We are pairing college students with FBBC families who are willing to love and disciple college-aged students. This will give our students a greater sense of belonging to our church through simple interactions such as Sunday lunches, sending them text messages, or occasionally offering your home as a quiet place to study or do laundry.
How much do I have to do? How much will this cost me?
Connection is key. Keeping in contact with the student and doing something with them every once in a while lets them know that someone loves them and they are a vital part of our church and community.
Here are some ideas that students love…
Take them out to lunch every once in a while.
Invite them over to cook a meal together.
Go to a sporting event (even your child’s.)
Send them text messages.
Send them mail and care packages during finals week.
Invite them to help you in your ministries.
Offer your home as a quiet place for homework or laundry.
Take them fishing or golfing.
Invite them on a family outing.
Invite them over to watch a movie or play games.
We ask that there is some kind of interaction with your students at least twice a month.
We are going to pair each family with at least 2 students. This will help in everyone feeling comfortable from the beginning. You will have the option on the sign up form to request between 2 and 4 students.
This is a commitment for the whole school year – August to May. (Although, we are fairly confident that you’ll want to continue the relationship long after the school year ends)
We will do regular follow-up with both families and students to check in and make sure everything is going great.
