It’s interesting to note here on the blog how my hit count changes in response to the college ministry calendar. Immediately following the second-best week ever, activity this past week – and especially the last two days of this holiday weekend – has been notably smaller.
But I’m not complaining! In fact, I really want to try to match up what I write with our “seasons” as best I can. So in light of that, I’m aiming this week for something I figure could be helpful: A WEEK OF IDEAS, especially designed for your consideration this spring.
(I do realize that some of you are already approaching the middle of your Winter Quarter, but I still think these will be interesting for you to ponder – for incorporation now or in the Spring Quarter that’s a’coming.)
If you’ve got helpful ideas for the spring semester, let me know! I might be able to include them this week.
Since I’ve already written plenty today (I’m going to try to keep this week’s posts short, too), I’ll instead point you to some past ideas that might be worth reading or sharing with your team as you approach the Spring.
And I really would love to hear any Spring college ministry ideas I can share with others!
[I’m including this week of spring-specific posts under the “Frideas” category, so you can see all of ’em.]
some former ideas that fit the spring
- Yesterday’s post asking how many you’ll involve this spring! (How many what?)
- Clean or Crops? reminding us that this semester of campus ministry, like all the others will (and should) be messy
- College Ministry Priorities for the First Week – whether it’s first of the year or first of the semester/quarter
- Commission Your Student Leaders – an old Fridea that’s great for helping everybody understand the role and weightiness of student leadership
- Thoughts on Recruiting (which yes, often happens in the spring, too): Two groups we forget to recruit, SHOW recruitment vs. TELL recruitment, and recruitment done as discipleship (a 3-post series).
- Putting your ministry under the microscope as you enter a new season
- Boosting your creativity by considering new ministry purposes
