Since many college ministries have Spring Break events this month, I thought I’d send something for you to think about:

Have you designed a process to follow the Spring Break “event”?

Even a ski trip can be followed by a process. Even if your college ministry’s Spring Break is focused on community-building and fun, there can be some sort of a process to follow. Deepen the community that develops. Jump off on some spiritual themes that arise during the trip. Have a reunion, or hold a “debrief” of the conversations along the way.

Of course, this need is all the more obvious when you’ve gone on a mission trip, sent students off to serve, etc..

The point is: A process makes the event MATTER far more. Too many “mountaintop experiences” without lasting fruit dot the landscape of your students’ testimonies: You have the chance to do something different, something with less of an expiration date.
