of Christian teens are choosing to no longer follow Jesus their first year of college.
Not only are so many Christian freshman failing to connect to faith communities, but they are also missing the opportunity to be transforming agents on their campus. A huge opportunity for laborers in the harvest is missed every year in the most influential people group in our nation.
Campus Renewal, in cooperation with national college ministries and church denominations, is creating an online search tool called Campus Ministry Link. This will directly connect graduating high school students to college ministries on any campus in the nation!
Black Rock Church in Fairfield, CT used to experience the typical 70% loss as their students were graduating.
“Last year I had all of my high school students participate…All were greatly challenged to be spiritually ready for college. Most were blown away by the idea that their first 72 hours at college were the most important in staying strong in their faith. As they have started college, they say that much of what they learned was true about their first days at college. Many of them were plugged into campus ministries quickly because of this. The result? All of our graduates continued in their faith!”
-Jeremy Taylor, HS Director, Black Rock Community Church, CT
The real success of Campus Ministry Link relies on the participation of as many campus ministries and churches reaching out to college students as possible. Many major para-church ministries and denominations are already partnered with us in this process, but if you are not sure if your ministry is in the system, please contact us using this form!
We want to add churches to the site who have a demonstrated history of serving a particular campus and the ministries there. If you believe this applies, please fill out the online application for our review.
Also, if you are networked with any other campus ministry staff workers locally or around the nation, please forward this page to them so they are not left out!
Participating national ministries include:
