Renewing Campus Movements
College ministry in urban centers has potential for far reaching cultural impact. But high costs, insufficient ministry models, and low coordination across campus movements undermine our ability to renew the campus.
The Campus Movements track will clarify what a gospel movement in urban campuses could look like, connect like minded practitioners in action learning around campus renewal, and address the barriers to cultural impact.
This Track is for:
- Collegiate Ministry Directors and Practitioners in cities who share vision for a Gospel shaped movement transforming the university and the culture.
- Identify opportunities for campus ministries to contribute to the renewal of the city through the creation of vibrant urban ministries
Develop on-going working groups to address those issues which arise from, and build on, future Movement Days.Create a network of urban campus ministry practitioners and leaders which will engage in conversation both at and after Movement Day.
- the key barriers which prevent campus ministries (whether church-based or parachurch) from contributing fully to the renewal of the city and
- the next steps necessary to eliminate those barriers.
