Jamil led fellow students using a wealth of personal and professional experience. An alumna of the University of Maryland, she was active in a student outreach ministry. A clearly pronounced commitment to evangelism emboldened her to speak for Jesus on campus. Other students began seeing her witness and followed suit.
They followed her to University Baptist Church and began advancing a vision to see all peoples of the world know, worship and grow (KWaG) as disciples of Jesus Christ. Students followed her in becoming mentors as she co-chaired the Kids Hope USA program. MSU Spartans followed her in creating a series of video testimonies about their dreams for the campus. Jamil coached some of the nervous people and gave them the strength to create personal expressions of faith. Click here to see Jamil tell her own story:

Jamil has continued to establish herself as a leader among student ministry leaders. Shortly after I began seeing an uptick in student participation at University Baptist Church, I asked a core of students to work with me. Jamil, and her peers at MSU responded, and Connection is the result.
