Overview last year:
The College Outreach Ministry conducted a graduation ceremony at New Vision Emmanuel Baptist Church to celebrate those high school and college students who were graduating from their respective schools. In addition, the Ministry created and mailed 17 care packages to those college students who were attending school out of town. The care packages were sent the start of the fall semester and the spring semester and included school supplies, snacks, toiletries and inspirational books. Lastly, we matched up mentors with the college students who are away to stay connected to their home church and to provide encouragement and support during their studies away.
