Who’s coming to your college ministry to ask for assistance?
Would campus officials, local churches, community non-profits, or anyone think of your ministry as a resource for volunteers, “owning” a special event, Help in a crisis or with a pop-up need, or other help?
Getting there requires relationships, availability, and a history of helpfulness. So the knocks on the door serve as a little bit of an assessment. While every context is different and you probably shouldn’t expect fifty asks a year (and I’m not suggesting you should say Yes to every ask either), a college ministry’s role in the campus community should lend itself to being a help.
