It's no secret that trying to survive your college career as a Christian is strenuous. There is a battle during this time for the hearts and minds of all students.Whether the enemy is trying to convince you that God does not exist through a secular culture on campus...or tempting you to dive in to the party and hookup scene, the war is raging. And unfortunately the sad statistic is 80% of believers entering college walk away from Jesus. What's equally tragic are all those non-believers who never give Christ a chance because of this spiritual conflict.There is hope, however! Our Jesus is alive and well. He has not fallen asleep, he wants to help you boom through your college career in relationship with him, as well as invite others on the journey.Here is a basic list of three tips to help you boom through college!1 - Make a proactive difference on your campus. Unlike most of the population, choose not merely to coast by. Try every day to represent Jesus well, excel in your classes and love your classmates. Look for ways to bless with encouragements. And PRAY. You have no idea the supernatural ripple effects your prayers can make at your school.2 - Change the world. Your college career is a unique time that will never be repeated. Although you may feel like the pressure of exams and studies are overwhelming, it will just get busier after you graduate. So make the most of your time, especially your summers. Consider changing the world by going on a summer mission! Cru has missions in almost every country, but also here in the USA - whether beachside or in the inner city. God can use your free summers to help fulfill the Great Commission and change the world.3 - You are not alone. Time and again, we hear students admit "I never knew there was a Christian community at my school!" And this is the truth. Cru has a gospel-centered, student-lead community on over 23 campuses in NJ. You name a campus and we are likely there. By God's grace we will not stop! And by plugging yourself into one of these communities, you can ensure growth in Christ!We're rooting for you! Praying for you! If this is your first time hearing about the college ministry of Cru, please check out the video below of our students sharing a bit of the vision behind what we do.
