Day 36

Posted: July 7, 2012 in Bike Ride Across America 2012

Today was another “rest” day with family in Wisconsin.  So for tonight’s post I’ve decided to highlight the StudentConnect service that Lutheran Campus Mission Association provides.

One of the greatest challenges for campus ministry workers is connecting with new college students.  In days gone by, most universities provided local ministries with the names and addresses of students who identified themselves as belonging to a particular denomination.  Campus ministries were then able to invite incoming students to welcome events before they arrived.  Today connecting students with campus ministries is much more difficult.

Lutheran Campus Mission Association’s StudentConnect service to puts a student in direct contact with a campus ministry worker in the student’s college town.  Any pastor, youth worker, parent, student or friend can complete the StudentConnect online form.  The student’s contact information will be shared with the local campus ministry worker—who will then get in touch, explain how the student can become involved, and invite him or her to visit and learn more.
