Agenda: Campus Ministry and T4T

I am excited about this week. I will be having two meetings with area ministers to discuss ministry and missions.

My first meeting is in the morning. I will be drinking coffee with a young man who has recently joined the staff of an area campus ministry. This ministry ministers to students enrolled at Texas A&M University (TAMU) in College Station, Texas. TAMU is the 7th largest university in the nation with the 17th largest international student enrollment in the country. This young man will have the responsibility of leading his campus ministry’s evangelistic outreach to the “nations” of the world who are pursuing their academic studies at A&M. We will be discussing international student ministry in general and his ministry and its start-up, in particular.

On Wednesday morning I will meet with two staff members from a fairly new church in our community. One of the folks is the church’s lead pastor. The other is a staff minister whose responsibilitie’s include ministry to international students. While I am sure we will discuss ministry to international students, the main purpose for our getting together is to discuss a “training” resource material called T4T – Training for Trainers.

T4T is basically a discipleship material that can be used to disciple new followers of Christ. It is much like the six-session discipleship material you may have gone through at your local church when you first became a Christian. But, T4T is much more than a knowledge-based discipleship material. T4T is designed to instill within the heart and life of new believers a vision for and commitment to evangelism, the making of reproducing disciples of Christ, and the starting of new (simple) churches that start new churches. The bottom-line objective of T4T is, therefore, the expansion of the Kingdom of God through church planting movements.

I trust that the two church staff ministers and I will not only discuss the T4T material, but ways that we can work together to implement the material and its church planting principles as we seek to reach Texas A&M University and our community for Christ.

I would ask you to pray these I have mentioned in this post and me as we meet and pray together this week. Please pray that we will know how we might best work together to reach Bryan-College Station, Texas for Christ.


T4T – Training for Trainers was developed by a church planter in East Asia who was confronted with the challenge of how to reach an unengaged mega-city for Christ. This material is now being used around the world by many different churches and denominations as they seek to fulfill the Great Commission is our life-time.
