If most of the students who are presently in your campus ministry are enormous fans of – and show up at – most of your activities… are you sure that’s a good thing? (And what does this mean for the college minister? See the next post.)
If your ministry, like most, aims to reach as broadly on campus as you can, are you holding a broad enough range of activities? Are the times / days varied enough? Are there plenty of activities mixed in there that some students really, really like… even if others really, really don’t?
Why do we need everybody to show up at everything?
I know this is a tricky thought for those with smaller ministries, but it might at least be worth pondering for a little bit. It seems to me, there might be some advantages to having only a portion of your students interested in any given activity, as long as they’re different cross-sections of students for each activity.
Just a thought. (If you want to be hit even closer to home, see the next post.)
