A Practical Plan for Uniting Campus Ministries in Prayer and Mission
What happens when campus ministry leaders are compelled by a God-given vision that is bigger than any one of their own ministries?
What happens when campus ministry leaders unite day and night to pray for revival?
What happens when campus ministry leaders see their campus as one common mission field?
What happens when campus ministry leaders equip and mobilize their students as missionaries to every people group on campus?
Find out what happens by reading about what God is doing at the University of Texas through Campus Renewal Ministries. God has united campus ministries around a vision to reach all 50,000 students at UT with the gospel each year, and they are taking practical steps to see their vision accomplished.
What They're Saying...
“I have known and worked with Justin for almost two decades. He was actively working toward building united prayer-based missional movements long before these concepts became more mainstream. This book is not just full of good ideas or general theological statements. Instead, everything in it comes from tested principles, which have been worked out in a real-life environment — namely the University of Texas. If you are interested in seeing the Church gain better leverage to transform a city, campus, or country, then this is the book for you.”
President, Campus Renewal Ministries
“Campus Renewal is a chronicle of hope. It provides the story of a profound movement of God that is underway; but it also builds on-ramps for others who want to merge into this stream. I am hoping that the lessons here will be adopted by church leaders everywhere and applied to their ministry settings. If that happens, then the story of what is happening at the University of Texas could become your story too.”
Missional Leadership Specialist, Leadership Network, Dallas, Texas
“Wow. What a powerful story of transformation and seeing God turn a campus ‘right-side up’! Could this kind of spiritual teamwork, revival, and impact happen at your school? Read, enjoy, soak it in, then ask the Lord to use you to spark a prayer-saturated, Christ-exalting, Body-unifying movement at your college.”
Founder, Student Mobilization and author of Fuel and the Flame
“Justin tells it well. You can sense right away that you aren’t being sold on a program, but instead, you’re being told a true story. Justin unfolds the true story in a way that highlights the truths that he and others have lived and learned over many years. I’ve known and walked (literally) with Justin and others at UT for years. I doubt you’ll be able to read this story and fail to be encouraged to keep pressing on in prayer-sustained biblical hope for your campus or community.”
Co-editor of Perspectives on the World Christian Movement
“Are you a campus minister or a Christian student looking for practical input on how to transform your campus? Are you looking for something that is Kingdom-minded, Spirit-led, and will help you find the way forward even amidst a challenging situation? If so, you are holding in your hands a treasure of wisdom that will help you see your entire campus impacted for Christ. Justin Christopher has done a wonderful job keeping the profound message in this book simple, yet insightful and engaging. May God raise up key people across the nation who will read and apply the truths in this book, so we can once again see Christ honored as King of kings and Lord of lords over the world of higher education.”
Founder and Director, Collegiate Impact
“Justin provides a systematic approach to transforming colleges through prayer. Although this model is geared toward colleges and universities, it can be used across a variety of settings. His enthusiasm, along with real-life illustrations and testimonials, is deeply captivating. Justin's account of perseverance, consistency and being strategic in prayer for 19 years serves as an example to encourage us all to be faithful to the work where we have been called."
Chief Operating officer, Coalition for Christian Outreach
“As a campus minister for 31 years, I was inspired as I read Justin Christopher's Campus Renewal. I have used and experienced many evangelistic tools and programs throughout my years on campus. One of the greatest methods of evangelism given to us by Jesus is often neglected. Our love for and unity with fellow Christians creates a powerful witness. Campus Renewal paints a practical way to unite the Body of Christ starting with the foundation of prayer. It builds on that foundation with simple, strategic, effective ideas to get the gospel to students; students that have been gathered into a rich environment for contact with believers, and who after graduation, will change the world for better or worse. Our universities are too strategic to ignore the fresh vision cast by Justin Christopher. This book is not just theory, but its ideas have been proven effective at the University o Texas and hundreds of others that have followed their example. A must read for those ministering on campus today."
