Last year I had the chance to meet a guy named Benson Hines. He took a year to travel to nearly 200 college campuses to see what God was up to, and one of his stops was Stanford University. We met and talked shop for a while and have stayed in touch via Facebook since then.
Benson has just written a free book called Reaching The Campus Tribes
about his observations. His central thesis: college ministry is a whole lot more like foreign missions than it is like youth ministry
It’s going to be fully available next Monday at http://reachingthecampustribes.com/
. For now, there’s a prerelease version you can download (pdf link, 4.2 MB).
Benson also has a blog: Exploring College Ministry. Check it out.
