Just as we were starting our college-age ministry a few months ago, I had a pastor ask me why we had chosen Tuesday night. “Why not Friday night,” he asked, “because that’s the night they always hang out anyway?”
Maybe that explains why churches aren’t doing well with post-grad ministries after students leave the youth ministry. One ministry while I was in college originally met on Friday nights, but moved their meetings because students always had something going on Friday night, and they had a progressively lower attendance.
When will they get it?
