Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death”. Today’s college youth arrive at many crossroads. Studies have shown that many Christian college students abandon their faith during their college journey. Their zeal and love for God becomes quickly shadowed by this newfound freedom to explore new avenues of relationships, social outings, time and of course peer pressure all around.
Therefore, more than ever it is the role of the church at large to reach the “forgotten generation”. It is our duty to take our church youth under our care as we continue to strengthen them in sound doctrine while they are away at school. It will be the responsibility of the church to provide a support system for the college student that will include providing transportation in order to continue and encourage church involvement in various ministries/ weekly services that will keep them connected to God while away from their home church.
