Christian Unions are missional communities on campus led by students. Students are best placed to reach other students for Christ, as they have maximum integrity with university authorities, maximum creativity and maximum opportunities for evangelism. I know this is all true becuase it is written on the UCCF website.
CU students are the best placed, but are they the most able? Are 19-year olds really the most confident and competent to declare and demonstrate the Gospel? Can they communicate? Can they answer the difficult questions that they’ll inevitably face?
What might help the best placed become the most able? Christian Persuader Student Groups exist to do exactly that.
