Notable Points:

  • The prayer of students wanting to reach their peers is powerful. How are you encouraging your students to pray for their friends who don’t know Christ?
  • It started with a 21 day challenge to read through the Book of John, and has led to multiple salvations and ongoing disciple-making relationships of students to other students. What methods are your students empowered to use to share the Gospel with their friends?
  • The Gospel is best shared and well received in the context of close community and deep relationship – like an athletic team. What affinity groups are students in your ministry already involved in?
  • Advice to collegiate leaders trying to reach athletes: “Be invested, and let them [athletes] know that you really care. Proximity, quantity, and quality time are key.”
