Community is not an activity but an environment. Sometimes this environment flows very naturally, but sometimes we need to be intentional in building a healthy community where people are experiencing an environment of grace and truth.
Some suggestions to build healthy community:
- Visit other campuses: Students from one university participating in meetings and activities of another university helps strengthen the bonds of friendship among students involved in a city or region. It also increases the sense of ownership of the movement as students feel responsible for each other.
- Off-campus social gatherings: Picnics, parties, games night, watching a movie together, etc. The sky is the limit of things that can be done so students build healthy relationships and have fun together.
- Pray for each other: Enjoy fellowship through prayer can be a powerful way to build a healthy environment within the movement. As students share prayerful requests, they will nurture deep relationships with one another.
