“What keeps you up at night?” BWFLI team member Charlotte McNally asked the Asbury University student. Quickly, she responded “What’s Next. Everything looks so shiny now, but I don’t know what is ahead.”
Starting in 2018, Breakfast With Fred Leadership Institute teams will travel to many Christian campuses to engage selected students in in-depth conversations around a table about their future, their faith, and principles and ideas presented by Fred Smith.
