American Universities are racially, ethnically and nationally diverse. This presents campus ministry with an opportunity to reach across racial, ethnic and nationality barriers with the message of Christ in a social environment where that is more the norm than perhaps outside of the university setting. The potential to impact the world through international students who return home and students who will live or do business internationally is great. Student diversity also challenges campus ministry staff to perhaps go beyond their own ethnic comfort zones. It provides students the opportunity and challenge to be a Christian community that models the New Testament ideal of being one in Christ.
