WHY CAMPUS LIFE?

We believe Campus Life is effective in reaching middle school and high school teens in their world.  It gives us a strategic way to pursue every young person at local schools in communities all over the USA.

WHAT IS CAMPUS LIFE?

Campus life ministry combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools. Like every ministry of YFC, Campus Life seeks to engage these young people wherever they are found as life-long followers of Jesus Christ.  Campus Life encourages a balanced life - mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially.

HOW DOES CAMPUS LIFE WORK?

"3Story®" Relationships - Our Way of Life

Youth for Christ staff and volunteers are encouraged and trained to live a 3Story life: A way of life that guides followers of Christ to BE good news while telling stories of THE Good News. It is a way of seeing how the relationships we have with other people and God can be connected and grown. 3Story is not an evangelism tool or method, it is who we want to be and how we want to live. In YFC, 3Story is our living operating system. Our hope is that it becomes our DNA.For more information about 3Story, visit www.3story.org
