Who We Are
Collegians for Christ is a 501c3 nonprofit organization established to assist students and a sponsoring local church that have a desire to reach their campus by establishing a Collegians for Christ ministry on their college campus.
A Rich History…
Collegians for Christ originated on the campus of the University of Tennessee a little over twenty years ago. It was established by a group of students and Temple Baptist Church in Powell, TN which both had an overwhelming burden to reach the many college students on their local campus. After years of fruitful outreach on that campus, God has begun spreading Collegians for Christ to other college campuses.
A Bright Future…
God is moving with students and churches excited about the opportunity to establish a ministry on their local campus. In 2012, Collegians for Christ was established at Appalachian State University. In the following years, a number of other new campus ministries have been established across the country. Other students and churches are praying about beginning a campus ministry. Pray that God will do great things!
Rooted in the Church…
The local church is the means God uses to reach the world. Our passion is to come alongside the students and the local church to encourage, train, equip, and assist in establishing officially-recognized, on-campus Bible studies to reach the many students and faculty on their campus. Each Collegians for Christ ministry is, from its inception, a student initiated and student led organization sponsored by a local church in its area.
