Caring for Campus Ministries

by | Mar 18, 2020 | Higher Education and Campus Ministry

  • Pray for students
  • Remember students from colleges all over the country who have returned home to their communities (many of my students have come back to Phoenix)
  • Support the cost of ZOOM
  • Order food or other encouraging things to be sent to students apartments
  • Support the cost of gardening as a way to get out in a non-interactive way (it is a goal for the few students here to restore the irrigation system and have the garden ready for next semester – something to focus on)
  • Continue to bring food so it can be packaged in “to-go” containers
  • Donate funds to help students with rent or utility bills as some will have their income impacted
  • Reach out to students you know, or, send cards to campus ministries to be distributed to students who are feeling isolated and alone
  • Donate toilet paper, kleenex, hand sanitizer, gift cards, basic food items

As with so many ministries in the Conference, the apportionment rate of the collection has affected the campus ministry budgets. Please remember our campus ministries when thinking about your donations. They do such important Kingdom work, and while as people say the ‘children’ are our future, WE are the present. Please help our campus ministries not only succeed but flourish. Thank you!
