The Medellin area has over 3 million people and is home to 13 universities. Ministry to college students is so important because it is a time when big life questions are asked, world-views are formed, and faith is tested. Yet, few ministries exist to college students in Latin America. As college students are preparing to make an impact as the next generation of leaders, their impact can be a witness to others when they put God first and seek to glorify him above all else.
Growing God’s Church
The goal of the campus ministry is to make disciples who love the church….lifelong. Christ loves the church and gave himself up for her (Ephesians 5:25). The church is God’s chosen vehicle to mold us into image bearers. As sheep we are prone to wander and so we need to live in community with the flock– the church, the body of Christ. In the local church, students will worship together, grow in faith and understanding through the teaching of God’s word, experience community with believers of all ages, and serve others.
