I'm posing this question to see if we can get a bit of discussion going -- it doesn't look like this region of The Network as been very active. Just to be fair, I want to be clear that I think some campuses and some campus ministers more naturally lead to one sort of ministry than the other. Both ministry to Christians AND an evangelical posture can be God's calling. But do CRC campus ministers prefer one over the other? Which position dominates? Why? Are we being faithful to God's current calling in what we do? Is there perhaps a third or a fourth and fifth position? Are CRC campus ministers mostly folks who stand in the gap between high school faith and adult faith for Christian students, encouraging them to articulate a coherent world and life view? Or are CRC ministers becoming people who are a sign post for a Christian faith that does not reject intellectual challenges -- and as such engaging nonbelievers on campus to start following Jesus? Have we become so leery of the label "evangelical" that we hesitate to serve as evangelists?
Are CR Campus Ministers mostly ministers to Christians on campus or mostly evangelists on campus?
