Here is a sampling of questions to discuss with the young adults in your church as they transition from high school to college. We simply must, must, must care pastorally for our young people when they disappear from weekly involvement in church and go off to college. Their absence from home does not break the commitment each church member makes to help care for one another. This is not the sole arena of the youth pastor. As strange as youth culture may seem, students do respond many times to even the smallest interaction. They have not moved to another planet, only to a new phase in their lives.
Given that they are away at school, you must seize opportunities to talk with them. Don't delay. Share your Christian love today.
