A thought about college students from CBFNC Collegiate Engagement Coordinator, Dr. Wanda Kidd:
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.
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 Finally: Be 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.
- from Wanda Kidd, CBFNC Collegiate Engagement Coordinator
Every church is a college church - whether you have students who have gone to college or if you have students within driving range of your church. CBFNC wants to provide events you can invite your college students to.
