Kent State Christian ministry

Edge Corp Intern


“Why am I so lonely and can’t find my purpose in life? I thought college was supposed to be the best time of my life?” This is what I was pondering and asking God the whole summer after my freshman year at Miami University (Ohio). 
I went there after deciding I didn’t want to go to a Christian college where I would be forced to live as a Christian, as I had been thinking about doing. I certainly wasn’t forced to be a Christian, or told what to do or not do while there. I didn’t go to church, missed my fair share of class because I hated my major, and didn’t do much other than hang out with friends in my dorm. I tried the drinking and party scene, but pretty quickly figured out it wasn’t for me. After that I didn’t do much of anything. Sometimes I would get up for my 8:30’s, I’d go to my other classes, take a nap in the afternoon, go to dinner with my friends from my dorm, watch Netflix until 2 or 3 am, and repeat.
I knew something was wrong and missing, but had no idea what it was. In the last 3 years, I found two fantastic communities/friend groups to be involved with, found the right major that I enjoyed studying, and found my purpose in life, following and serving God. Now I get to work to help people like myself figure out what they want in life and how Jesus can provide it all.
