About Campus Outreach
Glorifying God by Building Laborers on the Campus for the Lost World.
Building laborers demands many resources, but the returns on this investment are immeasurable. Our prayer is that students will graduate not only equipped to build their careers, but also the kingdom of God.
On the college campus:
The college campus is a strategic mission field. College students are at the crossroads of life, making lifetime decisions and moving out to influence the world. It is an ideal time to challenge them to live according to God’s Word.
For the lost world:
The desire of Campus Outreach is to glorify God by influencing the world for Christ through mobilizing laborers to proclaim the gospel to all nations. Our vision is that trained graduates would provide leadership in every sphere of influence (the church, community, business, medicine, education, missions, etc.) at home and around the world.
In addition to mobilizing individuals, it is the vision of Campus Outreach to mobilize teams both in the States and around the world. Since our inception in 1989, Campus Outreach Augusta has launched teams to four other areas: CO-Charlotte, CO-Greenville, CO-Atlanta, and CO-Charleston.
Scope of ministry:
The Campus Outreach ministries bring together the college campus, the local church, and the mission field for maximum impact. Since its beginning in 1979, the ministry has grown to reach campuses in the Southeastern United States, Thailand, Brazil, Central Asia, New Zealand and Japan.
Commitment to small campuses:
COA is committed to building ministries on small college campuses. Many organizations have ministered on a few large campuses, but for the most part the smaller campuses have been overlooked. These small campuses, where thousands of students attend school, are in many cases unexplored territory for an evangelical discipleship-oriented ministry.
