2016 Year-End Review: Matthew Nunn

The end of the year is a great time to pause, take a breath, and reflect. It’s a chance to celebrate the wins, take note of the setbacks, and make plans to improve in the New Year. And this practice of pausing and reflecting isn’t just helpful in our personal lives; it’s helpful for our ministries as well. That’s why we reached out to a few of our amazing XP3 Partners to see if they’d be willing to answer a few questions about their year in student ministry.... read more
