ReCreation Weekend

MCH students celebrated their faith during ReCreation Weekend March 22-24 hosted by Spiritual Development.  Students had the opportunity to attend a scavenger hunt, worship services, concerts and listen to a guest preacher during the weekend.

“ReCreation weekend always seems to have a different purpose each year we hold it,” said Kim Clark, Director of Spiritual Development. “This year, I was excited for our students to witness and understand that following Jesus doesn’t have to look one particular way or sound one particular way. God has created each of us with a particular set of gifts and personality. We can and should use those to glorify God. Our faith can be genuine and look very different from our neighbor who also has a genuine faith.”

The guest preacher on Sunday night was Marselo Lozano. Students also heard music from Bus Seven, Femi and AHMADD as well as from former student Calvin Richardson and guest speaker Mike Frazier. 

Frazier is an author and musician from Surviving the Storm Ministries. He has toured with R. Kelly and Stevie Wonder and is currently the musical director for Tyler Perry’s “Meet the Browns.” He is a survivor of a flood that killed his entire family and has struggled with depression and suicide attempts.

“He is a great example of how God can work in and through situations in our lives to bring us closer to him,” Clark said.
