While NAMB is preparing for the potential addition of the collegiate ministry assignment, Lifeway will continue to provide resources for the benefit of college students, fulfilling its own collegiate ministry assignment, said Ben Mandrell, Lifeway president and CEO.
“We’re thankful to see NAMB step into the collegiate ministry space,” Mandrell said. “As an entity that receives Cooperative Program funding, paired with their commitment to evangelism, NAMB is uniquely positioned to make intentional efforts in reaching college students with the gospel and mobilizing students to reach their peers.
“Adding this assignment to NAMB doesn’t change our commitment to serving local churches in their ministries to college students. Lifeway will continue to fulfill our assignment by providing resources such as Sunday School curriculum and short-term Bible studies that help disciple young adults and deepen their walk with Jesus Christ. This new ministry assignment allows both entities to focus on what we do best.”
