"But the one who received the seed
that fell on good soil is the man
who hears the word and understands
it. He produces a crop,
yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty
times what was sown."
We are beginning a fund drive for 100
individuals and/or churches who will
commit to $100 a month. By reaching
this goal we will be able to initiate a
new campus ministry every year. Each
ministry will be staffed with a trained
passionate minister who can relate
and coordinate activities and organization
on the local university as well
as promote spiritual development
with involved students. It is an exciting
opportunity for sharing Good News.

Campus Ministry Training
Our Training Philosophy
Studies have shown that the most evangelistically effective leaders have been trained, and evangelistically effective campus ministries don't pop up by accident.
Our God wants all men to be saved (1 Tim. 2:4), and 'all' leaves out no one! The entire purpose of Jesus' ministry is summed up in one statement found in Luke 19:10: "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." Jesus' purpose was/is 'to seek and to save,' and, while He is the only One who ultimately pays for our sins, His plan was never for Him to be the only One involved in the salvific work of reaching lost people.
Jesus sent His disciples out into the world to continue His mission of seeking and saving the lost. His final marching orders recorded in Matthew 28:18-20 to go into all the world making disciples of all people, baptizing them and teaching them to obey God weren't just for the early disciples - they're for present disciples too.
But Jesus never intended for anyone to go into the world making disciples unprepared.
Jesus spent nearly three full years with His disciples before sending them out to continue His work. Jesus didn't enroll them in a school - the disciples walked with Him, for He was the school.
Consider the apostle Paul's work with Timothy and Titus. Neither of these young men were sent into the field to take over ministries of their own without first walking with Paul learning by being with him. Fast forward to the present. If you'd like to become an evangelistically effective campus minister, you'll do so by first walking with someone who already is.
CMU has identified the most evangelistically effective campus ministries among the Churches of Christ, and has partnered with several to provide opportunities in practical, hands-on training for interested parties. Bible degrees are a good thing, but they're not good enough on their own. Practical training is a must, and that's what CMU offers.
