Adopt-A-Student Program


Support New Salem students while they are attending college!  The Adopt-A-Student Program serves as a means to provide transitional support to members of New Salem who have gone away from Central Ohio to seek full-time collegiate studies.

Adopt a student today! 

We encourage CARE Groups, families and ministries to adopt students for a school year and provide them with encouragement, care packages and prayer while they are away. Here are the adoption requirements:

  • Commit for at least 1 school year (Sept - May)
  • Assign a contact person that will keep the student's information confidential and give monthly updates to the program coordinator (by the 30th of each month)
  • Contact the student at least twice a month 
  • Send the student a CARE package (by Christmans and Easter)
  • Pray for the student weekly (especially the student's prayer requests)
  • Celebrate the student's progress and achievements
  • Send the student a card on their birthday 
  • Try to host the student at a group gathering when the student returns home
  • Contact the Dr. Christopher Travers regarding any major issues or problems that arise in the student's life

If you are interested in adopting a College Student please SIGN YOUR GROUP UP today using this link.

If you have any questions please contact Dr. Christopher Travers at (614) 930-2237 or ctravers@newsalemcares.com
