As universities & student behaviour significantly changes in some places, CUs need to be open to the fact that its desired outcomes may not necessarily be done/be done best in an integrated, church-style, campus-focussed ministry of small groups, Bible talks & conferences…
But we need to ask how to best achieve these outcomes, even if the model is a bit more fragmented/restructured. These outcomes are:
- Context for broad, inter-church young adults networks.
- Deep, immersive coming of age discipleship/input and worldview/apologetics formation beyond already-resourced churches.
- Recruitment ground/training context for Christian leaders.
- Evangelism/centre for public Christianity.
Also CUs might have to make strategic decisions about priorities, including and which of these are most need to be organised to reach the largest number of students possible.
