9 Reasons Churches Must Reach College Students

7. They need—and deeply want—mentors. Give them just a few minutes, and they’ll flock to you. They want cross-generational relationships that help them navigate life. The local church wins when Christian mentors and mentees connect.

8. They’re interested in church planting. If your church is committed to reproducing churches, get some college students involved. They’re ready.

9. They are the leaders of today and tomorrow. I know that sentence sounds cliché, but it’s right. We have an opportunity to influence their lives today for the sake of the gospel tomorrow. Don’t miss it!

Take some time today to learn about college and university students near your church. Reach out to them. If you’re not within driving distance of a campus, spend intentional time in prayer for those leaders who are.
