It's been a year of change for us. We started 2012 with a new strategy for RC. We realized that we were trying to do too much. Discipleship, evangelism, defending truth on campus, mentoring, answering skeptics and seeker, etc. It was too much for too few people.To narrow our goals, we wanted to focus on training Christian students to be confident evangelists. We changed all of our promotional material and ads to reflect this. Most Christians, we assumed, know they're supposed to share their faith -- they just don't know how or don't have the confidence.
We soon found that while many new students we talked to on campus were on board with this new direction, they just didn't show up. It was a good semester with a steady attendance, but I could tell something wasn't quite right.
