"6 Types of Campus Ministers - The Counselor"

The Counselor is a Campus Minister who spends a large percentage of their time doing one to one individual counseling in both crisis and developmental situations. Often, this draws students from a variety of campus groups...not all of whom who are active in the on-going ministry. The strength of this style is giving real help to some struggling and hurting students.

The weakness of this style is the likelihood that this ministry will not involve a large number of students due to the significant amount of time that must be invested in many of these relationships. There is also the possibility that this ministry will become dominated by hurting students. The challenge is to maintain a ministry and involvement with a wide variety of students who can bring hurting students into a healthy group.
