I want some college students to start writing on our team! Could it be you?

I work with College students and so do many of our writers, so obviously I am passionate about raising them up and seeing them lead in dynamic and world changing ways. A huge reason I started this blog was to empower college students.

I thought to myself, “What kind of online space would I have loved in college as a young apostolic evangelist?”

The answer was a daily post and community of inspiring leaders that were writing to fire me up. People that were living into the APE calling and understood there was something stirring deep inside to catalyze movements and ministry beyond the current context and for sure beyond the walls of the church.

I would have absolutely loved reading these posts in college and would have loved the opportunity to interact with the different writers here as well.

But What I Would Have Loved More?

WRITEAPE1

I would have loved the opportunity to write with a team of people like this! In college I was always trying to do different things for God. I was taking risks, starting new ministries and just trying to be bold. I was always looking for spaces to grow and to be around others that I looked up to.

So I want to extend that opportunity to some of you!

An opportunity that I would have loved so much.

A College Team of Writers

I want desperately to see a college team of writers emerge on this blog. Students that identify the APE calling inside of them and want to work their thoughts out. Students that also want to influence others with their stories, ministry and new ideas.

I want the church in all its shapes and sizes to start looking at college students as leaders and actually learn something from you guys. If you are given the space to write out your ideas and stories, I think you may catch some people’s attention.

I want to give you your shot before you have your degree and you are all too QUALIFIED! Because you know the only people who get to say anything anymore are the “qualified” ones.

Here is a shot, I hope you take it.

Many time college students feel left out in the church. Often times you are put last and are an after thought when it comes to leadership and what you can do.

But Jesus changed the world with college aged men and women!

This is just one space, and just one opportunity, but I want to extend an offer to you college students to join this APE writing team and make a difference.
