Reach Your Campus. Reach Your World.

Most may not realize it, but the concept of campus ministry has a precedent established in the Bible. Long before there were school mascots, degree plans, and bad cafeteria food, students were gathering in places of higher education to learn and discuss differing philosophies of the times.

In Acts 19, we read of one such institution called “the school of one Tyrannus.” History reveals that this “school” was a lecture hall of some kind. In the first century, it would have been used to host the typical classes during the day, but at night it could have been reserved for other purposes. Here on this campus we find the apostle Paul disputing (teaching, discussing, conversing) daily with students who were eager to learn about the gospel. As a result of Paul’s efforts to teach and train students on that campus … Read More »



Do You Like Gifts? A CMI Story

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized, everyone of you, for the remission of your sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost” (Acts 2:38).

On January 13, 2017, over 200 campus ministers representing more than ninety different campuses from at least eighteen different states gathered in an auditorium at the University of Louisville. Earlier that day, these same campus ministers had canvased the campus with thousands of flyers inviting students to the service taking place that night. When the time finally came, the level of faith and expectancy that God was about to do something special was through the roof.

Before the service began, we determined that there were twenty-one students from the local college who were there and had never received the gift of the Holy Ghost before. We believed God was about to … Read More »



CMI Brown University

Greetings from the deputation route (Vermont, to be more exact)!

I have received personal notes from several of you asking how things are going as I have been neglectful to send sending out monthly newsletters this semester. I am truly sorry that I have not been more diligent in sending updates, but I have simply found that words are inadequate to describe what God is doing at Brown.

Words fail to describe the moments of sitting across the table from a student who has been contemplating suicide, not knowing what to do but to tell them that Jesus loves them and has a plan for their lives and then offer to pray with them. Words cannot express the pain I see in the eyes of students who are struggling with addictions even as they are involved in individual Bible studies, wanting … Read More »



Campus Ministry in Ohio

28th March

Over the last month, I’ve received several reports from campus ministry chapters all across Ohio. Here a few of them.

The University of Akron launched their first Bible study in February and had five first time guests.
The Ohio State (Newark campus) started their first Bible study last month that had fifteen first time guests. Katelyn Brake is heading that chapter up. She reported people hung out for about two hours just asking questions and getting connected with information on when and where they will be meeting in the future.
The chapter in Miami University (RedLife) met again with three first time guests.
At the Ohio State University, there has been a girl coming for several weeks. She opened up to us early on about her story and her struggle. Later, she let us know she is ready to make a change in … Read More »



Spotlight on Campus Ministry International

Posted by admin in Campus Ministry. No Comments

27th January

Campus Ministry International (CMI), a branch of the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI), is a ministry that focuses on evangelizing college campuses everywhere with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We encourage the mindset that Apostolic students are not just to attend class, study hard, and successfully graduate with a degree, but they are also sent to their campuses as a witness “to bear witness of the Light, that all men through [them] might believe” (John 1:7).
