Helps & Hospitality

  • Baking/Cooking- retreats, outreaches, training events or “adopt” a weekly small group on campus.
  •  Hosting holiday meals or other special events for students;  a cabin for a men’s  or women’s retreat weekend, or how about an inviting space for a game/movie night, backyard bonfire, grill out, or day at the lake!  Experiencing a “home-away-from-home” ministers very deeply to students.
  • Prayer — lunch breaks, prayer walks, virtually or on your own. Prayer is the foundation for making an eternal impact on campus
