Where are we going as a ministry? We want to see laborers bless campuses, cities, and cultures. A laborer is any individual intentionally engaged in making his or her unique contribution to the redemptive work of the Gospel.
What are we doing as a ministry? Campus Outreach’s aim is “glorifying God by building laborers on the campus for the world.”
The ultimate purpose of God and of all His creation is to bring attention to God, or toglorify, Him forever (Is. 43, Ps. 33, Ps. 115, Rom. 1 & 8, Eph. 1, Rev. 5). Because there is nothing and no one more valuable or important than God Himself, Campus Outreach exists that He may continually receive what He deserves and is due to Him–praise, honor, and glory from us as we find our joy in Him. We, like many throughout history, desire to spread a passion for the glory of God throughout the world. It is our desire that His identity, reputation, and fame be proclaimed to all people, in all places, by all appropriate means, as urgently as possible.
Jesus Christ once said, as he observed a large crowd of people, “The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few” (Mt. 9:37). That profound statement has rung true for more than 2,000 years and can certainly be applied to our world in the 21st century. There is no shortage of needs, problems, and opportunities awaiting the influence of an equipped leader (Eph. 4:11-16, Mt. 4:19) to make a difference. Our desire is to equip and enable each individual to make his or her unique contribution to the redemptive work of the Gospel. Campus Outreach seeks to work hand in hand with colleges, universities, churches, families, and individuals to produce these desperately needed Kingdom leaders and laborers.
ON THE CAMPUS
Next, we believe that the college campus is one of the greatest environments for building laborers since students possess the availability to receive training during a time in their life where they are developing their life values and practices. We are convinced that God has called us here with this mission for the betterment of individual students, the campus, and the world.
FOR THE WORLD
Lastly, our end goal is to produce more laborers from the campus to go into the world with the heart and training to love and impact others for Christ. Our desire is that graduates would provide leadership in every sphere of influence (the church, medicine, community, business, education, missions, etc.) by glorifying God and building laborers at home and around the world. In order to make this happen, we are committed to mobilizing graduates into unique opportunities where they can grow, develop, and make their unique contribution to the redemptive work of the Gospel.
