I entered my college, 1200 miles away from home, naive about finding Christian fellowship. I felt relief flood my heart as I saw a big banner on the activities night festival displaying, “I am the way, the truth, and the life – Jesus.” That campus group played a huge role in answering my questions and helping me grow.
How can we help our children find group? I just ran across Campus Crusade’s (Cru as it is now called) geographical index. I thought it might be helpful to others. It is not that easy to find. The link is here.
In addition, have you thought with them about where they will go to church? It might be good to settle on two or three choices before the year starts. One wise father I know has gone up to the university, met a campus minister, and gone to a church with his son. He believes (and I agree!) that fellowship is that important.
Let’s pray and shepherd our children through this transition.
