I don’t want my students to stay my students forever. I want them to leave.
I have the awesome privilege of serving in full-time student ministry… And perhaps, my initial statement made you question my ability or commitment to my role. Rest assured, I love my students. I adore them. I cheer through long track meets in Georgia heat for them. I leave my call volume on high at night just in case one of them needs something.
But even still, I don’t want my students to stay my students forever.
