College Ministry Resources
God has blessed us with the opportunity to put out some resources that other college ministry leaders are finding helpful. Here are some links to conference messages, resources and articles. Please contact Paul Worcester with any questions that you may have and feedback on the free version of the ebook, Tips for Starting a College Ministry. Follow Paul on Twitter for more book suggestions and other resources. You can also check out and subscribe to the blog and resource websites Campus Ministry Today & Collegiate Collective, both of which Paul is an editor and writer for.
Tips For Starting A College Ministry
"I believe this is the best information available on beginning or continuing a successful campus ministry. Devour this material, then do it and stand amazed at what God does."
- Max Barnett, Veteran BCM Director, Author and Seminary Professor, State Director of Christian Challenge in Colorado
"This is an invaluable guide, providing practical how-to’s for one of the most difficult tasks in ministry: starting from scratch."
- Rick James Cru Staff and Editor at CruPress.com Author of “A Million Ways to Die” and “Jesus Without Religion”
"I get asked all the time what I would do, if I were starting a college ministry. I have grown college ministries, but never started one. Here is good advice from someone who started a campus ministry with just two students. He has been there and done it.....and done it outside the Bible Belt. This e-book is worth your time!"
- Arliss Dickerson Veteran BCM Director, College Ministry Author and College Ministry Advocate
