"College Ministry Basics #5 & #6

5. Students must feel it is THEIR ministry to invest significantly of their time and energy in the ministry.

Do they feel what they say and do matters? Have they bought in or are they reluctantly just going along with you? The more students own it, the more they will invite their friends. You are still the captain of the ship, but a captain without a crew is in trouble.

6. Students must feel accepted and cared about individually in order to continue to attend.

A campus ministry can spend a pile of money on programs and enlistment, but if students develop no significant relationships, they likely will not continue their involvement. We must do all we can to develop small caring groups....both organized and informal.
