When I was in LA I had the chance to sit down with some of my friends. One of those friends was Reggie Joiner. In case you don’t know who he is, here’s a few things that might ring a bell: co-author of Seven Practices for Effective Ministry, author of Think Orange, Catalyst Conferences, the founder of reThink, founder The Orange Conference, a guy who helped Andy Stanley start NorthPoint just outside Atlanta.
The more I get to know him I realize, beyond this STUFF that he loves God, loves his wife and family, and those around him (that live life with him daily) love him as well. This, to me, says all I need to know. You should also know that I think he is one of the top thinkers we have in the Church today. For sure. No doubts in my mind.
I have the privilege of currently writing a book with Reggie (along with another friend Abbie Smith) and I’m very excited to be processing through these issues with him. Anyway, I asked him to share ONE quick thought for those working in college ministry. He did. It’s very simple. What do you think? Agree? Disagree? Why?
