CMU Training: Overview & Philosophy

The leaders involved with Campus Ministry United believe the purpose driving Jesus’ ministry is articulated in Luke 19:10:

Luke 19:10
“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

Everything about Jesus’ ministry revolved around that purpose. He specialized in helping the men and women following him become the people God created them to be so that they could turn around and do the same thing for others.

Jesus’ final marching orders before his departure crystallized that message:

Matthew 28:18-20
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

The individuals leading  CMU take Jesus’ command to “make disciples of all nations” seriously, and training is primarily focused on helping individuals and teams learn to do that.

We do not believe sitting in a classroom is the best way to learn how to lead an effective ministry. While there is much to be gained from academics, we believe the best lessons are learned outside the classroom in the everyday life of a healthy ministry.

Trainees will learn by being with, being a part, and by doing.*

Learn by Being With

You will learn by being with campus ministry leaders and students in the day-to-day operations of a healthy ministry.

Learn by Being a Part

You will not simply be a passive observer, but an active part of the ministry you are training within. You will be studied with, counseled, and discipled yourself.

Learn by Doing

Over time and as you develop, you will be given ministry responsibilities to perform and be evaluated.
