A thought about college students for my friends
who serve as ministers to congregations:


As your college students come home for the holidays, please take some time to speak to them personally about their lives. They are not the same young person you celebrated at their graduation and sent off to college. 

  • They have had life experiences they have probably not processed with anyone, and particularly not with a person that would listen and offer grace.
  • They are at the crossroads of choices that everyone wants to weigh in on. Sometimes they just need a sounding board and a listening ear.
  • If they show up at church at all, they usually don’t know where they fit in and experience awkwardness and a sense of displacement.
  • Many of our students went away thinking they knew exactly who they were and what they wanted, and were disappointed to find they were one of many bright and talented young adults and it has shaken their self-esteem.
  • And heaven knows they need someone to help them process the global events of the past few months

So Please:

Take the time to seek them out.

Include them in your welcome

Have an informal ”get together”

Ask them to participate in worship

Tell them that they were missed and that they have a place in Christ’s family and in their church specifically.


And FinallyBe looking for that student who might make a good intern for your church this summer.  Now is the time for both of you to be thinking about that possibility.


Investment and engagement in the life of a young adult is never a waste of your time and energy.

A “Partnering Church” with CBFNC Collegiate Ministry

A Partnering Church is a congregation that has expressed a desire to partner and invest in CBFNC collegiate ministry.  A church may offer support in a variety of ways. They may provide meals, care packages, prayer or monetary support to a specific school or to CBFNC collegiate ministry in general.

If your church would like to be a Partnering Church with CBFNC collegiate ministry, please contact Wanda Kidd at and she will gladly list your church on the CBFNC Collegiate Ministry Web page. Together we can grow the CBFNC Collegiate Ministry network.
