Help us provide a steady voice and presence in young people's lives

The Campus Life programs offer hope, encouragement, and love to teenagers living in a turbulent culture. It is during this period that YFC staff reveal Biblical truth as it relates to daily living. Campus Life directors work with local teachers, counselors, administrators, youth pastors and parents in hopes of developing positive support networks for young people.

What is Campus Life?

Campus Life seeks to engage young people as life-long followers of Jesus Christ. Campus Life ministry combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices and establish a solid foundation for life. Campus Life is a place for students to have fun, make friends and talk about what matters. Campus Life provides a balanced approach – physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually – to give teens the skills and hope they need to live in a turbulent world.

How Does Campus Life Work?

CL staff and adult volunteers build relationships through the balanced practice of six Relational Ministry Action’s:

  • Contacting – going into the world of young people in order to initiate new relationships
  • Building Times – spending time in shared activities with young people in order to build new relationships and model Christ-like behavior (includes trips and events)
  • Appointments – meeting one on one to provide individual attention and focus on a young person’s specific need
  • Small Groups – a structured interactive meeting with 2-12 young people
  • Clubs – a weekly large group meeting of more than 25 students that’s high energy, safe, and friendly to any student, no matter where they are at in their faith journey
  • Student Leadership – Christian students who are committed to personal growth and influencing of the people around them for Christ.
