Erika has some good thoughts about NLCF, one of the campus ministries. She's involved with one of their worship teams, but has found that the ministry itself (which started at Tech, has a branch at Radford, and a mission in Los Angeles) doesn't really meet her needs. This tends to be a common complaint especially about NLCF, and to some extent many of the other ministries (Navs is not immune from complaint, either). In short, while no one doubts their dedication and earnestness, the seeming focus solely on evangelism and lack of depth makes it a decent "gateway" church, but not one where most people will stay for more than a little while.
