Why College Ministry is a Big Deal

Right now we are praying for a leader at The Vine to lead a ministry to focus on the 50,000 students at the University of Wisconsin.  Know anyone?

This article makes my heart burn to pray for God to provide that sooner than later.

Jon Nielson writes a great post along these lines.  Here are his points.

  • First, these young people are setting the spiritual trajectory for their entire lives.
  • Second, these young people will overwhelmingly make their choice for or against investment in the local church during these years.
  • Third, these young people bring life, vibrancy, service, wisdom, and energy to our church bodies now.
  • Fourth, college students will for the most part leave our churches and pursue jobs and professional callings around the world.
Read the rest to understand his reasoning for these points.
