Written by college ministry expert, Chuck Bomar, College Ministry From Scratch provides simple tips and practical ideas for anyone looking to start something for college-age people in their congregation. Keeping in mind that a youth worker or volunteer launching a college ministry already leads a busy life, this book is easy to digest and offers insights on everything from leading overseas mission trips or winter retreats to leading a small group or Sunday school class. This handy resource addresses the simple, but often intimidating task of initiating meetings with students, and even offers a list of questions they can ask when having coffee with a student. Organized by topic, its an easy book for leaders to jump in and out of, as they need it, and is sure to help any size church begin to meet the needs of the college-age people in their congregation.
