I love theme days.
Thursday I had three – count ’em, three – different interactions with churches that are investing in college ministry extraordinarily, here in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex.
The first church has provided the requisite patience, allowing the college minister the years and support needed to grow a developed-and-developing college ministry.
The second church has recently decided to invest in their college ministry up-front, investing before the numbers arrive, not after.
The third church’s college ministry has long been established, and the whole church is now reaping the rewards of college students plugged in all over the place. I was told tonight the church’s senior pastor compares college ministry investment to blowing a dandelion – not all the seeds may end up planted locally, but the impact spreads all around the world. What a Kingdom mindset.
These churches are not the norm, but they may be soon.
