A Place Where You Matter

By Andi Woodring, Director of Campus Life Ministries

Campus Life is a place where all students can come and feel welcome, have fun, know they’re loved, and hear that they matter. We share this message every time we meet. 

Taylor just started attending club this past summer and LOVES Campus Life. Taylor, who identifies as a boy, has been attending with Morgan (Taylor’s girlfriend) weekly.  

This past week, Taylor shared with me, “I have never felt welcome at any youth group I have been to, and I feel so welcome by you and the leaders here. I love Campus Life.” 

This is why Campus Life exists. Our leaders engage teens on a regular basis who do not attend church and don’t know much, if anything, about Jesus. Many of them know nothing about who our God truly is, that He unconditionally loves them, and that He wants a relationship with them. 

This is what Campus Life is for. Leaders doing life with teens—learning their stories, sharing our stories, and introducing them to God’s story. We are a relational ministry.  Our team is dedicated to introducing the life of Christ into the stories of today’s teens and loving them exactly where they are. They are desperate for hope in this broken world. 

Thank you for being a part of the ongoing conversation with youth in our city and helping us share God’s story.  It's our honor to be the storytellers on your behalf who meet kids right where they are and give life to their story. 

Providing young people in our community with the opportunity to make an informed decision to be a follower of Jesus Christ and become part of a local church.
