Following his resurrection, Jesus instructed his disciples to, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." This is not a command exclusively for adults but for all believers. Our goal at Campus Thrive is to empower middle school students to share the Good News about Jesus Christ within their schools. Students are trained to lead worship, teach, share testimonies and facilitate games. They put their training into practice once a week at their local schools, where hundreds of kids show up and hear the gospel being shared by their classmates and friends.
Our key verse is 1Timothy 4:12. “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”
Our Values- these are the things that we believe:
•All people have value
•Students are capable of leadership
•Following Jesus is the fullest life
•God speaks through his Spirit and his Word
Our Strategy - this is how we live out those values
•Dignity despite differences- we can disagree and still show compassion and kindness.
•Middle schoolers lead- the club is run by students
•We create environments students can lead in- adults help and serve students to create a place where students can lead
•We seek to live out God’s truths- we are not moved by opinions, we desire to do what scripture says.
Our Measures- this is the way we know we are doing what we are called to do.
•Leaders have followers. We want to impact the school and for others to see our lives be worth following.
•We look for personal kingdom growth- we want to see lives changed by living as a follower of Jesus
•We look for people of peace- we pray and seek who to invite and watch for opportunities to show the love of Jesus to others
•We look for kairos moments - A kairos moment is a time where we see God at work. We expect God to do amazing things and we look for them
Written by our team, the Campus Thrive Curriculum is grounded in the word of God. The purpose of this curriculum is to familiarize students with biblical principles in a way that is engaging, relatable, and fun. It is interactive and uses contemporary examples that are applicable to the lives of middle school students. The lessons are accompanied with a skit and a list of games. We have 4 sets of curricula with 10 lessons each: Life with God, Why we Pray, Fruit of the Spirit, Parables of Jesus.
