As part of our men's outreach, we put on a variety on men's nights throughout the semester. We use these events mainly as a "reach" event to meet new men and begin building relationship with them. We try to be as creative as possible with the events to make them both attractive and accessible to any man on campus.
One creative idea that we had at the beginning of the semester that came from Blake (one of the men in household) was to rent a mechanical bull. A little crazy? Yes! But as the saying goes, "everything is bigger in Texas."To our knowledge, no other SPO chapter has ever rented a mechanical bull. As Texans, the men were pretty proud of being the first to come up with the idea. We decided to rent the bull and have it on campus during finals week.
It was a great success for the students that passed by and for the students already involved in SPO to relax a little in the middle of finals and just have fun doing something a little crazy! We even convinced Fr. Will, the pastor at the student center, to take a ride on the bull.
Please pray for our students to finish finals well and that the Lord might begin to work in the lives of the new men we met at the event.
