It All Comes Down to Changed Lives!

Campus One80 is an outreach to college students and a sister organization to Global One80. The mission of Campus One80 is to empower student leaders to transform their campuses with the Gospel, one life at a time. To assess success in that mission, the ministry looks for changed lives.

One story of a changed life is that of a student named Nate who attends a two-year school in Massachusetts. Nate had grown up attending church but in high school his family stopped going to church and Nate became disinterested in God. When Nate went to college, he decided to buy a Bible and investigate Christianity. Then one day he saw a flier for a One80 Bible study and decided to try it out and see if the others in the study could answer some of his questions. As the weeks progressed, Nate realized that he needed to give his life to Christ. He did that and was baptized in the summer.

Since giving his life to Christ, Nate has become an active member of a local church and last spring he applied to do an internship with Campus One80. Students like Nate are the goal of Campus One80. The ministry seeks to take each student they meet and take them one step closer to Jesus. The ultimate goal is to change lives. Students who don’t know Christ become Christ followers and then fully devoted followers of Jesus, who in turn are now reaching out to other students who don’t know Christ.

The college campus is strategically a key place to reach the next generation. We are able to go where the students are and share with them the hope of the Gospel. Many students are determining what they  believe during their college years and there is no better time to be there and answer their questions about God and the abundant life that Jesus offers us!

Our recent activity: Campus One80’s newest campus is at Roberts Wesleyan University. In one semester the ministry grew to 30 students. Though the school is historically Christian, it still has a high number of students who have rejected the faith or are attending only on a sports scholarship. Campus One80 is seeking to reach those students at the school who are not Christian and to disciple those who do know him.

We also request your help praying for our spring break project to help renovate a house for women coming out of abuse and drug addiction. This house is one of Global One80’s many US based ministries.

Plus, Campus One80 is looking for people with a heart for the college campus to join the staff team. New Staff will be trained through a two-year cohort model of training that includes on campus coaching, as well as group instruction and assignments. Additionally, several One80 staff have begun seminary training, which is very expensive. If you would like to help young staff gain the theological training necessary to serve on campus, please consider a gift to their seminary training. To discover the different ways to give, just email: finance@campusone80.com.
