Eric Chabot Ministry Update

March 2019

Greetings from Columbus, Ohio!

We are finally getting into the spring weather here in Columbus, Ohio. It has been a long winter. 

“I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist” at The Ohio State University 

After students got back to classes in early January, we had about three weeks to get ready for our event called “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist.” Dr. Frank Turek, who has been to Ohio State University in the past did an outstanding job again on the book he co-authored with Dr. Norman Geisler. We are beyond grateful for the turnout. We ran out of space, and it ended up being a standing room only event. I have included some pictures in this update. Once again, this shows me we live in a culture where people have plenty of questions, and they want to see someone speak on important topics. 

Outreaches on the campuses

Despite the winter weather, we have been able to go inside to do some outreaches. One of them is called, “Are You a Good Person?” This allows us to ask students to think about what we mean when we say “good,” and then it allows us to show them God’s standard of goodness is something we can’t achieve. Thus, the Messiah is the only One who is perfect in the eyes of God. Another outreach is called, “What’s Your Identity In?” This allows us to ask students what they find their identity in. If they don’t know who God is, they have rejected their core identity, which is being an image bearer of God. Please pray for all the students we encounter. We are continually having fruitful discussions with people and we pray God will do His work in each student we meet.  

 Meetings on the campus

This term on campus, during our weekly apologetic/equipping meetings, we have addressed topics such as The Historical Jesus, The Reliability of Acts, Decision Making and the Will of God, and others. Please pray for students to find us and that these meetings will make a huge difference in the lives of those that attend.

Outreach and Event: March 29, 2019

As I write this, I am preparing for a day of outreach and teaching at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. I will be teaching some Bible studies and, along with some other campus ministries, we will be doing a campus outreach on the Resurrection in the afternoon. Then in the evening, we will be doing a Resurrection presentation. Please pray for students to be receptive and that God will bless this day. 

Future Student Leaders 

As I have said in the past, we have the only two apologetics ministries located on The Ohio State University and Columbus State Community College campuses. Between both of these schools there are nearly 100,000 students. The need for these ministries on both campuses is greater than ever. My goal is to provide some internships for students who have graduated and have also been a part of our ministries on these campuses. I already have some interested students. Please pray that God will direct these students and that His will come to pass. If you want to partner with us on a monthly basis, please go to our online link at cjfm.org/ericc.
