If you're involved in a church where this generation gap is occurring, or if you're part of a church that's just beginning to explore or launch a college ministry, you'll find useful tools and valuable insights in College Ministry 101. You'll learn how to bridge this generation gap by:
- recognizing the church's failure in assimilating teenagers after high school, and developing practical ways to correct that failure.
- understanding the specific needs of college-age people as they figure out who they are--specifically as they seek meaning and truth in their lives.
- learning basic principles on how to effetively minister to 18-25 year olds on a day-to-day basis.
- teaching others to minister effectively to college-age people.
