The Collegiate Partnerships Team partners with local churches to impact every college and university campus in North Carolina so that there is “No Campus Left” without a reproducing gospel presence.
Collegiate Partnerships seeks to partner with churches to reach the campus by:
- Helping them develop a ministry to college students that best fits their church.
- Helping them to understand their collegiate landscape.
- Equipping them with resources.
- Connecting them with other collegiate leaders.
What is a reproducing gospel presence?
A reproducing gospel presence includes the following four criteria as defined by the “No Campus Left” movement.
It is under the authority of the local church. Reaching the college campus is the biblical responsibility of the local church and authority ensures ownership of the mission.
It is doctrinally sound. Specifically, it perpetuates and upholds orthodox theology (i.e. the authority of Scripture, the triune nature of God, the exclusivity of Christ, etc.) in a Protestant tradition.
It is a group. It can be a large group, a small group, or a network of small groups. A reproducing gospel presence gathers because disciples are made in community.
It is making disciples. The group fosters a disciple-making culture that results in multiplication. This can be demonstrated as disciples who are making more disciples, groups who are multiplying by starting more groups, or entire ministries that are taking new ground by starting new works on new campuses.
