Christian College Students posted by John Sorensen on Aug 06, 2018
Do you have a young adult who will be heading off to college this fall? Or are you that young adult looking forward to your college experience?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, president of Evangelism Explosion International for Share Life Today. So I have a warning, the stats are pretty sobering when it comes to college students abandoning their faith in college. According to Summit Ministries 59% of students leave the faith during their college years. Why? Frankly, because they aren’t grounded in their faith. One way we can significantly lower those percentages is to equip our young adults to share the Gospel. Recently, a young lay leader took his 15 – 19 year old students on a short term missions trip. For many, it was their first time of seeing someone pray to receive Christ. He said, “Their excitement was insane!” At EE we believe that when a student learns how to share the Gospel, they’re less likely to walk away from their faith.
