|Did you know that the church loses 70-80% of its ACTIVE youth each year after they leave for college?* Did you know that two-thirds of the students who leave the church INTEND to stay connected, but fail to do so?*
You can help us to stay connected to our Methodist college students who are unintentionally falling away from the church by sharing their contact information with us!
All pastors, youth directors, parents and friends of youth in our conference can report the names and contact information of college bound Methodist youth online at www.txcumc.org/campusministryreporting.
Providing this information enables campus ministers and UM pastors in their area to follow-up with them and invite them to their worship services, Bible studies, mission trips, and fellowship activities.
If you have trouble with the on-line form, you can email the contact information to Dan Conway, Director of Youth/Young Adult Ministries, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since college classes are beginning over the coming weeks, please send in the information right away, even if it is not complete. Many times a simple invitation makes all the difference!
