Even if you don’t serve in a church-based college ministry, hopefully you are personally involved in a church!

Assuming that’s true – and for you who raise support, this applies doubly for you – have you inquired about non-financial resources the adults around you might provide?

(And this could even involve the parents of students!)

Do any of the adults in your life have access to a lakehouse? Christian books they’re not using anymore that could build a student library? Stuff to donate for a big garage sale? An SUV to borrow? Goods or services from their business you could give as prizes? Job opportunities for students? A great house to meet in? Extra time to volunteer in your office?

On and on and on and on.

(Summer’s a great time to seek these out! And be creative!)
