September 3, 2015

In our continuing series on Young Life College, this Thursday we’re sharing ideas about large group topics. Last week we talked about tips for getting folks to large group. (And we mentioned that on most campuses, large groups function like Campaigners in our high school ministry. So, once students arrive at large group, what do you discuss?

  • Who is Jesus? 
  • Tough questions:
    • Why does a good God let bad things happen?
    • How to respond to trials and suffering. 
    • Do I need to go to church? 
  • Reading books together and discussing
    • One group recently read “Love Does” by Bob Goff together.
