Advice for Christian College Students: Tips for Growing in your Faith + Following Jesus in college

This video contains a ton of advice for any Christian in or soon to be entering college. I cover everything from intentionally making friends, to finding a church, to staying in the Word as a college student. There is still so much more I have to learn but these are the things God has put on my heart to share with you all! What has been your experience like in college so far? If you are in high school, what are some questions you have for me?

Let me know if there’s another related topic you’d like me to speak on!

Christ be magnified,

    On your request.Id plzzz like you to make more video’s about Christian Life in University/Colledge. Especially in specific to Study tips from a Christian view per say.I have watched quite a number of video’s on study tips and they are helpful alot.But what God brought my attention to .Is that al of the ones I watched don’t mention His name.Which is sad for me as a Christian you know.Because I mean God’s kingdom is run completely different to the world.And i Mean we are so bombarded with what the world says.Day in ,day out.So plzzzz make this video ASAp.ID appreciate much to learn from you.Im @csi0ww and im from South Africa.Studying at the University of Free State.I as well was thinking of starting a vlog in a sense like you..but yeah.

    it is amazing how a person with Jesus is enlightening. Today I was panicking because I felt like I was pulling myself away from God, and I’m in the senior year in high school. I literally searched on YouTube "Christian students" because I really needed inspiration and somebody to look at and say "hey, she is Christian in college and is changing her surroundings". Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  13. Elizabeth Dubinsky on May 17, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    Can you make a video about nervousness and trusting in God before exams/quizzes? What scriptures or encouragement do you hold onto during those stressful, college times?

    How to choose the books or verses to read in the Bible as a Christian college girl and what to do for fun after school on Friday and the weekend?

  15. Rex Henry on May 17, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Thanks kendra. I can’t thank God enough for what He’s doing through you your videos. I was personally bless to listen to your advises. When I was a student, I remember most of what you presented were my experiences. Pray that many students will plug in. I promise to share to students in Liberia. God bless you.

    God bless you, Kendra!
    I joined a University as a transfer international student. I was hesitant whether to join a college church group or not. As you said the first semester of your college time is the most crucial time. It’s a time that you lay your college foundation all the way up to your graduation.
    I want to ask if you can do a video on how your daily college life looks like? I mean when do you wake up, read and pray. How do you balance all of the school work and Christian life. Also, you may want to socialize with people too. What advice do you have for students who struggle to balance the time spent for school and christian duties?
    Thank you again. These little video that you are making are blessings and impactful.

    Hi Kendra! Thank you so much for your video and perspective! I will be a Butler Freshman in the fall and I really want to seek a more independent faith that requires me to put God above my ambitions! Both your college and faith tips are very relatable, and I appreciate the time you put into giving advice with a foundation in Christ!

  18. Sibusiso Simphiwe on May 17, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    Can we also get your IG handle please.If that okay.

  19. Tom Woodason on May 17, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Kendra, this was very well done. I am going to share this video with our College Connect group at church this Saturday night in Terre Haute. You made a list of some really great points. I so appreciate you and your heart for Jesus.
