Book Title: College Ministry in a Post-Christian Culture
Publisher: The House Studio

At last! A book that interprets the challenges of campus ministry through a distinctly missional lens. This is an intensely practical and theologically substantial orientation on what it means to do college ministry.
Alan Hirsch, Author of The Forgotten Ways, Untamed, and Right Here, Right Now
The future of the world is being decided right now on college campuses. Anyone interested in being the sent ones to the non-church culture will benefit from reading this book.
Reggie McNeal, Author of Missional Renaissance and The Present Future
This fascinating book should be considered essential reading for anyone involved in this particular mission field. This is game-changing stuff.
Byron Borger, Hearts & Minds Books
This book is a wake-up call for the campus ministries and churches that are failing miserably to engage emerging adults.
Mark Holcomb, University Chaplain, Olivet Nazarene University
As someone who has ministered to university students in the American South for fifteen years, I cannot thank Steve enough for this book. This is a rare work of theological depth, sociological candor and methodological wisdom. It is a call to personal renewal for those involved in campus ministry and a field guide for the public reclamation of our campuses for the glory and fame of God. You will not be able to put this down!
-Matt Adair, Lead Pastor, Christ Community Church, Athens, GA; regional coordinator, The Acts 29 Network
Every once in a while you run across a book that is so "on target" that you just can't put it down. This is one of those books! College Ministry in a Post-Christian Culture is a must read for anyone wanting to reach today's college students with the good news of Jesus Christ! This book is poised to assist college and campus ministers in making the necessary transitions to a more missional model of ministry, in order to reach an increasingly uninterested target audience, during some of the most formative years of their lives.
-Dr. Guy Chmieleski, University Minister, Belmont University
In my experience, college students are some of the best, most effective missionaries in the Church. However, the way God is reaching, developing and sending out students looks drastically different than it did 20 years ago. This book concisely captures the current movement of God that has the potential to transform existing campus ministries as well as the campuses they engage. I am thrilled to see such a robust theological and practical work for the collegiate context!
-Todd Engstrom, Pastor of Missional Communities, The Austin Stone Community Church
College Ministry in a Post-Christian Culture provides the best strategy I have seen for how to reach students (and the institution itself) with the gospel. Steve Lutz clearly explains why college ministry is so desperately needed and offers a missional paradigm to effectively minister to today s students.
-Derek Melleby, Author of Make College Count: A Faithful Guide to Life and Learning
In College Ministry in a Post-Christian Culture Steve Lutz provides a much needed resource for understanding and connecting with one of the most strategic ministry people groups in the world college students. Anyone involved in campus ministry will not want to be without this resource. I really cannot recommend this book more highly.
-Brad Brisco, Church Planting Strategist
College Ministry in a Post-Christian Culture is a fresh analysis of the way that church and collegiate ministries view today s college campus. Long gone are the days of campus-wide impact simply through attractional events and meetings. Read this book and get ready to change the way you do ministry!
