From the Rock On Campus Files

We see it all the time. Look down the halls of any campus and you’ll find students tweeting, texting and checking Facebook.

They're busy texting their friends, checking Facebook for family updates, tweeting about their classes and emailing their place of part-time employment. These are the modern tools of social connection.

Electronic networking technology is here to stay, and it will continue to impact their and my world tomorrow. The reality is that students treat social networking technology as a 'matter-of-fact' way of connecting. While the Christian community has embraced the benefits of the technology, it remains the role of the church to develop personal social interactions that foster spiritual exploration and growth. It's both an opportunity and a challenge for the local church.

There are major challenges that exist: how do we make faith in Christ personal for our youth and young adults, and how do we make faith in Jesus a genuine reality for the hundreds of thousands of churched youth who are now questioning their faith, exploring other ideologies, leaving their faith, and walking away from the church you and I hold dear.

A young woman from Eastern Ontario comes to college to get away from home only to discover that her faith wasn't as real as she thought. In fact it was lacking true depth or focus…until she runs into classmates whose sexual preferences and practices force her to seek Christian community through The Rock on Campus. Now a student leader and very serious about her faith, the student is looking at further post-secondary education and a more passionate relationship with Jesus.

A young man who has struggled academically for a number of years returns to college, eager to make a new start in a new discipline. He seeks the chaplain for accountability and makes a home with Christians on campus, meeting each week through The Rock on Campus.

A mature student returns to college after an absence of many years. He is looking for life direction as he struggles with his faith and as he seeks to learn what God wants from him. The chaplain at The Rock on Campus provides pastoral counselling and a listening ear as this man wrestles with theology and the reality of uncommon faith in a common world.

Another student is eager to know how to put his faith into practice because he believes that God has called him to be a "Hope dealer". The chaplain plugs the student into a local church and reaches out to develop mentorship opportunities.

These are just some of the stories that live in the halls of community colleges in Ontario. The chaplains of The Rock on Campus are serving faithfully to bring messages of hope and share about the power of transformation that Jesus Christ offers. We seek to be that meaningful connection to the body of Christ, his church.
