From the GA website - Presbyterians involved with college ministry gathered at the 219th General Assembly (2010) to discuss their work and those they serve.
The keynote speaker, the Rev. Stephen Hayner, president of Columbia Theological Seminary, has worked with 18- to 25-year-olds for 40 years.
Young adults are motivated people who can change the world, and young adulthood is a time of exploration and discernment, Hayner said. “It’s one of the most energetic, imaginative, critical times in all of our lives.”
But from a Presbyterian standpoint, college students are one of the most underserved groups in the United States, and college pastors and chaplains are often under-resourced, unacknowledged and lonely.
