About Hope for the Nations

When John Allen began working in college ministry over 25 years ago, the vast majority of the students he met had gone to church growing up or had some sense of who Jesus is and what his teachings say

However, every year since his start, the percentage of students who went to a church has been decreasing. On many campuses that percentage has dropped from 70% to at most 20%. At the same time, most of the college ministries have remained focused on reaching out to the presently Christian student or students who have some church background, creating few opportunities for those who have never encountered the gospel of Jesus Christ.
