Full Circle Story
Campus Life provides opportunities to invest in the lives of students through their formative years of Middle School and High School. Daily, we see the influence we have in students’ lives while they are a part of our ministry but we are able to see a full picture of our impact years after they have graduated.
Megan* is a perfect picture of how Christ transforms students’ lives through Campus Life. Megan served as a Core student in Campus Life when she was in high school. She fully embraced the mission of Youth for Christ and leveraged Campus Life to invite her friends into Christ-sharing relationships with peers and leaders. Megan is now in college and continues to use her gifts and passions to serve in Youth for Christ. During her summer break, Megan spent two weeks serving at YFC Camp. She spent one week on the programming team using skits, comedy, and fun events to share Jesus in a new and relatable way with students. The second week, she joined Project Serve working in the kitchen and serving high school students their meals. Megan didn't just serve food during this week. She went above and beyond to build a relationship with the students at her designated tables by learning their names, leaving encouraging notes, and making each student feel special. It didn't take long before the students began cheering and chanting her name at each meal time. We love seeing full circle stories where students who have experienced life-change through Youth for Christ. Join us in this mission to reach more students with the good news of Jesus!
