WHY CAMPUS LIFE ?

YFC Vision

As part of the body of Christ, our vision is to see every young person in every people group in every nation have the opportunity to make an informed decision to be a follower of Jesus Christ and become a part of a local church.

 

We believe Campus Life is the best way to reach middle school and high school teens in their world.  It gives us a strategic way to pursue the “every” at local schools throughout Guilford County and in communities all over the USA.

 

WHAT IS CAMPUS LIFE ?

Campus Life ministry combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools.  Like every ministry of YFC, Campus Life seeks to engage these young people wherever they are found as lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.  Campus Life is a place for high school and middle school students to have fun, make friends and talk about what matters.  Campus Life provides a balanced approach – physical, mental, social and spiritual – to give teens the skills and hope they need to live in a turbulent world.

 

HOW DOES CAMPUS LIFE WORK ?

3STORY

First it is important to note that Campus Life focuses heavily upon relational evangelism.  In that regard, we teach and model 3Story.  3Story is a way of life that guides followers of Christ to BE good news while telling stories of THE good news.  It is natural, friendly, and freeing – as you abide in Christ, His love flows through you to others as you journey together.

 

The 5 Essentials – The 5 values we filter everything through in YFC and Campus Life.
