As the lead pastor for the campus church I have utilized two words to help explain the target groups for our ministry. Perhaps you will find this helpful if you are in college ministry yourself, or if you are just interested in what we are attempting to do in our ministry at the University of Louisville.
Our first target group is “wander-ers”. I have used this term to refer to students who believe the gospel, but for multiple reasons have wandered away from a commitment to a church while in college.
The second group is “wonder-ers”. I use this term to describe students who have emotional, social or intellectual barriers to the gospel. These students are open to exploring different explanations of reality.
Please join us in praying for both wander-ers and wonder-ers who make UofL their college home. Pray that these students will find in Christ living truth and loving community.
