It’s easy for this to be a blow-off week college ministry-wise. But regardless of your ministry’s plans, it’s important to realize that many of your students will undertake really important experiences this week.

For some, it’s the first week home in awhile (or all semester)

For most, it’s the longest time spent at home this semester.

For some, it’s feeling stuck on campus because they can’t go home, don’t want to go home, or don’t really have “home” like some do.

The question is, do you know what your students will face this week, and how they’re feeling about it? Or if your ministry is too large to know the individual “sheep,” do their individual “shepherds” (small group leaders or others) know what each student is facing?

The stakes are higher this week than we often remember.
