Spiritual Emphasis Week
Spiritual Emphasis Week took place from Sunday, February 9th, to Friday, February 14th. On Sunday, Hargrave hosted the musical group Southside Regional Celebration composed of different Christian denominations from across Southern Virginia. They shared the Gospel through song and the message of Dr. Sheila Isom. On Monday and Tuesday, a CCM band from Liberty University, Relinquish, joined guest speaker Seth Peterson (student minister at First Baptist Church of Norfolk, Virginia) to bring a powerful evangelistic message that led to some cadets making a decision to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. On Wednesday, Christian rapper Chang3, Corey Thomas (hailing from Virginia Beach, Virginia) delivered an energetic performance that inspired cadets to rise in joy and praise God. On Thursday and Friday, the band Red Letter Society joined guest speaker Jordan West (hailing from Richmond, Virginia) for an incredible worship experience. Again, several cadets took the next step in their faith journey on the path to becoming true disciples of Jesus Christ.
Throughout the week, our special guests interacted with our cadets across campus even participating in our Cadet/Advisor Spiritual Emphasis dinner. In the evenings, we had enlightening small group discussions where cadets shared stories of heartbreak and triumph as well as asking some difficult questions about faith.
