Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Nick and Erin Owens at the University of Delaware. This RUF is in its third year, but they have grown rapidly.

Mother and baby are fine, and Nick is thinking about the spring semester. His ministry at the University of Delaware is developing very well. I spent most… Continue reading December 18, 2017 — New England Universities
