The University dominates the world

0

The university is a dominating institution in our culture and has immense influence over governance, school systems and the church. I think campus ministry is of great importance because there should never be any place that is left to the kingdom of disbelief and disdain against God’s kingdom. Since we’re the light of the world, we should be in every campus in the world. For a church to ignore a center of population with its unique needs is unconscionable. Brady Bobbinkformer Campus DirectorWestern Washington University

The university dominates the world

0

The great western institution, the university, dominates the world today more than any other institution. more than the church, more than the government, more than all other institutions… the influence is so pervasive and total that whatever problem afflicts them, it is bound to have far-reaching repercussions throughout the entire fabric of Western civilization. Charles Malik, former president of the General Assembly of the United Nations

Universities are Primary Tributaries

0

The church should create an on-campus presence—an extension of the church to the campus. We have a responsibility . . .  . Like it or not, the universities are primary tributaries to cultural development or demise in terms of leadership. They are a wellspring, for better or worse, of where the culture’s headed. If we ignore the university, we’re ignoring our culture. Brady Bobbink, former Campus Minister, Western Washington University

College students awaiting an invitation

0

College students are the most moldable, malleable, and movemental demographic today, and that students (compelled by the gospel) are awaiting an invitation and pathway to leverage their lives for the expansion of God’s Kingdom.

God and Youth

0

God also has a special interest in the youth.Young people have imagination.Youth capture vision quickly.And they dare to believe when they are faced with the impossible. Exploding population has thrust young people into importance as never before.Over half the world is young.They are looking for something to believe in.Something to live for, something if need be to die for. Harold S. Slusher The Origin of the Universe, San Diego, Institute of Creation Research, (ICR) 1978, quoted in Rice Brooks’, Change the Campus, Change the World

Sacred Spaces

0

University communities of faith find themselves in dorms, student centers, classrooms, coffee bistros, pubs, parks, students’ off-campus apartments, auditoriums and eateries. These communities of faith on and off campus create sacred spaces where worship, prayer, fellowship, discipleship and mission are experienced. This type of community represents an ecclesiology that is freed from an institutional box, in order to inform and empower the missiological task – which creates sacred space and fluid structure for the multiple contexts in which communities of faith find themselves.  Dr. Anita KoeshallAG world missionary and Associate Professor of Intercultural Studies at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary/Evangel University

The Meaning of It All

0

University undergraduates have both the freedom and the bandwidth required to consider abandoning one comprehensive set of beliefs about life and adopting a whole new one. Later in life their worldview “settles in” through vocational choices and longer-term friendships and new family ties. This makes it far harder to get anything like the focused attention and energy necessary to examine the foundations of one’s entire life. The university, then, is in many ways uniquely suited for evangelism. There’s no other place in our culture that affords listeners the space and freedom, time, and posture to talk about the Meaning of It All. Tim Keller

A Premier Place for God

0

The college campuses of the world have historically been a premier place for God to fashion for Himself laborers for the nations. The college campus is a place where young people can gather into tightly-knit communities, driven by a common purpose and pursuing a common goal. It is a place where the Lord of the Harvest has the opportunity to teach His young servants the primary lessons of faith, faithfulness, discipleship, courage, humility, evangelism, brokenness, servant-heartedness, and leadership. It is where our secret lives in God can become solid and deeply rooted. The community also provides an atmosphere where cultivating cross-cultural vision for the nations, growing in personal spiritual vitality, maturing a passion and effectiveness in evangelism, and leading and influencing others with a vision for reaching the world, are potentially experienced. When these and other disciplines are intentionally cultivated in a community setting during college, upon graduation, a multitude of prepared laborers can be released into the global harvest. These spiritually vital student mission initiatives on campuses, once networked to each other, are the widespread student missions movement necessary to accomplish the Great Commission in our lifetime. Ryan Shaw, Waking the Giant, The Resurgence Student Missions Movement

Centers for Ideas

0

Universities are centers for ideas and actions . . . . The climate of the university provides a unique environment for inquiry and, at its best, inspires idealism that changes the world. Student leadership has introduced reforms, led to powerful freedom movements and brought down kings and rulers . . . . What is often unknown and unsung is the role university students and professors have played in Christian witness and in preservation of truth over the centuries. Keith and Gladys Hunt, For Christ and the University

No Place in the World

“There’s no place in the world like the university campus. It’s a colorful conglomeration of highly educated individuals, young formidable minds, and a rich diversity in backgrounds, ethnicities, religious beliefs, priorities and more.  It is thick with potential . . . students are encountering new people, new places, and new experiences . . .all of which have the potential to shape them and mold them during this highly formative season.” Guy Chmieleski, Faith on Campus
