I believe I’ve touched on this before, but it bears repeating – and connects with a conversation I had with a college minister yesterday.

Whether you’re a church-based college minister or not, it’s likely you have a plethora of programs available for your students through the local church. Whether it’s Christ-center recovery or mid-week Bible study, special seminars or a men’s retreat, the churches in your town may offer something for your students.

Have you ever considered making a list of what’s available, either in your church or among churches in your town? This seems an automatic change to buttress your ministry to various niches and various needs, without finding the student leaders or staff to do it. And in many cases, getting students in an intergenerational context would be a win on its own!
