Jordan Cheng - Chapman University Graduate
"Being a local intern with FCAV has been such an amazing experience! The biggest thing I took away from it was the importance of a Christian community. Up until junior year of college, it was often me struggling with life alone. While knowing that I needed God in my life and having a strong conviction to follow after Him, I could never experience Him... I hung out with the jocks, “popular” kids, fraternity brothers, but never any Christians. Christians, in my opinion, were always weird, dull, un-athletic, and I could never get along with them.The moment I got plugged into FCAV, my life, my view, and my experience with God completely changed. In 1 John 4:7-21, it talks about the necessity of loving others in order to know God and have his love be made complete in us. Christians are called to love one another. You won’t experience many communities that love like FCAV. We need to be loved by others so that we can experience God’s love in a more TANGIBLE form. We can’t see God, but being around FCAV and experiencing the Godly love they have to offer gave me a much clearer picture of what God looks like. FCAV made life a journey with not just myself, but with God too, for you can’t do life with yourself and God without doing life with others first!"
