Every Student Sent is a national movement and a free community-based platform to prepare every 10-12th grade student for college along with our partners, then connect them with a missional team of ministry leaders, pastors, and other freshmen headed to the same college as much as a year in advance. They can find roommates and missional friends to reach other incoming freshmen s during the first weeks when they are especially open. The goal of this coalition is to reverse the 70% drop-off, double freshmen believers, in order to triple the number of culture changers who will graduate after 4 years. The harvest is plentiful, but the workers have been too few. It's time to empower them to impact our universities, workplaces, and cities!

I believe that a way God is going to move in power in these coming days is with incoming freshmen. Waiting for students to be found by campus ministries is the old way. We now have an opportunity with Every Student Sent to connect with incoming freshmen before they land on campus. I encourage your college students to share this with their home churches so we don’t have any students left behind. (Video banner: ESS was previously called Campus Ministry Link)

Every Student Sent is an incredible platform we need at this time. The beginning of the year is such a key time for students to get connected. New (pre-Christian) students are trying determine what life is all about and it’s a time of ripe harvest. With ESS, you can connect with other believers and get resourced with biblical material. We're going to see the church grow and non-believers come into faith. Let you friends know.
City-wide movements understand that the harvest is plentiful, but they need more laborers. Every Student Sent can reverse the 70% loss and multiply laborers to transform culture - as it becomes normal for all students to prepare and connect. The strategic benefit of equipped freshmen reaching freshmen during the first month "Sweet Spot" when non-believers are especially open is key.
