If you lead a campus ministry at UW-Madison, you probably can’t remember a more challenging year to reach and serve students. Crises have multiplied, and our pandemic–prescribed isolation has magnified our need for one another. Yet our work continues.
Join us in a learning cohort and community experience to connect with other campus ministry leaders, add to your personal toolkit, and gain traction in building the next generation of student leaders. We have set this cohort up for members to make meaningful, impactful connections and discover ways to work alongside one another for God’s good purposes in our community and campus.
We are grateful for the generous support of the Madison Christian Giving Fund to launch this learning cohort.
We will focus on three areas and seek to (1) glean fresh ministry approaches for emerging adults, (2) cultivate our own spiritual life, and (3) explore possibilities for racial reconciliation employing a Christian worldview. Three books will guide our discussions:
by Tim Elmore (Poet Gardener, 2019)
by Jemar Tisby (Zondervan, 2021)
by Rich Villodas (WaterBrook, 2020)
Who is this Cohort for?
This learning cohort is for professional campus ministry staff, pastors, lay leaders, and volunteers who are working to serve the next generation of emerging adults (ages 18-25). Participants will receive free books (outlined above) for the program and a stipend of $120 for the semester. All accepted participants are required to attend all meetings to receive the full stipend.
