Campus Outreach is a ministry built on relationships. Through these life-on-life relationships, college students come to know Christ, mature in their relationship with Him, and share their lives and faith with others through evangelism and discipleship. The influence of Campus Outreach does not end at graduation. The success of our vision is measured best by the students graduate and carry the vision of following Christ and reaching world for Him!
