College Ministry Basics # 3 & # 4

3. Students have to get their Felt Needs met to continue to come.

You may have a great vision of what God has called you to do...send mission teams to China, Haiti, etc. But, if students do not feel you are meeting some of their immediate needs, then forget it. Are you meeting their needs? Are you speaking to the issues with which they are wrestling now? Again, it involves listening, looking and learning about your campus.

4. What the campus as a whole thinks of your ministry will affect the response to your ministry.

In other words, what do you look like to the campus as a whole? What would the average student on your campus say about your ministry? What the campus thinks about your ministry may not be your fault, but you will benefit or suffer from it. What the administration thinks about your ministry will affect your opportunities and how much they are willing to work with you.....and what doors they open and CLOSE to you.
