Read this especially if you are (a) our mates and long-term supporters, (b) thinking about the future, (c) a student, (d) think Jesus is vaguely interesting.
This is solid gold. Mikey Lynch of Crossroads Pressie, Hobart, is coming on board as campus director of University Fellowship of Christians at Uni of Tasmania. He’s spending the rest of this year dreaming and scheming. It’s parachurch, uni ministry gold — we’ll be following closely!
Forget church planting.
Uni ministry is still the future.
Here’s some of the vital stuff he’s talking about:
- Being a campus mission taskforce (not playing de facto church)
- Building the next generation of Christian leaders with an eye to world mission
- Having an outward focus (not being a club for Christians)
- Building young men and women (not prolonging adolescence)
And looklooklook at their plans.
