Pennsylvania/South Jersey has approximately 750,000 students on about 225 campuses, one of the largest student populations in the nation. If we are to reach our region, it is vital that reaching our student population be an essential part of our strategy. We currently have about 15 vocational campus ministers serving across our region on 13 campuses, accompanied by a number of short-term workers, plus a number of churches that are reaching out to the campuses within their context. We need more campus ministers, more churches to intentionally engage campuses within their spheres of influence, and more church plants that have a ministry to students in their DNA.
Our Goal: Kingdom-focused young adults who accelerate Kingdom growth in the following ways:
Passionate followers of the Lord Jesus Christ
Persuasive communicators of Christ’s claims
Proponent of Christ’s Mission to reconcile people to God and each other
Perspicuously principled pursuer and practitioner of God’s Justice
Pain-moving, problem-engaging, Power-of-God stewarding person whose presence always makes a difference in their world
