Our Mission

The Need:

As part of Campus Ministry United, it is our goal to expand campus ministries across this nation.  We need your help to accomplish this task.  We are appealing to hearts and minds to contribute funds and contacts to achieve planting campus ministries in order to spread the gospel message of Jesus Christ.

Barna research shows 77% of those who make a decision for Christ in the United States do so before the age of 21.  There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the United States with an estimated enrollment of 20 million students. The Church of Christ now has only 138 active Campus Ministries.  In other words, 97% of the colleges and universities in the United States lack a Church of Christ campus ministry. This bleak report means there are literally millions of young people who are about to make the most pivotal and essential choice of their life without the gospel message as presented by the Church of Christ. 

The U.S. college campus is the ripest mission field in the Unites States today.  The potential reaches internationally as well due to the foreign exchange opportunity on our campuses today.  We at Campus Ministry United are committed to that mission field.

Bill Bright once said; “Change the campus today; change the world tomorrow”. This statement rings just as true today!  Please consider our appeal!

CMU’s Three-Fold Mission:

1) Train New Campus Ministers.

  • Recruit effective, passionate people.
  • Provide practical training within existing effective ministries.
  • Encourage academic training in brotherhood universities.
  • Send into field trained and equipped to reach college students for Christ.

2) Assist churches sponsoring new ministry plants.

  • Plug churches into a network of ministries with expertise and experience.
  • Provide trained personnel to work on-site.

3) Provide enrichment materials and seminars to bless existing ministries.

  • Annual CMU Workshop at Harding University – providing interactive communication with tools and ideas to equip campus ministries.
  • Bi-annual evaluative studies of Church of Christ campus ministries – charting development of the field fellowship-wide.

Goals reached so  far:
