So in keeping with yesterday’s theme…
How confident are you that your upcoming December graduates will find – and commit well to – a strong community of believers within three months of graduation?
Go ahead – think of someone specific who’s graduating in December (or in May). But not just somebody staying around town. Not even somebody going back to their hometown. Someone going to a new environment altogether, who will have to start pretty much from scratch on the whole “Christian community” thing.
How likely are they – really – to find a solid, strong community? How likely are they to jump right in, plugging in well from the outset?
If this isn’t a strong aspect of how we send them into the world, then what case do we have against parents and youth pastors who don’t prepare students to find solid churches and solid campus ministries when they “release them into the wild” of college?
