There's a Community College in My Town: What Do I Do Now?
Geier, Mary Alice
This is a handbook for churchmen who are concerned about community colleges. The information presented covers many aspects of campus ministry at community colleges, factual material about community colleges, and methods of becoming acquainted with the local community college. How to establish a campus ministry, and how this campus ministry should relate to phases of campus life, such as community services, counseling and health services, student activities, and the instructional area are discussed. Other information refers to emphasizing ministry to the faculty, policy-making, and the role of the churchman as interpreter. Some assumptions regarding potential church-college relationships are: (1) community colleges and churchmen have in common the commitment to community services; (2) community colleges will be more receptive to ecumenical than parochial approaches; (3) religious clubs and programs seem no longer practical or appropriate; (4) the church and community college can contribute to and enhance each other's programs; and (5) the church will have to take the initiative in this effort.
