Perhaps you’ve wondered why there’s been a 32 day gap between our last blog post and today. Granted the Holidays played into it, but the real reason for the silence is all the work going into the 2.0 version of CollegeMinistry.com. We are just a few short hours away from launching the brand new site! This collaborative project has been in the works for months now and the anticipation we feel in palpable. From a fresh mission and vision, to countless unique features the new site is sure to engage a wide variety of college ministry leaders. Seeing that we are so close to the launch I won’t spoil it by telling you everything about site. However I can’t resist giving you a little preview.
First, the new mission and vision is simple and engaging.
Our Mission: To serve and strengthen existing college ministries and those that lead them.
Our Vision: To start hundreds of new college ministries in locations where they’re desperately needed. Our desire is that CollegeMinistry.com is less of a site you visit and more of movement you fully buy into.
Second, the leadership is shared, open and collaborative. There are 9 “Official Contributors” who love learning alongside fellow college ministry leaders like you. Moreover CollegeMinistry.com invites everyone to lead by sharing what they’ve learned and created. Collaboration, co-creating and connecting are at the heart of everything we aim to do.
Third, the new features provide an online environment unlike any presently available for college ministry leaders. For far too long college ministry has played second fiddle to Jr. High and High School. The desire for strong churched and campus based college ministries is reflected in how much time, energy and thought has been put into the new site. Here are just a few of the features you’ll be able to enjoy.
-The first ever job bank and resrouce store designated exclusively for college ministry.
-A monthly subscription that gives you access to an online collaborator’s form, resource bank that’s updated weekly and a College Ministry Tool Kit that’s sent to your doorstep at the start of each semester.
-Subscribers also enjoy free tickets to an annual CM training event held in Southern California, personal coaching from an Official Contributor and entry into an amazing monthly giveaway that’s sure to make you smile
Ok I’ve said way too much. Before your head hits the pillow tonight the new site will launch. The next time you type www.collegeministry.com into your address bar you’re in for a totally new experience.
We feel so honored and excited to be partner with you to reach and disciple the Millennial Generation.
