College Ministry Links

There were two great posts about college ministry today that I wanted to point out to you:

  1. 6 Essentials of College Ministry from The Resurgence – this is some great practical wisdom for particular issues we face on college campuses.
  2. College Ministry Poles: Cooperation vs. Independence by Benson Hines – an excellent post on interaction with other campus ministries, and the variety of views between two ends of a spectrum.

For the record, I agree with all 6 elements posted at The Resurgence, and have personally faced each situation to which they speak.  With respect to Benson’s post, I fall on the full collaboration of ministries (with a few caveats…primarily ministry methodology and gospel centrality).

I’d love to hear your thoughts on either post!

Although I was raised in the church and had a knowledge of God, I didn’t embrace Jesus until I heard gospel preached and lived out by some Young Life leaders. God has proven faithful and good to me since that day, even in great suffering and loss. I have learned to treasure Romans 8:28 as a wellspring of hope and truth.

God has blessed me with an amazing wife (Olivia), three sons (Micah, Hudson and Owen) and a daughter (Emmaline). Growing up in the northwest, the thought never crossed my mind that I would have four children who are native Texans. Despite landing in the south, I still watch Notre Dame games with my children every Saturday in hopes they will land at my alma mater.

(It’s always exciting when a really well-read blog highlights college ministry!) Even if you don’t agree with these as THE top 6, his unique additions to our quivers are well worth reading in “6 Essentials of College Ministry.” (Hat tip: Steve Lutz.) […]
