Have you ever considered what a radical shift might look like?
I’m all for longevity – of individual ministries AND their missions and basic methodologies. Once a college ministry has become as missiological as possible, then consistent improvement through tweaking – not reinventing – should be the norm.
But great missionaries also recognize that reinvention sometimes IS the need.
The church college ministry here recently made that kind of shift, going from a one-campus setup that looked (externally) like Cru or another parachurch approach… to folding into the church’s huge Young Adult ministry for Large Group Meeting but fostering small groups on multiple campuses.
If your ministry had to radically reinvent itself, what would it look like? What COULD it look like?
