Why Campus Ministry? :: PC Walker

I remember loneliness: the sense of being the only one who questioned the faith he had always had [if he had it all].

I remember faith: determining whether I really believed all my youth pastor, parents, and grandparents had always said was true…just cuz’

I remember pressure: tangible tension between not knowing what was next and the outside demand for me to decide on…something.

I remember being misunderstood: the feeling of being a select example of a demographic others would rather generalize than infer.

I remember isolation: almost giving up like everyone else on the faith and church I had always known because I never had a sense of connection.

I remember mentors: the few who were constants for me during such a vagrant time

I remember calling: the dedication to never forget all these things I remember

*Today’s post, by PC Walker, is part of a blog series titled “Why Campus Ministry?“. Why do we give our lives to this profession, this people group, this thing called Campus Ministry? Why do we do what we do? What drives us? What keeps us going? Why college students? Why the University campus? Here’s the catch…each post must be 200 words or less.
