First Pursuit

Hello! My name is April, and I am a senior elementary education major. I am excited to be joining the Campus Post this semester! During Opening Meetings, we were blessed to hear from Dr. Shane Lewis. In his initial message, he challenged us to make Christ our first pursuit. Part of pursuing the Lord is turning fuzzy ideals into action.

One of the things I enjoy most about PCC is the variety of opportunities to serve in off-campus ministries. Throughout the past few years, I have sung at nursing homes, witnessed on door-to-door, and taught in Bible Clubs. This Wednesday, over 60 groups of fellow students will present their ministries during the Christian Service Expo.

Use this semester as an opportunity to get involved and pursue the heart of Christ in a practical way. You will never regret making Christian service a part of your college days! Come to the Sports Center on Wednesday night and check out the possibilities. See you there!

    Hey, I’m gonna be a freshman at pcc this fall, and I was just wondering how hard is it to get a job in the Pensacola area?

      Hey Jacob. I’m no expert, but I know that there are jobs off campus and it is possible to study and work. There are rules for girls that do that, I believe they don’t apply as much for guys, but you might want to look into it. Also, PCC has a great employment program that works with you about your schedule and amount of hours. I’ve worked here for 2 summer breaks as well, and I know it has been a blessing for me. I hope this answered your question.

    • I don’t know exactly what the job market is like in Pensacola, but I can tell you that students are able to work off campus, and a number of them do. We would simply ask that you receive approval from the Student Life Office before you accept a position in town. Also, you would not be able to serve alcohol or work on Sundays. You can miss two Wednesday night services each month.

      We also have a great work program on campus, which many students take advantage of. The benefit with the work assistance program is that the jobs on campus are very flexible when it comes to working around your class schedule. You can apply for work assistance online at http://www.pccinfo.com.
