This is a very simple “assessment” for your college ministry that will require a little bit of thoughtfulness (and a good dose of honesty!).

Is your college ministry structured in such a way that it encourages the development of solid, spiritual, fun friendships?

Some ministries are. Some aren’t. But it’s important to realize that just having a fun Large Group Meeting or having well-attended small groups does NOT mean friendships are likely to form. Not even big, fun events are automatic “community-builders,” despite what it’s easy to assume.

How ’bout your ministry? Do friendships form? Do they form because you’ve intentionally fostered an environment that helps?
