T.J. has had a ministry on the campus of the Barboursville School for the past 16 years. During that time, hundreds have made decisions to trust Christ as Savior. In 2010, we began Merge Campus Ministries on the campus of Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia. Having this ministry on campus gives us the opportunity to reach college students in a secular environment with the Gospel. Marshall is a university of over 15,000 students from over 100 different countries. Pray for us as we encourage Christian students as they transition into adulthood and as we preach Christ to the lost.
The Lawhon family also works with missionaries in the United States and on the foreign field to organize and lead short-term missions that not only assist missionaries & pastors but also expose Christians to the ministry work that goes on around the world.
