A Letter from the Director:
The Mission Statement of CMI is: Campus Ministry International (CMI) is a ministry of the UPCI and ALJC that was formed to enable and encourage local churches to effectively reach out to the college and university populations in their vicinities with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Since its inception over 20 years ago, CMI has sought to provide the framework and resources necessary for the local churches and students of North America to reach into, what has largely been, one of the most untapped mission fields by the modern-day apostolic church. With nearly 22 million college students walking the campuses of our continent, there is an open door for increased evangelistic efforts that will bring the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ to these hungry students.
Every student goes to college for a different reason - some go solely for an education and some go solely for the party. Regardless, of their initial intention, each of those students are there looking for “truth.” Whether they know it or not, they are searching for that truth that will define their reality, craft their morals, and shape their future; the truth that they will live by and die by; the truth they will believe and practice for the rest of their lives. Our secular colleges and universities offer these students a myriad of truths to believe – atheism, agnosticism, and postmodernism, just to name a few. In this world where the multiplicity of truths is celebrated, it is imperative that we offer these students the opportunity to experience the One who is Truth – Jesus Christ.
What we are currently seeing are apostolic students from all over North America buying into the vision of CMI. As a result, these students are sharing the Truth with their classmates, faculty, and staff on their campuses. Many of these individuals are being delivered from lives filled with sin and shame, being healed of physical, emotional, and spiritual disease, being baptized in the name of Jesus, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and falling in love with the Truth that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
So, why does CMI exist?
It exists for the sole purpose of training and equipping an apostolic army that can go and reap the harvest of hungry souls that is ripe on the campuses of North America. It is with this vision in mind that we celebrate the successes of the past and press on into a new and exciting future.
We hope that this website will be a blessing to you, and if ever we can better serve you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
For our campuses,
CMI Director (UPCI)
