 For those involved in College/Student ministries

Just thought I'd make some room for those who are currently involved in or have participated in
- Collegiate parachurch ministry (e.g., Campus Crusade)
- Student ministries within your own local church
- Evangelising to teenagers and young-adults
- Being a Christian parent of a child at college or on the way next year

What have been some of the victories and challenges you have faced? I personally have met young people who have either come to faith in Christ on campus, or alternatively and sadly, already had faith but lost it due to what the campus had to offer as far as temptation.

Having been involved in student ministry from the time I got soundly saved up to now (nearly 8 years), one thing I've learned consistently is this: use wisely the time that God gives you. When God sends you a student to either lead to Christ or make a disciple of, you have a very narrow window of opportunity (one semester at least; three years at best) to make sure that you have imparted as much as they can to endure both in their time as a student as well as wherever God may take them.
