Student Research

a Biblical thought...
Then the king said to the man of God, "Intercede with the LORD your God and pray for me that my hand may be restored." So the man of God interceded with the LORD, and the king's hand was restored and became as it was before. (1 Kings 13:6)

a Book thought...
We are not sent to minister to a congregation and be content if we keep things going. We are sent to make war. (p70)
a Dave thought...
It was great to meet with Luke yesterday as we discussed some ideas on how we set up Glenferrie Outreach. Luke is a Swinburne Social Research student who in his honours year has chosen to do his thesis in partnership with the Salvation Army. So for two days a week throughout this year he will be surveying current regional students studying at the Hawthorn campus at Swinburne University. Luke endeavours to discover what are some of the struggles of moving to the city and through this research recommend some ways we can help these students. He will also question them as Australian Gen Y's about their views on our organisation so we can discover first hand what students in Hawthorn think of our 128 year-old brand. I'm sure we will get some interesting results but what better way is there to help us plan ahead than with the views of the people we aim to connect with.

Just a thought.
