groups worth considering for the recruiting roster

Yesterday’s post had a lot of links that might take some time to digest, so today’s platter is purposely a bit more bite-size.

One way I think many of us could improve our Fall Recruitment would be to open our efforts to a few less-often “targeted” groups. Are we just trying to grow our groups? Or might God have in mind reaching some particular people who don’t fit the shiny happy freshman mold?

  • Transfer Students
  • Sophomores
  • Introverts
  • Students at other campuses (community colleges or simply other local campuses that would be well-served by participating in your group)
  • Juniors
  • Specific niches within the campus (going deeper into one group / location, rather than broader across the whole campus)
  • Demographics (of any variety) underrepresented in your ministry
  • Students who have just been ministry-hopping so far
  • Seniors
  • Fifth-year Seniors
  • Who else?

  1. I’ve always thought that one of the most untapped group of people in college ministry is athletes and the “artsy” people. A lot of us assume that they are so involved in their craft that we look for the people who “have nothing to do”. This group of people needs just as much attention from people that love Christ.
