As you approach making upgrades to your ministry (which hopefully is your goal this summer!), it’s helpful to think of two paradigms for campus ministry improvement:

Better at: Developing your ministry’s execution in the things it’s already doing. From big items like small groups to little aspects like announcements, you have opportunities to improve. Probably in everything.

Better what: Developing new ways of reaching your campus or discipline your students. Sometimes even at the cost of old methods.

Some of us easily devote ourselves to one of these. The problem comes if we’re brainstormers at the expense of being developers, or if we’re tweakers but not willing to innovate.

So maybe it’s useful this summer to make sure we do a little (or a bunch) of both.
