Working with Other Christians on Campus

The key to campus ministry is cooperation and networking with other Christians on campus and the community. Your ministry will never realize its full potential until you have successfully worked with other Christians and have pulled together in the effort of winning souls for Christ. If there is already an active Christian group on your campus, try to join in with them. Do your best to be a part of the leadership of these clubs and organizations. Sadly enough, sometimes sold-out and committed Christian students do not get involved in these programs. If students committed to soul-winning are not involved in the leadership of these organizations, souls are seldom won to Christ. What results is a lack of an opportunity for students to come to know Jesus. It is imperative that highly committed Christians be at the core of leadership of any Christian organization on campus to ensure the group’s commitment to winning students to Christ.

It is, therefore, recommended that you as a missionary get very involved in what is happening on campus now. If there is no desire on the part of the current campus ministry group or its leadership to provide opportunities for students to come to know Christ, then we strongly suggest that you consider starting another campus ministry. Be sure you have investigated the leadership of the existing group thoroughly before you react and begin another ministry. Be sure that you have no misunderstandings or misinterpretations of their policies on campus ministry. Be sure that you ask a lot of questions and then evaluate whether or not to begin a new group on campus.

After submitting your application you should receive an email for the background check.  At that time please submit a check for $20 to Cru and mail it to; 100 Lake Hart Drive MC3200  Orlando  FL  32832.  If you do not receive this email then please contact us at cruhs.globalmissions@cru.org

3. CLICK ON THE “APPLY ONLINE” LINK NEXT TO THE MISSION YOU WANT TO APPLY FOR.

These questions will help you determine if you are ready to apply for a mission:

Once you click on “apply online” you will have multiple options for signing in. Use the one that will work best for you.
