60,000 college students

How do we reach 60,000 college students in Denton with the gospel? This was the question 16 local DBA pastors discussed in a meeting with area collegiate ministry leaders.

Morgan Malone, DBA Executive Dir., Stephanie Gates, UNT BSM Dir., Mika Sumpter, TWU BSM Dir., Chase Jacobs, UNT BSM Associate Dir. and Austin Wadlow, College Pastor at FBC, Denton, have been meeting since October 2016 developing a plan to help local churches begin identifying next steps churches could take to better engage college students. This group then met with pastors from ten churches, all within a three-mile radius to one of the college campuses, to discuss collegiate ministry in Denton. They discussed ways to partner together to engage these 60,000 college students in Denton.

The hope is to cast vision and to receive input from local pastors as work continues to develop a Collegiate Ministry Involvement Plan for our local churches. In the coming months local churches will be contacted to identify their interest and involvement with collegiate ministry in Denton. Please begin praying now for this team and for the churches that will invest in a collegiate ministry.

The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.   – Luke 10:2
