College students–they may not be able to give money, but they can give you their time. 

In Episode 310 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Todd continue their mini series where they answer questions submitted via office hours, a perk of being a Plus Member. On this episode, they specifically discuss opportunities churches have to develop college students and raise up leaders. Here’s today’s question: 

Should speaking to college students or ministries be a strategy to developing a core team? 

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • What can happen when you give college students a chance to lead. 
  • Why churches should appreciate, value, and elevate college students.

  • “If you’re launching a new church you better have a pretty compelling vision about what you’re going to be doing there, and in that community. Otherwise, it’ll be hard to connect with the average adult, let alone college students.”–@ToddAdkins
  • “If you help college and students see the fruit of their labor or what your ministry is doing, they become extremely committed and can be a valuable member of your launch team.”–@ToddAdkins
  • “College students may not have money or be able to tithe much, but they have time.”@danielsangi
