College leaders gather in Mobile for Unite

Alabama Baptist campus ministers joined other student leaders in Mobile on Nov. 11 for Unite, an event hosted by the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions focused on resourcing, equipping and encouraging those ministering to college and university students.

Jody Dean, associate professor for Christian education at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and Emily Hamilton, collegiate consultant at Etowah Baptist Association, led a discussion of best practices in college ministries. Topics included facilities management, recognizing the warning signs of mental illness and communications policies.

An estimated 200,000 students on Alabama college campuses are unreached with the gospel, making it the largest missions field in the state. (TAB)
