EVERY NATION BELIEVES THAT THE NEXT GENERATION IS A STRATEGIC HARVEST FIELD.
First, because of them being a window of openness.
Young people these days are in the stage where they are very easy to be influenced by what they see on tv, internet, magazines and by the people around them. This vulnerability might seem like a weakness to others but we believe that this is a great opportunity to speak to the lives of these young people and introduce Christ to them.
a survey of Christians showed 19 out of 20 people gave their lives to Christ before the age of 21; after 25, only 1 in 10,000 accept Christ and only 1 out of 30,000 after 35.
CAN YOU IMAGINE A GREATER OPPORTUNITY?
Second, they are the future leaders of our society.
The students in the campuses right now won’t stay students forever. Soon they will be the future lawyers, doctors, businessmen and maybe even the mayor of this city. Isn’t it amazing that while they are still students, we can already reach the future leaders of this nation. The culture of the campuses today will be the culture of our society in a few years, so as we reach the students, we already impact the lives of tomorrow’s leaders and consequently the future of our world.
These students are also the doorway to their families.
Having them give their lives to the Lord at an early age, these young people can then be a living testimony to their parents, sibling and other family members of how Jesus Christ shared someone's life. I myself was reached out when I was still a student.
In campus ministry, we believe to win students for Christ, train them for leadership and eventually send them to impact the world!
WE ALL HAVE A PART TO PLAY.
