Overview

College students. They’re young, smart, strong. They like to search, to analyze, to try new things. They are preparing for their life’s work.

What better setting to reach people for Christ than college or university? Yet the local church often misses out on opportunities for campus ministry.

William J. Senn III traces the history of campus work from Paul’s lessons at the school of Tyrannus to the present day, highlighting college groups and events such as the St. Andrews Seven and the Haystack Revival. He presents the climate and challenges of modern secular campuses and overviews several campus ministry models. After pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of each, he offers practical advice to help any church begin a fruitful campus ministry. Rooted in years of personal experience, Senn’s proposed model provides a solid framework and a wealth of useful ideas for Taking the Cross of Christ to the Campus.
