Reach the Campus Now!
Surveys tell us that 85% of all people who accept Christ do so before graduating from high school. One thing that virtually all young people in our society have in common is attending high school. Graduation marks the last time an entire community is together.
In order to integrate faith with the daily life of the Christian young person, the time spent in school Monday through Friday must be aggressively addressed. The young person who learns how to be used by God on the high school campus will not be content just to sit in the pew the rest of his life. He will be an active agent in fulfilling the Great Commission from that time on.
Meeting the challenge to win your campus for Christ takes you off defense and puts you on offense. As a Christian student, you know more non-Christians during your junior and senior high school years than any other time in your life. The fastest way to impact the entire youth population of your community is through the high school campus.
Negative peer pressure on high school campuses puts tremendous pressure on Christian young people. A campus ministry creates positive peer pressure for students. Although many think that the world of the Christian young person revolves around the church, it usually revolves around the school. The school is where the greatest amount of time is spent, values are formed, and friendships are made. This strategic part of the Christian young persons life must be given more than casual thought.
Why should you and your friends be involved in campus ministry?
