About Campus for Christ

Pursuing God's Vision to Transform the World for Christ through Campus Ministry


In 1957, a group of Christians gathered on the campus of Texas Tech University to discuss how to best share the gospel with 18 to 25 year olds on college campuses across the nation. That became an annual meeting which has continued for the last 60 years and takes place late summer each year.

The annual meeting, currently known as the Campus for Christ Conference, is for anyone who has a passion to reach the college campus. The conference has become a place for those of us involved in the work to come together and inspire one another by sharing victories experienced throughout the year, encourage one another where there are wounds or scars, and discuss strategies on how we might best spread the hope and good news of Jesus with the students who cross our paths daily. Keynote speakers, mentoring, networking and practical classes on campus ministry make the conference a life-giving tradition for those who come.

College campuses are one of the world’s greatest mission fields as they contain thousands of impressionable minds from all over the world. College students are the future leaders of the church and of the world. The college years are pivotal in a person’s life, and consequently, we believe that campus ministry is an essential work. We invite you to partner with us however God leads you as we seek to serve Him.
