WHY WE NEED YOU

"I prefer a church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a Church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security..." -Pope Francis

  • College students in a special way need to know that only the Lord satisfies the deepest desires of our hearts.

  • College campuses are the battlegrounds for the minds and souls of young people, with an outcome that will affect them for the rest of their lives. 

  • Of the 4,500 total universities in the U.S., only 800 have full-time ministry staff. "The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few." (Matthew 9:37)
