College Ministry Essentials

Justin Holcomb at the Resurgence reminds us of “6 Essentials of College Ministry” that all Christians should remember for ourselves and the various young people we meet:

  1. Don’t confuse the gospel with religion.
  2. Learn about sexual assault.
  3. Teach students how to read and interpret the Bible for themselves.
  4. Be prepared to comfort students because of divorce and death.
  5. Study apologetics.
  6. Be prepared to counsel students about what they’re really facing.

Having been involved in various types of college ministry for the last seven years (and college itself for four years before that), I can say that I’ve seen all of these . . . and lived most of them.
