WE CAN EXPECT to see more of this kind of thing. Mt Carmel Ministries (a Lutheran camping and conference ministry) is creating a new Christian campus community in partnership with a local community college.

THE COVENANT CHURCH in Canada has a similar ministry with their Life Together Christian community in Calgary, but have not integrated the academic piece. ~ link
