A creative student publication that testifies artistically to how God's Kingdom is advancing in our generation, community, nation, and world. The Witness bases its name on the Greek word martureo found in 1 John 4:14, "We have seen and testify [martureo] that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world."

The Witness is designed for teens to actively use their gifts for God's glory. Whether it is drawing, painting, comics, photography, articles, poetry, editorials, or testimonials, The Witness desires our students to testify of what Jesus has done and who He is.

I’ll let you know when I’m tired of such a view—towering reminders that image bearers can be found here, in need of grace.

Grace doesn’t promise the absence of darkness but the guarantee that the light will soon find us out—all wrongs will be righted and longings overflowing. #latergram #lakemichigan #puremichigan

New seasons. New semesters. New opportunities. In each of these, I am reminded of the one truth that is as old as time itself yet never needs to be refurbished or rebranded: God has pursued us in love by his grace.

The whisper of our lives will suddenly find the fullness of all our longings, caught in the summer showers of restorative grace—when the skies roll back.

“The gospel does not require anything good that man must furnish: not a good heart, not a good disposition, no improvement of his condition, no godliness, no love either of God or men. It issues no orders, but changes man. It plants love into his heart and makes him capable of all good works. It demands nothing, but it gives all. Should not this fact make us leap for joy?” C.F.W. Walther

The past equips the present and anticipates the future, for “[w]hat has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun” (Eccl. 1:9).

"Who stands fast? Only the man whose final standard is not his reason, his principles, his conscience, his freedom, or his virtue, but who is ready to sacrifice all this when he is called to obedient and responsible action in faith and in exclusive allegiance to God—the responsible man, who tries to make his whole life an answer to the question and call of God." Dietrich Bonhoeffer
