If you’re campus is anything like ours, then there is no shortage of events on campus during the first weeks of the semester. While it seems strange to add to the chaos of offerings, to not offer events in those first weeks would be organizational suicide. So how do you know what to do? How […]
Question: how many live events (talk shows, concerts, etc) have you seen that follow this format? Ice Breaker Skit/Announcements 3 Songs Talk Maybe one more song/Pray I’m guessing none of them. I’m also guessing that these elements look very familiar to you. For as long as I’ve been around collegiate ministry (this will be my […]
“Is your ministry geared more toward Christians or non-Christians?” If I drank a Red Bull every time I was asked this question, I’d be more sleepless than a first-semester freshman during orientation. The question exposes the prevailing assumption among many Christians that believers and non-believers are fundamentally different and have different needs. But 14 years […]
For me and my campus ministries colleagues, the summer of 2013 has been an unusual one with time-intensive administrative reviews, reports, and budget prioritization spreadsheets. So, while there are very few students around, it has been less of a change of pace than we typically experience. For that reason, I have been especially excited about […]
A collegiate ministry is only as strong as its weakest link. I think Jesus got it right. He picked some pretty strong links. The leadership team of any collegiate ministry must function as a well-oiled machine if the ministry is going to achieve maximum impact on their campus for Christ. I love my leadership team. […]
Here you go! All in one location… A wide-array of resources for our critical work with students. BOOKS College Ministry: The Fuel and The Flame: 10 Keys to Ignite Your College Campus for Jesus Christ, by Steve Shadrach Shaping Their Future, by Guy Chimieleski God on Campus: Social Causes & Global Effects, by Trent Sheppard […]
People are watching. And we know that the Church (which our ministries ultimately fall within the framework of) is in the midst of a publicity nightmare within North America. We live and serve within an increasingly post-Christian nation — and I think a lot of it has to do with the ways we as Christians […]
When’s the last time you asked God for a target? For His target? When’s the last time you asked God who He wanted you to spend your time and efforts pursuing? If you’re anything like me, you might tend to operate on autopilot when it comes to questions like this. As people serving the campus […]
What do you want your students reading this year? Beyond their textbooks (which I hope you encourage), what are the faith-forming, faith-informing, faith-transforming books that you want to point your students towards in the year ahead? I think they will still naturally find their way to more popular books like: Love Does, from Bob Goff […]
Why do you lead? What does leadership mean to you?
Faith ON Campus is excited to announce the next Blogathon:
Back to School | August 6-8, 2013!
I know it probably feels like the summer just started — but the reality is that the new school year is just around the corner — so with that in mind, it’s time to make plans and preparations for this upcoming opportunity to come together for some collective thinking and sharing about how to make the most of this critical time of the year!
That’s what the Back to School Blogathon is all about!
I confess, I just ordered a Monsters University t-shirt.
As a College Minister, I was especially excited when I heard Pixar and Disney was releasing a sequel (or prequel more like) to Monster’s, Inc. As I predicted, the movie really resonated with me.
I thought about writing a review of Monsters University, but after reading the excellent review on…
