#TUESDAYTIP: Churches — stay in touch with your college students


As a campus minister, Hugh Griffith, director of the Wesley Foundation at Mississippi State University encourages churches to stay in touch with their students at college. 

“Hopefully the students will go to church when they are back home,” Griffith said. “A church could also reach out their students while they’re away.”

Griffith said when he was a student at Mississippi State, the associate pastor from his home church (located five hours away) came all the way to Starkville to take him and others from his home church out to dinner and to visit. 

“That’s a great move for a church!” Griffith said.
