The Gospel in Action (GIA) is an effort to weave the compassionate works and words of the gospel into the fabric of the Campus Ministry. Our mission is to connect Win/Build/Send movements to pressing human need, helping the spiritually and physically oppressed and bringing the hope and healing of Christ to our broken world.
The ultimate purpose of GIA initiatives is making Jesus Lord over broken people, broken places, and broken systems. Our desire is to give a watching world pictures of the power of the gospel to transform people and places, and to give them a foretaste of a Kingdom where Jesus has set everything right.
On this page, you’ll find stories, tools, and materials that will help you blend gospel declaration and demonstration together, both across the street and around the world.

Jesus alone satisfies the deepest longings of the human heart. He alone can rescue and save. By God’s great grace, let us build movements of professors and students who give their lives to loose the chains of injustice and bind up the broken-hearted in Jesus' Name - all the while employing words to point to His supremacy and explain the saving power of His character, substitutionary death, and resurrection life. Always, our hope is for the glory of God. “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
Has God always been concerned about extending His love and forgiveness to all nations and peoples of the earth? Both the Old and New Testaments show God’s offer of grace is to everyone — Jew and Gentile alike.
When you tell your story, it’s God who is responsible for changing people’s hearts. You are simply called to be ready and to share what God has done in your life.
