, my mission is to equip Christian students and send them as missionaries to share the gospel throughout the Chicago area this year.

I live in Wheaton and in my free time enjoy playing soccer, writing, and all things Star Wars.
Why I Feel Called to This Role
I want to serve the Lord in this role because I know how spiritually dark public schools can be. Having been a Christian student in a public school myself, I know how difficult it can be to have a bold faith and share Jesus openly with peers. Having seen many of my peers struggling, I also know firsthand that students really need Jesus in their lives. In addition to this, statistics show that the pandemic has only made these issues worse and increased the need for the light of Jesus to be brought into these dark places. 
Because of this, God has set it on my heart to connect, encourage, and empower students so that they can flourish as confident and capable Gospel leaders on their campuses and bring the message of Jesus to their peers. I believe that the best people to reach students are other students and that no believer is too young to participate in God's kingdom work.
