Student Spotlight: EveryHeart Ministries

EveryHeart Ministries (EHM) started in the minds of SAU senior Bryce Bauman and junior Jonah Engle when they saw how powerfully God moved during a worship night they hosted in Estes Park, Colorado, last summer.

Together with fellow SAU junior Brandon Valentine, Bauman and Engle joined friends Brennan Joseph, Caleb Hurt and Josh Davis to spend the summer of 2019 traveling to 10 cities to serve and create space for people to encounter Jesus. Bauman explained that the goal was to “see people fall in love with Jesus. And help people form a deep reliance and deep trust in the Holy Spirit.”

EHM reaches out to the communities they visit through service, worship, testimony and the message of Jesus Christ. “The biggest thing with serving [in the communities] was being able to be one-on-one with people where they are,” says Engle. “We’ve been surprised not only by people coming to know Jesus, but also those empowered to go out and do the same thing we are doing.” As many as 500 people have attended worship nights, and Engle was excited to report that they have personally seen over 50 people give their hearts to Jesus at the halfway point in the summer tour.

As the group wraps up their summer travels, they’ve continued to focus on one phrase. “We always say, ‘We never know what’s on the other side of our obedience,’” says Engle. “Meaning that we don’t know what could happen from what we are doing now, but we know God orchestrates everything. We just obey.”

There are no firm plans for the future of EHM, though Engle says, “Wherever we are, we just want to be a voice for the Gospel.”
