For many churches there is a generation gap where a good number of 18-25 year olds are missing. But there are practical ways to solve this problem, and an effective college-age ministry is a vital part of that solution. There are many spiritual battles fought during the college years, and the church must be there to help. If you are involved in a church where this generation gap is occurring, or if you are a part of a church that is just beginning to explore or launch a college ministry, you'll find useful tools and valuable insights in College Ministry 101.
18-25-year-olds are trying to find their place in society while living through an array of experiences that force them to reevaluate beliefs and assumptions they were raised with, which leads many students to disconnect from the church after high school. College Ministry 101 will help church leaders understand the colleg-age-stage in order to better minister to their needs. This book will provide leaders with practical mniistry philosophies about how to effectively minister to college students through mentor relationships, what students need in their day-to-day lives, how to work with volunteers in college ministry, and how to turn college-age students into genuine disciples.
